Automated door systems are a part of everyday life and are used within hospitals, care-homes, warehouses, and retail environments. Not only do automated door systems offer easy access, but they also offer dramatically increased hygiene thanks to touch-free door opening and an anti-microbial finish.
Many businesses and organisations are now looking for additional ways to increase hygiene as we prepare to loosen lockdown rules. Touchless activation ensures covid-19 secure doors by eliminating the use of outside door handles, a major source of contamination. The activation pad itself is coated with an anti-microbial finish meaning that bacteria and viruses, including Covid-19, will not survive.
Open doors with just the wave of a hand
We stock a wide range of touchless activation pads, including popular J-Wave infrared switch sensors. To open the door, you simply wave your hand 10-30cm in front of the switch.
The slimline jamb style gives a sleek look and is often installed alongside LED illumination, making it easy to locate, even in dark environments.
Anti-Microbial switches help to protect against covid-19
Anti-bacterial switches sense activation from up to 50mm away, so no touch is required. However, if contact is made with the pad, it will ensure that any bacteria and viruses will not survive. This is thanks to the surface design which is non-scratch, non-porous and anti-reflective.
These activation pads are not only suitable for general use, but they are also clean room compatible and used within food production and other environment where good hygiene is crucial.
SteriTouch® technology is proven to be at least 99.9% effective and is tested using an independent laboratory.
Reducing the risk of a second spike
It’s imperative that we all work together where we can to increase hygiene levels and reduce hand contact with every-day objects in busy areas. Touchless activation does this by ensuring good hygiene and reduced contact with contamination points.
