This Hands-Free Device Eliminates Cross-Contamination When Opening Doors

This is the Pedalknob, a hands-free door-opening device that is specifically engineered to prevent cross-contamination of germs and open doors hands-free in a safe and controlled manner. PedalKnob’s patent-pending braking allows the user to keep his/her balance and control while swinging open heavy commercial doors.

The PedalKnob also has a state-of-the-art pivot system that keeps users from tripping while swinging open doors with their feet. This is especially important as commercial doors in restaurants, offices, stores and conference rooms are typically heavier than residential doors. They often have a pneumatic resistance systems or spring-loaded hinges to keep up with high-traffic.



This is a low-cost solution that’s perfect for other high-traffic doors in bathrooms, lobbies, hospitals, hotels, schools, gyms, etc. PedalKnob notes that an average person can open a door 10 times-a-day and combined that with coworkers, clients and customers touching the same door, the rate of cross-contamination is “simply overwhelming.”
