How does copper help Trimco’s Healthy Hardware™ work?
Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI) number over 103,000 cases per year nationally. Combined with home and school acquired infections the total rises to over 2 million every year causing lost work days and absenteeism. The cost of treatment of those occurrences is estimated between $35 and $45 billion dollars annually and is rising. EPA tests conducted using Good Laboratory Practices demonstrate the effectiveness of copper alloys against bacteria* that cause infection. Trimco is a pioneer and innovator in copper door hardware with the Healthy Hardware® line of door trim and engineered products.
