We realize most departments have established SOP’s for cleaning and decontamination of equipment. We still wish to share our strongly suggested guidelines, but also with a much more important message.
These are extraordinary times and most acceptable cleaning agents may not be readily available, and typical practices are just not possible.
We’ve fielded numerous calls and emails about usage of ‘this or that’ voiding our warranty. Our warranty will not be voided under any circumstances.
If a chemical or practice outside our guidelines renders a pack unusable, takes the color away, flakes the coating, etc., we will work with you to find an acceptable way to remedy each and every issue.
That said, we’re confident there aren’t many disinfecting chemicals or practices that will destroy the integrity of our gear. Even if the exterior of your gear is compromised, extra protection on the inner side remains intact.
STATPACKS has your back, more now than ever. Please be safe.
