No hope for bacteria

Glutz fittings with antibacterial powder lacquer coating are hygienic and stay hygienic!

A study shows that resistant bacteria tend to be propa-gated particularly often in big hospitals where many patients are present in the wards. These organisms are dangerous because they are immune to antibiotics. They cause wounds, illnesses and can even be fatal.
Unfailing hygiene is therefore imperative. The same invisible risk is also encountered in other every day situations. Door fittings in particular are frequently
touched by many different people. Bacteria and germs are therefore liable to accumulate here.

With a Glutz permanent anti-bacterial powder lacquer coating, fittings are permanently protected against all kinds of microbes. The active substance is incorporated into the powder lacquer and cannot escape from the surface. The lacquer is largely colourless and so gives almost invisible protection against undesirable bacteria.
