Stainless Steel Casework to Hospitals, Morgues, Labs, and Surgery Rooms in Providence
Stainless Steel Casework helps maintain the best possible cleanliness standards because it is non-porous, which means that germs, viruses, and bacteria cannot get into the furniture. Stainless Steel can stand up to being sanitized frequently and doesn’t retain moisture. Also, adding an Antimicrobial Agion Coating on Stainless Steel Casework helps reduce the bacteria impact on the cabinets and work surfaces. We provide Stainless Steel Casework to hospitals, morgues, labs and surgery rooms in Providence, Warwick, Cranston, and throughout the state of Rhode Island.
Adding an Antimicrobial Agion Coating to Reduce Bacteria and Germs
Agion is a silver impregnated compound in paint that is used as an antimicrobial topcoat to prevent the spread of bacteria and germs. 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. 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 Stainless Steel Casework Improves Indoor Air Quality and Limits Off Gassing
Agion powder coating is accomplished by spraying electro-statically charged particles of resin onto steel cabinet components. Each individual component/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 Antimicrobial Agion Stainless Steel Casework limits 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.
