Contego Antimicrobial Copper

Created from a unique copper alloy, the Contego range of ironmongery from Allgood provides the antimicrobial properties integral to copper but with the appearance of stainless steel.

Antimicrobial copper is the most effective touch surface material in the fight against pathogenic microbes, killing greater than 99.9% of bacteria that cause healthcare-associated infections within 2 hours of contact. No other material such as silver-coatings comes close.

Clinical trials in a variety of hospital wards around the world have shown a continuous reduction in bacteria of greater than 80% on copper surfaces compared with non-copper equivalents. A multi-centre trial in US hospitals further showed that replacing just six touch surfaces in an Intensive Care Unit room with antimicrobial copper items reduced a patient’s risk of acquiring an infection by 58%.

Contego uses a copper alloy approved under the Cu+ scheme established by the International Copper Association.
