Copper Finger Plates

Copper has some surprisingly great properties that make it a useful tool in the fight against the spread of COVID-19 and other harmful germs. Copper door push plates are suitable for use on just about any door where there is high foot traffic or an increased transmission of germs such as bathrooms and toilets.

Copper and a range of copper alloys, often referred to in the lab as “antimicrobial copper”, has long been known for its ability to prevent the spread of SARS and MERS, both of which are part of the same coronavirus family as COVID-19.

In extensive research by the University of Southampton, they found the virus was rapidly destroyed within minutes on copper surfaces compared to common surfaces where coronavirus can remain infectious for days at a time.
