What door operator actuators would you recommend for a health care facility?


We like the “wave to enter” or “magic touch” type actuators which decrease germs. They are both touchless activation sensors, some utilize microwave technology and the Doppler Radar effect emits a signal that, when reflected by a moving object such as a hand, a cart, or a wheelchair, it will activate the door. This touchless feature greatly reduces the spread of bacteria commonly found on push plates. These sensors can be used in washrooms, clean rooms, operating rooms, and others throughout any healthcare facility. These are also used in food processing plants, as well as restaurants. Most of these sensors have an adjustable range of 3″ to 24″ and may be mounted behind drywall. See more information on door operators for Healthcare Facilities on our website.
