Getting a handle on germ control
29 September 2017
Washroom hygiene specialist P-Wave has launched two new patented systems to help reduce the spread of germs from door handles in high risk areas, such as kitchens and washrooms.
The new P-Hold fits over the existing door handle – it comes in three sizes and takes just 30 seconds to install – and the P-Plate replaces the existing push plate when there is no handle.
Both systems are long lasting and low maintenance. They don’t require films, sleeves or gels and instead utilise silver ion technology which interrupts bacteria’s cell’s ability to form the chemical bonds essential to their survival. Silver has long been used in hospitals for its anti-bacterial properties, but according to P-Wave there has never previously been a cost effective way to use it more widely in this way.
Dave Carson from P-Wave said: “No matter how exemplary we are about our own personal hygiene, most of us approach the exit door with no small sense of dread. We all know that not everyone washes their hands after using the toilet for instance, so what germs will the door be harbouring? With our new systems, that worry can be a thing of the past!”
