With discussions about how to create a safer and more hygienic experience for employees and customers, many businesses have begun to adapt by offering contactless pickup, touchless hand dryers in the bathroom, or having employees wear masks. But what about one of the most touched surfaces in places such as a public bathrooms, offices, retail stores, and restaurants – the door handles. Automatic doors are an easy solution to help prevent the spread of germs and create touch-free access to places that customers and employees need to enter.
