The arrival of Covid-19 has changed life as we know it. The challenges that we are all facing are distressing, unfamiliar and they are going to be around for some time yet.
We are aiming to support where we can and have been exploring options to help adjust to life with Covid-19.




Scientists believe the virus that causes COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person and one of the main causes of this pandemic is surface transmission.

If you have come into contact with a surface where someone has sneezed, coughed, or touched, you can then transfer the virus to yourself by touching your face. The virus can live on surfaces for up to 2 to 3 days





Entrances are high traffic areas, where numerous people could leave traces of the virus. We believe fitting a retro kit to your existing door will really help to reduce the spread.

From installing a new automatic door to supplying a retro fit kit to an existing manual door. We can help make your workplace a safer and healthier environment.

We have many solutions, that include:

  • Automated aluminium doors.
    Retro fit automation kits.
    Touchless switch.
    Flow control.
    Access control.
    One way activation systems.


Retro fit automation kits


ADC can easily automate your internal or external doors by fitting a powered swing operator to any solid door type, such as composite, timber or aluminium door.

A retro kit fit will make the door open automatically on approach, or by simply waving your hand in front of a remote contactless pad. With Covid-19 this can stop the potential spread of contamination, as the user will not have to touch any parts to enter or exit a building.

This installation will fully comply with legislation and will offer you a safe way to continue to operate during these difficult times.



Touchless Switch


Bacteria and viruses are mainly transmitted through the hands. When the door handle turns into a germ spreader, this is a problem for companies, especially in the hygiene sector.

The BLS 60-REL can be easily and quickly installed as a surface or flush-mounted version in place of a common switch system.

The detection range is adjustable from 15-80 cm and is a great device for hospitals, residential care homes, schools, colleges, universities, and any food processing industry.



Flow Control



Flow control is a great device for public buildings, supermarkets, petrol stations, post offices, and corner shops.
This device will control the flow of people into a building.

The system monitors the number of people in the building and automatically deactivates the entrance door when the limit is reached, this will also relieve all these entrances from being monitored by employees of the building.




Access Control



Access Control is a great device for schools, colleges, universities, hospitals, and office buildings. Not only can it be used for restricting the public from entering your facility.

Access Control can allow a secure shield for temperature screening, monitoring time and attendance, safety fire roll calls, and another benefit is extended reporting.

With each person having an individual access card, this will reduce the contamination from human to human.



One way activation systems



You are most likely to find doors with one way systems at airports, railway stations, or sensitive areas inside buildings.

However now with social distancing, we think that these systems will be very useful in reducing the spread of the virus in any building that it is practical to use.

The-one way activation system prevents unauthorized access from public areas to restricted zones. Any attempt to cross flip flows in the unauthorized direction is recognized by an intelligent sensor system and triggers an alarm.
