HUNTERSVILLE, N.C., Feb. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- AEGIS Microbe Shield® Surface Protection, technology that provides antimicrobial surface protection for high-touch, high-traffic surfaces, announces it has recently expanded into new categories from partnerships with Sunwing Airlines and Park'N Fly airport shuttle services. Major metro transit authorities, including BART (San Francisco), SEPTA (Philadelphia) and DDOT (Detroit), along with hundreds of apartment, condo and office buildings, schools and universities across the U.S. and Canada have seen successful reduction in antimicrobial growth from AEGIS applications and testing over the past several months.

Backed by more than 40 years of testing, AEGIS has a history of safe use.

"Our customers with facilities that normally see thousands of people a day in high-touch environments trust AEGIS and its heritage of reliability, as well as its recognition by global regulatory authorities," said Colin Dickey, president of Protect Technologies, the exclusive distributor of AEGIS Microbe Shield® in North America. "It has been an honor working with our partners as one part of the strategy to creating cleaner environments and protecting surfaces where we live, work and play."
