Electronic access control solutions manufacturer SALTO Systems, and BioCote, an antimicrobial technology supplier, have added antimicrobial technology to the new SALTO Neo Cylinder Range. As a result, SALTO and BioCote offer buildings increased protection against microbes to support a cleaner and more hygienic environment.
The new SALTO Neo Cylinder is a compact smart door lock cylinder equipped with state-of-the art wireless access control design technology. It is designed to provide smarter building management and can be installed on doors where fitting an electronic escutcheon is not normally possible or required, including standard doors, server racks, gates, cabinets, electric switches, sliding doors, and more.
For nearly a decade, SALTO, in partnership with BioCote, has incorporated antimicrobial silver ion technology in its smart electronic lock range and in supporting product hardware like the new SALTO Neo electronic cylinder range.
By introducing BioCote antimicrobial technology to the SALTO Neo cylinder range, SALTO helps to support a cleaner and more hygienic environment. This is of particular importance in healthcare applications or any public or shared space setting by improving the hygiene of common touchpoints and helping to prevent cross-contamination of microbes.
BioCote is an antimicrobial agent that contains silver-ions which are engineered to provide continuous, built-in protection on SALTO product surfaces and hardware devices like the XS4 smart door lock range, SALTO Neo electronic cylinders, XS4 locker locks, and SALTO wall readers. It works by binding with microbes and damaging their cells in a number of ways, disrupting their normal functions and preventing them from reproducing.
