How Small Businesses Can Keep Entrances COVID-19 Secure

For small businesses in a wide variety of industries, the COVID-19 pandemic has provoked an unprecedented range of challenges. Ensuring the safety of staff and customers, making difficult decisions about furlough and even redundancy, and trying to keep money coming in have pushed many businesses to breaking point.

As the country begins to ease out of lockdown, many small businesses are faced with the challenge and expense of making significant changes to premises and processes in order to operate safely. Managing security and access in the workplace is just one of those areas that will need to be addressed. 

Doors and entryways often see the highest traffic of any area in the workplace. With multiple shared surfaces and multiple people passing through multiple times in a day, these areas pose a significant risk for virus transmission. How can small businesses combat this risk and get staff back to work safely, while maintaining the highest levels of physical security?

For companies with up to 50 employees, a door automation solution powered by personal transmitters issued to each staff member can eliminate the need for physical contact with a doorway. As staff members approach the entrance, they press the button on their personal transmitter. This sends a signal to the receiver, which in turn triggers the door operator to open the door. The employee can then enter the building safely, with no need to touch any shared surface. Combine this system with an electric locking solution to give small businesses the peace of mind that their property is secure and protected. 

As employees exit the building, they can either use their transmitter to trigger the door to open, or an infrared touchless exit device on the inside of the door can be activated with just a wave of the hand. With zero contact between people and the physical environment required, an end-to-end touchless solution helps keep everyone safe and ensures business premises are secure.

Adapting to the new normal of COVID-19 is not easy for any organisation. With CDVI’s door automation and touchless solutions, small businesses can start getting staff back into their buildings safely, confident in the security of their entrances.
