Copper Door Handles

Metal Sheets is launching a range of antimicrobial copper Door Handles. Manufactured from solid 99.9% pure copper these copper door handles can help reduce the transmission of infections from bacteria, yeasts and viruses. Metallic copper has the intrinsic property of being antimicrobial.

The handle was styled in-house and manufactured on our CNC machinery. This Push Pull Copper Door Handle, 240mm x 75mm, is aimed at new build or as a replacement for existing less hygienic stainless steel and aluminium handles.

Replacing existing door handles with Metal Sheets Ltd Solid Copper Handles is an extra defence in controlling infection transmission in factories, offices, restaurants, shops and public buildings for example. Door handles are high traffic touch surfaces.

Matching solid copper Door Kick Plates and Door Finger Push Plates can also be supplied.

This handle is 240mm x 75mm though we can manufacture other sizes to order.

Remember Metal Sheets ltd also manufactures solid copper table tops, copper counters tops and much more.

Installing copper products is an adjunct to good hand hygiene and cleaning practices, not a substitute. Copper provides a speedy and continuous reduction of microbes between touches and between cleans, for the lifetime of the product.

Antimicrobial Copper Touch Surfaces

Metal Sheets Limited has produced this update on copper as an antimicrobial touch surface due to the resurgence of interest in copper caused by the current pandemic.

The following information is available on the internet from reputable sources, but Metal Sheets Ltd make No Public Health Claims.

Copper has the intrinsic property of being antimicrobial, this goes back 1000’s of years. Recent research has indicated that copper surfaces kill many common pathogens including MRSA in less than 2 hours.

Research in 2015 indicates copper is effective against Coronaviruses and a very recent research paper published in March 2020 in the New England Journal of Medicine reports on Corona virus SARS-CoV-2 surface stability on Copper, Stainless Steel and Plastic.

The recent findings indicate the virus remains viable on Stainless Steel for up to 2 days and Plastic for up to 3 days, but only up to 4 hours on Copper though other research shown in NHS guidelines suggests corona viruses remain viable up to 5 days on inanimate objects in air conditioned environments and up to 8 hours on copper.

If you are looking at your work spaces Metal Sheets Ltd manufacture bespoke size retrofitting Copper Covers for Desk Tops, Counter Tops , Table Tops and Food Preparation Stations.

Door Push Plates are common touch surface, most are made of stainless steel, aluminium or plastic. Metal Sheets Ltd manufactures door push plates in copper in bespoke and standard sizes. Different copper thicknesses are available depending on the duty cycle.
