OSK develops COVID-19 turnstile

A step toward normality


Cologne, September 9, 2020 – Oliver Schrott Kommunikation has teamed up with two partner companies from North Rhine-Westphalia to develop a turnstile called SafeGate®. The fully automatic system checks a number of COVID-19 parameters and only permits access to event venues, public buildings, factories or offices once these have been met, thus providing people with the best possible protection against infection.

Be it an event location, theater, concert hall or sports venue, event organizers could previously only react to the requirements of the coronavirus pandemic with improvisations and a sizable commitment of personnel. However, three companies from the events sector have come together to create SafeGate®, an automated, mobile turnstile module for health and safety checks at the entrance to event venues and other buildings.

SafeGate® facilitates events under difficult conditions

SafeGate® automatically checks access authorization using a QR code issued via online pre-accreditation, uses a camera to ensure that guests are wearing face coverings, performs a contactless temperature check and disinfects visitors’ hands. Only after that does the high-tech gate permit access to the theater, concert, sports stadium, event venue or factory site.

SafeGate® thus delivers a reliable and efficient method for fulfilling safety and hygiene standards when running an event. SafeGate® is also fully conformant with GDPR, and records only the personal data required by law for secure contact tracing. For companies, too, the turnstile represents a straightforward and safe option for authorizing and verifying access in the COVID-19 era.
