In a bid to help fight Covid-19 and future viruses. We have started to manufacture Copper push plates. As well as being aesthetically pleasing to the eye, Copper alloy has been proven to have anti viral properties, so these are perfect for not just the home, but also, pubs, restaurants, bars, hotels, train stations and hospitals.
'A new study found that SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for the coronavirus pandemic, is no longer infectious on Copper within 4 hours, compared to a survival time of 72 hours on plastic surfaces. Copper has antimicrobial properties, meaning it can kill micro organisms like bacteria and viruses. However, the microorganism has to come into contact with the copper in order for it to be killed.'
According to Edward Bilsky, Ph.D, Provost and Chief Academic Officer at Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences... 'Copper disrupts bacterial cell membranes - copper ions damage cell membranes or envelopes and can destroy the DNA or RNA of the microbe. It generates oxidative stress on bacterial cells and creates hydrogen peroxide that can kill the cell. Copper interferes with proteins that operate important functions that keep bacterial cells alive.'
Rest assured, installation of these push plates around the house or other environments will have massive benefits to prevent spread of viruses both now and in the future.
This plate is cut from 1.5mm thick copper and comes with full copper fixing screws.
Dimensions - 75mm wide x 300mm height
