ArmAssist™: The Hands-Free Door Handle Accessory

Door handles everywhere are high-contact surfaces that can carry bacteria. This is especially true for door handles at your local grocery and convenience stores. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, retailers have valiantly increased their cleaning protocols, but they cannot disinfect every surface after every use.

Zero Zone cares about our retail partners and their shoppers, so our team innovated a hands-free accessory for our reach-in display case door handles. The patent pending ArmAssist™ is a lever that attaches to door handles to help shoppers open the door with their arm instead of their hand. Shoppers use their forearm to pull open the door, which eliminates the need for hand-to-handle contact.

Arming the ArmAssist™

Zero Zone is excited to join forces with Sciessent and implement their Agion® Antimicrobial silver ion technology into our ArmAssist™. The antimicrobial treatment is added to the plastic of the ArmAssist™ during the manufacturing process. Both Zero Zone and Sciessent are proud to serve our retail heroes and their shoppers.

Intuitive to Use

Shoppers instinctively know to reach out and use their arm on the ArmAssist™ to open the display case door. It is easy to understand and comfortable to use. Your shoppers will appreciate this proven, hands-free alternative, which gives them peace of mind as they stock up on essentials in the refrigerated and frozen food sections of your supermarket, grocery, or convenience store.

Easy to Install

The installation process is practically self-explanatory, with the durable pieces fitting together in a way that makes it easy to install correctly. Simply assemble, and the ArmAssist™ is ready to reduce hand-to-handle contact.


The patent pending ArmAssist™ is manufactured and sourced in the U.S.A. with recyclable materials and designed to fit a wide variety of handles, including:

Zero Zone CoolArc™

Zero Zone Classic

Zero Zone Crescent™

Anthony Soft-touch
