Liverpool Theatre Installs Antimicrobial Door Wraps

Liverpool Theatre Installs Antimicrobial Door Wraps
11 December 2020

Liverpool’s Royal Court Theatre is the latest venue to install additional safety measures for its returning visitors.

The venue will welcome back its first visitors since March with the application of continuous cleaning touchpoints throughout the building.

Along with socially-distanced seats and cast, the theatre is reopening with its Christmas show, The Royal Court Selection Box.

SDA Cleanzone’s peel and stick wraps contain silver-ion antimicrobial technology that removes common bacteria, viruses and other contaminants within minutes of contact. The surfaces continuously clean 24/7 for up to 180 days.

“We are pleased to help such a world-renowned venue with our continuous cleaning products and antimicrobial door wraps.” stated Adam Beaumont from SDA Cleanzone.

“Whilst we have sold our products to large clients in the UK including Amazon, Twillio and even local councils, we are extremely proud to supply to such an iconic venue close to us.”

We envisage all shared touch points in the future to contain continuous cleaning technology, this will be part of the new normal. The idea is that using our surfaces alongside a regular cleaning protocol will create a safer environment for everyone including staff and theatregoers. We believe the virus is not going away anytime soon so we need to interrupt transmission as much as possible.”


Theatre Revenues Down by 19 Per Cent


According to Statista, ticket sales at UK theatres fell by 93 per cent due to the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.  During the period from February 1 to March 16, 2020, as the virus began to spread throughout Europe, ticket sales decreased by 14 per cent year-on-year, resulting in a drop in revenue of 19 per cent. 

Theatres across the UK closed from March 16, 2020, following the government's advice for people to avoid gathering in public buildings. Theatres within Tier 1 and Tier 2 areas can reopen with social distancing and limited audiences, while those within Tier 3 will remain closed until further notice.
