Big Wipes are antiviral!
The best has just got even better! The market-leading Big Wipes brand is known for its unmatched cleaning power, packing a punch to grease, grime and bacteria on the go. Now that punch is even mightier, as Big Wipes achieves antiviral accreditation. They are the first industrial-grade cleaning wipes in the world to gain EN14476, the stringent European Antiviral Standard for chemical disinfectants.
Brilliantly, the certification is retrospective, which means that every Big Wipes tub with a BW in the batch number is antiviral!
‘This is fantastic news for Big Wipes and all our customers. Big Wipes has become the first industrial heavy duty cleaning wipes supplier in the UK merchant sector to pass rigorous EN14476 antiviral lab tests. Same all-purpose cleaning performance, same dermatologically tested formula NOW even better with full laboratory tested antiviral performance and proven effectiveness against Coronavirus. Not only are Big Wipes the best cleaning wipes on the market, they now also offer antiviral as well as antibacterial efficacy’, enthused Nigel Dibbo, Managing Director of Big Wipes.
“Instead of using separate products to clean and sanitise, the Big Wipes industrial range of cleaning and disinfecting wipes offers everything a tradesperson needs in one portable package. This not only saves time and money, but also gives users and their customers peace of mind”, Dibbo added.
What are Big Wipes antiviral wipes effective against?
The Big Wipes range of wipes is “PT1” (product type for hands) and “PT2” (product type for surfaces) registered. This means that they are suitable for the disinfection and sanitisation of both hands and surfaces. Big Wipes have been proven to be effective against enveloped viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Efficacy has also been shown against: hepatitis B and C, HIV, influenza, herpes, zika, significant paediatric disease pathogens, cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus, Hanta viruses, dengue virus, yellow fever virus including FSME, filo virus (Marburg, Ebola virus), Lassa virus and a whole host of others.
At the same time, Big Wipes continue to offer a massive >99.9% antibacterial protection. They are compliant with BS EN 1276, the rigorous European standard for the bactericidal activity of chemical disinfectants.
Antiviral wipes that are kind to your skin
Big Wipes not only eliminate grime and microbes, they are also kind to your skin. The Big Wipes formula contains four of the world’s greatest skin conditioners: Aloe Vera, Lanolin, Vitamin E and Glycerine. These all help to nourish and protect the skin. Furthermore, Big Wipes are dermatologically tested (on humans, not animals) with zero levels of skin irritation recorded. Free from harmful solvents, toxins, preservatives, parabens and bleach, the formula is also biodegradable.
All in one cleaning and disinfecting solution
“Our Big Wipes range takes versatile, portable hand cleaning and disinfecting to a whole new level. Big Wipes are super fast and effective – and up to date with all the latest safety requirements,” concludes Dibbo. “Our pre-moistened wipes consistently deliver the right amount of active ingredient in every wipe to prevent cross-contamination. No measuring, no mixing, no mess.”
Hands are a busy tradesperson’s most important tools as they are their livelihood. Therefore, cleaning and disinfecting them effectively while still being able to care for them is extremely important.
