Remsdaq has launched 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 integral antimicrobial protection 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 and preparation companies.

As every card reader, keypad or request to exit button touched by an infected person potentially becomes a virtual petri dish, thus incubating and potentially distributing bacteria to anybody who comes into contact with the device next this can be a problem.

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.”
