Case Studies

Schools and public buildings

Arsakion School is among the oldest and most prestigious private schools in Greece, educating over 12,000 students from various sites in Athens. After the school’s management were approached by the Hellenic Copper Development Institute about the antimicrobial properties of copper, they opted to install antimicrobial copper touch surfaces at three schools.

Medical and healthcare

During the renovation of a specialist Adult Rehabilitation Unit at the hospital, Antimicrobial Copper door furniture was installed throughout. The products chosen were from Allgood's Contego range of Antimicrobial Copper door furniture, made from an alloy visually indistinguishable from stainless steel, providing an unobtrusive additional infection prevention measure.

Infectious diseases are spread through person-to-person contact – more frequently through the hands than by any other method. While handwashing is the best line of defence against infection, it can be challenging to manage in public places. Antimicrobial copper handrails provided a hygienic and aesthetically pleasing solution to help tackle this problem on the Santiago metro.
