With evidence that COVID-19 can be transmitted between surfaces for up to 72 hours, and one report concluding that it can survive on door handles for up to NINE DAYS, Purehold has a solution – its range of self-sanitising door handles, available Australia-wide from Richard Jay.
Scientists in the UK have concluded that the rapid spread of COVID-19 is partly due to its ability to live on door handles for up to nine days.
UK Chief Medical Officer Professor Chris Whitty explained that people can contract COVID-19 by touching contaminated surfaces and then touching their face.
He added that coronavirus may remain contagious on hard metal or plastic surfaces such as door handles for at least 72 hours, with other scientific research showing it can survive on door handles for up to nine days.
Door handles that disinfect after every use
As Australia braces for flu season while remaining vigilant about COVID-19, Richard Jay is proud to offer the full range of award-winning Purehold antibacterial door handles to our clients in healthcare, aged care, government, manufacturing and hospitality.
Door handles are a common source of cross-contamination in places where groups of people congregate – particularly those with compromised or developing immune systems.
Examples include hospitals, medical centres, aged care homes, schools and childcare centres. Large office blocks, universities, factories and public institutions will also benefit from more hygienic entry and exit points, especially during cold and flu season.
Purehold door handle solutions use silver ion technology and highly effective hand sanitiser to kill 99.9% of bacteria, including E-coli, salmonella, streptococcus, staphylococcus and campylobacter.
Exclusive to Richard Jay, the Purehold range includes:
- Purehold PRO – a gel dispensing door handle that sanitises users’ hands with highly effective gel.
- Purehold PULL – a self-cleaning door handle cover for pull handles that uses silver ions to kill bacteria and viruses.
- Purehold PUSH – a self-cleaning push plate for push mechanism doors that uses the same silver ion technology as the Purehold PULL.
- NEW Purehold LEVER – a self-cleaning door handle cover for lever-style door handles.
