Safe door opening system
About our mission
Prevention is better than cure
In order to effectively prevent dangerous events in the public, at work and at home, it is essential to establish healthy habits among the people with whom we share common space.
The first step in the process of developing social awareness and responsibility is the identification of potential threats and risks.
In public spaces, door handles, just like banknotes and coins, are the most common habitat of viruses and bacteria.
Typical places where door handles are particularly prone to the cumulation of viruses and bacteria:
Public and workplace toilets
Social areas in companies
Grocery and beauty supply shops

Frequently Asked Questions
Is the Gligo-Tech Hands-Free Door Opener universal enough to fit any door handle type?
Yes, it is! Our engineers have developed a product adjustable to door handles of any shape and thickness. Each assembly set includes a door opener with a protective non-slip pad which ensures a stable installation of the hook and protects the door handle from potential damage. In the set you will also find installation guide and screws of three lengths to be used depending on the diameter of the door handle.
How will a person staying in a public space know that they are confronted with a safe door opening system?
Each set includes a sticker that we recommend applying to the door right over the hook. The sticker depicts a graphic that shows the user how to use the door handle hook as well as the following phrase whose objective is to positively influence the attitude of the reader: “Stop the virus! Open the door with your forearm”.
Does the installation of the Hands-Free Door Opener require the support of a professional installer?
Definitely not. Each set includes a clear and concise manual and everything that is necessary for the installation including a hex key.
Can I fix the Gligo-Tech Hands-Free Door Opener to a door handle of an external door?
The whole structure is non-corrosive, so, there is no obstacle to fixing the product to external doors.
Why is the Gligo-Tech Hands-Free Door Opener made of metal and not of plastic?
There are three reasons why we have chosen an anodized metal system:
1. A metal construction is more durable than one made of plastic. A door handle hook is a new product on the market and people have no experience in using it, which might cause the risk of putting too much energy into the use of the product and damaging it as a consequence. A metal construction eliminates that risk.
2. We see the outbreak of the COVID 19 pandemic as the beginning of persistent changes to the perception of health and safety in the public. We decided to develop a product with an easily sterilizable surface. Uneven plastic surfaces, as opposed to metal, cannot be disinfected completely.
3. A metal door handle and a metal hook combined together form a consistent and aesthetic unit.
Will the Gligo-Tech Hands-Free Door Opener fit any door?
Yes, it is a universal product for both right-hand and left-hand doors as well for as internal and external doors.
