Antimicrobial cable management system

A unique antimicrobial cable management system from Marshall-Tufflex is effective against dangerous bacteria found in hospitals.

The PVC-U cable management system is impregnated with a silver-based antimicrobial agent that is proven to be 99.9% effective against many dangerous bacteria, including MRSA, E-Coli, Salmonella and Klebsiella pneumoniae. If someone carrying one of these bugs touches the treated PVC-U, bacteria transferred to the trunking begins to die, minimising the risk of cross-contamination and patients contracting healthcare associated infections (HCAIs). On untreated products, the harmful bacteria will grow.

Because the antimicrobial ingredient is mixed into the PVC-U rather than applied as a surface coating, it continues to work if the plastic is scratched or damaged, and will remain 100% effective throughout the life of the trunking as it does not leach out or suffer reduction in performance over time.

Bio Trunking Solutions have been tested to the quantitative standard ISO 22196:2007. Results show the survival rate of tested bacteria to be less than 0.1%. It is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and compliant with the European Biocidal Products Directive (BPD).
