Now more than ever, keeping vehicles germ-free is a top priority in the transportation industry. Between regular cleaning, proper disinfectants, masks, and shields, transportation providers are taking extra steps to prevent the spread of illness.

What if there was a step that not only prevented bacteria from growing on your seats, but also killed 99.9% of germs? Thanks to our friends at Freedman Seating and CMI Enterprises, that step is completely obtainable for your bus. The solution, Nanocide fabric, or NPF seats.

Nanocide is an anti-microbial agent that suppresses the growth of algae, mold, mildew, fungi, bacteria growth and proliferation, which cause unpleasant odors, discoloration, staining, and deterioration of bus seats.

While there are many options for anti-microbial and anti-bacterial (meaning a germ will not grow in that in environment) seat materials, NPF seats contain silver flakes that have been proven in testing to kill 99.9% of germs.

CMI has NOT specifically tested NPF seating against COVID-19

NPF is a high performance fabric that comes in a variety of styles for every type of bus. Freedman Seating, America’s largest supplier of transportation seating, describes NPF as “soft to the touch, but engineered to be strong.” It is anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, water repellent, aesthetically pleasing, and the most technologically advanced transportation seating fabric on the market.

For transportation providers that want to stop bacteria in its tracks, NPF seats are for you! If you are interested in a vehicle with NPF seating, call TESCO at 800.227.3572 or email
