Mayflex installs thermal cameras at head office against COVID-19 threat

Mayflex, a specialist in the distribution of converged IP platforms including best-in-class infrastructure, networking, and electronic security systems, announced that it has installed the Thermal Elevated Temperature Screening Solutions from Hikvision to improve the health and safety of its employees and visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The installed Hikvision system works by automatically checking the individual's forehead skin temperature in real-time as employees pass by, maintaining a 2m gap in accordance with UK Government social distancing advice. If a person is over a normal temperature threshold, an audible and visual alarm is given and they will be asked to verify their body temperature using a medical thermometer.

James Vian, technical and training manager for Mayflex, explained, "The temperature screening solution has been installed in our main reception as well as the warehouse entrances at both the head office and our Environ House warehouse. The system includes the Hikvision Thermographic Bullet and Turret Cameras with the addition of the Hikvision Blackbody Calibrator that increases the accuracy of the readings from ±0.5oC to ±0.3oC."

If in the future face masks become mandatory, the system can also verify if a visitor or employee is wearing a mask.

Andy Cooper, supply chain director at Mayflex, added, “It’s a non-contact means of quickly and consistently measuring the skin temperature of a person’s forehead, whilst maintaining social distancing in line with current government guidelines. In doing so, we can reduce the likelihood of someone with an elevated temperature coming into contact with other building occupants. This also reduces the possibility of losing an entire shift for 14 days, ensuring that we can deliver on our customers’ needs even in these challenging times.”

Cooper concluded, “It gives me confidence that we are doing everything we can to ensure the wellbeing of staff and protecting the business during the Coronavirus Pandemic”

Working together with VARs, installers, integrators, and specifiers, Mayflex says it provides support through pre-sales, product selection, commercial flexibility and technical know-how to enable the delivery of converged systems which provide businesses with scalable, cost-effective and reliable IP-based communications networks and building management systems. The distributor's supply partners are made up of some of the ‘best in class’ manufacturers in the market today, including Excel, Hikvision, Mist, Axis, Avigilon, Paxton, MOBOTIX, CPI, Fluke, RF Code, Veracity, Suprema, Wavestore and Overland Storage.

Hikvision is among the world's top manufacturers of security products, which are distributed by Mayflex in the UK. For further details on the deployed thermal solution and more, contact Mayflex’s dedicated security sales team by email at: [email protected]
