Question:

With the country continuing to work through the COVID-19 pandemic, are there any solutions available for hardware and doors that can help combat the virus?

 

Answer:
Many top manufacturers, including Assa Abloy, Allegion and dormakaba, all offer finish processes available for healthier doors and hardware known as AM (antimicrobial). The antimicrobial finish is a silver-based plating process that helps to inhibit the growth of bacteria, funguses, mold and mildew. It is not a process that can be applied after the hardware is installed, it is permanently part of the finish. Antimicrobial solutions from manufacturers include exit and panic devices, push/pull locks, door accessories, as well was locks and biometric readers. In addition, Trimco Hardware offers a copper finish as part of their Healthy Hardware.
