T&S Offers Newly Updated Antimicrobial Faucet Handles for Improved Hygiene

TRAVELERS REST, S.C. – July 20, 2020 – T&S Brass and Bronze Works, leading manufacturer of innovative commercial plumbing products, is proud to offer an array of hygiene-boosting solutions for all kinds of facilities, including an update to its antimicrobial-coated faucet handles. 

The antimicrobial coating, available as an option on freshly redesigned wrist-action, four-arm and lever handles, provides a barrier against microorganisms like bacteria, molds, mildew and fungi. The coating creates an environment where these microbes lose their ability to grow and flourish.

Laboratory tests have shown that antimicrobial-coated metal harbors almost no bacteria 24 hours after application, whereas nontreated metal demonstrates significant bacterial growth in the same period. 

Particularly in sensitive and high-traffic environments, antimicrobial coatings provide a valuable boost to the critical disease- and contagion-fighting work of proper hand washing and hygiene. 

The antimicrobial coating on T&S faucet handles is a clear finish that is fingerprint-resistant and lasts the life of the product.
