Architects, planners and facility operators who want to continue building attractive, future-proof buildings must take into account the increased hygiene awareness of the people who enter them. The new free Touchless Solutions eBookfrom dormakaba, a global leader in access and security solutions, addresses the five most critical points where hygiene is important.
“We talk often about the concept of smart, connected and automated buildings for greater convenience, energy efficiency and lower costs,” said Darren Blankenship, AVP, Vertical Market Development. “In the future, the smart building will also be defined by its levels of hygiene and infection control. Wherever infection protection is a top priority, people feel safer, welcome, and comfortable.”
The top five critical points identified in this ebook where hygiene is important are:
When entering through the main entrance
Interior access points
When opening and closing doors
When entering non-public areas
For large flows of people or crowds
dormakaba’s Touchless Solutions eBook offers additional details about surface and building hygiene needs and documents related behaviors of people as a result of today’s heightened cleanliness awareness. It also shows what contactless passage through a building that is as hygienic as possible might look like. Finally, it introduces specific solutions buildings can integrate to reduce surface contact using touch-free and barrier-free access solutions.
