T&S Brass and Bronze Works is proud to offer an array of hygiene-boosting solutions for all kinds of facilities, including an update to its antimicrobial-coated faucet handles. The antimicrobial coating, available as an option on freshly redesigned wrist-action, four-arm and lever handles, provides a barrier against microorganisms like bacteria, molds, mildew and fungi. The coating creates an environment where these microbes lose their ability to grow and flourish. Laboratory tests have shown that antimicrobial-coated metal harbors almost no bacteria 24 hours after application, whereas non-treated metal demonstrates significant bacterial growth in the same period. The antimicrobial coating on T&S faucet handles is a clear finish that is fingerprint-resistant and lasts the life of the product.
