LuminOre CopperTouch - Industry Uses

Industry Uses 

 

High-touch areas present health risks because of surface contamination in environments from healthcare to public and private spaces. LuminOre COpper Touch® bactericidal copper continuously kills 99.9% bacteria1 within two hours of exposure between regular cleanings and can help keep a range of risk-prone surfaces continuously clean from bacteria1.

 

Where hygiene is a concern, it makes sense to outfit facilities with products manufactured from LuminOre Copper Touch® bactericidal copper surfaces.

 

By incorporating LCT surfaces, hospitals, hotels, airports, cruise ships, trains, and residential spaces can become much cleaner environments. 

 

 

 

Uses in Design:

 

Today, more than ever, architects and designers are challenged to make the built environment safer and more cost-effective. LuminOre Copper Touch® bactericidal copper can help create settings that look beautiful, are sustainable, and provide an improved tool to architects focused on value-based design.

 

Laboratory testing has shown that LCT is more effective at killing bacteria when compared to traditional materials such as plastic, stainless steel, wood, and coatings.

 

Uses in Public Domains:

 

LuminOre Copper Touch® bactericidal copper alloys can be used in public spaces such as fitness facilities and schools, as well as private spaces like hotel rooms and residential spaces. 

 

These attractive, durable, and easy to maintain copper surfaces represent the only class of solid surface materials registered with the EPA to actively kill bacteria1. When cleaned regularly, LCT bactericidal copper alloy surfaces kill more than 99.9% of bacteria1 within 2 hours of exposure.

 

Uses in Healthcare:

 

Because of the threat of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in a range of hospital and other healthcare environments, a compelling case can be made for more effective cleaning protocols and product innovation to aid the fight against bacteria.

 

LuminOre Copper Touch® anti-microbial copper alloys are this innovation. LCT surfaces kill 99.9% bacteria1, when cleaned regularly, and are an EPA-registered tool for continuously cleaner surfaces. The EPA registration is supported by data from rigorous Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) testing.

 

The goal is to break the chain of transmission.

 

With healthcare workers, doctors, nurses, family, visitors, and patients at risk, LuminOre Copper Touch® anti-microbial copper surfaces are a powerful tool to supplement existing cleaning practices and help achieve this goal.

 

A range of state-of-the art healthcare facilities have installed various products made with LuminOre Copper Touch® anti-microbial copper alloy, such as touch plates, door handles, and IV poles, as an aggressive stance in the fight against bacteria1 that can cause HAIs.

 

 

Uses in Fitness:

 

Millions of Americans use fitness facilities for health and wellness. Yet even with regular cleaning, health clubs, spas, gyms, and athletic facilities can be a breeding ground for infectious bacteria and illness.

 

MRSA infections disrupt training, athletic, and fitness programs including at the collegiate and professional levels. More than half of athletic trainers surveyed in a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said they have treated an athlete with a infection or sickness caused by MRSA.*

 

A broad range of products made with LuminOre Copper Touch® anti-microbial copper surfaces to improve the cleanliness of sports and fitness facilities:

 

  • Dumbbells, pulley systems and attachments

  • Door knobs, push plates and handles

  • Water fountains

 

Education:

 

Sick days at school, whether for a student or faculty member, increasingly impact education and create headaches like handling stay-at-home ill children and finding teacher substitutes. As with other industries, bacteria and infections are a growing concern in educational spaces.

 

In school environments, a range of surfaces have been found to be greatly contaminated with bacteria and these surfaces are touched EVERY day. From water fountains to bathroom faucet levers, toilet seats and flush handles, desktops, keyboards, and fitness equipment, these surfaces all pose a risk for exposure to infectious bacteria in schools. And they are all able to be made with LuminOre Copper Touch®, a bactericidal solid copper alloy surface.

 

A broad range of products made with LuminOre Copper Touch® bactericidal copper surfaces to improve the cleanliness of educational facilities:

 

  • Toilet seats and flush levers, sinks and faucets

  • Door knobs, push plates and handles
