BA Systems offer Vetobac® VBA99 Antimicrobial Metal on three of their handrail sysems (B10, B20, B40). It's also used for the head of the Elite Sanitiser Stand system.
VBA99 Antimicrobial Metal kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses and is set to be the new standard for hygienic metal surfaces.
Recent virus outbreaks have changed the public perception of touch surfaces, not only in health care environments, but in every area used frequently by the public.
We felt compelled to do more to help and so we developed Vetobac®, a specially formulated copper metal alloy which works 24/7, between touches and cleaning sessions to rapidly kill the pathogens.
- Kills Covid-19 in minutes
Independent lab testing by the University of Southampton has proven VBA99 to kill 95% of Covid-19 within 10 minutes of contamination. In addition, superbugs such as MRSA and E-Coli and Norovirus are also effectively and rapidly killed by contact with VBA99.
- Lifetime Protection - No Coating
Unlike plated or coated finishes VBA99 is a copper-based metal material. There’s no surface coating to wear-off, so even vigorous cleaning doesn’t compromise effectiveness.
- Tarnish Free Copper Blend
VBA99 maintains its pristine finish and does not oxidise or discolour like copper or brass does. The lightly brushed finish coordinates well with stainless steel on non-touch surfaces.
