Touching doors safely

In high traffic areas it may be more practical to change the door hardware used. These can be products which avoid the use of hands, or products which have anti-microbial surfaces.

By installing specially designed low-touch door hardware such as push/pull hardware allows doors to be opened with a nudge of the hip, a pull of the arm or foot, reducing the level of contact a person has with the door.

Installing handles treated with anti-microbial treatment or using materials such as copper with its anti-microbial properties, effectively reduces the risk of transmission.

These door hardware solutions coupled with proper hardware cleaning techniques improve facility safety, by mitigating the spread of germs through high frequency touch points within a building. 

We offer three different solutions to make doors safer to touch:

1. Low touch furniture
