The antibacterially active surface of REISS SmartClean inhibits the growth of bacteria which are exposed to the antibacterial agent in the furniture surface. The biocidal substances in the antibacterial agent disturb important cell functions, disrupt cell division and multiplication and eventually kill the bacteria. The antibacterial effect of SmartClean is only limited to the material surface. The antibacterial agent does not pass over objects and food on the furniture surface, and does not emit into the room air. In addition, the active substances are completely harmless to humans and can be used safely in food-processing industries.
The antibacterial effectiveness of REISS SmartClean has been tested and certified by the William Küster Institute for Hygiene, Environment and Medicine; Hohenstein Laboratories according to JIS Z 2801: 2000 and ISO 22196: 2011-08. Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538, Escherichia coli ATCC 8739 and MRSA ATCC 33592 were tested representatively for relevant bacteria in food-processing and medical environments.

REISS office furniture with SmartClean feature an antibacterially active surface, which is durable, hygienic and easy to clean. In addition, they are resistant to most chemicals and high temperature, and possess excellent mechanical properties. Equipped with a neither corrosive nor oxidizing high quality surface, they perfectly suit:
- Care and health facilities
- Public facilities
- Buildings with high public traffic
- Scientific institutions
REISS office furniture with SmartClean not only offer quality and function at the highest level but additional health protection – a real advantage for every workplace.
Basic cleaning is performed with commercial detergents or grease-dissolving all-purpose cleaners and hot water. It is essential to avoid abrasive detergents and sponges which irreparably damage the surface structure. Balsam detergents may leave a film on the furniture surface and are thus not suitable. Contact with aggressive cleaning agents or decalcifiers should be limited, drops should be removed immediately.
Intensive cleaning is performed with usual grease-dissolving detergents suitable for plastic surfaces, following manufacturer‘s instructions. It generally includes spraying and soaking followed by basic cleaning. Before the first use, it is recommended to test the detergent on a non-visible spot.
Decorative laminates are also suitable for special cleaning performed in e.g. nursing and medical facilities. They are resistant to disinfectants based on:
• Alcohols: e.g. Ethanol 70 %
• Aldehydes: e.g. Formalin 1 % and 5 %
• Phenols: e.g. P-chloro-m-cresol 0.3 %
Strongly dyeing or oxidizing substances (e.g. hydrogen peroxide) can regardless lead to surface changes. These substances should be removed immediately from the surface. REISS does not take any liability for self-inflicted damages.
