Stopping Bacteria Cross Contamination in HVAC Controls

Bacteria and other micro-organisms are a fact of life. They are everywhere, all around us, all the time. However hard we try, there’s no getting away from them. Some are good for us, others are neutral, but a few are dangerous. So it makes sense to do what we can to protect against their potentially harmful and undesirable effects.


Did you know!

That the Clarkson Controls – C² products membrane uses Autotex high quality textured polyester, which offers Microban® antimicrobial protection on the textured hard coated material surface?
Microban® antimicrobial technology is incorporated into the Autotex textured hard coat during the manufacturing process guaranteeing surface protection throughout the lifetime of the product to ensure that when bacteria comes into contact with the surface of the Microban® coated material the antimicrobial function disrupts the bacterial cell wall killing or inhibiting bacterial growth.

The result being that the surface of the Microban® coated material provides dependable and constant protection against bacterial contamination, including:
