How we can help:
In the U.S 2,000,000 people acquire infections in hospitals each year resulting in nearly 100,000 deaths. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates the direct cost of these infections at between $35 and $45 billion annually. These infections are caused by bacteria that thrive on objects we touch every day.
CuSalus® manufactures products made with CuVerro® Antimicrobial Copper Alloys that kill bacteria such as Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, E. coli, Pseudomonas, Klebsiella, Vancomy- cin-resistant Enterococci and regular staph. We are here to make every room outfitted with our hardware a bit safer. That includes hospitals, retirement homes, hotels, cruise ships, event spaces, retail stores, restaurants and your home. Any hardware surface where bacteria* lurks, CuSalus products will kill it.
At CuSalus® we work closely with designers and architects to craft products that complement the envisioned environment. CuSalus offers more than 200 product designs and we also custom manufacture bacteria-killing hardware according to the designs created by innovative architects and designers. We are proud to help in the battle against infection always complimenting the de- sign team’s desired vision.
