SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 18, 2021--Code Corporation, a global leader in barcode scanning and data capture technologies, today announced it has been awarded the prestigious Best of State award in the category of Production & Manufacturing for Rubber/Plastic Products. Best of State is Utah’s gold standard of awards that recognizes outstanding individuals and businesses who achieve excellence in their field. Code received this award for its disinfectant-ready CodeShield® Plastic.
Code developed CodeShield to serve as molecularly dense and extremely durable plastic housing for its barcode scanners. CodeShield is designed to easily withstand the harsh chemicals and multiple cleaning and disinfecting sessions required in a healthcare environment. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Code also released a version that can be used in manufacturing and retail environments.
“Quality products begin with quality materials. And CodeShield sets a new standard in infectious disease control for barcode scanners,” said Kent Hansen, CEO of Code Corporation. “CodeShield products are certified by an independent lab, which has confirmed best-in-class performance and longevity—and now we are honored to have our dedication to excellence be validated through this Best of State award.”
CodeShield Plastics offer superior protection against harsh chemicals at three distinct levels, allowing users to select the Code barcode reader that suits their needs and desired level of infectious disease control. Ranging from three disinfectants to 20, each level stands up to the broadest range of approved chemicals in the barcode scanning industry. Suitable for anything from healthcare to retail, CodeShield Plastics withstand routine disinfection—without degrading. Patients, staff, customers and employees can be shielded from viruses and infectious diseases such as COVID-19, C. diff (Clostridioides difficile) and MRSA. CodeShield differs from anti-bacterial plastic that uses agents to inhibit bacterial growth but is not ruggedized. Continual cleansing degrades anti-bacterial plastic, shortening a device’s service life.
The Best of State Awards were created in 2003 to recognize exceptional individuals, organizations and businesses in Utah. Best of State candidates are evaluated by a panel of 100 judges based on three criteria: achievement in the field of endeavor; innovation or creativity in approaches, techniques, methods or processes; and contribution to improving the quality of life in Utah.
