Say Goodbye to Uncertainty

Door handles are high-contact surfaces, especially in supermarket, grocery, and convenience stores. Do you worry whether others have touched door handles before you, leaving disease-causing bacteria behind? Even though retailers have valiantly increased their cleaning protocols, they cannot disinfect every surface after each use.

Zero Zone cares about our retail partners and their shoppers, so our team has developed 2 solutions. Say goodbye to uncertainty and say hello to the Copper Ally™ door handle and the ArmAssist™ door opener, both proudly made in the USA.

Copper Ally™: The Only Handle that Cleans Itself 24/7/365 Forever

The Copper Ally™ door handle does more than open doors. Copper itself is antimicrobial in nature, with tests proving that antimicrobial copper kills 99% of bacteria within 2 hours of exposure.* The handle is naturally invincible, always at work in the aisles of refrigerated and frozen food products.

When the planning for an antimicrobial door handle began, Zero Zone reached out to an expert in manufacturing handles for hospitals. The handle we decided upon is made from EPA-registered copper alloys and certified to contain 94% recycled materials. If this handle is good enough for the ICU, it is certainly good enough for shoppers. The Copper Ally™ door handle: developed for hospitals, and now available for your supermarket, grocery, or convenience store.

Both handle styles—the Copper Ally™ 90 and the Copper Ally™ 128— are always at work, forever maintaining 100% of their antimicrobial properties, giving you and your shoppers peace of mind for years to come. No amount of time, or even tarnish, will make these handles lose their effectiveness in the fight against harmful pathogens.

The Copper Ally™ door handle comes in a soft champagne color that complements any display case and store décor. Because the Copper Ally™ door handle is self-cleaning, you don’t have to clean it for it to be effective, but you may want to clean residue and sticky messes from the surface using soapy water or a non-abrasive glass cleaner. Any tarnish that may appear over time can be removed with the Bar Keepers Friend® Soft Cleanser followed by a wipe down with glass cleaner.

The Copper Ally™ Door Handle: Always on Your Side.

ArmAssist™: The Hands-Free Door Handle Accessory

The patent pending ArmAssist™ from Zero Zone is a lever that attaches to door handles to help shoppers open the door with their arm instead of their hand. Shoppers use their forearm to pull open the door, which eliminates the need for hand-to-handle contact. Your shoppers will appreciate this proven, hands-free alternative, which gives them peace of mind as they stock up on refrigerated and frozen food products.

Zero Zone joined forces with Sciessent to implement their Agion® Antimicrobial silver ion technology** into our ArmAssist™. The antimicrobial treatment is added to the plastic of the ArmAssist™ during the manufacturing process. Both Zero Zone and Sciessent are proud to serve our retail heroes and their shoppers.

The patent pending ArmAssist™ is manufactured and sourced in the USA with recyclable materials and designed to fit a wide variety of handles, including:

Zero Zone CoolArc™

Zero Zone Classic

Zero Zone Crescent™

Anthony Soft-touch

*Testing demonstrates effective antibacterial activity against: Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VRE), Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli O157:H. The use of antimicrobial copper surfaces is a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices, including those practices related to cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces. Antimicrobial copper surfaces have been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but do not necessarily prevent cross-contamination.
