Legrand’s Adorne Collection Now Offers Microban

At the 2023 International Builders’ Show, Legrand® and Microban® announced a partnership to add antimicrobial protection to Legrand’s popular adorne Collection of designer switches and outlets.

Legrand’s Microban-treated offering – which will include all adorne switches and dimmers (excluding smart devices at this time) as well as the matching plastic wallplates – features innovative technology that works at the cellular level to inhibit the growth of microbes for cleaner and more durable devices. By integrating this technology during manufacturing, the antimicrobial protection will work continuously to drastically reduce stains and odors for the entirety of the product’s expected lifetime.  

“The adorne Collection has always been groundbreaking,” said Manny Linhares, Sr. Director/Product Management at Legrand. “Dedication to exceptional design means finding new ways to deliver life-enhancing benefits. As the world becomes more focused on cleanliness and well-being, we knew Microban would be our perfect partner in offering cleaner designer switches for customers seeking to create cleaner overall spaces.”

Steve Lutes, Director/Business Development at Microban agrees. “The Microban team has worked hard to innovate and establish a portfolio of over 25 approved microbial technologies; partnering with great manufacturers like Legrand allows us to extend the benefits of that built-in protection to a broader range of solid products. When you think of all the times you, or your family, touch a given light switch, it’s easy to see how applying Microban to the adorne Collection will help keep those devices fresher and lasting longer.”

While the initial phase of the partnership exclusively will include product from Legrand’s premier collection of wiring devices, additional products and solutions featuring Microban protection are expected later this year.
