PIRNAR OneTouch is the world’s first automatic door handle. When the built-in finger scanner recognises the owner, the handle automatically deploys from the smooth panel. The handle is illuminated as the door unlocks and opens. When the door is closed, the handle retracts, leaving strangers unable to open it. OneTouch handles can be rendered in inox steel or a combination of inox and glass, wood or aluminium. The handle is a comfort and security milestone and currently pending patent approval.
Statement of the jury
The extendible door handle is a fascinating innovation that offers added security as well as convenience and an exclusive look.
