Harlequin Floors Announces Enhanced Harlequin Cascade
October 22, 2020
Harlequin Floors, the global leader in advanced technology flooring for dance and performing arts, has announced an improved version of its flagship vinyl performance floor, Harlequin Cascade™, now with BioCote® antimicrobial protection.
BioCote® antimicrobial technology is manufactured into Harlequin Cascade, creating a performance surface that is protected from microbes such as bacteria and mold that can cause odors, staining and material degradation. The result is a floor that is easier to keep hygienically clean by working constantly to reduce the presence of microbes on the floor surface.
“As hygiene and cleanliness have become a crucial priority in today’s world, companies turned to Harlequin for an effective solution for their dance floors, “said Pat Basileo, Chief Operating Officer at American Harlequin. “We are always striving to provide innovative products for our customers. Now with the improved Cascade having antimicrobial protection, along with our new Disinfectant plus Daily Cleaner, we are able to deliver a complete hygiene solution for our customers.”
BioCote® integral antimicrobial protection uses silver ion technology and is proven to offer protection for the expected lifetime of the product; it will not wear out or wash off. This technology reduces microbes on the floor by up to 86% in 15 minutes and up to 99.99% in 24 hours. BioCote® technology does not protect users or others against disease causing bacteria, germs, viruses or other harmful organisms. This technology is not a substitute for good hygiene and/or cleaning practices.
“Harlequin Cascade will continue to be the floor that dancers love and trust and now it will be even better,” says Basileo. The silver ion additive is inert and has no effect on the appearance or performance characteristics of Harlequin Cascade.
Harlequin is the only performance flooring company to partner with BioCote®, market leaders in antimicrobial technology.
