Videx launches new touch-free entry range to help the NHS

hands-free door entry and exit buttons help services return to normal after COVID-19 lockdown

The Videx touch-free door entry and exit buttons will help to reduce the spread of infection in health and care settings

For more than 35 years, Videx has manufactured door entry and access control solutions and has now launched its latest range of touch-free entry panels and exit buttons.

The products are designed to help the NHS in opening up specific services and treatments again as the UK continues in its efforts to bring the coronavirus pandemic under control.

The range offers both exit buttons and entrance panels in a touch-free format using infrared sensor technology, providing a no-touch solution for companies as they focus on creating a COVID-19-secure environment for staff, patients and visitors.

Neil Thomas, national sales manager at Videx, said: “As we return to normal, health and safety remains the key priority.

“With our touch-free entry panels, visitors can alert someone of their arrival without needing to press a button.

“The panels can also include proximity access control, allowing authorised personnel to enter the building touch free, which is particularly useful for hospitals and GP surgeries.

The range uses infrared sensor technology

“Both surface and flush exit buttons are also available to allow users to exit without the need to press buttons.”

The panels and exit buttons are compatible with a number of Videx systems, including its IP system, two wire video kits, and the leading GSM kit.

They are for internal use unless appropriately protected externally and boast several key features including adjustable activation range (3cm-15cm) and activation time (from 0.5 seconds to 20 seconds).

All panels are IP55 rated and require a power input of 12Vdc. They can operate in a temperature change from -20 degrees to 75 degrees.

Thomas said: “The new touch-free range can offer better protection against COVID-19 transmission and other viruses that can spread from touching common-use surfaces and devices.

“We can also provide fully-customised options, offering bespoke entry panels and exit buttons that are in keeping with the surroundings of the building, whether that’s a specific hospital ward, GP surgeries, or dental practices.”
