ANTIMICROBIAL DOOR HARDWARE & SOLUTIONS

The Flying Locksmiths partners with Allegion for the highest standard in antimicrobial door hardware. We offer hardware for panic and exit devices, push/pull locks, levers, locks, biometric meters, and other door accessories. These products are coated with a silver ion solution antimicrobial coating. While these products are not designed to be a substitute for good hygiene practices, they can help to keep bacteria from spreading.

HOW DOES AN ANTIMICROBIAL SURFACE WORK?

For bacteria to grow, its cells must be able to multiply by forming new protoplasm from nutrients available in the environment. The antimicrobial coating, made using ionic silver (AG+), is specially formulated to inhibit the growth of bacteria by interrupting cell multiplication. Ionic silver coatings interact with the bonding sites on the microbe surface. The result is that the silver ions surround bacterial cells, blockading food and slowing the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew.

WHERE IS ANTIMICROBIAL HARDWARE MOST EFFECTIVE?

High traffic, public use areas are ideally suited to the antimicrobial coated door hardware. With hundreds or thousands of people accessing these areas every day, safety should be top of mind. Adding door hardware with an antimicrobial coating can make a big difference by inhibiting the growth of bacteria on these high-touch surfaces.
