Hygienic handrails

SG Systems have further enhanced their Sentinel stainless steel range of handrail and balustrade systems, with the addition of a new handrail coating that has been specifically developed for healthcare and care home environments.

The new hygienic handrails finish incorporates SteriTouch an antimicrobial additive which when added to the handrail coating provides an effective barrier against bacteria and hand borne germs such as MRSA, Ecoli and Salmonella. It is this protection that is becoming increasingly demanded by specifiers and facilities managers working within heavily trafficked areas such as hospitals, care homes, medical centres, doctors and dentists surgeries.

The Strading handrail has relaunched with an antibacterial and antimicrobial coating to create the Strading-hygienic range. The coating provides a passive barrier against bacteria and viruses, thereby reducing the risk of spreading the germs.

Because of the antimicrobial coating, it makes the handrail ideal for any location where removing the risk of cross contamination is important. Places such as care homes, hospitals, schools and surgeries can all benefit from this handrail.

Available in a range of colours, handrails that incorporate the SteriTouch additive or antimicrobial additive are unaffected by cleaning chemicals. An even distribution in the coating process also ensures that the anti microbial performance is not affected by scratches, abrasions and normal wear and tear associated with care environments.
