1) Increase Touchless Entries
A worthwhile investment into the future is preventing the spread of diseases, the flu, and other illnesses. While COVID-19 may not be around forever, the CDC estimates that millions of people are burden by the flu each year. That can mean lost revenue and wages for a business. By increasing or retrofitting existing doorways to touchless entries, you can help curb the spread.
2) Upgrade to Antimicrobial Hardware
In areas where touch hardware is still needed, upgrading to antimicrobial hardware can be a great alternative. Businesses have a range of options from Antimicrobial Ionic Silver Coatings, Copper-Based Alloy Handles, Germ Selves, to Microban® Hardware. Harry’s Locksmith has access to different styles, functions, and finishes that fit your building use and design.
3) Incorporate ADA Compliance
This is a great time to examine all entrances, hallways, and exits to make sure they work for everyone. While being wheelchair accessible is one consideration, there many more factors and disabilities to consider. Let a trusted team like Harry’s Locksmith guide you through all the options.
4) Install Smart Door Closers
Low-Energy Automatic Operators help increase safety and accessibility. Closers increase security for your doors. Both allow for code compliance over propping a door open manually, which may have other added risks.
5) Consider Mobile Access Control
Proxy cards on a large scale can require a lot of upkeep for situations where there is theft, card expiration, or general replacements from being misplaced. Mobile access on the other hand, can be granted or revoked remotely. Many companies now also let you set up Mobile Access Controls with your Smartwatch.
