HEWI active + is a range of products with antimicrobial effect. According to the study “Patient safety – what matters for patients”, the risk of infection with multi-resistant germs is the greatest concern of patients in hospitals.

HEWI has developed products with an antimicrobial effect, especially for areas with the highest hygiene requirements. The products offer effective protection against bacterial contamination. Microsilver is used, which has a broad effectiveness against bacteria and fungi. This releases silver ions which inhibit the growth of bacteria and other undesirable germs and thus minimise the risk of infection for humans.

Within 24 hours, a continuous reduction of undesirable germs on the surface of the products takes place, so that 99.9% of germs are reduced within this period. The integrated antimicrobial protection of HEWI active+ effectively supports hygiene. The microsilver is evenly incorporated into the polyamide during production. The additive is thus firmly attached to the product and is therefore insensitive to UV light and cleaning processes.

Due to the porous surface of the microsilver, the material used has an excellent depot effect which has a permanent, reliable effect after incorporation into the polyamide. HEWI active+ does not burden the environment or the human organism. The active ingredient is ECO CERT certified and suitable for use in skin care products.

A comprehensive range of lever handles, sanitary accessories and care products is available in the classic round tube design in the colour signal white.
