IMI Develops Germ-Free Door Opener, Donates Profits

April 1, 2020
Industrial Magnetics introduces the Foot-Pull Door Opener.
Industrial Magnetics introduces the Foot-Pull Door Opener.

In direct response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Industrial Magnetics Inc. (IMI) has developed a new, hands-free door opener that allows people to open latch-less doors without using their fingers, arms, or clothing. The company has also announced that 100% of profits from the sales of the new device will be donated to local food pantries in Boyne City, MI and surrounding communities.

The Foot-Pull Door Opener is attached to the bottom of a door and allows users to gently pull open doors using the sole of their shoe - eliminating the need to touch potentially contaminated door surfaces and helping to stop the further spread of germs and bacteria.

The company has also devised a way for the Foot-Pull to work on latching, metal doors with lever-style handles by incorporating their "J-hook" magnetic assembly.  The J-hook product attaches magnetically to the door and holds the handle in the open position, converting the door into a "latchless" style that can now be used in conjunction with the foot-pull.  

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

Profits earned from the sale of these items will be donated to the following organizations: Good Neighbors Food Pantry (Boyne City, MI), Care & Share Food Pantry (East Jordan, MI), and Community Food Pantry (Charlevoix, MI).
