ArmPull in bronze and brass - Self cleaning, anti bacterial door handles
ArmPull is also made in bronze, brass. The surfaces of copper and its alloys, such as brass and bronze, are antimicrobial. These materials have the ability to kill a wide range of harmful germs and bacteria relatively quickly, often within two hours or less, and with a high degree of efficiency. Think of them as self cleaning. Antimicrobial copper-alloys can prevent frequently touched surfaces from serving as hot spots for the growth and spread of pathogenic microbes, especially in healthcare facilities where harmful viruses, bacteria, and fungi gather on high touch areas like door handles. These germ killing properties have been proven by an extensive body of research. Research also suggests that if touch surfaces are made using copper alloys, the lessened transmission of disease-causing organisms can reduce patient infections in hospital intensive care units by as much as 58%.
