Summer time is the peak period for Legionella, the potentially lethal bacteria that thrive in the stagnant water which collects in domestic shower heads when they are unused for anything more than a few days.
In hotter weather, the bug thrives in stagnant water above 20ºC and below 45ºC.
Biomaster partner T-Safe has introduced the latest addition to their range with the launch of the new Hygiene Shower, a re-usable, fully maintainable, colour coded, antibacterial shower system.
The T-Safe® Hygiene Shower offers a maintenance-free alternative to traditional quarterly showerhead and hose cleaning and descaling, aiding infection prevention and control.
The system aims to improve user safety whilst enabling healthcare estates teams to deliver a complaint quarterly shower maintenance regime at reduced costs.
Designed for easy maintenance, the Hygiene Shower is constructed in just two parts and features a removable faceplate and smooth bore water way that enables quick and effective cleaning.
Interchangeable faceplates featuring Colour Coding provide visual confirmation of PPM completion, whilst laser engraved Data Matrix identification enables full electronic Asset Tracking and improved compliance management.
The showers and hoses contain Biomaster antibacterial technology which helps reduce microbiological growth on surfaces.
Biomaster is effective against common types of water-borne bacteria including Legionella. The product protection is effective for the lifetime of the shower unit. It is available in hand Showers, hoses and wall showers.
T-Safe also sponsored the recent IHEEM Water Technical Platform Seminar in London.
