Anti-microbial trunking helps prevent the spread of infection in hospital

The University Hospital of North Tees, in Stockton, opted for Marshall-Tufflex’s anti-microbial, fully curved trunking system for an electrical upgrade to a stroke ward in order to help prevent the spread of infection.

Richard Speight, estates engineer for the University Hospital of North Tees, was attracted to the curvature of the Odyssey Bio CAT 6 compliant, anti-microbial containment system, which repels dust and dirt and aids cleaning regimes. He said: "Flat surfaces gather dust and dust gathers bugs so the curving profile was a big bonus."

Odyssey Bio is particularly suited to healthcare environments because its profile aids cleaning regimes and repels clutter. The anti-microbial agent is mixed into the PVC-U during manufacture and is 99.9% effective against MRSA, Klebsiella Pneumonia, E-coli and Salmonella. Because the anti-microbial is integral to the trunking, it will not rub or wear off and if scratched continues to work unhindered.

Odyssey Bio was installed in a 20 bed ward at University Hospital North Tees by DH Potters (Electrical). The system was supplied by Edmundson Electrical, Stockton.

Marshal-Tufflex’s Odyssey Bio is tested to quantitative standard ISO 22196:2007, which shows the survival rate of tested bacteria to be less than 0.1%. It will therefore help to counteract harmful bugs, such as MRSA, Klebsiella Pneumonia, E-coli and Salmonella, and help to avoid cross contamination in medical and other high-risk applications when combined with stringent hygiene routines.
Also registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and compliant with the European Biocidal Products Directive (BPD), Odyssey Bio is one of a comprehensive range of solution-driven products by cable management specialist, Marshall-Tufflex.
