Peace of mind and a great way to protect your customers systems from spreading transmissible diseases
Who’d have thought that exit systems would one day really be a potential ‘health issue’…? The idea that you can pick a potentially life threatening disease by simply touching a button is something that just a few years ago seemed totally ridiculous. But with Covid less in the news nowadays, and the devastating effects still with tens of thousands of people, we're all being encouraged to take personal responsibility. Now, we’re learning about ‘Monkey Pox’, which is on the news bulletins every day and the health risks and the ease of transmission. One way our industry can help is providing simple solutions that help minimise risk and certainly help in the reduction of easily transmissible diseases.
And so let’s take a quick look at some ‘covid busters’ or in proper industry speak ‘touch free exit buttons’.
There are several models from different manufacturers on the market. But the ones we really like at the ones from SRS and RGL. Both manufacturers offer products that are easy to install and either made from stainless steel or zinc alloy. Standard ‘square box’ surface and flush options are available and SRS also offer a slimline waterproof version which is particularly stylish as a surface mounted solution.
SRS Surface Narrow Waterproof Touch Free Exit Button
SRS Surface/Flush Stainless Steel Touch Free Exit Button
RGL hands-free stainless steel, NO TOUCH exit button with sensor
The point is that they do exactly what they set out to do, They are ‘hands free’ and they do help minimising risk of transmission of bacteria. They’re a great way of upgrading your customers systems and gives them complete ‘peace of mind’ that they are doing exactly the right thing. Maybe one day soon, all exit buttons will have to be 'touch free'...? Interesting times indeed.
