Scolmore has released an updated version of its Medical Solutions brochure, which incorporates the very latest additions to its growing range of products dedicated to healthcare settings.
The specialist products that make up the Scolmore Medical Solutions range are from the Mode wiring accessories collection. All Mode products are manufactured using urea formaldehyde, which has similar inherent properties to antimicrobial additives that inhibit the growth of infectious diseases. All products independently tested achieved a 99.99% kill-off rate across all four types of strains of bacteria – MRSA, E-Coli, Salmonella, Klebsiella Pneumonia and enveloped viruses.
Mode plates have also been independently tested and have shown to have anti-viral properties against enveloped and non-enveloped viruses. After a contact period of four hours, Mode was shown to have a 99.99% kill-off rate against enveloped viruses and a 92% kill-off rate against non-enveloped viruses. It has also achieved 99.98% kill-off rate against influenza A(H1N1) after a 24-hour period.
The full Mode antimicrobial and antiviral Medical Solutions range currently comprises switches and sockets; blue ‘Medical Equipment Only’ sockets, red and green outboard rocker switched socket outlets, key lockable switches and sockets, locating sockets, wide rocker switches, and the Part M range of visually contrasting wiring accessories.
Scolmore recently added EBBs (Equipotential Bonding Busbars) to its Click wiring accessories range. EBBs play a major role in ensuring patient and clinician safety. In accordance with the Requirements for Electrical Installations BS 7671:2018 AMD2 Section 710 (Medical Locations) and the Health Technical Memorandum HTM06 01:2017, all Group 1 and 2 Medical Locations are to have an Equipotential Bonding Busbar (EBB) and associated supplementary protective equipotential bonding installed.
Scolmore’s 20-page Medical Solutions brochure brings together this growing range of specialist products. It provides a comprehensive guide for those contractors, specifiers and designers working on a range of healthcare related projects, including NHS hospitals, health centres, care homes and GP practices.
