Teck and the Royal Ontario Museum have partnered up to highlight the benefits of copper, to build awareness, and to enhance public safety by installing antimicrobial copper onto high-touch surfaces in the museum. ROM is the first museum in Canada to utilize CuVerro Shield™ by Aereus Technologies in order to continuously kill bacteria and create a safer environment for staff and visitors.
Through its Copper & Health program, Teck has donated $500,000 to ROM which is being used, in part, to outfit high-traffic areas with antimicrobial copper surfaces known as CuVerro Shield™ by Aereus Technologies. This installation will cover door handles, washroom stall latches and other high-touch surfaces to provide an added layer of protection to ensure the health and safety of all those who visit this landmark institution.
