New health and safety considerations in design are shaping the collective conscious of our relationship with hardware and how we operate it. Mockett’s new Door Handle Cuff (DHC1) offers a hygienic approach to operating traditional interior door handles to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria. Mockett is a provider of innovative furniture components and architectural hardware.
DHC1 is a solution to retrofit door handles and help keep health related concerns at bay in offices and commercial spaces. The easy-to-install forearm shield slips over the door handle and is screwed into place. It fits most traditional handles including square or round handles with a ¾” to 1” diameter.
Users rest their forearm into the cuff and press down on the door handle and push or pull to minimize possible contact through contamination. The cuff has a comfortable ergonomic shape for added torque to operate heavier doors.
