CURRIES Doors and Frames Now Come With MicroShield®

MASON CITY, IA--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) - CURRIES Hollow Metal Doors and Frames, an ASSA ABLOY Group brand and an industry leader, is pleased to announce the availability of MicroShield® antimicrobial technology on all factory finished doors and frames.

Bacterial contamination is an important issue in hygiene-sensitive facilities such as hospitals, clinics, and schools. Safeguarding your building with surfaces that suppress bacteria growth between normal cleaning procedures can be an extra countermeasure in the fight against the spread of germs. MicroShield antimicrobial technology is a silver-based resin that continuously destroys organisms in three ways -- by attacking the cell wall, interrupting metabolism, and preventing reproduction.

CURRIES embeds the antimicrobial properties into the painting process so this durable finish won't rub off. "MicroShield technology gives our customers and end-users another barrier of protection in the fight against the spread of germs and bacteria," says Dean Peterson, Director of Sales Administration. "And with the coating already applied to the prefinished doors when they arrive at the job site, the protection process is seamless to everyone involved."

When combined with the MicroShield offerings from ASSA ABLOY Group hardware brands, CURRIES MicroShield doors and frames will provide any facility with a total door opening antimicrobial solution.
