Antimicrobial Locks

Appears in the issue.

Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies of Carmel, Indiana, has announced that Schlage levers and locks, Von Duprin exit and panic devices, Glynn-Johnson push/pull levers, and Ives door accessories are now available with an optional antimicrobial coating that inhibits the growth of  substances such as bacteria, mold, and mildew on their surfaces. The coating uses ionic silver, a natural antimicrobial that interacts with bonding sites on the microbe surface to slow the growth of germs. The silver ions are released at a slow, steady rate for continuous, long-term protection. This coating would be useful in healthcare, education, and food service applications.
