Bio Trunking clocks up contract wins for Marshall-Tufflex

23 June 2010

Marshall-Tufflex’s award-winning antimicrobial cable management system is continuing to impress health trusts and hospital infection control managers around the country, with more and more healthcare facilities investing in its bug-busting qualities.

Bio Trunking Solutions pack an impressive punch, being 99.9% effective against MRSA, Klebsiella Pneumonia, E-Coli and Salmonella and a host of other hospital nasties that can prove fatal, particularly to elderly patients and those with weakened immune systems. Its success lies in the silver ion technology integrated into the cable management system during manufacture. The active antimicrobial agent is mixed throughout the PVC-U before the trunking profile is extruded, giving an even and thorough distribution of the agent throughout the product. Because the antimicrobial is integral to the PVC-U it will not rub off. The system continues to work if the trunking is scratched or knocked, delivering 24-hour protection for the lifetime of the cable management installation. Bio Trunking Solutions have already been installed in hospital wards and ancillary facilities from Devon in the south west of England, to Aberdeen in Scotland. Most recently Bio was installed at The University Hospital of North Tees, in Stockton which, in regard to infection control, is at the centre of the best performing NHS Trust in the country, according to current Department of Health figures. Its estates department, as with most Bio installations, opted for the Marshall-Tufflex’s Odyssey profile, the only all-curved trunking on the market. Its curves help repel dirt and aid cleaning. “Flat surfaces gather dust and dust gathers bugs,” said hospital estates engineer Richard Speight. “The curving profile was a big bonus.”
