How It Works

It's as simple as 1,2,3

  1. Microbes are deposited onto the door handle by users.
  2. Silver ions (Ag) penetrate the cell membrane of the microbe.
  3. The ions suffocate the microbe and attack it's DNA to prevent reproduction.  

Common microbes found on door furniture include E-coli, Salmonella, Camplylobacteur and Staph Aureus.
