FSB Anti-Infection Coating

how handles and handrails minimise germs

Multi-resistant pathogens are a major topic these days due to the speed with which they spread and the great risk they pose notably in hospitals and nursing institutions. FSB makes a decisive contribution towards fighting “hospital germs” with its Anti-Infection Coating (AIC), a special finish that can be applied to numerous of its handle ranges as well as to its barrier-free ErgoSystem® for sanitary spaces. Launched in 2019 and available for all products in stainless steel and aluminium, FSB’s Anti-Infection Coating guarantees a 99.99% reduction of multiresistant pathogens (certified to ISO 22196:2011).

High levels of patronage in public buildings increase the risk of viruses, bacteria and even multi-resistant pathogens being transmitted. Potential carriers here are, in the first instance, items that are regularly taken hold of such as door levers, window handles or handrails. Products by FSB with an innovative Anti-Infection Coating dependably reduce the risk of infection for hospital patients, nursing staff and visitors alike.

One coating – several areas of application

FSB’s Anti-Infection Coating constitutes a clean, environmentally sound solution for all areas of a building – be it in combination with M Series electronic door fittings, F Series tubular door pulls with finger scanners, or classic door and window fittings. Other products such as surfacemounted planar recessed pulls for bathroom and sliding doors can likewise be supplied with AIC if so desired. Sanitary spaces are a sphere in which handles, and accessories too, are particularly likely to be contaminated by infectious germs. As a result, FSB’s Anti-Infection Coating is optionally available for the ErgoSystem® E300 range in stainless steel and A100 range in aluminium. These two handhold collections, as functional as they are good-looking, comprise a variety of handrail configurations (e. g. for shower rooms or hallways), corner fittings and grab rails of various length and, when enhanced with AIC, deliver freedom from both barriers and germs.
