The future for copper in the war on diseases from cross infection looks positive.Touch surfaces made from copper could be installed in hospitals, through public amenities that include children’s play areas and airports.
In the home, copper handles are a silent sentinel for people at risk from cross infection and that is good news.
For us this is only part of the story, because copper is truly a most beautiful medium for hardware.
We have been creating ranges for joinery, front doors and passage doors in copper, with several products under development. We have links and can supply ranges by manufacturers in France, the UK, USA and Italy. We are able to develop custom products through our network of bespoke manufacturers.
If there is any aspect of how you or your clients would like to utilise copper, we would be pleased to hear from you as there is nothing we enjoy more than creating beautiful spaces with one of the most amazing raw materials you could hope for in hardware.
