COVID-19 can be stopped right at the entrance to office buildings, schools, hospitals, factories and in public transportation using the hi-tech infection control products launched by Gunnebo, the Swedish global provider of smart access control solutions.
The new family of access control solutions supports the smooth return to a safe working environment by providing automated infection prevention through contactless processes, maximised social distancing, and enforcement of body temperature and personal protective equipment regimes.
Body temperature detection
The new H-Sense range offers three levels of protection:
- Body temperature detection integrated into the gate combines image analytics with infrared thermal monitoring to deliver contactless temperature measurement to an accuracy of ±0.3°C. The system denies entry to anyone exhibiting an elevated body temperature.
- Hygienic mask detection via a high precision camera integrated into the gate, backed up by image analytics, recognises if the visitor is wearing a mask and denies access if it is absent.
- An automatic gel dispenser delivers a dose of hand sanitiser contactlessly and prevents entry unless the sanitiser has been administered.
Infection control processes
More details about the product can be found on the company’s official website. These stylish modern gates can also now be configured with increased flexibility to maximise social distancing in limited entrance spaces. The new infection control features can be retro-fitted to existing gates.
“We foresee increased demand for access control solutions with a higher degree of connectivity and peripherals to meet specific needs created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our new H-Sense range provides efficient and user-friendly infection control processes linked to the right of access, ensuring that protective measures are properly and safely enforced”, says Robert Hermans, SVP Entrance Control, Gunnebo.
