Antibacterial access panel

Access panels are used in pretty much every building in the UK to access concealed plumbing, distribution boards, chimneys, service meters and many other applications that need to be concealed in a wall, floor or ceiling, but will require easy and regular access.

It is available on all our Metal Faced Access Panels and features an effective antibacterial agent which kills fungi and most species of bacteria including the deadly MRSA, Salmonella, E coli and C difficile.

Why use our Antibacterial Powder Coating?

The Antibacterial Powder Coating makes our panels a better choice for places with a higher risk of growing and spreading germs. These include places such as swimming pools, hospitals, laboratories, dental practices, restaurant kitchens, agricultural buildings, lavatories etc.,

Intense cleaning is not enough to prevent the existence and growth of bacteria. Also heat treatments are not effective enough as certain strains of bacteria are not at all or not sufficiently affected by heat. Therefore we need to think of different and additional solutions.

MRSA, for example, is very hard to prevent and also to treat once infection has taken place. Infection often results in very severe illness or even death. It affects especially people with a weakened immune system, with open wounds or invasive devices such as catheters. MRSA is no longer only prevalent in hospitals but also in for example prisons and nursing homes.

Our antibacterial powder coating kills existing fungi and bacteria such as MRSA and prevents new bacteria from getting a foothold and growing.

So without having to invest large sums and without having to spend a lot of time and effort, we can help you make your place cleaner and safer.

Call us now to find out what we can do for you.
