Integrating antimicrobial technology

01 October 2020

SALTO HAS ADDED BioCote antimicrobial technology to its door handles to improve hygiene.

The company says: “In the new normal, we’re all going to have to get used to doing things differently and hygiene is something that will play a greater part in all our lives. That’s why Salto incorporates BioCote, the market-leading antimicrobial technology, in our electronic smart lock range.

“Whatever type of logistics, warehouse or distribution centre building you’re managing, it will have a greater or lesser number of doors and that means each person that uses the door transfers the bacteria on their hands to the door handle every time they go through it.”

BioCote has been tested against a feline strain of coronavirus, showing a reduction of 90% in two hours. Previous testing has revealed that BioCote delivers 99.9 percent, 24/7 protection against an array of microbes including Influenza A H1N1, E.coli, Salmonella, and antibiotic-resistant CRE, VRE, and MRSA. 

The invisible silver-ion technology is integrated with the handle during the manufacturing process and cannot be wiped off or worn away. The finish is said to be long-lasting and maintains its antimicrobial performance over the expected lifetime of the Salto electronic lock products.
