At Ceildoor, our air-tight access panels come with a silver ion, anti-bacterial coating as standard. But why do we use silver ion?

Silver ion has been used for thousands of years to prevent the growth of bacteria without the high toxicity associated with other metals. Silver ion is an antimicrobial agent which inhibits the ability of microorganisms to grow. To achieve this, a silver ion infused powder coating is applied to all surfaces of our air-tight access panel in order to make them anti-bacterial and suitable for environments such as hospital clean rooms, operating theatres and catering establishments.

Our long-lasting, silver ion infused powder coating is proven to actively reduce bacterial growth by disrupting the bacteria’s cellular function and therefore its ability to survive. It does this without being harmful to humans, or affecting the aesthetics or performance of the access panel. Our panels have been independently tested, and the results demonstrated that bacteria levels of E-Coli and MRSA were reduced to below the limit of detection within 24 hours.
