Product Care Instructions

This guide will assist you with the necessary requirements for caring for your ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions VingCard, Elsafe and Polarbar products and systems to help maintain hygiene while ensuring that they continue to function correctly.

  • Use of incorrect cleaners may result in damage to the surface
  • Be sure the cloth is only lightly dampened and not wet

  • Wipe surfaces gently. If there is a directional surface texture, wipe in the same direction as the texture
  • Soak up any spilled or excess cleaner with an absorbent cloth immediately

 Ensure that users wash their hands thoroughly after use to minimize contamination risk and to prevent allergic reactions from the use of cleaning chemicals.

RFID CARDS

Generally, RFID cards and fobs will be handled by many users. Whilst this is unavoidable, it is strongly advised that all users wash their hands thoroughly after use. For those concerned with being exposed to disease as a result of handling keycards or fobs, use of disposable antiseptic wipes may serve as an option.

 Ensure that users wash their hands thoroughly after keycard or fob use to minimize the risk of contamination.
