Anti-viral hardware aims to stop the spread of viruses

UAP has launched its Armasmart anti-viral hardware through its newly-established division Armadillo Metal Coatings.

The Armasmart hardware coating is the first on the market to eliminate 99.98% of viruses, including COVID-19. This is achieved through a patent-pending coating technology that prevents harmful bacteria from accumulating on stainless steel surfaces.

Armadillo Metal Coatings will work with – and across – various environments, and health and safety in settings ranging from healthcare facilities to private homes.

In conjunction with these two launches, the ‘Stop the spread’ campaign addresses a critical need for improved infection control. According to a WHO report, seven out of every 100 patients in acute-care hospitals, in high-income countries, acquire at least one healthcare-associated infection, with a significant percentage resulting in fatalities. 

The Armasmart product line includes pull handles, push plates, door closers, kick plates, signage, bathroom turns, escutcheons, hinges and lever handles, plus bespoke products that can provide flexible solutions for door manufacturers and their clients.

One of the standout features of Armasmart hardware is its self-sanitising properties; reducing the need for frequent cleaning and the use of harsh chemicals, streamlining maintenance efforts and promoting a healthier environment.

The specialised coating on Armasmart products offers exceptional resistance to corrosion and tarnishing. This ensures a longer lifespan for the hardware, maintaining its aesthetic appeal and functionality over time; providing a cost-effective solution for maintaining hygiene. This is particularly beneficial in settings where door hardware is subject to frequent use and exposure to harsh cleaning agents.

UAP’s investment in Armasmart signifies a strategic move to lead the market with products that not only meet but exceed the evolving demands for health and safety.
