CASALL LAUNCHES TRAINING GLOVE THAT EFFECTIVELY REDUCES 99% OF BACTERIA AND VIRUSES WITHIN 2 HOURS

In January, Casall will be launching a completely unique training glove treated with ViralOff® technology from the Swedish company Polygiene. The treatment has in ISO18184: 2019 test* shown a reduction of virus by 99% within 2 hours on the treated material, with a high effect against a number of virus including the Influeza A, Corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) and bacteria.

 

The glove is made of a high-quality stretch material for superb comfort, in combination with anti-slip in the palm of the hand for an effective grip. The ViralOff® treatment makes the gloves self-cleaning.

 


“We always strive to be at the forefront when it comes to product innovation and are therefore very happy to be able to launch this unique glove that can be an active contribution to reducing the spread of infection in the training environment. Wearing a full-coverage training glove at the gym can in itself be an effective way to refrain from touching your face. In addition, the ViralOff® treatment ensures that any viruses on the gloves are eliminated with each new use. The glove is designed for a training environment but can of course be used in other everyday situations ", says Nanna Hedlund, CEO of Casall Sport.

Think of it as hand sanitizer for the gloves. There is a huge demand for products with antiviral features right now. With the Polygiene ViralOff® treatment, we set a new standard for the function and help people in these tough times", says Ulrika Björk, CEO of Polygiene.

 

ViralOff® is Oeko-tex® certified.

Casall Exercise glove ViralOff® will be launched on January 26 and will be sold on
Casall.com, in Casall's concept stores and at selected retailers globally.

 

The glove is available in the colour black, in sizes XXS-XL.

RRP: 39.90 EURO, 399 SEK, 399 NOK, 350 DK, 45 CHF, £39.95

Polygiene ViralOff® protects treated materials from bacterial or viral contamination for reduced spread of infection but does not guarantee protection against disease.
