About Antimicrobial Products

Date: 28-10-2020

Good and bad bacteria are everywhere and Healthcare Associations across the globe are introducing antimicrobial ranges to help reduce the risk of infectious diseases and create safer healthcare environments. As part of our ongoing commitment to developing innovative healthcare solutions, Con-Serv has introduced a range of Antimicrobial products to support this growing need.

What does Antimicrobial mean?

Antimicrobial literally means “active against microbes” and can be defined as something that can resist, inhibit and prevent the growth of microbes including bacteria and mould.

In developing our Antimicrobial healthcare range, antimicrobial additives have been infused into the product material during the manufacturing process. These additives work to attack the bacteria cell wall, interrupt cell metabolism, and prevent bacteria reproduction extending the product's hygienic properties and minimising the potential of cross-contamination.

Con-Serv have long been leaders in the healthcare industry with our Hygienic Seal® grab rails and Hosfab® shower systems. With health and hygiene our priority, we have introduced an Antimicrobial Shower Handpiece, Shower Hose, Rail Slider, and Laminar into our healthcare range.

In addition to this, we have also introduced a Colour Coded Identification System to help healthcare professionals track the replacement of fixtures and fittings in high-risk areas.
