The Transguard Group has been successfully using natural UltraShield Bio-Active detergents in all its staff accommodation facilities since September 2010, maintaining high standards of hygiene for its 10,000 plus staff members in some ten facilities across Dubai. 

UltraShield products are based on natural biological processes and are the next level of biodegradable. Because UltraShield degrades the dirt on the spot, the waste water will also be precleaned when rinsed into the sewage. The products, are fully food graded, safe to use and gentle on the environment are extremely powerful and pose significant ‘work capacity’ in comparison with conventional petrochemical cleaners. These products do not require hot water to work (saving cost and energy) but performs best with lukewarm water at 20ºc to 50ºc. Enzymatic cleaners remove dirt by breaking down the molecular structure of the soil which binds dirt to its supporting surface. It is not a solvent or bleach and is strong enough to replace the acids, caustics and strong alkalis present in traditional cleaners. 

Mr. Adrian R.G. Bowser, Head of Property & Logistics said: “We have been very happy with the results of using UltraShield’s environmental products which are also a good fit with our Group-wide environmental initiatives.” 

The UltraShield cleaning mixture is also biodegradable itself. As a result overall pollution and disposal costs are significantly reduced, but applying UltraShield also prevents smells and rodent insects emerging from the drains and waste water system. UltraShield Bio-Active cleaners can combine unique cleaning power with greater operator safety, lower disposal costs and less damage to the environment. In other words, these products are cheaper, better and greener. 

Mr. Jan Willem Van Es, Managing Director of Saham Star General Trading LLC (Distributor of UltraShield Bio-Active products in GCC) stated: “We seek to deliver products which combine cost saving benefits, superior performance and a more positive environment impact. All our products and services are always in support with implementing Green Standards and improving the quality of life in Dubai and the other regions where we supply UltraShield.” 

He continues: “Our calculations, based on the feedback of this and other clients, show that the financial impact of potential water saving when Bio-Active detergents are being applied as per the manufacturer’s  instructions, is outperforming the costs of the detergents itself. In other words: UltraShield Bio-Active is their natural partner for better & cheaper cleaning, even creating its own budget for further hardware improvements of the facilities.”
