Detectamet's new coloured swipe card holders increase the ability to identify the right people in the right location, and improve food safety.
December 17, 2013 (Newswire) - Security is of constant concern in the food industry. Restricting access to sensitive and high risk areas not only protects a company's integrity, but it also protects the food products, the consumer and of course the company's brand reputation.
The heart of the swipe card holder concept is security. By offering a means of identifying the holder helps to assure the observer and protect the business.
Swipe Card access systems are a popular, simple and effective way to control access into and within any commercial buildings in the food and pharmaceutical industries. A simple swipe or proximity card is presented to a card reader located outside the door and the card is read by the reader to instruct the unlocking of the door for a predetermined time.
Such industries need to control access to certain areas of the process where their products are particularly vulnerable to accidental or even deliberate contamination.
Latest upgrades to the Detectamet range of detectable swipe card holders now offer more security and more convenience benefits to users. The positioning of the lanyard attachment points allow the holders to be used for either upright or horizontal swipe cards. The choice of colours has now been increased to eight which means that companies can incorporate them into a workable system of worker/workplace restriction providing an immediate visual indication of the wrong person in the wrong area of work. This can prevent cross contamination from 'dirty' to high risk areas. They can also be used to identify people in the plant such as outside visitors.
These sturdy card holders are resilient, and detectable by both metal and X-ray systems so that accidental loss into the production process can be identified by the company's standard detection systems.
The Detectamet Detectable Swipe Card Holder holds standard sized cards up to 55mm x 87mm which leaves room for engraving further identity systems such as sequential numbering, naming, branding and tailored systems to satisfy unique requirements. The eight colours are each available in standard packs of 25.
