Antimicrobial Products for the Office and Classroom
We know the importance of keeping a household full of children healthy and happy! However, it's also important to keep other populated areas such as classrooms and offices healthy and germ-free as well. An effective solution to protect communal items from bacteria in these environments is to use antimicrobial products, such as staplers, pencil sharpeners, and hole punches. These items tend to be among those that are consistently used and shared among individuals. Bostitch Office has many antimicrobial supplies varying in different types of staplers and pencil sharpeners; be sure to browse them all!
Using antimicrobial products is just one of many ways to keep healthy behaviors in the classroom, at home, and in the office. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle by incorporating daily exercise into our schedules can also help us stay active and fit while balancing a busy schedule. Cleaning your workspace and staying home if you’re sick can also help stop the spread of germs and keep your workplace, whether it be at home, in an office or classroom, germ-free.
Agion Antimicrobial Protection
So, what exactly does antimicrobial mean? We’re happy you asked! According to the National Pesticide Information Center, antimicrobial agents "kill or slow the spread of microorganisms.” These microbes include bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
So, how does it work? Antimicrobial products are created by adding the growth-inhibiting chemical agent during manufacturing. When the unwanted bacteria and viruses encounter the antimicrobial product, the cell wall of the living microbe is broken, destroying its function and reproduction. Many of our products such as our Professional Stapler and QuietSharp™ Glow Classroom Electric Pencil Sharpener have Agion Antimicrobial protection, keeping your office and classroom products looking sleek and most importantly, clean.
We all know that staplers are a hot commodity around the office, especially when they have the infamous Bostitch Office No-Jam Technology built into them! With staplers being one of the most communal products around the office, it was important that we created products that help the spread of germs in the office. With that being said, many of our best-selling staplers such as the Dynamo Compact Stapler with Pencil Sharpener and Epic Office Stapler were created with antimicrobial protection.
Working in a classroom, it can feel like students have a different illness every week. With so many students using the same classroom items such as sharpeners, it’s no wonder why illnesses spread like wildfire throughout a classroom. To help stop the spread of such illnesses and bacteria, we’ve made sure that our most popular sharpeners were created with antimicrobial agents. Sharpeners such as the SuperPro™ Glow Classroom Electric Pencil Sharpener and the Manual Pencil Sharpener were designed with antimicrobial protected brushed metal cases for classroom survivability, even against the toughest germs.
