CleanTech Antimicrobial Hardware

Berenson has launched two hardware collections that off antimicrobial protection.

“Unlike other antimicrobial hardware products available on the market, which only inhibit the growth process of harmful bacteria, Berenson CleanTech Antimicrobial Hardware kills bacteria,” said Lorne Smith, president of Berenson Hardware.

The CleanTech series combines stylish hardware designs with Organo-functional silane antimicrobial technology. An added benefit of the CleanTech series is protection for consumers from allergies to chrome or nickel.

These special pieces of hardware have a wear layer that lets the home owner know when the anti-microbial protection has worn off. Red coloring will start to show through the polished chrome, satin nickel, or brushed nickel finish on the hardware when it is time to be replaced.

The Commence and Sektor (shown below) are available now and next month 5 new collections will be introduced in partnership with the Susan G. Komen Foundation. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Komen for the Cure so keep on the look out for this news.
