Antimicrobial Electrical Products
Established by Mario Fanton over 50 years ago and still run as a successful family business to this day, Fanton Spa has become a major global player in the field of electrical products for domestic and industrial use. Located in North-Eastern Italy, Fanton’s site comprises of a 18,000 square metre manufacturing plant, over 2,000 square metres of office space and a new, cutting-edge automated warehouse with 40,000 cubic metre capacity and space for over 9,000 pallets, enabling ultra-fast turnaround of orders to deliver outstanding customer service.
The FME and FANTONET lines have grown in conjunction with a network of highly competent agents to make Fanton a strong presence not only in the Italian market but also in Europe and the rest of the world. Representing innovation made in Italy, Fanton places a strong focus on attention to detail, innovation, functionality and safety when designing and manufacturing new products – delivering the products of tomorrow to the customers of today.
To drive further product innovation in the market and meet an increased focus on hygiene, Fanton has partnered with BioCote® to introduce antimicrobial additives to their lines of plugs, sockets, multi-sockets and adaptors. Adding BioCote® silver ion technology during manufacturing, helps to reduce microbes such as bacteria by up to 99.99%, deactivate influenza A H1N1 and even reduce a strain of the coronavirus family by 90% in 2 hours on protected surfaces. This means, Fanton’s protected products are hygienically clean and fresher for longer, have a reduced risk of cross-contamination and an extended usable lifetime by preventing premature material degradation.
Fanton’s BioCote® protected product range is well suited to both domestic and industrial applications, but it is of particular use in healthcare settings, nursing homes, schools and children’s play areas, food processing facilities, exhibition areas and sports venues. Protected products work alongside regular and robust cleaning regimes to produce the ultimate hygienic solution, which is why Fanton promotes the use of sanitizing cleaning spray based on 97% pure isopropyl alcohol and an antibacterial UVC light that kills a wide range of microbes.
