Centaur uPVC Cable Management
Manufacturing in Britain for over 40 years, Centaur has become a leading name in the uPVC cable management market.
Centrally located in Redditch, England, Centaur products are distributed via a nationwide network of nearly 400 distributors.
Combining product development, continued investment and industry expertise, Centaur provide a comprehensive range of cable management products enabling a complete installation. A dedicated fabrication section allows bespoke offerings, tailor made for individual requirements that can be delivered direct to site.
Being conscious of minimising the impact of its processes on the environment the company utilises a percentage of and recycles its own non-biodegradable raw materials.
Anti-microbial uPVC cable management systems have been available for some years but the need to provide a healthy and safe environment particularly in the healthcare sector has not gone away as neither have the harmful organisms.
The basis of the additive is the use of silver which has been used for centuries as a biosatic agent. When contacted by moisture an electrochemical reaction releases silver ions. These ions penetrate microbes rendering them unable to function, grow, or reproduce.
To ensure our additives are effective and compliant with ISO 22196:2011 ‘Measurement of antibacterial activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces’, periodic testing is undertaken by specialists in the industry. Untreated control samples are submitted with treated items and recent results show that a 99.9% reduction is achieved against E coli and Staphylococcus aureus being two of the most prominent bacterial infections.
Through widespread specification Centaur has pioneered the use of anti-microbial additives in its grades of uPVC and continues to help the control the spread of harmful bacteria in the public sector.
Centaur can offer an accredited CPD (Continuing Professional Development) course in Antimicrobial uPVC Cable Containment.. For more information please contact [email protected]

Posts next to work stations and desks provide safe access to outlets and can avoid unnecessary cable lengths and an increase in trip hazards. Poles are available to standard floor to ceiling heights but specials can be made available.
