Cumming, GA (PRWEB) March 23, 2007
The SanitGrasp® (patent pending) is a new door pull handle that allows a person to exit the restroom door with their wrist or forearm, thereby avoiding germs on the traditional restroom door pull handle.
Fulkerson, LLC President, Matthew Fulkerson, stated, "This product provides a unique opportunity for an establishment to show their customers they really care about the health of their facility. We have all seen a person leave the restroom stall and head straight for the restroom exit door. What happens when a cook leaves the restroom and picks up those nasty viruses? It is well known that germs can stay alive on hard surfaces for a minumum of 20 minutes. This is one way of spreading the common cold, e.coli, staphylococcus (the virus behind food poisoning and a form of pneumonia) or even hepatitis A. The SanitGrasp® allows those who wash their hands to exit without touching a contaminated restroom door pull handle." Many restaurants in North America and Central America are improving their facility with the SanitGrasp®.
Public Restroom Door Handle Concerns
The SanitGrasp® was developed to solve the following problem in a public restrooms:
1. Use the facilities - probably with an automatic flusher
2. Wash hands - probably with an automatic faucet
3. Exit restroom by touching pull handle - hands once again are contaminated
The SanitGrasp® is the Solution
The "J" shaped pull handle allows patrons and employees to open the restroom exit door with their wrist or forearm. This provides many benefits:
- Increased the sanitation within an establishment
- Ease of use for those with hand disabilities
- Reduced paper towel waste and expense
- Enhanced customer experience
"The SanitGrasp® offers a rare opportunity to quickly and economically improve a customer's experience. It is a very easy retrofit for existing door pull handles," stated Matthew Fulkerson.
