Level Up Your Protection

Last year brought unprecedented changes to the workplace. Whether we’re working remotely, fostering a blended work environment, or returning to the office, we are facing new hurdles like never before. Terms like clean-desking have been invented to replace hot desking and hoteling to address this next normal.

With this shift in how we work, Targus has identified a need for clean-desking solutions to reduce the risk of exposure to harmful microorganisms — like allergens, viruses, bacteria, and mold — commonly found on high-touch surfaces like the tech accessories we use daily.

Clean-Desking features workspaces equipped with hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes and antimicrobial products focused to help keep surfaces free of microbes, and accessories like an antimicrobial mouse and keyboard.


Why Targus?


Protection is at the heart of what we do at Targus. We want to protect your tech, our planet, and your wellbeing too. As the pandemic eases and people start returning to the wider world, Targus is introducing multiple levels of antimicrobial protection into our products.

We categorize our clean-desking products into levels of protection.

INTEGRATED PROTECTION: UNDER THE MICROSCOPE

WHAT IS DEFENSEGUARD™?


Active Protection uses a proactive approach in destroying harmful microorganisms with the Targus UV-C LED Disinfection Light.

Long proven as a disinfection method in places like hospitals and airports (when used as directed), UV-C breaks down the DNA of microorganisms, effectively killing or deactivating them.

Incorporating state-of-the-art UV-C LED, automation, and motion-sensing technologies, the UV-C LED Disinfection Light turns on for 5 minutes, every hour, eliminating up to 99% of tested pathogens on your workspace surface inside the active disinfection area.

HOW DO DEFENSEGUARD™ PRODUCTS WORK AND HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?


DefenseGuard products were developed by incorporating antimicrobial ingredients that work to neutralize bacteria and viruses, or prevent the growth of such microorganisms, to the products themselves.

EPA- and BPR-compliant, Targus uses active ingredients silver nitrate, silver ion (nano-), silver phosphate glass, and zinc oxide, all widely recognized to have antimicrobial properties.

DefenseGuard products work continuously for the life of the product to help prevent the growth of harmful microbes, from beginning to end.

HOW IS ACTIVE PROTECTION DIFFERENT THAN DEFENSEGUARD™?


Yes!

Testing of Targus antimicrobial materials,
including the JIS Z 2801 and ISO 22196:2011 standards at independent laboratories, has demonstrated 99.9% reduction of Staphylococcus aureus (Staph Infection) and Escherichia coli (E. coli).
