Environmental specialist Filta Group is supporting caterers to maintain hygiene standards when they reopen with the launch of Thermo Guard temperature screening stations.
The Thermo Guard Solo and Thermo Guard Hi-Flow offer non-contact measurement to avoid physical contact, protecting staff and other customers.
The Solo, available as a counter stand, short stand (60cm), tall stand (100cm) or wall-mounted model, take the temperature of one person every two seconds to enable steady and safe traffic into restaurants and other venues.
The Hi-Flow model, with simple set-up included from Filta Group, offers fast screening of up to 30 people per second.
All models offer accurate and reliable temperature detection without contact, as well as simple and clear alarms to notify upon detection.
Set-up is included, with no onsite IT support or connection required, whilst intuitive technology ensures minimal operator training is required.
Edward Palin, commercial director at Filta Group, said: “Keeping public spaces as safe as possible is vital to avoid a ‘stop-start’ lockdown situation. Overseas, we have seen track and trace drill down to specific premises.
“With approximately 60% of Covid-19 cases reporting a heightened-temperature, fever-screening systems such as the Thermo Guard provide an added layer of protection. The Thermo Guard technology is reliable, intuitive and easy-to-operate, and does not tie up staff time to operate”.
“It is not an all-encompassing solution, of course, it should be used alongside government-mandated hygiene measures both front-of-house and back-of-house. Thermo Guard helps protect staff, customers and the operator whilst giving extra visibility to paying guests of the hygiene measures being taken – something which is going to be a requirement now and for quite some-time in the future.”
Mr Palin said the industry has already seen the impact that the threat of regional lockdowns, such as that which has been imposed in Leicester, could have on businesses.
“It is paramount that caterers take the necessary precautions and introduce added detection measures where possible,” he added.
