In addition to the initiatives mentioned below, several of Direct Eight’s precautionary measures to further ensure a cleaner environment include:
- Introduction of ZOONO as a TGA approved Disinfectant to fight against COVID19.
- Education of our employees on correct methods and procedures.
- PPE worn at all times.
- ZOONO applied on all of our equipment after each shift.
Antimicrobial resistance is a global problem that makes no distinction between “first world” and developing countries. Driven by the overuse and misuse of antibiotics, antimicrobial-resistant bacteria and viruses loom as an international public health disaster.
They are the cause of disease in hospitals, nursing homes and the wider community as sources of “super bugs” proliferate. Drug-resistant microbes can be found in contaminated surfaces, water, and food – even in seagulls.
Surfaces are a significant source of microbiological contamination, according to Hyslop, and are a major vehicle for harmful microorganisms. Bacteria, viruses, fungi, and yeasts contaminate surfaces and can form biofilms that are extremely resilient to hygiene processes.
With the coronavirus crisis being at the front of mind for many, we understand if you have decided to step up your cleaning regime to sanitise surfaces – and, of course, have been washing your hands regularly too.

COVID-19 spreads through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. A person can acquire the virus by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes.
A keyway you can protect workers and others from the risk of exposure to COVID-19 is by implementing appropriate cleaning and disinfecting measures for your workplace. A combination of cleaning and disinfection will be most effective in removing the COVID-19 virus.
Workplaces must be cleaned at least daily. Cleaning with detergent and water is sufficient.
Once clean, surfaces can be disinfected. When and how often your workplace should be disinfected will depend on the likelihood of contaminated material being present.
Alternatively, you may be able to do a 2-in-1 clean and disinfection by using a combined detergent and disinfectant.
Long-lasting, providing the absolute best protection against germs.
ZOONO products use purified, deionized water & an antimicrobial compound. We use a Quaternary Ammonium Compound – these are commonly used antibacterial and antiviral agents found in products such as toothpaste, contact lens products, cosmetics, soaps.
While our quaternary ammonium compound originates from natural sand the process is synthetic. Our trade secret lies in the technology behind the quaternary ammonium compound which enables ZOONO to stay active and continue killing pathogens for long periods of time.
How does it work?
Our water-based sanitisers add a long-lasting antibacterial and antiviral protective layer to hands and surfaces. Once dry, ZOONO resembles a layer of microscopic pins that attract, pierce, and kill pathogens – the same principle as a pin popping a balloon. The organism is then killed, and the process continues.
ZOONO significantly reduces the spread of harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, mould and yeast. Lasting up to 30 days
Where to use ZOONO
Any environments where germs are present and likely to pose a threat. Currently, ZOONO is successfully used in buildings, vehicles, aircrafts, homes, and hospitals where there is a risk of infection.
Routine liquid disinfectants only work when the surface is wet. Once the disinfectant is wiped off or dried, it is no longer capable of killing any further potentially harmful microorganisms that re-contaminate the surface.
In fact, the surface becomes contaminated to the same extent as before disinfection within 1 – 2 hours. This is the reason why the ZOONO technology is the next generation biocide because it is also water-based and has a low toxicity level. In turn, it does not require any special precautionary considerations such as the more toxic and corrosive biocides, which is why it can also be used in the home.
ZOONO is low in toxicity, water based, food safe, child friendly and contains no harsh chemicals or toxins, as a liquid it is less toxic than vitamin C or Coffee.
As opposed to other products that kill pathogens via poison and dehydration (ie. Alcohol), ZOONO physically kills bacteria and viruses using positively charged antimicrobial pins that attract the negatively charged molecular structure of microorganisms.
Traditional disinfectants kill when wet; ZOONO kills when dry, therefore providing residual protection.
Routine cleaning can continue and does not disrupt the ZOONO molecule or its antibacterial and antiviral activity.
Efficacy & Testing
Zoono conforms to regulations from around the world and has passed PAS 2424, EN13697, EN1276, EN1650 amongst many more antimicrobial efficacy tests. Registered by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (ARTG 224480) as an effective disinfectant for hard surfaces against COVID-19.
ZOONO technology sanitises and continues to work for extended periods with a broad protective shield, providing a Safe and Trusted Hygienic Environment.
