Appearance, Function and Applications Varilight Single Blanking Plates are designed to cover up where Single Sockets, etc have been removed or to cover wall boxes. ………………………………………….. In light of the current ongoing outbreak of Human Coronavirus (Covid-19), we arehighlighting the availability and effectiveness of Varilight’s Antimicrobial Copper Cu29 range ofswitches & sockets in protecting against viruses. Antimicrobial copper works alongside routine cleaning and sanitisation procedures toreduce the spread of infection, making this range ideal for healthcare and domesticenvironments. Research from the University of Southampton found that a coronavirus (in this case HuCoV-229E) died on copper surfaces within minutes compared to many days on some othersurfaces.* * Excerpt from: Warnes SL, Little ZR, Keevil CW. 2015. Human coronavirus 229E remains infectious on commontouch surface materials. mBio 6(6):e01697-15. doi:10.1128/mBio.01697-15: On copper, and a range of copper alloys — collectively termed ‘antimicrobial copper’ — the coronaviruswas rapidly inactivated (within a few minutes, for simulated fingertip contamination). Exposure to copperdestroyed the virus completely and irreversibly, leading the researchers to conclude that antimicrobialcopper surfaces could be employed in communal areas and at any mass gatherings to help reduce the spreadof respiratory viruses and protect public health. Germs die rapidly on copper, which keeps working 24/7, in between regular cleans. OurTarnishing Antimicrobial copper range is made from solid copper so this effect won’treduce overtime. Normal tarnishing or wear of Antimicrobial Copper surfaces will not impair theantiviral effectiveness of the product. ………………………………………….. Although the Antimicrobial/Antiviral Copper range was designed to manage germs on contact, this range can also be used in properties requiring a distressed finish, as they develop a natural patina. This patina can be reset by polishing with Brasso or similar, which removes all patina effects and allows you to add a different distressed finish to your own taste. Alternatively, if you require a polished copper finish, then regular cleaning is a must. ………………………………………….. The VARILIGHT Antimicrobial/Antiviral Copper range is made from un-lacquered and un-coated solid copper and comes complete with solid copper switch rockers to ensure maximum Antimicrobial/Antiviral efficacy and carries the Cu29 logo. Clip on faceplates remove the need for visible fixing screws, providing a flat surface to facilitate cleaning. Normal tarnishing of Antimicrobial/Antiviral copper surfaces will not impair the antibacterial effectiveness of the product. ………………………………………….. ………………………………………….. Please Note: These products are Anti-Microbial Unlaquered Copper, therefore they tarnish as expected. If you prefer a lacquered version, look at Urban Polished copper Cleaning Please follow the instructions on cleaning below, which is also shown in the instructions provided with the product. Never apply masking tape or other similar tape to the product. Avoid the use of any cleaning chemicals and always use a Gasket on freshly plastered, painted or damp walls as the plates may tarnish. (Plaster can take up to 6 months to dry out). A Gasket can be made from the packaging the product comes in, or a plastic bag can be cut to stop the plate touching the plaster. Unfortunately, if these Instructions are not followed, and the plate is damaged, it will void the product warranty. ………………………………………….. Please Note: These products are Anti-Microbial Unlaquered Copper, therefore they tarnish as expected. If you prefer a lacquered version, look at Urban Polished copper ………………………………………….. Cleaning and sanitisation This product will develop a natural patina. Routine cleaning and sanitisation procedures must continue to be implemented to reduce the potential for infection and to keep the Antimicrobial/Antiviral Copper Alloy surface free of dirt and grime that could prevent contact with the surface and inhibit Antimicrobial/Antiviral performance. The appropriate cleaning agent depends on the type of soiling and the measure of sanitisation required. To remain effective the surface must not be coated in any way. Do not wax, paint, lacquer, varnish, or otherwise coat this product. Normal tarnishing or wear of Antimicrobial/Antiviral Copper Alloy surfaces will not impair the antibacterial effectiveness of the product. An effective cleaning agent for use on Antimicrobial/Antiviral copper product is citric acid. Apply a small amount to a polishing cloth and lightly wipe the affected area. ………………………………………….. This cleaning method with Citric Acid will remove bacteria build up. If you require the natural patina/tarnishing/distressed effect to be removed, this can be achieved by polishing with Brasso or similar, which will bring the product back to an original natural polished copper metal. Be sure not to use a cloth that is abrasive, unless you require a brushed effect. …………………………………………..
