Stanley Security Solutions Inc. has released its UltraShield antimicrobial protected door hardware for commercial use. The UltraShield finish inhibits the growth of bacteria and other microbes on the surface of the hardware.
Partnering with Agion Technologies, an antimicrobial technology company, the UltraShield utilizes the Agion antimicrobial agent carried through a cradle to cradle third-party certification as an environmentally friendly product.
The UltraShield protected coating incorporates a naturally occurring silver-ion exchange creating a sanitary surface. In doing so, the microbe food and oxygen supplies are eliminated, effectively producing long-lasting product protection. The silver-ion exchange occurs only on demand when destructive microbes are present.
The UltraShield silver ions attack multiple targets in the microbe to prevent it from growing to a destructive population. This action fights cell growth in three ways:
- Prevents respiration by inhibiting transport functions in the cell wall
- Inhibits cell division (reproduction)
- Disrupts cell metabolism
Available in two finishes, 630AM Satin Stainless Steel and 626AM Satin Chrome, the UltraShield protection is available to Stanley Security Solutions Precision Hardware Apex 2000 exit device and BEST Lock 8K, 9K, 40H, 7T and 8T series of products.
