DAYTONA BEACH — A new hands-free restroom door opening device reduces touch points and helps minimize waste, giving building occupants and cleaning professionals peace of mind, according to the Los Angeles Times
, an electrically-powered device allowing patrons to leave a public restroom without touching a door handle, is already in use at some P.F. Chang''s China Bistro
and Port Orange Steakhouse
locations, the story stated.
Because a fair number of individuals fail to properly wash their hands after visiting a restroom, the Sanidoor eliminates the risk involved with touching soiled and contaminated restroom door handles, the story noted.
At a cost of roughly $1,300, the motion-activated Sanidoor can significantly reduce paper waste because patrons will no longer feel compelled to use paper towels to grasp restroom door handles while exiting, the story added.
