Yale has partnered with antimicrobial additives provider BioCote to launch the Quartus combi door handle range with a coating that will reduce up to 99.99% of surface microbes such as bacteria and fungus.

The Quartus door handle is manufactured in stainless steel exterior as standard on metallic finishes and zinc based on powder coated finishes and comes with a 25 year guarantee on all finishes.

Sales and commercial director Paul Atkinson said: “Our Quartus door handles are the first and last thing people touch as they enter and leave their homes, and we are able to give consumers the peace of mind that their door handle complements their own hygiene practices.”

David Hall, managing director of BioCote, added: “With the Quartus combi door handle range carrying the BioCote trademark, fabricators and installers can rest assured that Yale security products achieve the superior antimicrobial performance customers have come to expect from our integrated technology.”
