Purehold Anti-Bacterial Door Lever Cover


SKU: CAR-PH-LV Category:


The Purehold Anti-Bacterial Door Lever Cover is a self-cleaning, antimicrobial door handle cover, that effortlessly “clips” onto your existing lever handle and has been proven to kill Coronavirus, Vaccinia Virus and the H1N1 virus.

Using silver technology, the coating combats pathogens deposited onto the surface by users and then works continuously, 24/7. Aimed at reducing cross-contamination from one user to the next, the Purehold LEVER is easily installed onto door handles by simply “snapping” into place in under 30 seconds. It’s perfect for all lever handle doors!

There is both a Straight and RTD design available to fit most most lever door handles.

Each door handle cover provides protection against germs for up to six months and has a special indicator installed which will turn red when it needs to be replaced.

How It Works

  1. Microbes are deposited onto the door handle by users.
  2. Silver ions (Ag) penetrate the cell membrane of the microbe.
  3. The ions suffocate the microbe and attack it’s DNA to prevent reproduction.

Common microbes found on door furniture include E-coli, Salmonella, Camplylobacteur and Staph Aureus.
