Copper mitigating the risk of Covid 19 infection

<b>Copper mitigating the risk of Covid 19 infection</b>

Kensington Design is applying  a copper coating to your fixtures and fittings, such as push plates on doors, in Healthcare Facilities and establishments with high footfall and risk.

Copper mitigating the risk of Covid 19 infection

“Copper’s use in health care equipment and facilities and in public places will undoubtedly grow significantly when the cost of copper, which has been a barrier in the past, is measured by the enormous cost to society that is being brought on by this pandemic,” Freeport CEO Richard Adkerson told a briefing last week.

Why use Copper?

Copper has been more successful than any other realistic means of sterilizing these areas with a high potential for spreading infection. Copper fixtures in hospitals offer the potential to reduce the risks associated with being admitted to these facilities and improve the outcomes for many patients

The Evidence.

Spee3D commissioned Melbourne laboratory 360biolabs to look at how SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, reacts to copper.

The results showed that 96 percent of the virus was killed off in two hours and 99.2 percent in 5 hours, compared to no change on stainless steel surfaces.

This is in line with a US-government funded study published in March that found SARS-CoV-2 remained viable for up to 4 hours on copper, compared with 2 to 3 days on plastic and stainless steel.

From Handles and Push Plates to Washroom and Bathroom Fittings our team are able to Copper Coat your fixtures and fittings as per your requirements. Should you have a bespoke design or general enquiry please do not hesitate to contact us directly.
