Beat the common cold with SecuSan® handles from HOPPE

They’re suddenly out again in force: People sneezing and carrying tissues. The cold virus season is here! While there is a lot of general information on how to avoid catching cold viruses, boosting the immune system is usually top of the list. But what should we do if, despite taking all the precautions, we still catch a nasty cold? Then it is particularly important that no other bacterial infection is added to the harmless cold. Because if the body is already under attack by a cold, then certain bacteria, which can cause sinusitis or pneumonia, for example, can easily take hold. Accurate hygiene is then more important than ever – on the one hand to protect yourself from these bacteria and, on the other, to avoid passing it on to people around you.

Avoid infection via hands

In order to protect us and our fellow human beings from further infection, the following also applies if you have a cold: Wash your hands, wash them, and wash them again! Especially when we run the risk of passing on our cold, namely after wiping our nose and sneezing. But also after spending time where experience shows that the risk of bacterial infection is high: On public transport, in medical practices, shops or open-plan offices.

Very few people are aware that they could be ‘shaking hands’ with a large number of unknown people via a door handle – with all the germs and pathogens. To avoid this, you should take advantage of a really clever concept: Antibacterial and antimicrobial SecuSan® door handles from HOPPE!

SecuSan® stops germs on the door handle

SecuSan® stops germs on the door handle

SecuSan® handles do not differ visually from other “normal” handles on the door, but thanks to a special finish containing silver ions, they can effectively stop the growth of microbes – i.e. bacteria, fungi or algae – on the handle. Within a very short time, the germ dies – and the pathogen is prevented from transferring to the next user. Whether in the office, at home or at school: SecuSan® door handles eliminate an extremely common transmission route for bacteria.
