Keep Your Home Free From Bacteria with These Doorknobs Made With Microban Technology

2 min read

To help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends cleaning frequently touched objects and surfaces. This means you should constantly disinfect door knobs and door handles, some of the most touched objects in your home. Well, now you can feel better about keeping your home clean thanks to these doorknobs that protect against bacteria growth.

Kwikset Door Hardware products have a unique coating of built-in antimicrobial protection. Using Microban technology, the coating protects against bacteria growth, which is helpful since germs normally double in number every 20 minutes. According to Kwikset, the technology fights against common bacteria, and the antimicrobial coating lasts for the lifetime of the doorknobs. While Microban coating protects against bacteria growth, the CDC recommends using these cleaning products to fight the spread of COVID-19 in homes.

With more than 30 types of door knobs, levers, and deadbolts currently available, there are plenty of styles to choose from. They also come in different finishes, some of which include satin nickel, venetian bronze, and iron black. With so many styles and finishes to choose from, you won’t have to compromise your interior design aesthetic to incorporate these door handles into your home. A selection of handles are available purchase online at Lowe’s, Home Depot, Wayfair, ACE, Amazon, and other retailers that sell home security products. Customers can also purchase them at select stores. The hardware with Microban protection ranges in price from $10 to $75.

If you’re looking for more options, stay tuned. Later this year, Kwikset will release new knobs, levers, deadbolts, keyless entry, and smart lock lines.
