Sep 7, 2020
New Delhi:  The Covid-19 pandemic has triggered a wave of new hygienic product lines across segments, with the latest one being anti-microbial electrical switches.

Introducing the product line, smart home electrical manufacturer Panasonic Life Solutions India said: “Due to the pandemic, a lot of time is spent at home which has resulted in increased usage of electrical appliances or gadgets therefore switches, sockets and fan regulators have the highest touch rates in any environment say at home or hospitals”.

“This in turn increases the possibility of bacteria or viruses to hold a significant number of microbes on their surfaces.”

According to the statement, in public facilities, a lot of people are bound to come into contact with the switches which further increases the chances of bacteria or virus to spread by infecting a large number of people.

“The new range of antimicrobial wiring accessories is equipped with anti-bacterial or anti-fungal properties and promotes a healthy environment by facilitating up to 99 per cent reduction in bacterial development and prevents transmission,” the statement said.

“These series are excellently designed and are made from polycarbonate that contain silver ions. These ions act as robust support to kill the bacteria and stop their growth on the product surface. The silver ions antibacterial structure is immune to light and heat and this will further assist in fighting the germs for people’s safety.”IANS
