Allegion is dedicated to promoting health and well-being through industry best practices and innovative door opening solutions. Openings contain a variety of door and hardware options that can make buildings healthier as well as improve accessibility for all occupants.

Hands-Free Pulls

One of the easiest ways to reduce touches to door handles, thereby decreasing the spread of germs is to use hands-free pulls instead of levers. Not only can this provide a healthier building, but many styles meet ADA requirements.

Cleaning and disinfecting door hardware

We recommend following the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines under “When and how to clean and disinfect a facility”.

Door Hardware Cleaning Recommendations:

  • Start with mild liquid detergent mixed with water.
  • Wipe surfaces gently with the mixture of mild liquid detergent and water.
  • With water only, wipe surfaces again to remove any detergent residue.
  • NOTE: Do not spray or immerse the hardware in liquid at any time.
