Antimicrobial data trunking has been designed specifically to help reduce micro organisms which may cause harmful infections and diseases in environments such as hospitals and schools. Our cable trunking incorporates BioCote’s silver ion antimicrobial technology which inhibits the growth of bacteria and mould. Tests have shown that products incorporating this technology at the time of manufacturing help reduce levels of bacteria including MRSA, E-Coli, Salmonella and Listeria on surfaces by up to 99%.
A pilot study carried out by BioCote and the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust compared bacterial counts in two outpatient departments. One of the departments was furnished with products incorporating the BioCote silver ion technology. The other contained standard, untreated items. The results of the 18 month study, which was published in the Journal of Infection Prevention, showed that bacteria counts in the BioCote treated environment were 95.8% lower than those in the untreated department. REHAU by Trench antimicrobial trunking provides an additional level of protection against microbial organisms which can also cause product deterioration, discolouration and bad odours.
