New Haven, Conn. – ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions has announced an expanded version of its 360° virtual tour, which “provides an immersive, interactive experience to illustrate the vital role of door security and access control in education and healthcare settings,” according to a company release.

The ASSA ABLOY 360° Virtual Tour takes users on a digital walk through a university setting, a K-12 school and a hospital.

“From the outside of the building to every type of room and door inside, the tour features informative learning opportunities with information detailing which access solutions are best suited to each unique situation,” the company announcement says.

“There is no one-size-fits-all approach to facility security,” says Jeremy Saline, Sr. Director of Business Development, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas, in the press release. “Each setting has its own set of challenges and unique solutions, from the types of rooms to the doors, locks, and the multiple ways in which to manage access within each type of facility.”

The Virtual Tour “walks visitors through best practices for managing access to education and healthcare settings, reflecting recent shifts due to major technological advancements as well as environmental situations, such as COVID-19 and school attack scenarios,” the company announcement says.

  • Healthcare: This virtual tour highlights the growing trend of low- or no-touch access with paddle-type trim and door arm and foot pulls; touchless wave-to-open sensors; and electronic access control (EAC) solutions that trigger automatic door openers.
  • K-12: Solutions range from indicator locks that show if a classroom door is locked to electronic access control locks that enable centralized or local lockdown, allowing teachers to respond safely in the event of an emergency.
  • University: This section is focused on providing access to the right people in the right locations through electronic access and mobile credentialing. With vast campuses, large numbers of students and staff, and many buildings to manage, the right access tools are critical to maintaining safety and security.

“Being able to visualize these solutions opens up a whole new world to school and hospital administrators,” says Saline in the ASSA Abloy press release. “Ultimately, this isn’t about ‘locking down’ facilities. It’s about providing solutions that give educators and healthcare providers peace of mind so they can solely focus on their main tasks of teaching students and caring for patients.”
