Restroom Trip No Longer Requires Hands

Read More About

According to a recent study, only 43 percent of men and 54 percent of women wash their hands after using the restroom. That means that many public restroom doors are often contaminated with an array of germs. But a new technology is now helping to rid that spread of germs at more and more public restrooms nationwide.

The Sanidoor is a touch-free door opening system designed to reduce the spread of germs through eliminating door surface contact going in and out of the restroom. Doors equipped with the Sanidoor system open with a wave of a hand, much like hands-free faucets and towel dispensers. Sanidoor is currently popular in many restaurants and businesses in Florida and is now poised to launch throughout North America with its new second-generation system, which will also feature models developed specifically for swinging doors and single-use locking public restrooms.

The Sanidoor system is already installed and eliminating germs in more than 300 public restroom locations in the U.S., and it is gaining popularity among large employers, hotels, hospitals, doctor's offices, and retail outlets.

Sanidoor can be retro-fitted to any swinging door in public, commercial, and business settings: restaurants, hotels, stores, hospitals, healthcare facilities, city and county buildings, and more. Approved to meet all U.S. and Canadian standards for automatic door openers, Sanidoor easily installs on existing public restroom doors, including retrofit and new construction. The design of the Sanidoor system even includes safety measures for impediment and entrapment protection. Sanidoor is ADA compliant and is internationally patented and trademarked.
