Antimicrobial copper products for cancer support centre

Antimicrobial copper products for cancer support centre

Allgood have supplied a range of antimicrobial copper products for The Sir Robert Ogden MacMillian Centre (SROMC). SROMC is the cancer support and information centre based at Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust, providing state of the art facilities for patients and their families across North Yorkshire.

As always in a healthcare environment, it is imperative that good hand hygiene is maintained at all times to stop the cross contamination of bacteria between users of the hospital. As door furniture is an item that is frequently touched by many different people, IBI Group wanted an ironmongery solution that would protect patients and visitors against the cross contamination of Healthcare Acquired Infections (HCIS) whilst having a matching finish to rest of the mechanical hardware.

Antimicrobial Copper is the most effective touch surface material in the fight against pathogeinic microbes, killing greater than 99.9% of bacteria within two hours of exposure. No other material comes close. Historically, most antimicrobial copper door furniture has a copper-like appearance but this would not meet the requirement of a stainless steel aesthetic. By using Allgood's unique Contego range of ironmongery formed from a proven antimicrobial copper alloy that has the appearance of stainless steel, Allgood were able to provide a solution that met the architect’s requirements.

A full specification was created using Contego range such as lever handles, push plates, pull handles, WC turns and escutcheons complimented with satin stainless steel mechanical hardware such as signage, door closers, locks and kick plates. By selecting the truly unique Contego range, Allgood were able to supply an ironmongery package that matched the aesthetic throughout whilst providing protecting against the spread of bacteria, reducing the risk of infection for the users of the building.
