How your access solution can contribute to safety in times of the coronavirus

Working to limit the spread of the coronavirus begins with access to your premises. Heras, known as the experts in perimeter protection solutions are well versed in enabling organisations to implement safe and controlled access points of entry. In this article we explain how building owners, Facility Managers or employees, can use our solutions to help limit the spread of the coronavirus.

The 2 metre society brings challenges for everyone. How do we make sure we keep enough distance and minimise spread of the virus, so that everyone can go home safely at the end of the day? More frequent cleaning, cordoning off rooms or workplaces, determining walking routes – all contribute to a safer workplace for the employee. Additionally, the security of your premises can help limit the spread of the coronavirus. Access control in particular can play an important role in this. A good access solution ensures controlled access to your site and location.

Solutions that you can deploy on your premises include:
1. Placing an electric drive on access solutions
2. Adding an access control system to the security of your premises
3. Use Connect for monitoring your location remotely

Placing electric drives on access solutions

Gates or turnstiles on your premises are often opened with a latch or push handle. These are placed on your site to allow access in a controlled way on the one hand and to keep unwanted guests outside on the other hand. If you place an electric drive on these gates, guests on your grounds no longer need to touch the handle. The gate opens and closes automatically after use. Ask about the possibilities of placing an electric drive on your gate.

Adding an access control system to the security on your premises

With the Heras Access control system, you oversee who enters your premises and when. People gain access using a mobile phone number, with this your employees, suppliers or visitors can open the gate with one simple action by calling this number from their mobile phones. You decide for yourself which times and days people are granted access. In addition, you can easily adjust the rights yourself using the online platform. This solution is ideal for enabling controlled access to your site, without visitors having to touch the gates and access solutions.

Heras also offers various communication systems (intercom, communication column) for personal verification and remote access. In addition, you can easily communicate about the guidelines on the grounds or, if necessary, do a short ‘check-up’ about the visitor’s health.

Add Connect for extra control

The control to your site can be increased even further with Connect. This allows you to remotely monitor the status of your access solutions, to see whether they are open, closed or are showing a failure. So even when you are not there, you can still keep control of your premises. Connect can be integrated into your chosen service package from Heras.
