Did you know that...
... our products have an antibacterial surface property?
On the hygienically sealed and closed surfaces of the products in our Decorative Collection, bacteria and germs are reduced by 99.9% within 24 hours. This characteristic also prevents their breeding. This makes the products particularly suitable for areas subject to certain hygiene requirements.

Product overview: Design paired with safety
The certified antibacterial surface property is independent of decor, texture and coreboard. With our decor match, you can use one and the same decor for different applications - even in areas with high hygiene requirements.
Due to different choices available for coreboards, flame-retardant products (Flammex) or products with low swelling behaviour (Hydro) can also be used for applications with specific requirements.
The portfolio of our products with an antibacterial surface property is complemented by our flooring range.
The antibacterial property does not replace cleaning or disinfection. Without regular and prescribed cleaning, dirt and possible biofilms inhibit this property.

This way your projects will be successful in two ways: through the antibacterial surface property and design.
Hygiene at home
In the private sector, hygiene is particularly important in the kitchen. The products used for worktops, fronts and kitchen furniture have an antibacterial surface property. Important areas of application in your own home include sanitary areas.
In contact with many people
Where many people meet, hygiene is particularly important. In addition to restaurants and hotels, this includes schools, shopping centres and airports. Thanks to our wide range of products and decors, there are no limits to the design for architects, even in projects where antibacterial surface properties are required.
Focus on hygiene
In hygienically sensitive, public areas such as changing rooms or sanitary facilities, germ-free cleanliness is a predominant topic. Easy-to-clean and resistant materials, such as compact laminates or laminates, are also popular because of their wide range of design options (e.g rounded elements, cut-outs, no necessary edging).
Reducing risk zones
In the health sector, surfaces with antibacterial properties are particularly important. Hygiene is already of great importance in the reception area, waiting room, meeting rooms, treatment and sickrooms. When it comes to safety and design, the tested and certified EGGER products are exactly the right choice.
