March 26, 2020 - no comments. Posted by in Uncategorized.

TilePlans have been asked by for advice on use of our antimicrobial technology to combat the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses.

As the Coronavirus spread becomes a growing worldwide concern, anti-viral claims should be approached with caution so we encourage our customers to do the same.

Here we clarify the key details.

Will TilePlan Antimicrobial floor kill Coronavirus?

Coronavirus COVID-19 is possibly a fatty outer membrane or envelope virus.

The active substances in our Antimicrobial PVC material have been successfully tested against other envelope viruses, such as Influenza, Avian flu and SARS.

It would therefore be reasonable to suggest the same effectiveness against COVID-19, however testing on COVID-19 is not currently available.

Anti-virus testing procedure is currently much more costly compared with antibacterial testing and the testing will need to be carried out in the exact grade of PVC as used in our floor systems.


Meanwhile TilePlan Antimicrobial
remains a worthwhile long term hygienic floor investment with long lasting ingredients that eliminate the bacteria which cause contamination and acts as a complementary measure to routine cleaning to fight against many infections such as, E. coli, Listeria and MRSA.

The Safety & Health Practitioner – the official magazine of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health commented:

TilePlans says its industrial interlocking floor tile system offers multiple benefits for users in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications.

The company says the floor system is designed to be flexible – offering industry professionals the ability to design the work areas to their own specifications.

The tiles are designed to meet rigorous Health and Safety regulations while also adding clear work zones and walkways in the process.

Tileplans offers a Demarcation Line tile which removes the need to forever paint lines or use sticky tape lines.

The floor tiles are made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), described as robust, durable and very long lasting – a versatile alternative to painting floors.

TilePlans adds that “visual management and colour coding of work areas in a ‘Kanban style’ adds to the benefits for production managers.

The tiles help to absorb sound and reduce vibration, and are far more comfortable to work on.

The company says laying the tiles requires no specialist skill however a full installation service is available.
