Touchless Security Entrance Solutions
For years, we’ve seen more contactless solutions in our everyday lives, from contactless payments and travel, to building entrances and facility use. We embrace technology that streamlines time-consuming tasks, and in today's climate, accepting technological change that improves the safety of all has become more valuable.
Commercial buildings have deployed touchless entrances for decades – in the form of automatic doors that are activated by presence detection sensors, Bluetooth, biometric readers, voice recognition and more. Many sectors employ touchless entrances today, for example: hospitals, retail stores, research facilities, academic institutions, airports, data centers, etc.
The right touchless entrance for you will depend on your facility: is the public to be allowed access, or only certain authorized individuals and approved visitors? If your facility requires restricted access, keep in mind that automatic swinging and sliding doors, though they are touchless, enable unauthorized intrusion through the act of tailgating.
Touchless Entrances Designed to Secure Facilities
Automatic door guidelines require that a swinging or sliding door remain open for at least 10 seconds before closing. During that 10 seconds, an authorized user may enter, but several unauthorized ones can as well – either innocently or with bad intentions.
Automatic turnstiles, security revolving doors and mantrap portals operate under different guidelines and are designed to protect facilities from intrusion. They offer a truly hands-free experience for users while protecting people and assets from threats such as theft leading up catastrophic loss and liability.
Integrating Technology for Touchless Entrances
There many opportunities to integrate a host of cutting-edge technologies that prevent the need for any user contact, such as:
- Access Cards
- Facial Recognition
- Hand-wave Technology
- Iris Scanners
- Mobile/Bluetooth Readers
- 3D Touchless Fingerprint Access
By using these technologies in conjunction with automatic security entrances, the benefits include:
- Less risk of user cross-contamination
- Faster, secure access to destinations
- Continuous industry innovation, enhancing the user experience
- Ability to connect once disparate building systems
- Increased visibility to mitigate risks
Touchless Entrances for Public Access
Automatic revolving doors continue to serve public buildings, airports, hospitality, large retail and more. They have been touchless by design for decades to serve the busy traveller, the hospital gurney, shopping carts and more, all while keeping unwanted air outside, reducing HVAC loads, stack pressure and wind tunnel effects.
Today’s revolving doors also offer security options worth considering, such as remote locking and integration with access control systems
