EVERYONE MILLWORK PULLS COPPER SELECTION

 

EVERYONE MILLWORK PULLS FROM PBA HAVE BECOME A GO-TO SOLUTION FOR INTERIORS PROFESSIONALS AND CABINETMAKERS SINCE THEIR 2018 INTRODUCTION. ORIGINALLY OFFERED AND STILL AVAILABLE IN TOP-GRADE STAINLESS STEEL, THEY MEET THE ADA ACCESSIBILITY REQUIREMENTS AND SUPPORT INCLUSION BEAUTIFULLY.

NOW OUR PULLS ARE BETTER THAN EVER WITH A BRAND NEW OPTION: COPPER PLATING, WHERE AN ALLOY CONSISTING OF 97% PURE COPPER IS APPLIED WITHOUT COATING TO A STEEL CORE TO CREATE AN EPA REGISTEREDALWAYS-ON, ANTIMICROBIAL DEFENSE AGAINST A RANGE OF PATHOGENS INCLUDING MRSA, S. AUREUS (A.K.A. STAPH), AND E. COLI. 

IN FEBRUARY 2008, THE U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY (EPA) APPROVED THE REGISTRATION OF 275 ANTIMICROBIAL COPPER ALLOYS. BY APRIL 2011, THAT NUMBER EXPANDED TO 355. THIS PERMITS PUBLIC HEALTH CLAIMS THAT COPPER IS CAPABLE OF KILLING HARMFUL, POTENTIALLY DEADLY BACTERIA. COPPER IS AMONG THE FIRST MATERIALS TO BE EPA REGISTERED AND SUPPORTED BY EXTENSIVE ANTIMICROBIAL EFFICACY TESTING.

THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE RECENTLY REPORTED THAT COPPER, WHEN COMPARED TO OTHER MATERIALS INCLUDING PLASTIC AND STAINLESS STEEL, IS ALSO DRAMATICALLY LESS HOSPITABLE TO VIRUS. WITH ALL THIS AND GOOD LOOKS, TOO, PBA COPPER MILLWORK PULLS CAN BE PART OF A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR A CLEANER, MORE HYGIENIC ENVIRONMENT—AND ESPECIALLY RELEVANT IN HIGH-TOUCH, MULTI-OCCUPANT SPACES SUCH AS KITCHENS, PANTRIES, MEETING ROOMS, AND HOTEL GUEST ROOMS.

NOTE: ALL PRODUCTS COMPLY WITH THE ADA AND SIMILAR ACCESSIBILITY REQUIREMENTS, HOWEVER FINAL INTERPRETATION OF ACCESSIBILITY COMPLIANCE IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE SPECIFIER AND SHOULD BE DETERMINED ACCORDING TO SPECIFIC PROJECT CONDITIONS AND LOCAL CODES.
