The COVID-19 Coronavirus has increased public focus on the role of high-touch surfaces such as digital push-button combination locks in the transmission of infection within hospitals, residential care homes, businesses and schools around the world.
The world’s first copper-touch digital lock range to help reduce the risk of acquiring an infection from a high touch surface.
The latest research from the University of Southampton shows copper touch surfaces rapidly inactivate SARS-CoV-2 in less than ONE MINUTE.
Extensive scientific research demonstrates that pathogens including coronaviruses are proven to be rapidly and completely destroyed on contact with copper and copper alloys in less than one minute. This is a stark contrast to other popular metallic door hardware materials, on which pathogens are known to persist for several days.
There is significant national and international press coverage of the benefits of copper and copper alloys and their role in helping to reduce the spread of infection in healthcare and in the wider community.
The Cu-Shield is the world’s first keypad shield, which can be retrofitted to existing keypad locks in high-transmission areas within hospitals, residential care homes, schools and businesses alike.
