Healthy Metal Modular Millwork and Stainless Steel Casework Cabinets For Medical Facilities in Birmingham and Montgomery
Do you remember a study that made the rounds a few years ago about how the average desk hosts about 400 times the number of germs as a toilet seat? It is certainly true that work surfaces which are touched over and over can accumulate a layer of dirt and oils that attract and nurture bacteria. Add in the particularly nasty strains of germs that are present in a typical hospital setting and you start to realize how critical it is to maintain the best hygiene standards possible. Nosocomial (hospital acquired) infections are far too common among patients today. Healthcare workers are also at high risk for being contaminated with bacteria that leads to illness from cabinets and work surfaces. Now, there’s a “silver bullet” to help reduce the bacteria impact on medical casework cabinets and work surfaces – Agion Coated Metal Modular Millwork and Stainless Steel Casework Cabinets. We provide these healthy modular millwork and casework cabinet solutions to businesses in Birmingham, Montgomery, Huntsville, Tuscaloosa, Mobile, and throughout the state of Alabama.
Agion Anti-Microbial Coating Reduces Bacteria And Germs on Metal Modular Millwork and Stainless Steel Casework Cabinets
Agion is a silver impregnated compound in paint that is used as an antimicrobial topcoat to prevent the spread of bacteria and germs. Very few people use silver in their powder coat, which makes the Agion coating unique. Before the development of antibiotics, silver was used in sulfa drugs to keep wounds from getting infected. Today, since so many strains of bacteria (like MRSA) are resistant to antibiotics, we’re back to using silver to help prevent against bacterial growth for day-to-day situations. Contact with Agion coated surfaces is safe for humans but deadly for bacteria and mold. Metal modular millwork and stainless steel casework cabinets treated with Agion germ fighting products keep battling microbes year after year. This isn’t a substitute for having hospital workers wash their hands or for decontaminating commonly touched casework cabinets and work surfaces, but it’s a good backup system.
Agion Coated Modular Millwork and Casework Cabinets Improves Indoor Air Quality And Limits Off Gassing
Agion powder coating is accomplished by spraying electro-statically charged particles of resin onto a steel cabinet component. Then the cabinet is assembled using a unique rivet construction similar to the process used in building airplanes. Rivet construction provides flexibility to change cabinet components and ensures all edges of every panel are coated with paint. Each individual cabinet is baked at a high temperature so the Agion powder coating bonds directly to the cabinet’s metal. This means there aren’t any loose particles wafting around in the air after the powder coating is cured. Electro-static Agion Anti-Microbial metal modular millwork and stainless steel casework cabinets limit off gassing of VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) keeping your building’s indoor air quality high. Particularly nasty VOCs like formaldehyde are commonly used in a variety of casework and millwork furniture finishes. These substances are considered carcinogenic and can also cause acute symptoms such as headaches, nausea, and breathing difficulty in sensitive individuals. That’s especially important in a hospital or long-term health care facility where patients with breathing problems like chronic bronchitis or emphysema need the cleanest air possible.
