The world changed in 2020… …nobody wants to touch anything!
Here’s what we recommend for door and pathway design…
…Hands-Free Access with Touchless Activation in lieu of push-plate technology.
Touchless activation retrofits are achievable for almost any “push-plate” door.
…Manual Door Retrofit Conversions to Automatic and Touchless Activated. Any manual door type can be converted to automatic.
…More Automatic Doors incorporated into New Designs,
especially those doors used by more people and/or at higher frequency. “Anticipated Use Metrics” to determine which doors should be automatic.
…Pathways and Corridors designed to minimize or eliminate contact with surfaces
and/or with people, which means more one-way/uni-directional circulation and wider corridors.
…Smartphone Control of locks and devices that are traditionally tactile.
Several manufacturers already have relevant products on the market.
…Self-Sanitizing Coatings for contact devices and surfaces and/or
Use of Controlled and Targeted UV Light Rays to disinfect.
