FSB forearm shield for door pulls

no-hands operation of (external) doors to minimise the transmission of viruses

The COVID-19 pandemic currently raging underlines just how crucial it is that shared contact surfaces are reduced throughout the world. With its forearm shield for door pulls, FSB is supplying yet another innovative solution “made in Germany” that enables external doors to be operated in a “no hands” style – with the help of the user’s forearm.

In areas subject to high levels of footfall – in healthcare establishments, offices, professional premises or public buildings – any object we come into contact with regularly is particularly likely to be contaminated and thus act as a host for the transmission of viruses, bacteria and multi- resistant germs. This is where FSB comes in with innovative solutions for the no-hands operation of doors.

FSB’s forearm shield is fitted to standard push/pull handles with the aid of four stainless-steel screws and threaded metal bushes. This enables external doors, too, to be conveniently and safely opened and closed again with the aid of the user’s forearm – thus avoiding hands coming into direct contact with the door fitting. The shield is made of glass-fibre-reinforced polyamide, which is notable for being extremely rugged and is also easy to clean and disinfect.

With its forearm shield for door pulls, FSB is once again responding to customer requests for the option of no-hands operation without the bother of having to replace existing fittings. This latest dedicated solution sees FSB underscore its standing as a sturdy purveyor of dependable and innovative products, even in times as challenging as those we are currently going through. Design always shapes the way people think and act in FSB’s view, pump-priming up-to-the-minute product developments with a direct bearing on contemporary trends and requirements.
