Mestre Raposa introduces Antibacterial and Antimicrobial Door and Window Handles in Portugal


With the Covid-19 pandemic, hygiene is a super important issue. And you may have heard that door handles are big germ-carriers.
Using a door handle is like shaking hands with thousands of strangers! We spread the virus in large part with our hands.

Thanks to technology, there are antibacterial and antimicrobial surfaces for door and window handles. So infections and virus transmitted via handles can be effectively stopped. Mestre Raposa’s uses SecuSan® from Hoppe, a German brand.

SecuSan® immediately and permanently suppresses the growth of pathogens on the handle, as confirmed by independent lab and practice tests. And provides active protection against the spread of germs and bacteria.


Let’s see how it works:

  1. High bacterial load on the surface
  2. Silver ions destroy the cell membrane of the germ.
  3. Germ is killed.
  4. There is a significant reduction in the bacterial load on the surface.


SecuSan® surfaces contain silver ions which are embedded in a carrier system of ceramic glass. They form an active part of this material and prevent the growth of germs such as bacteria, algae and fungi. The silver ions destroy the cell membrane of the germ. This stops respiration and nutrition of the cells, so preventing cell division. Independent tests have proved that SecuSan® reduces microbial growth by more than 99%. The SecuSan® surface remains effective even when cleaned at regular intervals.

We used to recommend the antibacterial handles SecuSan® for health related buildings, schools or places with a higher circulation of people like a gym or a hotel. Although, with the current situation we also recommend this option available for private residences.
