Hands-Free Door Opening with the Navis Paddle

We all know what it’s like to struggle with a door when we have our hands full with a laundry basket or bags of groceries. The darn handle won’t turn, and it becomes a frustrating, awkward dance to get yourself through the door. Well, no longer — the solution is finally here.

Meet the Navis Paddle, a new handle that lets users open and close doors with a simple push/pull motion. All that’s required is a hip or an elbow to nudge it open, making it perfect for easy access to spaces you frequent when your hands are occupied. The Navis Paddle is easy to install in true DIY fashion and sports a sleek, yet simple design that indicates how it should be used. Its unique push/pull mechanics make it ideal for high-traffic areas like laundry rooms, garage entries, basements, bedrooms and more. The ADA-compliant handle is also accessible for children, the elderly and disabled.

The Navis Paddle comes in three different finishes (polished brass, oil rubbed bronze, satin nickel) and functions (passage, privacy, dummy), depending on your home design and room or entry requirements. For example, you can pair a passage function with a Yale Assure Lock - Connected by August on your front door -- with the Auto Unlock feature and the Navis Paddle, hands-free entry into your home has never been easier.

The Navis Paddle is the first product in Yale’s new Pivot Collection, which will include additional thoughtfully-designed knobs, levers, handlesets and deadbolts. Look out for more offers!
