Copper clothing can keep staff and members safe

The pandemic has forced us to re-evaluate approaches to preventing the spread of viruses
– Rory Donnelly

Snap Fitness franchisee, Kunal Patel, is kitting out all staff – from personal trainers to cleaners – with copper-infused masks and gloves from medtech company, Copper Clothing.

Copper Clothing infuses copper ions into fabrics – which are proven to kill strains of coronavirus, including COVID-19.

“We know this is a worrying time for many, so we wanted to make our gym spaces a safe haven for our employees and customers,” says Patel.

“The science behind copper-infused fabrics proves that the material can stop the spread of bacteria, fungi and viruses. When we spoke with Copper Clothing, it had recently carried out tests that showed the fabric also kills COVID-19. We knew then it was a safety measure we had to invest in.”

Rory Donnelly, clinical research director at Copper Clothing said: “The pandemic has forced everyone to re-evaluate their approach to preventing the spread of diseases and viruses and the latest tests have found copper ion-bonded fabrics have a 99.99 per cent success rate in killing COVID-19. This is because of copper’s oligodynamic properties which exert a lethal effect on pathogenic cells, making it a natural, chemical-free solution.”
