What is SHIELDme Disinfectant?

SHIELDme Disinfectant is an Electronically Activated Water containing Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL) as active ingredient, this formula was declared by FDA on 2002 as a high level disinfectant. SHIELDme is in compliant with British Standards & European Norms BSEN 14476, 14204, 1276, 13704, 13697 & 1656.

SHIELDme Disinfectant is fast and effective and instantly kills 99.99% of harmful bacteria and viruses. Non-Alcoholic, Non-Irritating and Non-Flammable. SHIELDme contains no preservatives, fragrances or essential oils.

SHIELDme Disinfectant is produced from three everyday components: water, food grade salt, and electricity. SHIELDme Disinfectant is a stable packaged Hypochlorous acid (HOCl), an environmentally friendly biocide which represents a monumental step forward in health care and hygiene.

Why haven’t I seen this before?

Hypochlorous was discovered in the 19th century by a British scientist. It was actually manufactured for the first time in the 1960’s. There was always a problem however in that no one was able to make a stable version that had a shelf life so it could be packaged. The only organisations that could take advantage of this incredible product were large scale industrial and agricultural operations such as dairy and poultry units, where they produced non-stable Hypochlorous onsite for immediate use. Our team and the scientists have worked out how to stabilise the active ingredient so we can now make it available to everyone.

What is the pH of SHIELDme?

The pH of SHIELDme Disinfectant is neutral at pH7. This means it won’t sting.

Will it make my clothes smell?

I have asthma. Is it safe?

Is this suitable for vegans please?

How often would you have to apply this disinfectant in order to ensure that there are no viruses or bacteria on the surface?

In other words, how long would the protection from bacteria and viruses last?

As long as no contamination comes again in contact with the same surface. Some other chemical/Alcoholic disinfectant manufacturers claim that they are effective for longer time, but the truth is that it is chemical compounds and the exposure to it, is much dangerous if they are available on the surface.

In one IBC (1,000 Litre) of SHIELDme Disinfectant; How many passes can be completed?

The tunnel designed to have floating base with weight sensor that allow the spray to operate once the person step on the platform and switch off once the person step off. Mist density: Fine Mist spot 3-7 microns.

By using the Fogger, will this affect the Fire Alarm in the building?

Do not apply the fog directly to smoke detectors. Typical application is to direct the fogger’s nozzle 45 degree toward surfaces need to be disinfected and by taking into consideration that the disinfectant is a (99.5%) water having a considerably heavy weight droplet that naturally falls by gravity on surfaces, therefore fogging the disinfectant will not trigger the intelligent fire alarm system.

Why does SHIELDme have a spa-like odor?

SHIELDme contains HOCL, which is made by ionization of salt and water, this is what causes an odor similar to that of a spa, however, it disappears after only few seconds.

Reviews

Hear what SHIELDme™ customers have to say about our products.

We were recommended the Shield fogging system by a colleague from another boarding school, a great recommendation the equipment has become an invaluable part of our cleaning and disinfection regime. It is a simple piece of kit, but allows us to disinfect large or small areas quickly and efficiently. We have saved countless hours of extra labour, and it allows us to operate with the knowledge that we are keeping our community as safe as we can.

I would like to say how impressed I was with the response from the company, & the time taken by Charlotte to show us how to use our fogging machines that we have now purchased, the machines are working well, would highly recommend, great service delivery all round.

Steve Contract Manager

We are an Academy in South East London, we have nearly 1000 students and staff, using SHIELDme fogging machine is a major problem solver in disinfecting halls, classrooms, corridors in a such short time( Literally few minutes) and efficiently to be 100% confident to say these places are safe to use. We are using SHIELDme automatic hand sanitizers too in key places within our building where the feedback from our students , staff and visitors make them feel safe to be in our Academy. Thank you SHIELDme.
