The specialist products that make up the Scolmore Medical Solutions range are from the Mode wiring accessories collection. All Mode products are manufactured using Urea Formaldehyde, which has similar inherent properties to antimicrobial additives that inhibit the growth of infectious diseases. All products independently tested achieved a 99.99% kill off rate across all four types of the strains of bacteria – MRSA, E-Coli, Salmonella, Klebsiella Pneumonia and enveloped viruses.
Mode plates have also been independently tested and have shown to have anti-viral properties against enveloped and non-enveloped viruses. After a contact period of 4 hours, Mode was shown to have a 99.99% kill off rate against enveloped viruses and a 92% kill off rate against non-enveloped viruses. It has also achieved 99.98% kill off rate against influenza A(H1N1) after a 24 hour period.

Scolmore recently added EBBs (Equipotential Bonding Busbars) to its Click wiring accessories range. EBBs play a major role in ensuring patient and clinician safety. In accordance with the Requirements for Electrical Installations BS 7671:2018 AMD2 Section 710 (Medical Locations) and the Health Technical Memorandum HTM06 01:2017, all Group 1 and 2 Medical Locations are to have an Equipotential Bonding Busbar (EBB) and associated supplementary protective equipotential bonding installed.
