Marco’s uPVC trunking systems

Back to Blog Listing

Marco’s uPVC trunking systems are available with Marco’s built in Hygieia protection.

Marco’s Hygieia is a built in protective element, which is incorporated into the uPVC

compound during manufacture.

The Hygieia compound utilises a silver ion technology, providing anti-microbial protection throughout, creating a defence against 99.9% of harmful bacteria growth.

This protects against and prevents the growth of, bacteria, fungi, mildew and moulds, including:


• E-Coli

• Klebsiella Pneumoniae

• Streptococci

Due to the Hygieia element being incorporated into the PVC during manufacture, and therefore an integral part of the trunking, Marco can ensure there is no degradation of performance during use, even if the trunking becomes scratched or damaged, even years after initial installation.

All Hygieia products are tested in accordance with ISO22196:2007, which specifies the method of evaluating the antibacterial activity of treated plastic products and is in compliance with all relevant European regulations. 

All Marco products supplied with Hygieia protection are packaged in a blue protective film, to protect and differentiate it from standard uPVC products.
