Reduce infection spread with innovative new antimicrobial door furniture
It is a well-established fact that any surface which is touched by large numbers of people is likely to become a hub for the spread of infection if one of them is ill.
Colds, flu, stomach upsets and the like can rapidly circulate and infect one person after another - and with the battle against Covid-19 currently raging, never has it been as important to reduce the likelihood of the spread of infection than it is now.
Door handles are the perfect example...
Even in an office environment they can spread enough germs to temporarily decimate the workforce, but a typical handle in a public washroom is home to up to 40,000 germs per square inch. Standard handles are one of the most prolific carriers of healthcare associated infections and one of the most difficult items to keep hygienically clean.
There is a solution though: by replacing your facility's door handles with P-Wave's fire-rated Stericore antimicrobial version, you can drastically reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses. Tested and proven effective against MRSA, E-Coli, Salmonella & Norovirus, Stericore handles are scratch, water, UV and fade-resistant and will not rust. They are antimicrobial to the core, offering protection for around 25 years.
Offered as standard in three versions - P-Hold (75mm or 100mm wide), P-Plate (75mm or 100mm wide) and P-Lever - and in blue, black or grey/silver, Stericore handles look great and are easy to clean.
