Germs will not pass security at Detroit Metro Airport, New North Terminal

Written by editor

DETROIT, MI – For germ-a-phobes there are few, more intimidating moments than an airport security check point.

DETROIT, MI – For germ-a-phobes there are few, more intimidating moments than an airport security check point. Today, passengers in Detroit Metro Airport’s new North Terminal can rest easier knowing that the Transportation Security Administration check points and federal inspection areas in the new terminal have been treated with a powerful, proven antimicrobial found in the TriBan Antimicrobial System that protects the surfaces you touch from harboring bacteria, fungi, mold or other microbes.

“We set out three years ago with a mission to use the best technologies available to make Detroit Metro Airport one of the newest, most operationally-capable and efficient airports in North America,” said Lester Robinson, Wayne County Airport Authority CEO. “Recognizing that many travelers have concerns about contacting germs as they go through security, we are pleased to offer customers an antimicrobial technology for these areas that would be powerful and yet durable enough to withstand airport traffic.”

“Traveling can be stressful enough, but with the protection of TriBan in place, passengers have a microscopic ally that allows them to worry more about getting to their plane on time and less about microbes when they fly through the new North Terminal at Detroit Metro Airport,” said Art McWood, president Triton Technology Group.

“The key to the TriBan System is the durable antimicrobial application,” McWood continued. “This EPA registered antimicrobial technology forms an extremely durable bond on a surface, and controls microorganisms without chemical poisons by essentially creating a molecular ‘bed of nails’ all over the treated area. It makes the surface physically inhospitable to current and future microbial growth. To the human eye and touch, the application is invisible, but for microbes, it is an end-game.”

Detroit Metro Airport treated all of the security check points and the federal inspection areas of the new North Terminal with the TriBan System.

Unlike most other antimicrobials that leach chemicals or heavy metals into the air and the surrounding environment, the unique technology powering TriBan controls microbial growth without leaching, making it an effective, “green” alternative for airports.

The TriBan Antimicrobial System is a comprehensive approach to microbial treatment and prevention. It begins with extensive testing of the facility, followed by a customized treatment plan and application of the continuously active antimicrobial. Finally, post-testing and a long-term service plan complete the process.
