Antimicrobial door hardware covers a range of anti-bacterial ironmongery with a coating called Hygienilac to kill harmful bacteria and reduce the spread of infection by use of antimicrobial door handles. This coating stops bacteria getting the nutrients they need to survive and 99.9% will simply die within 24 hours meaning it is perfect for antimicrobial door hardware like door knobs, handles and hinges for our fire resistant doors.

Hygienilac coating goes on working for up to ten years because of the low water solubility and resistance to UV light which stops it breaking down. Non-carcinogenic, non-mutagenic with no effect on sensitive skin, it is completely harmless to humans you can read more detail here.
