ASSA ABLOY Unveils Safer2Open Solutions

Sept. 29, 2020

ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas introduced its Safer2Open suite of hands-free solutions. Available across a variety of products, mechanical and electromechanical, these solutions can reduce touchpoints without compromising functionality in a range of facilities, including health care, education, office buildings and other high-traffic spaces where decreasing the spread of germs is essential to public safety.

“As the economy begins to reopen, there’s a surging need and demand for facilities to employ new approaches that enable healthier environments,” says Mark Duato, executive vice president, Aftermarket at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas. “From low-touch to completely touchless automated openings, ASSA ABLOY’s Safer2Open solutions include a range of cost-effective and low- to high-tech options for a myriad of facilities’ doors, from entrance to exit.”

Many state and local COVID-19 protocols recommend reducing the number of touchpoints in a facility, along with additional cleaning and sanitizing protocols. Safer2Open products provide quick-to-implement solutions that can withstand rigorous cleaning cycles to align with these recommendations and improve facility safety as organizations adapt to this new normal.
