Overview of trials and feedback from care homes and Skypark offices
To prove that users like the concept and the benefits of the Axiene product, trials have been completed in a number of facilities such as care homes and offices, where the installed handle has been subject to heavy-duty use and independent microbiological assessment on completion of the trial period. Noting the standard dimensions for the handle, the test unit can be fitted easily and the original handle restored after the trial. The microbiological assessments confirmed the lab tests and verified that the handle surface remains in a clean and safe state for users. Survey of users was also completed with clear feedback that the handle would be preferred, recommended and easily accepted in common use doorways, etc.
