Deutsche Hospitality Adds Nano Coating to Hotel Surfaces

Nano Coating to Hotel Surfaces

Deutsche Hospitality has gone the extra mile to safeguard the well-being of its guests and staff with the introduction of a high-tech solution.

The company has joined forces with the Frankfurt-based hygiene products supplier IBC Europe GmbH to add a special anti-microbial nano-coating to all hotel surfaces which are frequently touched.

Following the successful roll-out of this cooperation agreement to the company’s hotels in Austria, Germany and Switzerland, the project to apply a protective sealant to contact surfaces will now also be implemented internationally. The touchpoints involved include the reception area, door handles, light switches, lift buttons, taps and soap dispensers.

The protective film used has the effect of destroying any viruses and germs once they come into contact with the sealed surface.

“The health and safety of our guests and employees are our number one priority at all times,” stated Marcus Bernhardt, CEO of Deutsche Hospitality.

“For this reason, we are working on an ongoing basis to develop our hygiene and protective measures further and are guided in this regard by expert recommendations.” 

Rainer Lindau, Managing Director of IBC Europe GmbH, explained: “Our anti-microbial nano coating is simple to apply and easy to clean and has been dermatologically tested. This makes it particularly well suited to hotels. The AIRDAL Coating Technique eliminates any opportunity for germs to spread.”

A comprehensive range of hygiene and protective measures is being implemented as part of Deutsche Hospitality’s Safe Travels Campaign. Innovations such as the nano coating of high-traffic touch points, physician-authorised coronavirus tests at reception, and staff vaccinations performed by a company doctor are being continuously introduced.
