A selection of revolutionary antimicrobial copper hospital tap range will be displayed by Pegler Yorkshire on stand C16 at this year’s Healthcare Estates exhibition, in Manchester. The company which has worked closely with the healthcare sector for more than 80 years has developed solutions to address anti-bacterial protection and help to prevent scalding and cross-contamination.
The inherent and continuous ability of copper to kill bacteria is the driving force behind the development of the antimicrobial copper taps by Pegler Yorkshire. The first in the UK to launch a product of this type, Pegler Yorkshire’s tap product market manager, Mike Dickinson explained: “As the healthcare industry strives to prevent the transfer of infectious bacteria, and with taps being one area of a hospital that is continuously used, it is imperative that manufacturers develop new products to help combat the issues facing the industry. The results of research conducted by specialists across the world has shown that the antimicrobial benefits of copper far outweigh any other product on the market.”
Pegler Yorkshire’s renowned Performa range of healthcare taps, mixers, showers, thermostatic mixing valves and associated products will also be on display at the exhibition.
Mike continued: “Healthcare Estates is the ideal place for Pegler Yorkshire to display its comprehensive range of products specifically designed for the healthcare market. We are continually developing products to address the key issues found by healthcare professionals. I would certainly urge anyone wanting to find out about the latest products to visit us on stand C16.”
The benefits found from products within the Performa range include; Bacterial infection protection: specialist anti-bacterial products and non-touch taps to help prevent hospital acquired infections; Anti-scalding: TMV3-approved thermostatic mixing valves are proven to offer increased protection against any sudden sharp increase in hot water temperature; Conserving water: self-closing flow controls are an increasingly important requirement in the healthcare sector and easy operation: innovations such as electronic and knee or elbow-operated lever flow controls and lever-action basin taps are essential for people with restricted hand movement.
