Leading manufacturer of cable management products HellermannTyton has enhanced its range with the addition of products that have anti-bacterial properties.
The range of protection products that include Spiral Binding, Helawrap, Flexible Convoluted Tubing and Grommet Strip can be manufactured from material that contains an anti-bacterial additive, meaning bacteria will not survive on the products’ surfaces. This is particularly beneficial for hard to reach places in environments such as factories, offices, schools and hospitals where cleanliness and the prevention of contamination is crucial.
Lab tests have demonstrated that these products are 99.9% more likely to prevent the growth of bacteria, such as MRSA and E.Coli. MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) refers to a group of bacteria that are resistant to some antibiotics and can cause skin infections, and in some cases pneumonia. E.Coli (Escherichia Coli) can cause infection if ingested even in small amounts and can be transmitted through contaminated food or water, and person-to-person contact.
Barry Phelps, Commercial Sales Manager at HellermannTyton Plymouth, comments: “At HellermannTyton we pride ourselves in providing solutions to meet our customers’ needs, all while improving efficiency and safety. At the start of the pandemic, we worked with our key suppliers to provide material ranges that are resistant to bacterial growth. We’re thrilled to now be able to bring these materials to our existing ranges and further help our customers meet their safety needs.”
The anti-bacterial products available are:
Helawrap – designed to protect cables routed through areas where movement and vibration is experienced. It allows a high degree of flexibility whilst protecting against the risk of crushing, creasing or splitting.
Spiral Binding – a versatile way of protecting and tidying wires, cables and tubes, with wires able to branch out of the cable at any point. Because of its design, one size can cover a large range of loom sizes.
Convoluted tubing – will provide strength and flexibility to protect cables when routed through areas prone to vibration.
Grommet Strip – designed to prevent chafing of cables and pipes passing through panels or bulkheads.
