Ergonomically Designed Door Knob of the Future Requires Only 1/2in Movement to Open Door

March 5, 2012 Leave a comment

SOSS breaks the mold of the traditional turn-style door knobs with the ergonomic UltraLatch with Privacy Lock. The UltraLatch is the most ADA friendly lockset available today and is especially ideal for anyone with upper extremity limitations that might make the twisting of a traditional knob or lever difficult. Unlike a door knob or lever which requires a twist of the wrist to open, the UltraLatch opens a door with a simple push/pull of the lever. What makes the UltraLatch unique from other push/pull latches is that it only requires 1/2 inch of movement to open. This means the door can be opened easily even when both hands are full. Its ergonomic handle is designed to conform perfectly to the shape of the hand and keep the users wrist in a neutral position when opening the door. The UltraLatch is designed to seamlessly mesh into a home or office and will even retrofit to most existing door cutouts for a hassle-free installation. The push/pull lever design of the UltraLatch also adds to the hassle-free installation process because it allows it to fit on both left and right-handed doors. This UltraLatch also includes a privacy lock which, when pressed, stops the lever on the other side from being able to open. It is constructed in the USA and has been cycle tested to meet or exceed ANSI Grade 1 specifications. Read More
