Antimibrobial technologies group Microban International (Huntersville, North Carolina, USA) teamed up with video and audio company Poly (Santa Cruz, California, USA) to launch the VVX range of desk phones, which are joining a growing list of Poly products that feature fully integrated antimicrobial product protection to reduce the growth of bacteria.

The VVX range is designed to solve the challenge of maintaining cleanliness for hybrid work environments across many disciplines, especially in shared spaces or high-touch work settings. These Poly desk phones go a step further, with built-in antimicrobial solutions that are integrated during manufacture, enabling users to communicate with total confidence.

“We are proud to be working with Poly as the very first manufacturer to incorporate powerful antimicrobial technology in a complete range of desk phones,” says Michael Ruby, global vice president at Microban. “The proven efficacy of Microban technology against a spectrum of microbes keeps these desk phones cleaner for longer, without losing their existing functions or altering aesthetics.”

The proprietary technology works at a cellular level to help prevent the growth and reproduction of microorganisms, offering intrinsic protection that does not wash off or wear away, even after extensive use. This 24/7 protection keeps each phone cleaner for longer in between washes, along with making it more durable and extending its lifetime.

“In today’s modern workplace, we feel the very real need to include antimicrobial technology in our products,” says Richard Kenny, senior product marketing manager at Poly. “It was the perfect time for us to partner with Microban to develop the VVX desk phones integrated with Microban’s antimicrobial technology, which can be used in high-touch shared workspaces without having to worry about cleanliness. We are very pleased with our ongoing partnership with Microban, and we look to translate the patented antimicrobial protection to our other product lines.”
