Antimicrobial Shower Innovation for NHS

An effective, simple solution to control harmful bacteria in the hospital setting

Service Type

Water Treatment


Acorn has recently introduced an innovative way of addressing Cardiff & Vale NHS Trusts concerns around control of bacteria in shower heads across the healthcare estate.

Designed and manufactured in the UK, these WRAS approved Challis Ag+ antimicrobial protected showerheads are replaced every 3 months. Colour coding is an essential part of the design, which enables swift identification of any shower heads which need to be changed over to the colour assigned to the relevant 3 month period.

Costs associated with cleaning and maintenance of showers can be significant not only in cash terms but all in resources required. The Challis Ag+ recycling scheme is quick easy and straight forward and has significantly cut these costs. Old showers are shredded, recycled and certificate of destruction issued to the NHS Trust.
