Jamco Corporation has revealed a hands-free aircraft lavatory lock knob and door handle, developed in collaboration with Japanese airline, All Nippon Airways (ANA). For passengers who do not wish to use their fingers or hands to open the lavatory door – of greater concern given Covid-19 – the solution allows them to use their forearm or elbow to open the door.
According to Jamco, the lock knob and door handle are low-cost items that can be installed overnight to existing lavatories without major modification. ANA expects to be the first operator of the knobs and handles, which will form another part of the ANA Care Promise, the company’s commitment to ensure health and safety of passengers with hygienic environments in airports, lounges, and onboard aircraft.
