by Brianna Crandall — March 26, 2021 — Dortronics Systems, a Sag Harbor, New York-based provider of off-the-shelf and customized door control solutions, recently announced two products designed to help facilities managers (FMs) implement fast and highly cost-effective solutions to help combat the spread of infection — the 5278 Touchless Proximity Switch and the 6612 Request to Exit Motion Sensing Door Release.
Bryan Sanderford, national sales manager, Dortronics Systems, pointed out:
Door surfaces, including handles, bars, and knobs are vulnerable areas for disease transmission. Our touchless door control solutions deliver a convenient and extremely cost-effective way to help keep people safe from infections and viruses such as Covid-19.
5278 Touchless Proximity Switch
Dortronics’ 5278 Touchless Proximity Switch or “wave” switch utilizes optical infrared technology, and the imbedded sensors pick up motion within a 4” range. A simple wave of the hand activates the switch. No hand contact is required.
The illuminated LED ring allows for visibility under low-light conditions. A red LED signifies standby mode and turns green when activated.
6612 Request to Exit Motion Sensing Door Release
The company’s 6612 Request to Exit Motion Sensing Door Release offers fast, accurate detection with easy field adjustments, plus adjustable long- and short-range detection and sensitivity controls to assure maximum reliability and immunity to false activations.
The slim design allows mounting of the unit inconspicuously above any door.
