Urbann launches an Anti-microbial lectern: a world first
Updated: Sep 14, 2020
Urbann is the first and only manufacturer in the world to offer an anti-microbial lectern.
The COVID crisis brought everyone to review what they could do to bring safer ways and safer places. As industrial designers, we met the challenge and developed a new finish for the lectern's top plate that rapidly kills 99% of bacterias and micro-organisms and deactivates viruses. This finish is already used in hospital furniture across America. You can now offer a safer environment with an Urbann's lectern featuring our exclusive SAF+R anti-microbial finish (more info).
Our lecterns will feature a version with our exclusive anti-microbial finish.
The top plate of the lectern is the panel where you put your hands and your notes while giving your speech. This is the area mostly in contact with the user. A special paint finish on that part that kills 99% of bacterias and micro-organisms on contact and deactivates viruses with the same efficiency is a fantastic asset.
We think this is a great feature especially for hotels and conference centers as this could certainly reassure their clients.
The first units will be ready for shipping in August.
Upgrade your existing lectern
If you already have a lectern from us, you are not left alone as you can turn your lectern to a SAF+R anti-microbial unit. Thanks to our modular design approach, an upgrade package permits actual users of our lecterns to upgrade their lectern and replace the top panel with an anti-microbial SAF+R panel.
Most models bought in the last 7 years are able to accept this upgrade (more info on upgrade).
