From Dust-Off®, New Electrostatic Wipes Trap Dirt, Allergens On Computer Monitors



Somerville, NJ (October 27, 2000) – To safely clean coated screens on computer monitors and televisions, Falcon Safety Products has introduced no-scratch electrostatic wipes that trap dust, dirt and other particles likely to harm delicate surfaces.

Commercial glass cleaners, particularly those containing ammonia, can damage expensive anti-glare coatings on computer monitors. Paper towels often contain tiny bits of wood pulp that may scratch glass surfaces.

In contrast, the soft StatiqueS™ cleaning cloths use an electrostatic charge to attract even dust mites for quick and easy disposal. Each measuring a generous 8-by-12 inches, StatiqueS™ are available in packs of 20 wipes at $5.99, the manufacturer’s suggested retail price, from computer stores and other specialty retailers.

Even the latest low-emission computer monitors are dust magnets, since video-display tubes generate a strong static charge that pulls dust from the air. When wiped across a monitor screen, StatiqueS™ create an opposing charge that captures deposits. Moreover, StatiqueS™ are safe to use on any electrical appliance, from computer monitors to television screens.

Falcon Safety Products is a diversified manufacturer specializing in computer accessories and cleaning products. The company developed the original compressed gas computer duster, Dust-Off®, in 1982 and remains the only supplier that manufactures its own product. Today the Dust-Off line includes anti-static sprays, cleaning kits, pre-moistened wipes and cleaning sheets for printers and fax machines.

Falcon also serves as the exclusive U.S. distributor for Exponent® workstation organization accessories, including a complete line of zip holders, disk organizers, monitor stands and printer paper organizers.
