Filta Group Holdings PLC (LON:FLTA) said FiltaShield, a division of the group providing sanitation, protection and monitoring services for coronavirus in public places, has worked with celebrity beauty therapist Tracie Giles to sanitise the premises of her permanent makeup and aesthetics clinic.

The company said FiltaShield’s services have been developed to support the re-opening of public spaces by providing an increased level of protection and the ability to monitor the infection.

The group said FiltaShield has used its antibacterial technology to treat surfaces, applied in a process called ‘fogging’, as well as having its technicians train Giles how to use the fogging device to carry out ongoing sanitation of the clinic using the company’s system.

A trained technician has also educated the clinic’s cleaners on how to keep the environment sanitised so that cleaners can maintain their own hygiene measures with an “antiviral maintenance pack” of Filta’s all-purpose sanitiser.

The company also said it offers the services of a retained environmental health expert, who can advise business operators on the best strategies for maintaining a consistent and effective level of hygiene to keep their premises safe while coronavirus infection remains a threat.

“Over the last few months we have been working extremely hard to get our clinic, and the wider beauty industry, ready to reopen in a COVID-secure way. Alongside ICU medical-grade PPE and strict social distancing measures, we have worked with FitaShield to introduce the latest ‘fogging’ technology and sanitisation processes to ensure our clinic is the safest and most hygienic environment possible, protecting the health and wellbeing of both our staff and our clients”, Giles said.

“It’s great to work with Tracie, and help her to get her business back up and running. Tracie has been an important voice on behalf of the beauty industry to support businesses across the UK in continuing their vital contributions to the economy, without sacrificing the safety of staff or clients”, added Filta Group’s commercial director Edward Palin.

Shares in Filta were steady at 111p in late-afternoon trading on Wednesday.
