Just Manufacturing has expanded its healthcare products line with the addition of sinks, hand wash stations and fixtures made with CuVerro Antimicrobial Copper Surfaces.

CuVerro Antimicrobial Copper Nickel surfaces are attractive, safe to use and never wear or wash away. Copper is the only active, bacteria-killing ingredient in CuVerro alloys. EPA-registered CuVerro surfaces begin killing pathogens on contact killing 99.9 percent within two hours, and keeps on killing 24/7.

Just Manufacturing healthcare products made with CuVerro Antimicrobial Copper Surfaces include: healthcare fixtures, scrub sinks, sinks and nurse’s hand wash stations.
