Door opener with foot - The Footsy

Door handles are some of the most unhygienic surfaces in your office and homes.

Unfortunately, in most places, there are no hand washing stations directly outside the door. That calls for opening the front door with your hands first before you can wash them. At a time when hygiene is critical, this can be a crucial mistake that exposes your home to unseen germs and bacteria.

With our simple, easy to install Footsy, you can make it safe and hygienic to open your doors without touching the door with your hands.

What is the Footsy?

The Footsy is a unique creation from one of the leading innovators in the world – thyssenkrupp. It features a carefully designed aluminium plate that attaches to the bottom of your door.

The little plate is held firmly into place using three screws that screw directly to the door with minimal damage. Once the Footsy is in place, you only need to place your foot on the plate to pull the door open.
