Reduce Germs with Hands Free Door Openers

Touchless door activation of your commercial doors reduces the risk of contamination

Facilities managers are always looking for ways to reduce the risk of contamination within their buildings, especially in these difficult times. Door handles are touched by many people in your building, and pose a risk of passing on the Coronavirus and other viruses and germs to your staff and visitors. This is particularly relevant in healthcare and assisted-living facilities and community buildings.

The dedicated team at Texas Access Controls offers solutions for the hands-free opening and closing of your commercial doors. These can be used for new installations as well as to retrofit existing commercial doors. Prevent the cross-contamination on door handles and doorknobs everywhere, and especially where hygiene is of the highest priority such as labs, restaurants and restrooms.

Door Handles are a Source for Cross Contamination

Contaminants can easily be passed from one person to the next when people touch a door handle or push a handicap door opener. Some of the most common germs that can be spread in this way include:

  • Covid-19 and the flu 
  • E. coli which cause food poisoning
  • Fungi cause rashes
  • Protozoa cause diarrhea and nausea 
  • Streptococci which cause cellulitis and strep throat 

Disinfecting your door handles regularly is one way to go about it, but this is impractical in a large facility such as a government building, school or factory. Installing hands-free activation switches on your doors will drastically reduce the work and keep the staff and visitors in your building safe. 

Touchless Switches keep your building free of germs

Automatic switches have become more affordable and are now widely available. We have the solutions to keep your building germ-free with wave sensors and motion sensors.  

We have successfully installed hands-free door switches in:

  • Cleanroom environments: wave sensors for laboratories and research facilities
  • Hospitals:  automatic doors in waiting rooms and intensive care facilities
  • Factories: hands-free switches in chemical processing, manufacturing, and control rooms
  • Office buildings and malls: sliding doors for shopping centers and retail stores
  • Commercial properties: wave sensors for apartments and condos

There are additional advantages to using hands-free door openers. Aside from keeping your doors safe from germs they can also:

  • Improve convenience for your staff and visitors 
  • Increase the value of your property
  • Help with compliance, for example the Americans with Disabilities Act 
  • Reduce the cost of heating with automatic door closers
