The easy and efficient way to improve standards of hygiene – ABLOY ACTIVE /Abloy/AbloyFI/tuotteet/abloyactive.jpg Through physical contact with door surfaces, microbes accumulate and are spread from one surface to another. Infections caused by microbes are harmful to health and expensive, with absenteeism caused by sickness costing individuals and businesses. However, door contact surfaces can be protected from microbes. ABLOY ACTIVE is an infection-reducing antimicrobial solution for door accessories such as handles, pulls, panic bars and cylinders. Active destroys 99 percent of harmful bacteria, including the MRSA hospital bacteria, Listeria and Salmonella, and is 100 percent safe for the user. The highest level of microbial protection can be achieved by combining Abloy Active and door automatics, which provides a hands-free door opening solution. The power of antimicrobial silver ABLOY ACTIVE – Silver particles in the paint applied to the door fittings create the antimicrobial barrier. Silver is nature's own active bacteria-killing substance, and its antimicrobial properties have been known since the Middle Ages. Silver is proven and established as a safe and effective substance used in coating materials. The active antimicrobial particles are added during the manufacture of the paint and it remains active as long as the paint lasts on the door fittings – both on the outer surface and the inner surface where scratches occur. ACTIVE – the coating remains antimicrobial and hygienically protective, regardless of cleaning cycles.
