Moreover, in this period of COVID-19, it is important to secure the health of the patients.

Putting a direction of traffic in the establishment with the help of anti-slip stickers or marking a distance of 1.5 to 2 meters, using hands-free door openers that allow the doors to be opened and closed with the arm rather than with the hands or using a door stopper to leave the door open.

All of these products prevent people from touching the doors with their hands.

Elderly people or people in wheelchairs can be injured by getting their fingers caught in the doors. Door finger guards are therefore necessary to secure doors. Research shows that thousands of accidents occur every year when fingers are trapped between doors.

Safe mirrors are important for the elderly because they allow them to see themselves and in certain illnesses, it is important to see their reflection. Moreover, our mirrors are unbreakable which prevents cutting accidents.
