Access Control In the Age of Coronavirus

Let us help you protect your staff, clients, and patients.

It’s no secret that bacteria and viruses settle along major surfaces that we come into contact with on a daily basis, including door handles. While most of these microbes are effectively harmless, the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, has proven to be very infectious and potentially dangerous, especially for the elderly and those with compromised immune systems.

In the wake of this crisis, there has been an increased effort to focus on cleanliness and sanitation for all hard surfaces. But it is still very difficult to ensure that these surfaces remain safe. It’s impossible to determine who has touched door handles, locks, and other critical surfaces and at what time. Even with an intensified cleaning regime, it’s, unfortunately, possible for this virus to spread unknowingly. The best solution is to limit personal exposure to these surfaces.

Luckily, the Flying Locksmiths has hardware and access control systems that can help you to create a safer environment for your staff, clients, patients, and other visitors during this difficult period.

Antimicrobial Door Hardware & Solutions

The Flying Locksmiths partners with Allegion for the highest standard in antimicrobial door hardware. We offer hardware for panic and exit devices, push/pull locks, levers, locks, biometric meters, and other door accessories. These products are coated with a silver ion solution antimicrobial coating. While these products are not designed to be a substitute for good hygiene practices, they can help to keep bacteria from spreading.

Access Control & Hands-Free Door Systems

We have a wide range of access control/hands-free door systems in our arsenal to help you combat the spread of infectious diseases and viruses. A few of these examples include smart locks, key fobs, automatic doors, card access, and mobile phone access. Learn more about how access control systems like Openpath are using their hands-free systems to slow the spread of covid-19.
