Harlequin Cascade - Now With BioCote® Antimicrobial Protection

 BioCote® Antimicrobial Protection

Harlequin Cascade has been the choice of the world’s most prestigious dance and performing arts companies for many years because dancers know and trust the floor.

But in these difficult times, it is more important than ever to focus on improving hygiene, so Harlequin have now produced a new, improved Cascade with BioCote® antimicrobial protection.

It is the Harlequin Cascade that you know and love but with an added ingredient with proven antibacterial properties that helps keep the floor hygienically clean, so reducing the risk of cross contamination by working constantly to reduce the presence of microbes on the surface of the flooring.

BioCote® Antimicrobial Technology

BioCote® antimicrobial technology is manufactured into the new Harlequin Cascade, creating a dance surface upon which microbes, such as bacteria and viruses, cannot survive.

Unlike some antimicrobial protection, it will not wear out or wash off and is proven to offer protection for the expected lifetime of the product.

This technology reduces microbes on the floor by up to 86% in 15 minutes and up to 99.99% in 24 hours. It works continuously and has been proven effective against a wide range of microbes including influenza A virus (H1N1) and feline coronavirus (strain Munich).

The BioCote® silver ion additive is inert and has no effect on the appearance or performance characteristics of the floor; it is the Harlequin Cascade that you know and love but now with added BioCote® Antimicrobial Protection.

Regular Cleaning Routine

Regular cleaning of your dance studio floors with Harlequin Vinyl Daily Cleaner is still essential to ensure the best levels of hygiene without compromising the quality of the Harlequin vinyl dance floor.

Harlequin Vinyl Daily Cleaner contains the biocide Benzalkonium Chloride which provides antibacterial properties and has been proven to be effective against most bacteria and viruses, including novel human coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.

Harlequin cleaning products are the only cleaners specifically designed for use on Harlequin performance floors and will ensure your dance floor is kept in the optimum condition for your dancers. Using other cleaning products could have an adverse effect on the floor and may invalidate the guarantee.
