Q: How does Copper Mesh Work?

When bacteria come into contact with copper ions a process begins to kill the bacteria. On metallic copper surfaces, bacteria, yeasts, and viruses are rapidly killed. The term “contact killing” has been coined for this process. This is due to the potential use of copper as an antibacterial material in health care settings. 

As stated by the US National Library of Medicine, "The antimicrobial activity of copper and copper alloys is now well established, and copper has recently been registered at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as the first solid antimicrobial material."


Q: Who is Copper Mesh Seating for?

  • A customer-driven client who wants a comfortable mesh back made of environmentally conscious materials.
  • Healthcare institutions, where it is perhaps the most important application to prevent transmission of harmful bacteria, viruses, and/or fungi.
