Cleaner Light Switches With Built-In Antibacterial Technology From Schneider Electric and Microban

Light switches are known to be one of the dirtiest objects we touch during the day. Considering how frequently we come into contact with them, it's not surprising that they can be a primary vector for cross contamination.

In addition to regular hand washing and more thorough cleaning routines, light switches can also benefit from built-in antimicrobial product protection.

The Problem

  • Our hands are one of the primary methods for spreading harmful and degrading bacteria from surface to surface.
  • Switches are often overlooked during routine cleans and can become a source of bacterial cross-contamination.
  • The proliferation of bacteria on switches can lead to unpleasant odors, irreversible stains, and premature product degradation, making them more difficult to clean or costly to replace
  • It is important to keep in mind that under adequate conditions, microorganisms can double in number on an untreated light switch every 20 minutes.

Flicking the Switch On Bacteria

Microban and Schneider Electric have come together to create the Decor Line of antibacterial electrical switches and controls. These innovative products combine beauty and durability with built-in Microban protection, helping to prevent the proliferation of bacteria on the surface of the switch.
