Stainless door furniture

Standard handles are without doubt the largest carrier of healthcare associated infections!
Door Handles are one of the largest touch points within the educational environment, traditional stainless steel or painted handles increase the spread of infections by providing an area for transmission to occur, creating more carriers. Handles in particular are used thousands of times by students every day between normal cleaning, this allows bacteria to transfer, multiply and then spread to other students and staff.
