New Line of Cleaning and Disinfecting Products

The Garland Company, Inc. launches its innovative Defense Force line of high-performance products designed to either clean, disinfect and/or protect commercial facilities. The flagship Defense Force product is D7, a safe and effective EPA-registered antimicrobial disinfectant that kills bacteria, fungi, germs and viruses in minutes and has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to the coronavirus/COVID-19. It can be applied to hard, non-porous interior and exterior surfaces, providing the assurance of clean and safe facilities. D7 is easily mixed and applied with standard sprayers. There is no specialized training required for the application of D7, so disinfection can take place almost immediately.

The Defense Force product line also includes Clear-Shield, a patented, clear acrylic water-based solution designed to protect a roof’s existing surface. The nontoxic solution includes antimicrobial products that, in turn, protect the coating itself. Clear-Shield can be sprayed or roller applied to gravel and mineral-surfaced modified bitumen and single-ply roofs. Clean-Shieldrounds out the line and is a biodegradable, nontoxic cleaning solution formulated to safely and effectively clean, brighten and restore a variety of masonry substrates. Clean-Shield penetrates the surface and chemically reacts to remove contaminants and deposits like hard water stains, efflorescence, dirt, algae, mold, mildew, rust and other hard to remove contaminants.

Shielding Lotion Protects the Hands of Construction Workers

Gloves In A Bottle is a shielding lotion that bonds with the skin to form a protective layer that lasts through four hours of washing and sanitizing until it needs to be reapplied.

Gloves In A Bottle is designed to bond with the outermost layer of skin cells, enhancing the skin’s ability to retain natural oils and moisture and assisting in the skin’s ability to protect against hand sanitizers, alcohol and other irritants, harsh soaps, common household and workplace products and even the cosmetics that strip moisture out of the skin.

According to the company, it does not wash off like other lotions, but comes off naturally as your skin exfoliates. For continued protection, simply reapply within 4 to 12 hours, depending on the frequency of your hand washing and amount of exposure. 

According to the manufacturer, Gloves In A Bottle is free of all parabens, phthalates, triclosan, sodium laurel sulfate (SLS), sodium laureth sulfates (SLES), formaldehyde, toluene, propylene glycol, salicylates, gluten, latex, dairy, wheat, soy, peas, corn, animal products, animal testing, added fragrance, colorants, peanuts and all other nuts.

Through a series of clinical studies conducted by independent labs and hospitals, it has been proven to be so safe it is approved for all staff use in hospitals, even in operating rooms.
