Door handles, hygienic
Architectural ironmongery expert James Gibbons Format, has now developed ULNA, an arm/elbow-operated door handle, designed for hygienic use and infection control.
The ULNA levers reduce the possibility of contamination, especially in areas where infection control is a very important factor, such as hospitals, healthcare centres, food-processing facilities, doctors, dentists and care facilities. ULNA also helps to reinforce hygiene awareness on each and every occasion that the lever is operated.
The main advantages of ULNA include:
- eradicates the first vector of contamination (the door handle)
- is DDA Compliant
- variety of colours available
- can be used on new or existing doors
- durable and comfortable to use
- designed of high-usage areas
- easy to install.
80% of Nosocomial Infections are transmitted by hands, hence why handles like the ULNA lever are paramount in todays society. The ULNA lever is the first ergonomic and anti-contamination lever handle designed to counter the spread of infection.
