Grangers, who have been protecting the world against the elements since 1937, with their cleaning and protection products, are delighted to announce that they have been making grounds in protection for NHS workers and other health care professionals.
During these turbulent times, Grangers believes that its more important now, than ever, to extend the life of clothing and equipment by fully protecting them against the elements. Traditionally an outdoor brand, Grangers feels that the responsibility to protect its users is greater than ever, with a particular focus on NHS workers and other global medical professionals who fight Covid-19 and other infections on a daily basis.
One of the biggest limitations when faced with limited supply of PPE is single-use or single-wear. Grangers have been working closely with a Clinician, to further understand these limitations and how Grangers can support. The team are now working closely with NHS experts to increase development in this area, exploring ways to extend the life of scrubs and other equipment, that help to protect against life-threatening infections.
Although this is just the beginning of a very important venture for Grangers, professional testing has already taken place allowing Grangers to start work on projects which will help to extend the use of scrubs being used on the front line.
Karolina Jones, General Manager, said 'During these times, we wanted to see what we could do to assist the NHS and medical professionals world-wide and reduce the waste of single-use and single-wear PPE. The support that we've already been able to provide, along with ongoing research, makes it a very rewarding project. We're incredibly grateful for the professional guidance we've received to further our research and development in this area. We pride ourselves on protecting our customers and the world they love to explore, and this exciting project will allow us to go one step further'.
