District Administration Magazine Honors Virginia-Based Innovator
PRLog - Nov. 21, 2013 - LYNCHBURG, Va. -- NanoSeptic® surface products by NanoTouch Materials have been recognized for making a positive difference in education by K12 leaders who named it to District Administration magazine’s “Readers’ Choice Top 100 Product for 2013.”
The winners, selected by District Administration’s editors from a record 1,800-plus nominations, were products that received the highest number of nominations and documented support from K12 leaders. In recognizing the most innovative products, the annual Top 100 Award informs superintendents and other senior school district leaders about products their colleagues around the country are using to help their districts excel.
“The fact that we had a record number of readers participating in this recognition program is a testament to the interest that K12 leaders have in products for improving educational outcomes and operational efficiencies,” says JD Solomon, District Administration’s editorial director. “All of the honorees in our Top 100 program should be very proud of their achievement.”
Schools across the country are fighting to control the spread of illness. So it’s no surprise that administrators and environmental services managers are taking steps to improve the cleanliness of their schools by adopting self-cleaning NanoSeptic surfaces in and out of the classroom. NanoSeptic products have self-cleaning surfaces that continuously kill bacteria, viruses and fungi using nanotechnology instead of diluted poisons or heavy metals. The product line includes peel-and-stick skins for touch points like door push pads, push bars, and handles. It also includes portable products like counter mats, snack mats and desk mats.
“When you find a product that not only creates a cleaner school in the hopes of reducing student and teacher absenteeism, but also improves our image in the eyes of the parents, that’s something special,” says John Patterson, superintendent at Liberty Christian Academy in Lynchburg, Va. “Using nanotechnology powered self-cleaning surfaces in our school creates a cleaner environment and communicates our commitment to the wellbeing of students, teachers and visitors at every touch point.”
“Schools will continue to use one-time kill products like disinfectants, but NanoTouch enhances their cleaning efforts by working to eliminate even hard-to-kill microbes such as C. Diff, 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” says Mark Sisson, co-founder of NanoTouch. “And because alcohol-based hand sanitizers pose a risk of fire around kids, NanoTouch products help to fill that void in schools.”
NanoTouch is the world’s first manufacturer of printed, portable, removable, and self-cleaning NanoSeptic surface products that constantly kill bacteria, viruses, and fungi. The Virginia-based NanoTouch Materials also serves the hospitality, travel, and food service industries with products such as travel mats, place mats, desk mats, and TV channel guides, menus and menu covers in addition to their line of facility touch points.
