Just Manufacturing announces the expansion of its healthcare products line with the addition of sinks, handwashing stations and fixtures made with CuVerroÂ® antimicrobial copper surfaces.
CuVerroÂ® antimicrobial copper sinks, handwashing stations and fixtures made with antimicrobial copper surfaces take the complexity out of the infection control process while helping to ensure maximum effectiveness. The antimicrobial copper used in these products is designed to kill 99.9 percentÂ of bacteria.*
One of the most frustrating problems facing professionals in infection control is how to prevent hospital-acquired infections. More public and healthcare environments supplement current infection and disease control practices with antimicrobial copper, antibacterial products, hospital sinks, handwashing sinks and scrub sinks.
CuVerroÂ® Antimicrobial Copper Nickel surfaces are attractive, safe to use and never wear or wash away. Copper is the only active, bacteria-killing ingredient in CuVerro alloys. EPA-registered CuVerro surfaces, begin killing pathogens* on contact, killing 99.9 percentÂ within twoÂ hours, and keep on killing 24/7.
The use of an antimicrobial copper surface is a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices, including those practices related to cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces. The antimicrobial copper surface material has been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but it does not necessarily prevent cross contamination.
*Testing demonstrates effective antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
