By using a copper nickel alloy, you get the look of an Oasis traditional stainless steel water fountain while receiving the benefits of our MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper.
(These fountains are located at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world’s busiest airport)
Public spaces could provide ideal conditions for spreading infectious bacteria
With MRSA and other infectious bacteria1, exposure could take place not only in hospitals but in other public settings and even in private homes as well. Often these deadly bacteria1 pass from hand to hand via “touch surfaces” — objects like door handles, push plates, equipment, switches, railings, counters, and plumbing fixtures.
But now Hussey Copper introduces MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper solid-surface products. Laboratory testing has shown that when cleaned regularly, products made from MD-Cu29 antimicrobial copper kills greater than 99.9% of bacteria1 within two hours and continues to kill 99% of bacteria1 even after repeated contaminations.
For nearly 170 years, Hussey Copper has been a leader in innovative solutions for the evolving needs of industry, technology, and society. And as an integrated manufacturer, Hussey Copper has a cost advantage like no other. Today you can rely on us for the new generation of expertise, materials, and products that you will need for all of your touch surfaces.

1Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, antimicrobial copper kills greater than 99.9% of the following bacteria within 2 hours of exposure: Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VRE), Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Escherichia coli O157:H7. Antimicrobial copper surfaces are a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices and have been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but do not necessarily prevent cross contamination; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices.
