Industrial Magnetics, Inc. Develops New Arm-Pull for Hands-free Door Opening

For Immediate Release: Posted On 5/21/2020 By Industrial Magnetics, Inc.

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Industrial Magnetics, Inc.(IMI) has developed the Arm-Pull, a hands-free door opener that allows users to open swing-style doors without using their hands or fingertips.

The new Arm-Pull attaches to latch-less, swing-style doors and allows people to pull the door open using their forearm, wrist or elbow when entering or exiting a room.

Perfect for public restrooms, retail stores, office buildings, and shop floors, the product can be used on metal or wood doors using the magnetic or through-hole mounting options. The product is constructed from heavy duty, stainless-steel as a one piece, laser-cut and precision formed unit for durability and performance.

The company has also devised a way for the Arm-Pull to work on latching doors with lever-style handles by incorporating their "J-Hook" magnetic assembly. The J-hook product holds the door handle in the open position, converting the door into a "latch-less" style that can now be used in conjunction with the Arm-Pull.

The Arm-Pull builds on the success of the company’s previously released door opener, the Foot-Pull, which attaches to the bottom of a door and allows people to use the sole of their shoe to pull the door inward.
