DOM door hardware now with a 'Silver Lining.'
Today, implementing hygiene regimes and social distancing has become the new norm for society. Door handles and knobs are the most frequently touched surfaces in a building and are considered one of the worst areas to harbour harmful microbes.
DOM security is renowned for introducing products that are sustainable and to take our products one-step further adding our antimicrobial panic bars, digital handles, and digital cylinders.
We are pleased to announce that DOM has joined forces with Sanpura (antimicrobial technology provider) along with Gbneuhaus and Inver. These organisations are specialists in their field and are now supplying DOM with nano-silver ion technology, which is applied to the DOM Guard digital door handle. Pro digital cylinder and Panic hardware. Silver is a natural antimicrobial and is proven to prevent the growth and spread of many known micro-organisms, preventing upto 99.9% protection against bacteria, mould, and viruses.
Behind the science
Once contact is made with our antimicrobial range of door hardware, the slow and constant release of silver ions will react with the bacteria, preventing it from multiplying and eventually killing the micro-organism. This microbe-resistant technology will be applied to critical areas such as handles, doorknobs and handlebars.
By installing DOM Security's antimicrobial range, facilities manager and building owners will be playing their part in protecting individuals by reducing the risk of cross-contamination and suppressing the infection level of common bacteria and viruses. Our products are suitable for all environments, especially hospitals, care homes, housing associations, leisure, education commercial office space, and the hospitality industry.
"Practising hygiene habits are essential", comments National Sales Manager Mr Lloyd Chitty, "specifying our antimicrobial range into shared areas can help provide an added level of protection in addition to regular cleaning regimes"
