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?


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.
