Healthy Hardware made from Bactericidal Copper Alloy

Posted by Amanda @ Edge on May 28, 2020 1:47:48 PM

COVID-19 has started many conversations about what we can all be doing as facility managers, business owners, and citizens in general to be prepared for major health threats in the future.  As we aim to reopen and readjust our facilities with employee and public safety in mind, having the cleanest touch surface solutions is critical.

Some bacteria can live on surfaces for many hours or entire days at a time. We are proud to offer solutions for high touch surfaces made of copper alloy, which has proven to kill certain types of bacteria in a short amount of time. When compared to silver-containing coating, antimicrobial copper surfaces may kill 99.9% of bacteria in 2 hours or less!





Features & Benefits of Healthy Hardware:

  • Wide range of hardware options
  • Hands-free products and custom options available
  • EPA-registered copper alloy 99% of certain bacteria within 2 hours
  • Not simply a coating so the benefits remain through the product lifespan
  • It’s sustainable, as it is made with pre and post-consumer recycled materials

We anticipate a really high demand for these products given its seamless implementation into a range of facilities and its effectiveness in minimizing transferring of bacteria on frequently contacted surfaces. Additionally, the proposed NYS Senate Bill S8180 will require new, publicly funded construction projects to use an antimicrobial copper alloy where appropriate. 

Let us know how we can help you adapt your facilities with these solutions, as well as any project needs for this or the many other health-related solutions that we are working on with Grainger to support our customers’ facilities throughout NYC.
