Intastop has joined forces with Italian company Ponte Giulio, one of Europe’s largest manufacturers of safety solutions for bathrooms, in order to bring much needed people protection products to the UK market.

From October 2019, Intastop Ltd will start offering products from the Tubocolor range by Ponte Giulio; a renowned manufacture of grab rails that have antimicrobial protection and anti-slip credentials bringing a new dimension of safety and infection control to more elements of building interior specification, in both new build projects and refurbishments.

“We are delighted to have formed a partnership with Ponte Giulio whose range of grab rails are in synchronicity with our own range of products,” said Lisa Turner Marketing Manager Intastop Ltd. “They complement our range of door and wall protection and the antimicrobial properties that these products offer, allows us to extend and enhance the solutions we have for the care home and healthcare sectors where such requirements are in high demand.”

The Tubocolor range has ‘Biocote’ technology, which kills, 80% of microbes within 15 minutes and 99.9% within two hours, and which will last the life time of the product.  The grab rails are different to any others on the market as they are non-slip yet have a smooth finish, are eco-friendly and fully recyclable and come in range of colours giving adaptability for interior schemes and brand continuity. Furthermore, they are PVC coated giving them a non-porous finish unlike other comparable products which are powder coated. In addition, this new range of Grab Rails offers ultimate tensile strength and high fire resistance and are flame proof, the entire range of products also meet with the guidelines in Approved Document M of the Building Regulation and British Standards.

“Finding products that bring solutions to our customers is very important to us as we continue to develop our range, and Tubocolor emulates exactly what we do,” said Lisa. “It will give us greater diversification to be able to deliver complete specification solutions in bathrooms and other areas where grab rails provide much needed stability and confidence to those accessing the areas.”
