Fiskars Group starts sales and commercial production of hands-free handle

The redesigned hands-free handle, which helps prevent the spread of infections, is moving into commercial production and sales. The innovative handle made from Fortum Circo® recycled plastic makes it possible to open a door with your arm. The door-handle supplement, which attaches to a door, was piloted in spring with a grocery store and was found to clearly reduce hand contact with surfaces.

Fiskars Group is responsible for the design, manufacturing and sales of the handle, previously known as Fortum Vipu. The handle is manufactured in Finland at Fiskars Group's Billnäs plant in Raseborg. It is made from Fortum Circo® recycled plastic produced at Fortum’s Riihimäki plastics refinery from domestic consumer plastic packaging waste.
