Health & Safety

Meditelle's anti-microbial and hydrophobic vinyl coverings incorporate an infection proof additive which is effective at reducing the spread of bacteria such as E coli and MRSA.


All Meditelle vinyl is suitable for use in high risk Infection Control areas. It contains an antimicrobial additive to provide long-lasting effectiveness even after regular cleaning. Independent laboratory tests show that it is effective against the spread of MRSA, E coli and other bacteria on its surface. Clostridium Difficile can not multiply on the vinyl surface under normal aerobic conditions.
