Long-lasting antimicrobial protection for window handles and profiles – fully integrated Schüco system solution
Hygiene requirements continue to increase, especially in areas such as hospitals, care homes, nurseries and public buildings. Multi-resistant germs which no longer respond to conventional treatment with medication are particularly problematic here.
Schüco has risen to this challenge with the development of a window system with an anti-microbial surface finish. Schüco SmartActive can be applied to the window system in accordance with requirements, whether just for the handles as the primary contact surfaces or also for the inside of the entire frame construction.
The Schüco handle range is available with anodised, stainless steel, stainless steel look and powder coated surface finishes. Antimicrobial profile surface finishes are exclusively applied with powder coatings.
The familiar Schüco system features are retained and enhanced with the addition of the effective antimicrobial feature.
The anti-microbial effect is achieved by means of high-purity microsilver particles that are incorporated into the surface finish. Germs that come into contact with the surface die off – and they are also efficiently prevented from reproducing. The microsilver used by Schüco is guaranteed to be nano-free and consequently cannot penetrate the skin.
- Fabrication identical to traditional Schüco metal fabrication systems; only additional recommended working step is application of the Schüco SmartActive information label
