In times of crisis, people look to secure their safety; as the world prepares for ‘the new normal’ it is vital to move from a reactive mindset to a proactive one, with health and safety at the forefront of people’s minds.
As businesses begin to reopen and the public sector unlocks, access control will play a key role in infection control – keeping employees, customers and the general public safe from transmission.
Post-COVID research discovered when ‘out and about’, almost half of British people surveyed now want ‘motion sensors so you don’t have to touch things’. We must rethink how we interact with our environment. Listening to the calls of customers throughout the pandemic Safety Technology International have sought a solution for contactless entries and exits.
Honouring the problem-solving blueprint of company founder Jack Taylor, the inventor of the original Stopper protective cover, the new NoTouch Buttons harness the power of current infrared technology to stem the spread of Covid-19.
When used in conjunction with an automatic door opener or hands-free foot plate, as suggested by the Health and Safety Executive, the buttons provide a completely touchless entry and exit system, requiring no physical contact at all.
To activate the NoTouch Button, a person must simply wave or gesture their hand in front of the infrared sensor at a variable detection range. The device will detect this motion, indicated by dual colour status LEDs, then open or unlatch the door for an adjustable amount of time, without the user needing to touch a button.
