Jamco Corporation has unveiled its new hands-free lavatory lock knob and door handle, which allows passengers to unlock and open the lavatory door without using their hands. The hands-free lock and handle system are designed to utilise passengers’ elbows and forearms to operate the familiar lock and handle system on the lavatory door.

The patent-pending hands-free lavatory door lock and handle are part of Jamco’s Project Blue Sky initiative, a global, collaborative effort of the company and its affiliates to develop and produce touchless, hygienic cabin interior products for the aerospace industry.

Jamco is also developing new hands-free and low-touch concepts for other areas within the lavatory such as the toilet seat/lid and waste flap to minimise contact in these high-touch areas, reducing the possible spread of germs, as well as reducing the need for disinfection.
