Gainsborough Specialist Bathrooms (GSB) introduced BioCote antimicrobial protection into its popular Sentes reclining bath.
Part of the Gainsborough Healthcare Group, GSB provides a holistic programme of support through its G360 services which deliver complete accessible bathrooms and wet rooms for care environments.
The firm says infection control is a key element within project implementation, so vulnerable bathers and caregivers benefit from added protection against harmful superbugs.
Biocote antimicrobial protection consists of silver-ion technology which is integrated during the GRP manufacturing process therefore providing 99.9% 24/7 protection against an array of harmful microbes.
BioCote cannot be wiped or worn away and hence enhances hygiene management and reduces the possibility of cross infection.
Peter Eckhardt, Gainsborough Healthcare Group CEO, commented: “The introduction of BioCote Superbug-beating technology into our Sentes reclining bath once again reaffirms our position at the forefront of the care industry.
Adding: “As highly respected manufacturers we have a duty of care to vulnerable bathers to protect them from harmful microbes and the risk of infection.
“The Sentes is a popular choice in the acute sector through its intuitive and ergonomic design – with the addition of BioCote I’m sure this demand will grow. Gainsborough solutions continue to be the considered choice for CQC excellence, outstanding care and safer moving and handling.”
