Purehold PRO Handle
A unique, revolutionary pull door hygiene handle that automatically dispenses sanitising gel onto the users hand. Designed for use in high-risk areas, The Purehold PRO handle is ideal for use in food processing plants, hospitals, clean rooms and all staff/public toilets to ensure that hand hygiene is enforced.
The concept of a sanitising door handle was originally developed in conjunction with National Health Service (NHS) Infection Prevention specialists but has since expanded into the food processing sector and beyond, helping to greatly reduce the spread of pathogens across numerous industries.

How it works
To operate the Purehold PRO handle, simply (1) grip the blue "gel" handle, (2) pull the door open as normal, and (3) rub hands together. It's that easy!
When a person pulls the blue handle to open the door, sanitising alcohol hand gel is automatically released through the patented release valve system onto their hand. It's ‘intelligent’ delivery system ensures that the volume of alcohol gel delivered is always appropriate to the size of the user’s hand. This avoids inefficient and costly excess waste of the hand gel; something that is often seen with traditional hand gel dispensers.
Why it works
Installation of the Purehold PRO handle significantly improves hand hygiene compliance rates because it forces users to clean their hands.
Studies have shown that a high percentage of people do not use conventional wall-mounted dispensers because they are in too much of a rush, can’t be bothered, are not aware they should, or because the gel dispenser is empty. It seems that in a busy and cluttered world, wall-mounted gel dispensers are losing the battle to grab people's attention.
The Purehold PRO handle solves this problem by incorporating the alcohol gel dispenser into the door handle, ensuring that most people who pass through the door DO use the sanitising hand gel.
