Our door handles and our products in CUA1 Copper
Mercure Décoration has developed door handles made of raw CUA1 copper. The CUA1 copper present in our door handle has great anti-viral and anti-bacterial power. Indeed, the Cu2 + and Cu3 + ions present on the surface of our product interact with the bacterial and viral membranes. This interaction causes oxidative stress and ultimately the destruction of bacteria and virions. Our doorknob is also effective against most single cell parasites and fungi.
Today, 80% of infections are transmitted through the hands, one of the main vectors of these hand transmissions are doorknobs. An October 2020 poll found that only 77% of French people routinely washed their hands after using the toilet and only 37% after blowing their nose. Our Athena door handles limit the risk of manual transmission of pathogens.
Our CUA1 copper products are effective against the Covid-19 virus, Helicobacter Pylori, Clostridium difficile and many bacterial and viral strains. It is perfectly suited to establishments open to the public such as schools, hospitals as well as retirement homes and companies wishing to protect their employees and customers.
In hospitals, the presence of copper in the immediate environment of patients makes it possible to limit the rate of nosocomial diseases by 40%. By limiting these illnesses, copper helps relieve hospitals of many days of busy beds and extra work for caregivers. CUA1 copper helps prevent unnecessary suffering and death of patients. It can also be used in retirement homes to protect vulnerable people from avoidable risk.
