Create More Space with Copper

Architects are creating beautiful new homes and extensions clad with copper.  Some choose their material colour from the palette offered by copper and its alloys whilst others select natural copper, knowing that the colour will change over time. 

Antimicrobial properties

Copper is inherently antimicrobial, meaning it will rapidly and completely kill bacteria, viruses and fungi.  It shares this property with many commonly-used copper alloys, including brasses and bronzes, and together these ‘antimicrobial copper’ surfaces offer exciting options for reducing contamination in the home.
