Antimicrobial Appliance Switches
Bulgin is widely recognised as a leading manufacturer of environmentally sealed connectors and components. With over 95 years of experience in the industry, Bulgin continues to innovate and develop products and services to cater for its global customer base across a variety of markets. In 2016, Bulgin announced the strategic incorporation of sister company Arcolectric into its business offering. This brings together two complementary product portfolios to make Bulgin a more comprehensive and wider reaching provider of engineered solutions to meet the needs of the industry. In addition, the integration has expanded Bulgin’s expertise across a broader range of components, particularly electromechanical switches.
Bulgin has partnered with BioCote to deploy the use of their antimicrobial additives into a range of switches and indicators. Many of these switches are already sold into a wide variety of industries including healthcare, commercial appliances and food equipment, laboratory science, education, catering, leisure and other ‘high traffic’ public places.
Bulgin’s best-selling standard and miniature rocker switches, push-button switches, double pole splash resistant switches, corresponding indicators and splash/dust covers will be manufactured with BioCote’s silver ion technology during the moulding process to produce the world’s first antimicrobial electrical switching components.
The antimicrobial range presents OEMs with a distinctive new feature which offers a key point of end equipment differentiation and significantly enhances the benefits to the end user and the product itself.
