A ‘touchless’ manual activation solution for automatic door operation from GEZE that is ideal for environments where hygiene is paramount is a major help to both mitigate health and safety risks and reduce the spread of the COVID-19 infection.
The non-contact proximity switch GC 306 meets the rigorous standards required in hospitals, laboratories, care homes and food preparation areas, and is also suitable in other buildings where ‘touch-free’ opening is desired.
Easy to install and perfect for retro-fitting the GC 306 hands-free switch totally eliminates the need for individuals to press the same spot on conventional activation switches.
Its non-contact activation can be set as required and has a range of 10 to 50 centimetres to open automatic swing, sliding, folding, revolving or curved sliding doors seamlessly.
The low voltage operation of the GC 306 conforms to radio equipment directives and can be used in the vicinity of sensitive medical equipment and IT server rooms.
Positioned at hand height, its structure permits simple and time-saving installation both in flush and surface mounted sockets. It can be fitted into walls, behind tiles, wood, plaster, plastic and glass without its activation range being affected, maximising protection from bacterial contact.
The GC 306 offers two switching modes – ‘pulse’ where the door closes automatically after the hold-open time, and ‘toggle’ where it remains open until the switch is activated again.
Said Adam Presdee, service director, of GEZE UK: “The GC 306 proximity switch is a great addition to our automatic door systems range. It provides non-contact and hygienic manual activation which is a vital to environments which require high levels of hygiene to prevent cross-contamination to patients or work areas, especially in the current climate.
We rate the switch so highly that every service technician now carries them on their van and are able to install immediately.”
