Hygienic door handle reduces infection risk

July 02, 2020 / ifm

Door handles are known to be a breeding ground for germs. Opening doors without touching the handle with your hands can therefore help reduce the spread of infections. That is why tool designers at ifm set out to develop a door handle that allows you to open and close doors with your forearm. The hygienic door handle (article number E12731) consists of two plastic pieces which can be mounted on round 20-22 mm ø door handles using four screws without damage or drilling holes. The parts are produced in the company's plastic injection moulding department in Tettnang. The machinery, which is also used for the production of inductive sensor housings, has sufficient capacity to accommodate the additional production of door handles.
