Hygienic Touch Free Automatic Door Opening for COVID-security

Touch Free Contactless Doors

Identifying frequently touched surfaces, especially those touched regularly by many people, is an essential part of a COVID-secure workplace strategy.

The Health & Safety Executive recommends cleaning frequently touched surfaces (e.g. doors, lift buttons, rails and handles), after each use, and if that is not practical, ensure they are cleaned regularly and make changes to the way you work to minimise such surface contamination.

Fitting automatic sensor operated doors is recommended to reduce contact points and the reliance on cleaning regimes for frequently touched surfaces. (Source: UK Government ).

Touch free doors or contactless automatic doors are a practical solution to reduce the number of frequently touched surfaces since they remove the need for people to touch doors and their handles as they move into and around the building.

Existing automatic and disabled doors that are activated by hand contact with a push pad or button can be easily adapted to operate with a contactless switch or sensor. Touch Free or contactless doors are activated by movement, typically hand movement towards a sensor rather than a person approaching, making them ideal for automatic doors where intentional or controlled activation is required.

MGS have a range of options for touch free switches and contactless activation of automatic doors, gates and barriers that are suitable for retrofit, helping to support your COVID-Secure cleaning regimes and workplace safety.
