Frequently asked questions
What is SteriStik?
SteriStik covers are cost-effective, flexible, self-adhesive covers which have antiviral and/or antimicrobial properties that proactively kill viruses and/or bacteria throughout the day, depending on which product is purchased. They are applied to any surface within any workplace or leisure environment to protect customers, visitors and staff.
What colour is the SteriStik cover?
The covers’ standard colours are clear or white material with the SteriStik logo either in green (Antivirus) or blue (Antimicrobial). The covers are discreet and do not to interfere with the look of your business but are visible enough for people to see there are protective covers in place.
Do you need to clean the SteriStik cover?
Yes. Although SteriStik’s compound stops bacteria being able to survive on the surface, this does not stop the need for regularly cleaning surfaces. Adding that extra layer of protection to your products acts as a complementary measure to routine cleaning.
Can I install the SteriStik covers myself?
Yes! Customers can easily install our covers and door pushes themselves; our website contains both installation instructions and installation videos.

Yes, our product is 100% safe. SteriStick products have been tested by leading experts to ensure antimicrobial properties are 100% effective on our film covers. All active components used are FDA and EPA approved with no harmful additives, ensuring safety for the environment and personal health.

How does it work?
What is the purpose of making a surface antiviral?
Does SteriStik Antivirus kill Coronavirus?
Coronavirus is an enveloped virus, so called because of its fatty outer membrane or ‘envelope’ and SteriStik Antivirus is proven to kill Human Coronavirus NL63. Several of the active substances that SteriTouch use have been successfully tested against other enveloped viruses, such as Influenza, Avian flu and SARS. It would be reasonable to imply that those same active substances would be effective against COVID-19, but at this stage testing against COVID-19 is not available.
What is the difference between SteriStik Antimicrobial and Antivirus covers?
SteriStik Antimicrobial is our original cover which has been developed to kill bacteria including Salmonella, MRSA and E-Coli.
