Calgary, Canada-based on-demand print and information solutions provider WCD recently completed a specialist project using antimicrobial polyester film to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 among workers at a local distributor’s warehouse.
WCD was tasked by WII Projects Calgary, a planning, design, and construction business, to create a cafe/kitchen experience, with the aim of overhauling the look of the facility and ensuring maximum protection for staff using the refreshment area.
According to WCD, the primary challenge of the project centered around the protection element, with the company having to source a material that would help cut the risk of the virus spread among workers, while also not impacting the look of the new images or surfaces underneath.
WCD went with Drytac Protac AMP for the project, a clear textured polyester surface protection film with Microban antimicrobial properties. The film functioned as a laminate and was applied to surfaces throughout the kitchen area.
Stacy Underhill, signage solution specialist at WCD, adds, “Thanks to its matte finish, we were able to protect the surface’s graphics, without light washout to the graphics.”
