Sixways Stadium in Worcester is stepping up its security measures with a new system, in preparation for opening when the COVID-19 crisis eases.
New cutting-edge cameras using thermal screening technology will enable staff at Sixways to keep players and members of the public safe from possible health risks. The cameras can identify people with the high temperatures associated with coronavirus wishing to enter the venue, and refuse entry if necessary.
Enterprises requiring a new security system installation in Chester and Worcester can seek advice from qualified electrical contractors. Professional electricians are well versed in the latest security options available and can help businesses select a product that suits their needs.
The West Midlands stadium is home to the Worcester Warriors Rugby Football Club, who started their “return to play” schedule on June 15. This initial stage involves individual and group training while maintaining rigid social distancing.
Co-owner of the Warriors, Colin Goldring, commented:
“Having access to the leading technology on thermal screening will play a significant role in helping us to detect and protect against the key symptom of Coronavirus and ensure that we are able to reopen the stadium safely as part of our return-to-play measures.”
The infrared cameras use a combination of Artificial intelligence (AI) and thermography capable of rapidly detecting high body temperatures to deliver effective screening. The equipment is easy for staff to use and offers a quick way to analyse large queues quickly, as it can test about 900 people per hour.
