Redefining Clean for Hybrid Workspaces with Protected Desk Phones

Microban International, a pioneer of antimicrobial technologies, and Poly, a leading video and audio company, are pleased to announce the launch of the VVX range of desk phones, which joins the growing list of Poly products that feature fully integrated antimicrobial product protection to reduce the growth of bacteria, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The VVX range is designed to solve the challenge of maintaining cleanliness for hybrid working 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 and giving them added peace of mind. This 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 ‘always on’, 24/7 protection keeps each phone cleaner for longer in between washes, as well as making it more durable and extending its lifetime.

Michael Ruby, Global Vice President at Microban, commented: “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. 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.”

Richard Kenny, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Poly, commented: “In today’s modern workplace, we feel the very real need to include antimicrobial technology in our products. 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.”
