Monroe Engineering Launching Hands-Free Door Opener

Monroe launches to support Covid 19 response

Rochester Hills, MI— May 20, 2020 — Monroe Engineering LLC (Monroe) recently secured the patent to manufacturer the DoorWave Hands-Free Door Pull for all global markets.  The DoorWave is designed to eliminate the need to touch door handles when entering buildings or using internal doors.  The hands-free door assist is easy to install as a retrofit (about ten minutes) and is domestically manufactured.     

“I’ve always thought touching doors when entering a building or exiting a bathroom is just gross. The DoorWave product allows me to easily swing the door open with my foot and not expose my just washed hands to more germs. We are bringing this product to market on a mass scale because we truly believe it solves a problem in society. Maybe it just took a global pandemic to realize just how impactful we can be to help stop the spread of Covid 19 and other viruses”, commented Garrett Morelock, Monroe CEO.

Monroe is working with major maintenance and repair distributors across the United States and Canada to reach small businesses, churches, and schools in local communities. The company has a website to allow folks to gather more information, see product videos, installation instructions and make a purchase. Major malls, airports, restaurant chains, and government agencies are encouraged to reach out directly for larger volume inquiries

“We have been meeting for weeks developing action plans to bring our people safely back to work.  One of our major obstacles is cleaning common surfaces including door handles. The DoorWave allows us to minimize door handle exposure and reduce our “risk factor score” with minimal investment”, said Tim Presley, Spangle Fasteners.
