CuVerro Antimicrobial Copper: Cleaner Sports Facilities. Less Germs. Helps Keep Athletes Healthy

Bellarmine University, a perennial contender in NCAA athletics, knows healthier student athletes achieve more both on the field and off it. The University partnered with CuVerro® antimicrobial copper to promote greater hygiene and fight the spread of bacteria in their sports facilities.

CuVerro, the first class of EPA-registered copper alloy, continuously kills infectious bacteria including MRSA and drug resistant superbugs. Unlike stainless steel and silver-based coatings, CuVerro destroys bacteria between routine cleaning and never loses its bacteria-killing properties. It’s an exciting new tool for creating touch surfaces and fixtures that combat the spread of germs in public spaces

The Bradford T. Ray Sports Performance Center now features CuVerro-based amenities that help student athletes train hard and keep them safer from infectious agents. Director of Athletics Scott Wiegandt reaffirmed Bellarmine’s commitment to cleaner facilities and safer student athletes:

“Our student-athletes’ health is obviously our primary concern and this is well worth the investment. [CuVerro] is a sixth man in our effort to help provide for the health of our student-athletes.” 

Bellarmine and its partners used CuVerro to create weight training equipment, railings, light switches, door & cabinet pulls, sinks, drains, and faucet handles that continuously kill 99.9% of infectious bacteria1.


Copper products in the facility:

  • Weight training equipment from Black Iron Strength®
  • Removable hand railing systems from Trimco
  • Door pulls from Rocky Mountain Hardware
  • Athletic trainer treatment carts from Pedigo
  • Light switch and wall plates from Eaton/Arrow Hart
  • Sink, drain and faucet handles from Just Manufacturing
  • Cabinet pulls from Colonial Bronze
