NEW ANTIMICROBIAL-PROTECTED ACCESS
CONTROL DEVICES KILL 99.9 PER CENT OF
Contamination of clean environments could soon become a thing of the past,
as Remsdaq launches 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 & preparation companies.
Robin Ko ler, 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.”
System agnostic, the EntroPad range
is designed to work with any Wiegandcompatible
access control system,
including the Remsdaq Entro range
of 2-door and 8-door controllers. An
OSDP version will be made available
later in the year.

profiles than timber or concrete fence posts, making it up to six-times more
space e icient. DuraPost is compatible with a wide range of fence panels and
virtually any onsite fencing.
Aesthetically, DuraPost is available in a choice of profiles, Classic and
