A simple solution to the COVID-19 doorknob dilemma

In shared workplaces where efforts are being made to avoid the spread of COVID-19, one of the biggest challenges are the surfaces which are frequently touched by multiple people. Turns out that the lowly doorknob is the biggest culprit and ironically, the lowly Kleenex is the solution. The worst doorknobs are invariably those on washrooms (when you gotta go you gotta go). Unless these are being disinfected after every use, touching them is kind of like playing Russian roulette. Disinfecting them after every use is just not practical. A simple approach is to tape a box of Kleenex above the doorknobs (inside and out). Every time you go to grab a doorknob the Kleenex box is staring you right in the face to remind you NOT to grab that doorknob! As a cautionary note, this solution is not viewed as a replacement for regular disinfection. It is to supplement regular disinfection.

On a related note, we decided to go one step further at our facility and we replaced the washroom doorknobs with levers to which we added copper cladding. This was done to further hedge our bets based on some anecdotal evidence that COVID-19 does not like copper (https://www.insider.com/does-copper-kill-germs-and-viruses).
 
I hope this information is helpful. Stay safe.

Cansec Oops Warranty

You know how some days everything goes great and other days nothing seems to be going your way. We all have bad days occasionally. Like perhaps you are installing one of Cansec’s controllers and you happen to drop the circuit board. The law of Selective Gravity dictates that it will fall on the corner and break.

Or maybe, in spite of your highly honed installation skills, a stray piece of wire shorts out a track or two on a circuit board resulting in its demise.

With everyone else’s product, that honest mistake will cost you. But now, with Cansec’s Oops Warranty, your day will be a bit brighter because we have your back. Just let us know that you are sending back a product under the Oops Warranty, give us an Oops PO for the replacement product and we will send you an advance replacement. We will even pick up the standard shipping costs. When we receive the broken product, we will issue a credit against the Oops PO.

The Oops Warranty only applies to Cansec manufactured products and is valid for 30 days from the date the product was shipped. It goes into effect August 1, 2015.

And don’t forget, Cansec manufactured products still carry an industry leading 5 year warranty.
