Research shows that Antimicrobial Copper kills 99.9% of bacteria within 2 hours of exposure.
The research also revealed that Stainless Steel isn’t always the best material for healthcare environments. Stainless Steel (or SSS) showed no antimicrobial efficacy under test conditions and tends to harbour germs.
This is why Rutland offers a full range of metal finishes which are pre-coated in Copper to assist specifiers in the healthcare industry. Hospitals, medical centres and surgeries are all subject to the threat of infection and cross contamination which is a huge concern and ongoing issue for local authorities.
We can now help you achieve antimicrobial copper efficacy with a matched Stainless Steel finish using our SNP (Satin Nickel Plate).
In addition to the satin stainless finish, we also offer a whole range of pre-coated antimicrobial copper finishes including PNP (Polished Nickel plate), PVD (Polished Brass finish) and AB (Antique Brass).
This means when specifying Antimicrobial Copper we can match the door closer to your touch sensitive hardware.
