Southco, well known for its access hardware, is a licensed Microban® partner. It means that the company can integrate the Microban® antimicrobial additive into many of its most popular access hardware products
Microban® antimicrobial technologies are proven to be effective against bacteria by up to 99%, and are built in to Southco products at the point of manufacture to inhibit the potential growth of microbes that are present in many environments. The technologies become part of the molecular structure of the treated articles and will not wash off or wear away.
With Microban®-protected access hardware solutions from Southco, products remain cleaner between cleanings and reduce bacteria on high-touch applications – even after repeated contamination. As a licensed Microban® manufacturer, Southco can assist customers by integrating antimicrobial technologies into many of its most popular products. Key advantages cited by Southco are benefits of a reduced bacteria count, the fact that high touch surfaces can be kept clean and that customers will therefore gain a distinctive competitive advantage.
Southco says that its Microban® solutions can help protect high-touch access points used in a variety of environments and equipment applications in industries including healthcare, self-service and point of sale, enclosures, industrial machinery, automotive, mass transit, HVAC and aerospace.
“Southco’s partnership with Microban® allows us to provide greater value to our customers, by helping them to reduce bacteria growth on their application touch points,” said Jim Ford, Director, Global Product Management, Southco, Inc. “Like Southco products, Microban® antimicrobial technologies are designed to last the lifetime of the application, matching our commitment to providing premium quality solutions to the markets we serve.”
