Antibacterial Thumbwheel Operators for Vision Control®

Reducing the risk of infection in healthcare and other public settings is crucial. That’s why organizations who value infection control prefer Vision Control® advanced glazing technology combined with our antibacterial thumbwheel operators for exterior and interior windows.

Our antibacterial thumbwheels are high speed and self-reversing, can be accessible from either one or both sides, and are especially well suited for windows with limited surrounding space. They can be fabricated with a range of materials including long-lasting plastic, zinc, brass, or aluminum.

Antibacterial thumbwheel operators are treated with a Sanitized® patented antibacterial treatment that uses silver ions as an active biocidal substance. This helps protect the treated material against bacteria and odor.

Other popular operators for Vision Control products include crank handles, aluminum knobs, anti-ligature knobs, remote controls, and our proprietary QuickGlide™ slider.
