“Staying healthy and fit, and killing germs”

MISSISSAUGA - The Ontario Racquet Club (ORC), one of Canada’s largest fitness facilities, is pleased to announce that we are now the first club in North America to integrate CuVerro ShieldTM by Aereus Technologies, an antimicrobial copper surface technology on the high-touch surfaces in our 150,000 square foot facility, located on 8 acres just outside Toronto. The ORC has treated its high-touch surfaces using CuVerro ShieldTM by Aereus Technologies, a unique, cutting-edge technology, using EPA-registered antimicrobial copper that kills dangerous pathogens such as MRSA, E. coli, and other antibiotic resistant bacteria by a staggering 99.99 per cent. This revolutionary technology has now been used to enhance a number of high-touch surfaces at the ORC such as faucets, fitness equipment, toilet seats, push bars and door handles - to name a few.

The use of CuVerro ShieldTM by Aereus Technologies arguably makes the ORC one of the cleanest, most sanitary facilities for racquet sports, exercise, swimming and, of course, socializing for our members, in Canada.

"This agreement once again puts the ORC on the forefront of the Canadian health and hospitality industry," said Ontario Racquet Club CEO, Jeff McCarrol. "Even with the volume of people we see on a daily basis with over 5,500 members, our members can have peace-of-mind knowing we're taking every precaution to help keep them healthier and happy. We believe in the very near future all fitness manufacturers and health clubs should incorporate CuVerro ShieldTM by Aereus Technologies on all cardio, weight lifting equipment, and other high touch surfaces for the betterment of their members.”

“In using CuVerro ShieldTM by Aereus Technologies, the ORC is taking innovative steps to help fight infectious bacteria and make its members’ protection from dangerous pathogens a top priority,” says Angela Woody, Manager of Growth & Business Development at Olin Brass.
