Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies announced that Schlage levers and locks, Von Duprin exit and panic devices, Glynn-Johnson push/pull levers and Ives door accessories are now available with an optional antimicrobial coating that inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew on their surfaces. The antimicrobial clear coat is a durable BHMA-compliant coating that provides long-lasting protection to the door hardware and enhances its appearance. The coating utilizes ionic silver (AG+), a single atom that is missing one orbital electron. The natural antimicrobial interacts with bonding sites on the microbe surface, slowing the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew. High-traffic, public-use buildings, such as healthcare, education and food service, are good applications for antimicrobial-coated door hardware.  Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies
