How Antimicrobial Crash Rail Protects Your Walls And Inhibit Growth of Harmful Microbes

23rd Jun, 2023 by Dennis Chalas

The CRAM-200 series crash rail consists of aluminum rails with an antimicrobial powder coat finish and a center V-groove profile that fastens to the wall with hidden aluminum mounting brackets. The endpoints of each crash rail segment are capped with end plates that fasten to the mounting brackets. The CRAM-200 series crash rail is an effective way to protect your walls from impact and also inhibit the growth and transmission of harmful microbes. If you’re looking for an upgrade, it’s time to consider adding the CRAM-200 series to your facility. 


Why Antimicrobial Powder Coating is Important

An antimicrobial powder coating is an important feature of the CRAM-200 series crash rail because it helps to inhibit the growth of harmful microbes on the surface of the rails.

This is important for two reasons:

  • First, it helps to protect the integrity of the wall

  • Second, it helps to prevent the spread of harmful microbes in healthcare environments. 

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a dry powder to the surface of an object. The powder is then cured under heat to form a hard, durable finish. Powder coating is used in a variety of industries, including the automotive, architectural, and appliance industries. There are two types of powder coating:

Thermoplastic: Such powder coatings can be melted and reformed.

Thermoset: These powder coatings cannot be melted and reformed.

Antimicrobial powder coatings used in antimicrobial crash rails are typically thermoset powders that contain silver ions or other antimicrobial agents. In healthcare environments, antimicrobial powder coatings are commonly used on medical equipment, hospital beds, door handles, light switches, and other surfaces that come into contact with patients or healthcare workers. By inhibiting the growth of harmful microbes on these surfaces, antimicrobial powder coatings help to prevent the spread of infection in hospitals and other healthcare settings.
