There are a lot of reasons why facilities should use CuVerro products over other available options, such as stainless steel. Here are just a few:
- Cleaner Than Stainless Steel, Safer for Everybody.
CuVerro antimicrobial copper begins killing infectious bacteria on contact and keeps killing it¹ and unlike stainless steel and silver-based coatings, CuVerro continuously destroys and eliminates bacteria between cleanings no matter how many times it comes into contact with new, additional bacteria. CuVerro kills microorganisms so completely that the bacteria are not able to mutate or build a resistance.
- CuVerro - One Product, Lots of Manufacturing Options.
In addition to being incredibly effective at killing bacteria, CuVerro is also an extremely versatile material. It is used to create safer, antimicrobial fixtures, touch surfaces, and medical devices such as: over bed tables, nurse call pendants, bed rails, grab bars, faucet handles, sinks, and many others. CuVerro has even been used to create weight-training equipment that fights the spread of germs in fitness and rehab facilities.
- Cleaner, Safer Medical Facilities.
CuVerro creates a strong defense in the fight against Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI’s). Outfitting a facility with antimicrobial copper creates a cleaner environment that continually and actively kills the germs responsible for HAI’s, even between cleanings. State of the art facilities such as the Cleveland Clinic, Kaiser Permanente, and Memorial Sloan Cancer Treatment Center use products made with CuVerro that are helping to make an impact on public health.
- CuVerro Kills Drug-Resistant Superbugs.
Infections caused by superbugs like MRSA and E. Coli can be deadly. But they have a natural enemy - copper. One of CuVerro’s greatest strengths is that bacteria cannot develop a resistance to copper, it will continue to kill 99.9% of microbes forever. A healthcare environment with CuVerro copper will inhibit superbug bacteria from growing, and reduce the chance of transferring infection-causing bacteria among patients and staff. When cleaned properly, surfaces made from CuVerro antimicrobial copper kill over 99.9% of these superbugs, 24/7, and keep killing them continuously between cleanings.
- Responsibly Sourced and Recyclable.
CuVerro is made from up to 100% recycled copper and is 100% recyclable so it can be a great addition to your sustainability program and help your organization secure LEED Certification. Further, CuVerro can help meet the new WELL building certification program requirements, fulfilling a WELL-certification requirement that the surfaces are “abrasion-resistant, non-leaching and meet EPA testing requirements for antimicrobial activity”.
