Why use Clean PullCord?
Standard pull cords can support the growth of dangerous bacteria and are difficult to clean.
The Biomaster Clean PullCord has a non PVC polymer coating with built in Biomaster Antimicrobial Technology which means it can be wiped over, will never discolour through use and will be the last PullCord you will ever need to buy.
