Concern regarding cleanliness within healthcare establishments continues to get headlines in the media, with the result that in recent years, contractors operating within the sector are under increasing pressure to work with electrical products that meet the demands for hygiene and safety.
The Scolmore Group has been supplying electrical accessories to the healthcare sector for many years. Its white moulded ranges and Part M wiring accessories ranges - developed to comply with the Part M Building Regulations governing products for disabled access - have been independently tested for their anti-microbial properties.
The results from the laboratory showed that the products tested achieved a bacterium kill rate of 99.99% when tested 24 hours after they had been exposed to MRSA, E-Coli, Salmonella and Klebsiella Pneumoniae. These independent tests show that Scolmore’s products achieved a 99.99% kill off rate across all four types of the strains of bacteria causing concern in health environments.
All white moulded and Mode part M wiring accessories are manufactured using Urea Formaldehyde, which has similar inherent properties to antimicrobial additives that inhibit the growth of infectious diseases.
