Have more questions about Antimicrobial Protection? Check out our FAQs below.



  • What is the definition of antimicrobial?

    An antimicrobial is a substance that acts to inhibit the growth of microorganisms and suppresses microorganism reproduction. This provides an added level of protection against damaging microbes such as, bacteria, mold and mildew that can cause stains, odors and product deterioration.
  • What products is Microban® available on?

    Microban® technology is available on select Kwikset® products. Look for the Microban® sticker on Kwikset® packaging.
  • How does Microban® antimicrobial protection work on my door hardware?

    Microban® protection is incorporated into the finish of select Kwikset® knobs and levers during our manufacturing process. When microbes come in contact with the product surface, Microban® protection penetrates the cell wall of the microorganism and disrupts the cell, making the microorganism unable to grow and reproduce.
  • What benefit do I get from Kwikset® products with Microban® antimicrobial protection?

    Microban® protection continuously prevents the uncontrolled growth of microbes that cause stains, odors and product degradation. Microban® protection makes the products in your home easier to clean and keeps them cleaner and fresher between cleanings.
  • What types of microorganisms does Microban® protection work against?

    Microban® antimicrobial protection is effective against most common bacteria, yeasts, molds and fungi that cause stains, odors and product degradation. Microban® technology is not designed to protect users from disease causing microorganisms.
  • How do I know that Microban® antimicrobial product protection is safe?

    Consumer safety is a fundamental concern for us. The Microban® antimicrobials used in Kwikset® finishes are approved by the US EPA and have a history of safe use in door hardware. Because Microban®’s antimicrobial additives are built into our products themselves, using our products does not result in consumer exposures or transmission directly into the environment in the way that products like disinfectants or liquid antibacterial soaps do during use. Additionally, Kwikset® products never contain triclosan or triclocarban.
  • Do any Kwikset® products contain triclosan or triclocarban?

    No, Kwikset® does not manufacture any products that contain triclosan or triclocarban. Kwikset® is committed to delivering unmatched quality to our consumers and puts the safety of our customers above all else.
  • How long does Microban® antimicrobial protection work?

    Microban® protection is incorporated to the finish of select Kwikset® products during the manufacturing process and will not wash off or wear away. The effectiveness of Microban® is contingent on the life of the finish. If the finish is degraded in the future, the Microban® efficacy may be compromised. Kwikset® offers a lifetime finish warranty on all products, in the event the finish of your product is damaged Kwikset® would replace the product.
