Harlequin Floors Announces a New Improved Harlequin Cascade, now with BioCote® Antimicrobial Protection

The correct dance floor makes an important contribution to the safe performance of dancers without the risk of slips and falls or longer-term stress injuries. Harlequin Floors have developed floors specifically for dance, offering the exact requirements needed for varying genres of dance, which commercial grade, industrial and sports floors cannot.

Harlequin have partnered with BioCote®, market leaders in antimicrobial technology, to create a new, improved Cascade with BioCote® antimicrobial protection.

BioCote® antimicrobial technology is manufactured into the new Harlequin Cascade, creating a dance surface upon which microbes, such as bacteria and viruses, cannot survive.

Steve Green, Harlequin Group Marketing Director, said:

“Harlequin Cascade has been the choice of the world’s most prestigious dance and performing arts companies for many years because dancers know and trust the floor.”

“But in these difficult times, it is more important than ever to focus on improving hygiene in the dance studio, so we are launching our new Harlequin Cascade with built-in antibacterial protection.

“The BioCote® antimicrobial technology works constantly to reduce the presence of microbes on the surface of the floor. The result is a floor which is easier to keep hygienically clean, so reducing the risk of cross contamination.”

BioCote® antimicrobial protection uses silver ion technology, which is manufactured into new Harlequin Cascade and is proven to offer protection for the expected lifetime of the product. Unlike some antibacterial protection, it will not wear out or wash off.

This technology reduces microbes on the floor by up to 86% in 15 minutes and up to 99.99% in 24 hours. It works continuously and has been proven effective against a wide range of microbes including influenza A virus (H1N1) and feline coronavirus (strain Munich).

The BioCote® silver ion additive is inert and has no effect on the appearance or performance characteristics of the Harlequin Cascade.
