COMMERCIAL FLOORING Anti viral surfaces - Gerflor Solutions against coronavirus


Gerflor Solutions for Inhibiting Virus Growth

An infected person coughs or sneezes, sings or even loudly talks, producing droplets that are sprayed onto their surroundings and on different surfaces. These droplets can land on the floor. Cross contamination risk is increased when :


Using wheelchairs
Using bags or other item that have been put on the floor
Taking off shoes


Since surfaces like flooring can be vectors of cross contamination, Gerflor has worked in partnership with Virhealth, an independent laboratory and expert in virology, to test our flooring solutions.

The durability of viruses on surfaces can vary from a few hours to a few days depending on the type of material.

Gerflor surfaces have been tested according to the ISO 21702 standard with very positive results.

Floors: Inhibiting Virus Growth by 99.7% after 2 hours

Gerflor floors treated with Evercare® or Protecsol® 2 have anti-viral activity against Human Coronaviruses : they reduce the number of virus by 99,7% after 2 hours.


ISO 21702 is a norm to test antiviral activity on plastic and other non porous surfaces. It defines a standard testing protocol with 90% humidity, 68F° (20C°) temperature, after 24h00. Tests conducted by a third part lab (Virhealth) according to ISO21702 standard, support Evercare and Protecsol’s anti viral activity.
