Antimicrobial to make playgrounds safer

Local News

The world’s largest commercial playground equipment manufacturer is creating a safer environment for kids to play during the pandemic.

PlayPower, which has a manufacturing facility in Monett, is unveiling “PlayArmor,” which is the first antimicrobial protective coating for high-touch surfaces.

Instead of normal disinfectants, which need to be used after each person touches a surface, PlayArmor works by killing germs on-contact.

The coating will protect against germs for up to 90 days.

PlayPower will start adding the antimicrobial finish to new and existing playground equipment installed at schools, parks and indoor play spaces in a few weeks.
