Speed, ease, and expertise: the only antibacterial wipes you need

antibacterial wipes

Uniwipe offers the next generation of antibacterial wipes with the highest standards of protection from infection.

Uniwipe was founded two decades ago to produce the next generation of wipes and provide the highest standards of hygiene to homes, workplaces and people. As technologists and manufacturers, the Uniwipe team works together closely to innovate and produce antibacterial wipes which meet the demanding hygiene criteria of the industries they support. Over the years the team has earned itself an industry leading reputation for its exceptional specification, specialist knowledge and exacting service standards.

Uniwipe has been helping the medical industry fight against bacteria and viruses for over 12 years. Its wipes are recognised as being among the most technically advanced in the world; and are now frequently seen throughout testing facilities up and down the country, favoured not only for their trusted effectiveness but also for their ease of use and high-quality fabrics.

The COVID-19 pandemic has elevated the importance of highly effective cleaning products and trusted manufacturing partners. Hygiene measures and cleaning routines have always been critical to medical and care industries, but now they have become a priority consideration for everyone.

COVID-19 has resulted in a laser focus on the importance of cleanliness and hygiene management across all health and social care services, with a heightened expectancy from the public to go above and beyond what could ever have been expected of them. We will never return to pre-pandemic cleaning routines as we all learn to live with this virus, and future-proofing cleaning strategies and suppliers should be a priority.

Uniwipe is committed to helping customers in the healthcare sectors and beyond find fitting solutions to the cleaning challenges they face.

Not all antibacterial wipes are made the same

Many wipe brands outsource all or large volumes of production for their business. This typically leads to reduced control of the full process, resulting in frustrating supply chain issues, delivery delays, panic-buying less effective products, and ultimately unnecessary stress on businesses.

At Uniwipe, all antibacterial wipes are made in-house in the company’s own UK factory. Total end-to-end control means stringent quality control and monitoring processes are continually reviewed and implemented. Before a wipe reaches the consumer it passes through at least 10 product efficacy and quality checks, including raw material quality controls and formula checks to fabric strength and packaging integrity.

The Uniwipe UK manufacturing facility is dedicated to producing branded products, from large scale bulk orders through to bespoke orders, and meeting worldwide shipment requirements. All its products offer the reassurance of exacting standards of in-house manufacturing together, with independent laboratory-tested performance: a total solution and service to make the sourcing, purchasing and delivery of highly effective wipes quick, easy and reliable.

“Our mission has always been to have total control of the production process from start to finish and every step in between. We believe that is the only way we can ensure our clients always get what they need, when they need it, without fail,” says Uniwipe Managing Director Edward Rabey. “We are in control of ensuring we have a full contingency of raw material stock and that each and every wipe meets our own exacting quality. Our innovation teams are fantastic and continually work to ensure we are at the forefront of product development whilst also working on bespoke projects to meet client needs.”

High performance wet wipes for a wide range of surfaces

All Uniwipe products are put through rigorous testing processes, including being professionally tested in independent laboratories to ensure compliance to the highest European standards.

Uniwipe antibacterial wipes achieve the highest EN standard accreditation available and are clinically proven to help prevent the spread of germs and infections by killing bacteria and viruses. By choosing the right commercial cleaning products, users can help eliminate cross-contamination, reduce cleaning time and prevent waste.

For example, the Uniwipe Clinical Disinfectant Midi-Wipe is designed specifically for high-traffic, high-risk areas, helping to eliminate cross-contamination by leaving every surface sanitised and clean. With outstanding microbicidal performance, these wipes kill 99.999% of bacteria, as well as viruses including SARS-Cov-2, which causes COVID-19. Uniwipe Clinical Midi-Wipes are independently laboratory-tested in accordance with EN14476, the European testing standard now commonly known as ‘the coronavirus test’.

The team at Uniwipe has worked collaboratively with clients across a number of industries for years, in order to gain valuable ongoing feedback as part of their research and development process. This industry-leading programme of continuous product development keeps the company at the forefront of cleaning excellence. An example of this is the universal feedback from healthcare providers highlighting that a number of brands use substandard antibacterial wipe materials that break, dry out and irritate hands causing untold frustrations and issues with colleagues. This is why Uniwipe products are dermatologically tested and alcohol-free to be safe on hands while being fast-acting and tough, even in the most challenging clinical environment without compromise. The unique Uniwipe formulation also means that, while they are extremely tough on bacteria and viruses, the wipes do not harm surfaces. Regularly wiping over surfaces with inferior harsh chemicals will cause damage over time; but Uniwipe wipes do not damage surfaces even with the most frequent use.

The Midi-Wipe is made from a unique premium fabric which holds more liquid than standard antibacterial wipes. This provides an even spread of liquid, ensuring all parts of the surface is covered, without the wipe drying out. Thoughtfully designed packaging ensures easy single wipe dispensing, while preventing wipes from drying out.

The Mighty Midi offers:

  • Certified sanitising efficiency exceeding EN13727, EN1276, EN14476, EN16615, EN14561;
  • Proven 99.999% bacteria kill rate in 30 seconds;
  • Kills SARS-Cov-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in 30 seconds;
  • Effective against viruses including norovirus, influenza A (H1N1), herpes simplex, hepatitis C;
  • Dual action sanitising and cleansing;
  • Dermatologically tested and kind to hands; and
  • Eliminates cross-contamination.

Keeping cleaning simple

Uniwipe produces a range of wipe types, each of which is formulated to be suitable and effective for its desired uses. With the hygiene landscape changing significantly and permanently over the last year, pressures are already high enough without the added challenge of navigating complicated product choices. The margin for error is extremely tight and is only exacerbated by conflicting arguments and a myriad of information sources.

Colour coding of antibacterial wipe types can be a complex subject; and, with the exception of the healthcare sector, no national or international compulsory standards exist in the cleaning industry. The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) has formulated guidance aimed at raising standards and reducing the liability of cross-infection between cleaning areas. Generally, the colours are sufficient to cover the most probable hazards, while establishing an easily understood and recognised system. Uniwipe implemented the BICSc colour code to help clients navigate their product range with ease. The range of wipes has been developed to best suit a wide variety of surfaces and fitting for its associated colour-coded area.
