Door handle 115

The relevance of hygiene is becoming increasingly important in the fields of architecture and construction. Architects and planners are increasingly focusing on this aspect, particularly when designing highly frequented buildings and rooms in the public sector.

One of the most common ways in which bacteria and viruses are transmitted to humans is via the door handle. When coughing and sneezing, germs get on the hand, which many people leave on door handles when they touch them.
Germs spread rapidly, particularly in highly frequented buildings such as offices, educational and healthcare facilities as well as shopping centers or sports facilities.

For HEWI, design and function are closely linked. This design philosophy is also reflected in solutions and products in the area of hygiene.
With the clever design of lever handle 115 and a special surface, HEWI enables optimum hygiene at the door.

The clever ergonomic design of lever handle 115 makes it easy to operate with the elbow. The user opens the door with the elbow handle without touching the door handle with his hand.
The learned look of the lever handle allows intuitive operation with the elbow when closing and opening doors.

Good to know: The rounded shape of the lever handle is easy to grip even when operated by hand and prevents slipping. The U-shape also prevents the clothes from getting caught in passing.


Optimum hygiene thanks to antimicrobial surface

The 115 lever handle is also available in the active+ variant on request and enables a further plus in hygiene.

It is not always possible to operate a lever handle with the elbow. In this case, the active+ antimicrobial surface provides additional hygiene at the door.

The active+ process has already been used successfully for years in buildings with strict hygiene requirements such as hospitals and nursing homes. Especially in these facilities, optimal hygiene is important for patients and residents with a weakened immune system.
