Microsilver mechanism of action
With bacteria contacting the coated surface, the emerging silver ions enter the cell, destroy the genetic makeup and prevent any further cell division.
The increasing propagation of resistant bacterial strains has in recent years led to massive problems in the public health sector. There is an increasing risk to be infected by these germs – above all via our hands. Therefore hygiene is one of the most important issues.
Thanks to an extremely low but very efficient microsilver concentration in the coating of our handle series Medical Line, the surface acts strongly antibacterial. Further advantages are the high scratch and impact resistance and a non-porous surface which makes staining almost impossible und is easy to be cleaned.
Renowned and independent testing institutes, like the Institut Hohenstein or QualityLab, certified their antibacterial properties. This is why the antibacterially coated Medical Line handles are the ideal solution for hygiene-sensitive areas, like hospitals, nursing homes, schools, nursery schools and public buildings.
