Infection control access solutions

1 June 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

With many organisations planning to resume operations, the implementation of social distancing and infection control in these environments is a challenge currently faced by business owners.

Automation of infection control measures through touchless technologies provides an ideal response to this new challenge as well as improving security and people flow efficiency, now and for years to come.

The entrance of any building is the focal point to ensure an efficient and safe return to operations and the H-Sense solutions, combined with Gunnebo’s SpeedStile range of pedestrian gates, fulfils these objectives.

The solution comprises a number of functionalities: H-Sense G is an automated hand sanitising solution, H-Sense T automates the screening of body temperature and H-Sense M detects the presence of a mask being worn correctly.

Through system integration, access can be denied should any of the preselected criteria for entry not be met.

H-Sense is now available as a factory-fitted option to Gunnebo’s pedestrian solutions or can be retrofitted to existing Gunnebo products.

A further feature that can be activated is the built-in Building Capacity Management (BCM) to control numbers as an effective means of ensuring social distancing. By activating this functionality, you eliminate the reliance on human intervention for capacity counting.

Typical areas of application include commercial and office buildings, retail outlets, healthcare centres, schools and universities, leisure centres, hospitality, convention venues, manufacturing plants and public transport hubs.
