PVC-free product offers environmentally-friendly option
Leaderflush Shapland has expanded its Hygieniform range with the introduction of its PVC-free option, Hygieniform Eco.
Hygieniform is a high-impact chemical and bacterial resistant facing option that forms part of Leaderflush Shapland’s Plasform range. Due to manufacturing developments, Leaderflush Shapland is able to offer the same great benefits in a PVC free version – Hygieniform Eco, helping to make the range more environmentally-friendly in the long run due to its 100% recyclable nature. This point alone is incredibly important for specifiers who are increasingly looking for more environmentally-sound products.
Hygieniform Eco contains no harmful chemicals, such as PBT’s, halogens or monomers. What’s more, it incorporates an anti-microbial additive which kills harmful bacteria such as C.Difficile, E.Coli, MRSA, Listeria and Salmonella that may be present on the door. Even if the surface is scratched, it will still provide protection against such harmful bacteria, perfect for any healthcare environment.
Further development of the Hygieniform range has also led to the introduction of two new colours - Sea Green and Gust - allowing for greater flexibility when it comes to specification.
Stephen Hutsby, new product development manager from Leaderflush Shapland, said: “The Hygieniform Eco range is incredibly versatile and offers even greater choice for specifiers. The innovation behind the range is second to none and ensures that those looking for a more eco-friendly doorset solution are given more options. Eliminating the use of PVC is not of detriment to the products in the range and they are still able to offer the outstanding levels of performance expected from our wide and varied product offer.”
