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.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Dan Sharon W.
Johnny from Vortex doors came early, quickly identified the issue and fixed it correctly. Spot on and great customer service.....
Jose D.
I had several issues with my doors at my business and Vortex came today and solved all my problems. Ray and Chris were awesome they took their time to fix all the issues and made sure the jobs done were to my standards. I have dealt with other door companies over the past 4 years and not one of them were able to solve all my problems and one of them made them worse. I am really pleased with Vortex and the Techs Ray and Chris. They even cleaned their mess!??

Our business has a loading dock with a roll up bay door. The bay door was bent off the tracks, and we found it couldn't be closed or moved up or down. Our initial call had a response time of about 30 minutes. They showed up, diagnosed the issue, and provided a fix time of 4-6 weeks.Of course we weren't delighted, but we wanted to move forward. They understood that having a bay door that didn't close was a major issue for us and they immediately began to troubleshoot, finding a solution for us. Early that next morning we had Daniel show up and said he can get us operational (door being able to open, close, and secured) within 3 hours. They finished in 2. Daniel, Phillip, and Conner made the the security of our building at Pacific Office Automation a priority for us again, and it was all done in less than 24 hours. I have nothing but good things to say about this experience.Response time was A+, problem solving was A+, and we will be using them in the future for any and all of our needs. I guess we can close the door on this one.
