Securitech, a manufacturer of special locking solutions, announces the launch of Ayzre, a hands-free solution for operating door levers.
Ayzre was developed in response to the global call for infection control and the prevention of community spread of COVID-19 and will allow for hygienic operation of doors with latches, according to the announcement.
While arm and foot pulls may be added to push/pull doors and automatic opening features can be added to create powered door openings, there was no simple, hands-free solution to open doors with levers and latches, which are quite common because they are required for fire-code compliance, the announcement states. Understanding this, as well as the need to reduce the community spread of germs, Securitech says it rose to the challenge of creating a cost-effective way to allow hands-free operation of these doors.
Said to be easily retrofitted and quick to install onto existing door levers, Ayzre provides an affordable, compliant, and ADA-accessible solution for facilities seeking to reduce touchpoints and improve health safety. Fitting over existing door handles, the new product’s ergonomic design allows users to instinctively operate the door with an elbow or arm.
Ayzre is antimicrobial, fire-rated and is designed for use with Grade 1 cylindrical lever locks, many mortise lever locks, and exit device lever trim. The device maintains full fire and life-safety code compliance and does not mar the door with new drill holes; it can be removed without any visible door alteration.
The mechanical, hands-free attachment can be installed in under 10 minutes and comes with various inserts to ensure a tight fit to any door handle, according to the announcement.
“We pride ourselves on our customer focus and the needs of our end-user. While we’ve built a reputation for our forced-entry and locking products, we are a solution-focused company at the end of the day,” says CEO Mark Berger. “Deep down, after the storm passes, we all want to return to normal, but we also want a safer, more hygienic normal. That’s why we invented Ayzre. And an unintended benefit is that we’ve also created a terrific, long-term aid for people with disabilities to open door levers easily.”
