Decorative bathroom accessories manufacturer Great Grabz has been added to the roster of manufacturers who have joined the Saniguard® Alliance.

The Saniguard Alliance is a partnership of independent companies committed to the use ofSaniguard, an inorganic, silver-based antimicrobial treatment that is built into their plumbing and hardware products for the healthcare market. The treatment actively inhibits the growth of a broad spectrum of common bacteria, molds and fungi that cause odors, staining and product deterioration.

The Alliance was first introduced in June at the Association for Professionals in Infection Control & Epidemiology Conference (APIC) in Denver with the announcement of Sloan Valve Co., McGuire Mfg. Co., Leonard Valve Co. and Townsteel as the first committed Alliance partners.

Great Grabz will use Saniguard on its ADA-compliant grab bars, towel bars and toilet paper holders.
