I chose the product as a result of searching the web. I liked the idea and the look of the guard and was NOT disappointed with the items when they arrived. They are very well made and finished well with a protective coating. The delivery was prompt within 24 hrs.

SSP Touch-free Low Profile Infra-Red Exit button with Timer

SSP No: 12724

RRP £33.00 (£39.60 inc vat)

NOW £29.88 (£35.86 inc vat)

The SSP touch-free infra-red switch is designed primarily for use in hospitals, doctors surgeries, food production plants and any other buildings where high levels of hygiene must be maintained.

Bacteria and germs can easily be spread by more than one person touching the same object. This is certainly the case for exit door buttons which are regularly used to gain entry into controlled areas of the building. However, with SSP’s touch free button, the operator simply needs to be wave his or her hand in front of the unit. Using infra-red technology the switch mechanism will be activated. If configured correctly this will release the door for a pre-determined length of time to allow the operator to pass through it (set between 0.5 and 20 seconds). When being operated, the colour around the sensor will change from red to green.

Supplied with a back box, this unit can be either surface mounted or flush mounted (if removed from back box). It is also supplied with tamper resistant security screws, to stop unauthorised people accessing it.

Set the distance range:
This infra-red touch button can sense movement up to 1metre away. The sensitivity/range can be adjusted as requested by the installer

Set the integral timer
Once a hand is waved in front of the unit this button can be set to release the door for the number of seconds that you require. For example, if the button is some distance from the door, once activated the release mechanism can set to keep the door unlocked for, say, 5 seconds to allow the person time to open the door.

Easy to replace existing buttons or switches
You can replace an existing conventional switch or push button with this unit. It can be easily retro-fitted onto an existing single gang back box.

Reliable and durable
Tested to exceed 1 million separate uses

Seen in the dark
Even in a darkened corridor, this switch discreetely lights up so it can be easily located
