CabinetBed adds antimicrobial coating to entire casegoods line
ABBOTSFORD, British Columbia – Specialty case goods producer CabinetBed recently announced its has added a new enhanced antimicrobial coating to the wood frame of every one of its unique Murphy beds.
In a statement, Mark Carruthers, the company’s director of international sales and marketing, said as part of an effort to offer both retailers and consumers to safest coatings available, the company is now using KCI-AMA, an antimicrobial coating made by Katilac Coatings, a Woodbridge, Ontario based firm that specialises in making coatings for a variety of applications.
Katilac noted KCI-AMA offers long-term protection against a wide range of pathogens including disease-causing germs – both bacteria and viruses – as well as mould and fungus. It is non-leaching, non-toxic and certified for use in both Canada and the United States.
‘We normally launch new products at a market, but with the borders still closed we decided to introduce two new models – the Barn and the Rustic,” Carruthers said. “With the rising costs of freight from overseas and supply chain issues, more and more retailers across North America are starting to see the value of buying Canadian-made products and not only because of the quality but because the price differences are not as great as they once were.”
