With the coronavirus crisis touching nearly every country in the world, and lockdowns and social distancing the norm, the demand from commercial properties to take extra measures to ensure a more sanitary work environment for customers and employees has become a high priority. Toronto’s Standard Metal Hardware, a leading manufacturer of commercial and architectural door hardware products, is answering the call. In exciting news for their many customers, and new customers to come, Standard Metal Hardware is now offering Antimicrobial Coated Door Hardware to better meet demand. The new coated hardware is designed to protect clients and staff from exposure to harmful microorganisms, bacteria and mold. The coating is completely clear and doesn’t alter the aesthetics of the door hardware.

“Research has shown that microorganisms, bacteria, and mold can live on surfaces, such as door handles, for up to 72 hours,” commented Adam Bortolussi, President of Standard Metal Hardware. “While constant sanitation of these surfaces is unrealistic, our team has worked with our suppliers to proudly offer a clear and durable antimicrobial coating that will not alter the quality or architectural appearance of our products. This coating acts as an additional layer of defense to protect against the spread of infectious diseases.”
