Axiene hygienic door handles offer improved protection

A Glasgow-based company is producing a pioneering hygienic door handle that eliminates bugs within seconds reducing the cross-transmission of infectious bacteria and viruses.

The Axiene VH01 Clean Touch system developed by Glana is designed to kill more than 99.999 per cent of bacteria and is effective against viruses, providing continuous active disinfection on the handle touch surface using a bespoke and certified fluid.

Axiene VH01 is based on a standard pull-handle form and size and without any need for power or other connections, the product is straightforward to fit and can replace existing pull handles and as it requires only simple maintenance, this can easily be carried out by existing staff.

Independent lab analysis verifies that Axiene provides broad spectrum protection against harmful germs and viruses like E-coli, ENT, MRSA and other pathogens such as coronaviruses.

Lab results show that the Axiene touch surface continually achieves a surface cleanliness that hugely exceeds the requirements quoted in international standards for healthcare sectors and making Axiene ideal for common use buildings such as care homes.

“When someone touches the Axiene handle, they’re touching a continually disinfected and safer surface as the fluid kills any bugs within seconds and keeps the handle protected for both you and the next person,” said Ian Graham, founder and managing director of Glana.

“This means that you’re not leaving your bugs or picking up bugs from the person before you which helps prevent infection spread,” he added.

Glana is talking to customers and end users to explain the benefits of the Axiene product and the improvements in user well-being that Axiene offers.

One of the interested users for the new Axiene product is the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, currently carrying out a demonstration trial to showcase the product and help reduce infection risks.

“Glana is looking forward to working with healthcare, education and commercial sectors to help support businesses and institutions fight infection and safely resume operations,” said Graham.
