Benefits of Touchless Entry to Avoid Germ Transfer

Move over icky handles and pushing to enter, touchless door hardware is here to stay! It’s estimated nearly 38% of the U.S. population is fully vaccinated from COVID-19, which is excellent news, but the pandemic changed the way patrons enter commercial properties. Touchless door hardware and security access control are now in high demand for your customers, employees and vendors to feel safe when they access your business. 

As more and more businesses look for ways to operate in a more hygienic and healthy way, the demand for contactless entry will continue to grow because there are too many benefits to count.

Decreased Bacteria

According to researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder, the average person’s hand carries more than 3,000 bacteria from at least 100 species. A year ago we talked about ways to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria by using touchless hardware, which cuts down on the spread of future viruses. Savvy business owners are mindful of germ transfer more than ever before. 

No Hands!

A recent study from Magid revealed 64% of consumers would consider visiting restaurants sooner if automatic doors were installed. Hands free used to go hand in hand with busy employees on the phone, customers with shopping bags or vendors with a delivery — but today we’re focused on staying healthy. As an added bonus, most touchless door activation options are also Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant. 


When security and discretion is a primary factor, a touchless access control system is the best solution. Whether it’s operated by a key fob, proximity card or IP-based controls, these contactless access systems are linked to a security system that dictates who can and cannot enter. In addition, a company with a strong security culture will value not only their own security but also their customers.

Vortex’s knowledgeable team can help you navigate deciding which touchless entry option is right for you and your business. Request your free estimate here or contact us at 800-698-6783.

Thanks a bunchScott F. ★★★★☆ Vortex is very responsive to service calls but often falls short when it comes to getting quotes for work to be preformed. And they do like to put their decals/stickers on yours doors. They have Push/Pulls ones they will often use, but it's really just a marketing trick as it also has their name and phone number listed. As long as they don't leave those decals at my locations I'll continue to use them for service. They are my go to repair service for doors, etc.Jessica R. ★★★★★ Tony B. Stephen and Taylor came to fix my company's door this morning and they are amazing! so professional and quickjs_loader
