Copper taps aid battle against cross infection

Pegler Yorkshire has developed a range of taps for the healthcare sector aimed at avoiding cross-infection. They are made using antimicrobial copper and carry the Antimicrobial Copper Cu+ Mark, which signifies that they are capable of continuously killing pathogenic microbes — even in between cleans.

Antimicrobial copper surfaces are the most effective touch surface, ideal for the healthcare environment, where their inherent continuous ability to kill bacteria will supplement infection-control measures.’
