New antimicrobial access devices kill bacteria

Deeside, Flintshire (UK)

Contamination of clean environments could soon become a thing of the past, as Remsdaq launches its Entropad range of access control readers, keypads and request to exit buttons with antimicrobial protection built in.

Third party testing to ISO 22196:2011 proves the high-rated coating on the new Entropad devices kills up to 99.99% of E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria over a 24-hour period. This makes the Entropad range ideal for use in access-controlled areas in hospitals, laboratories, surgeries, food manufacturing & preparation companies.

Robin Koffler, sales and marketing director at Remsdaq says: “Without antimicrobial protection, access control devices can become a breeding ground for a wide range of highly infectious bacteria. Every card reader, keypad or request to exit button touched by an infected person becomes a virtual petri dish, incubating and potentially distributing bacteria to anybody who comes into contact with the device next. The new Entropad access control devices help to eliminate this issue, reducing sick days caused by bacteria transmission and preserving the integrity of secure environments.”

System agnostic, the Entropad range is designed to work with any Wiegand-compatible access control system, including the Remsdaq Entro range of 2-door and 8-door controllers. An OSDP version will be made available later in the year.
