Statistics show that germs and bacteria are amongst the most common causes of disease. They live and proliferate on the most commonly used surfaces and are increasingly resistant to antibiotic treatment. Clinics, schools, nurseries and other public places are where handles are used the most, often by at-risk individuals such as children or elderly people. Bacteria and germs can settle and spread quickly over handles in these places, with the potential to cause serious illnesses.

In order to produce handles that are safe to use in every environment, Tyman International employs the latest antibacterial technologies and a dedicated chemical team. This concerted effort has led Tyman International to develop its own trademarked antibacterial treatment, Antigerm™, which works 24/7, requires no maintenance and kills 99.99% of all germs and bacteria.

How does it work? 

The treated handles slowly release silver ions that kill more than 650 germ species in minutes, including Escherichia Coli, Legionella Pneumoniae, Salmonella Enteritidis and more. The ions are absolutely safe for humans, since they only attack germs and bacteria by blocking their reproductive capability.
