the copper mesh collection

Genie Copper Mesh®, Reset, Splash, Vista II

patent-pending, first-to-market, award-winning copper mesh back chairs

Via Seating has developed a unique copper infused mesh by partnering with Cupron, utilizing their copper-based proprietary and patented technology. The copper mesh works by physically embedding an EPA registered copper into the fibers of our Via Seating copper mesh. Through this process, the copper will not wear off like topically applied alternatives. The result is a self-sanitizing, copper-infused mesh that has strong biocidal, antifungal, and antiviral properties. There are additional anti-odor properties to the copper mesh as well. It is available in natural and black finishes for the following collections.

  • Patent-pending.
  • Award-winning: 2017 Best of NeoCon for Innovation in Healthcare Textiles and a Silver Nightingale Award for healthcare textiles.
  • Nature: biocidal (kills harmful microorganisms), antiviral, antifungal and anti-odor.
  • Cleaning: has self-sanitizing properties, but is also bleach-cleanable.
  • Development: the copper is infused directly into the mesh and doesn’t rub off like topically applied applications.
  • Mesh colors: natural copper (copper color) and black copper.
  • Available on 4 series:
    • Genie Copper Mesh® – task/work chair, task/work stool, conference chair, management chair.
    • Reset – nesting chair, light task chair, light task stool.
    • Splash – stacking chair, bar stool, counter stool, light task chair, light task stool.
    • Vista II – stacking chair, bar stool, counter stool.
  • Use: approved for use in healthcare environments and it is used in many other applications. Genie Copper Mesh® has heavy duty and 24/7 environment applications.
  • Quick Ship: see Genie Copper Mesh®, Reset, Splash, and Vista II. All of these series are quick ship with copper mesh.
  • Warranty: see Genie Copper Mesh®, Reset, Splash, and Vista II.

The testing (third-party) was performed using three different microorganisms; Staphylococcus aureus, a gram positive bacteria, Klebsiella pneumoniae, a gram negative bacteria and Candida albicans (a yeast) per AATCC-100 on the following surface textiles currently in use in clinical environments:
– Krypton.
– Silvertex.
– Silica.
– Genie Copper Mesh®.
– Genie® Mesh (without infused copper).

These results showed that the Genie Copper Mesh® outperformed the textiles currently in use in clinical areas. Therefore, this mesh back task chair is better than a fully upholstered back task chair for clinical areas and is equal to chairs upholstered with Silvertex.
