Products: Design paired with safety

The antibacterial properties of our surfaces are not affected by the choice of decor, texture and coreboard. With our matching decors you can use the same decor for different applications, even in areas with high hygiene requirements.

Cleaning

Antibacterial properties are no substitute for cleaning or disinfecting the surfaces of our products. Regular cleaning should be carried out in private applications and a hygiene plan implemented in commercial applications. Without regular cleaning the benefits of an antibacterial surface are compromised.

All of the EGGER products listed below scored a value of ≥3 which indicates that the surface has a strong antibacterial effect, which is the highest possible result in the test.
