How it Works

It's as simple as 1,2,3

  1. Microbes are deposited onto the door handle by users.
  2. Silver ions (Ag) penetrate the cell membrane of the microbe.
  3. The ions suffocate the microbe and attack it's DNA to prevent reproduction.

Common microbes found on door furniture include E-coli, Salmonella, Camplylobacteur and Staph Aureus.


Independent Testing

Undertaken by Wickham Laboratories

ISO 22196:2011 (measure of antibacterial activity on plastics and other surfaces). Coating was shown to:

  • Kill 99.99% of E-coli.
  • Kill 99.99% of Staph Aureus.
  • Kill 98.6% of Salmonella.

Field Trials:

  • 3 door locations selected (Male toilet, female toilet and busy canteen).
  • Stainless steel door handles provided benchmark.
