Antimicrobial handle helps boost hospital infection prevention methods


HOPPE's SecuSan antimicrobial surface solution reduces microbial growth by more than 99%

Healthcare facilities can help to reduce the spread of bacteria using a new maintenance-free, antimicrobial surface for door hardware.

HOPPE has developed SecuSan, an antibacterial and antimicrobial surface for door and window handles, to help ensure high hygiene standards wherever people are present in large numbers.

SecuSan immediately suppresses the growth of pathogens on the handle on a lasting basis, with independent tests proving it reduces microbial growth by more than 99%.

Andy Matthews, head of sales at HOPPE (UK), said: “SecuSan is ideal for facilities managers overseeing healthcare buildings.

“In these types of buildings where there is so much to monitor and keep clean, SecuSan helps to maintain high hygiene standards as it actively fights bacteria and fungi from the moment it is installed. This is particularly important in hospitals and other healthcare facilities where patients are much more vulnerable.”
