Innovative Gilmour Academy Ice Arena changes more than 200 fixtures to Hussey Copper's MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper to help protect against bacteria
Date:9/17/2014

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hussey Copper, a leader in copper manufacturing and maker of MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper, announces Gilmour Academy Ice Arena's conversion of more than 200 touch points to the first EPA-registered antimicrobial solid touch surface to help protect against bacteria.  MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper is a reasonably priced surface that kills greater than 99.9% of MRSA, E-coli and other bacteria within 2 hours of exposure.1

Innovative Gilmour Academy prepares children to become independent thinkers, and the school teaches by example. Gilmour Academy Ice Arena converted door handles, door push plates and locker pulls to MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper. Other installations included retrofitting existing surfaces to reduce the cost of purchasing a brand-new component.

MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper delivers continuous and ongoing antibacterial action, remaining effective in killing greater than 99.9% of bacteria within 2 hours and continuing to kill 99% of bacteria* even after repeated contaminations.

"As a parent you want to do all that you can to protect your children from harmful bacteria. It is refreshing to see that Gilmour is taking a step in that direction. Gilmour Academy is a first-class educational institution, and this recent action exemplifies Gilmour's commitment to students, parents, and coaches," said Joe Mallak, CEO of Hussey Copper.

MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper can be easily researched and purchased online at mdcu29.com or on amazon.com.

1Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, antimicrobial copper, like MD-Cu29, kills greater than 99.9% of bacteria* within 2 hours of exposure.
*Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VRE), Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Escherichia coli O157:H7.
Antimicrobial copper surfaces, made with materials such as MD-Cu29, are a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices and have been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but do not necessarily prevent cross contamination; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices.
