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.
