Touch-Free Working


Philip Dowds, Managing Director at OKTO Technologies comments; "Never before has the public need been more focused on feeling safe and protected in the work environment. We fast-tracked the launch of our OKTOair system as a result of Covid-19 because we feel it will have a positive and helpful impact for businesses across the country as they reopen their doors. The demand from commercial landlords has been significant, as the need to reassure tenants and customers that their premises are safe is great.

There has been a definite shift in air filtration from just heating and cooling to a focus on ‘Indoor Air Quality’ and systems that include cleaning and monitoring of the air. When you consider that we spend 90% of our time indoors being exposed to air which is typically five times more polluted than outdoors, it is absolutely vital to consider the impacts on our health and how we can improve it. In the midst of the most densely populated and polluted city centres, where floor space is at a premium, our solutions offer optimum control, comfort, health, wellbeing and ultimately, peace of mind."


  • Touch-Free Technology
    OKTO's touch-free technology is the simplest, most intuitive and hygienic form of control, enabling staff and visitors to travel from the lobby of a building through to their offices and meeting rooms without having to touch a single surface. Doors will open for staff using facial recognition and near-field technology, the technology used in contactless cards and bluetooth devices. In the lifts, automatic lift management and voice control will take staff and visitors to their desired floor without the need to touch a button. Combining voice control, mobile devices and facial recognition provides office workers with a layered 3 stage security process, ensuring the safest, most secure environment possible.
  • Thermal Scanners
    OKTO Technologies' thermal scanners and facial recognition cameras at the entrance of a building safeguard against the spread of the virus by allowing only healthy, virus free employees to enter the premises. OKTO's discrete, next generation AI thermal body temperature and facial recognition detection entry system operates using a simple automated ‘Green-Go’– ‘Red-Stop’ indicator, based on a person’s external temperature reading.


  • Air Filtration
    With Covid-19 particles remaining airborne and infectious for up to 3 hours, OKTOair protects the workforce against lingering particles and provides consistent clean, fresh air. Thanks to its groundbreaking filter system, OKTOair has been proven in testing to remove a proxy virus for SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes Covid-19) from the air with 99.98% elimination within 10 minutes and 100% in 45 minutes. The filters can remove particulates including harmful contagions, allergens and pathogens down to 0.007microns, (10x smaller than the Coronavirus and 40x smaller than can be filtered by the perceived industry leading HEPA filters). In addition to filtration, OKTOair purifies the air using electronic disinfection techniques to kill even the smallest bacteria or viruses, ensuring the levels of indoor air pollution are diminished. Artificial Intelligence technology then automatically ventilates and cleans the air whilst constantly monitoring air quality to maintain ideal conditions.

    The OKTOair system is powered by Healthway, the world's leading air filtration company with over forty years of experience in supplying superior indoor air quality (IAQ) to commercial office buildings, hotels, hospitals, schools and universities around the world.

  • Wellness Lighting
    OKTO's 'Human Centric Lighting' system can be implemented within the office space to help to regulate the body’s circadian rhythm and improve the health and wellbeing of employees. Controlled lighting scenes matched to the colour temperature of external light suited to the time of day, can keep our body clock in its natural rhythm. Doing so can positively impact vital biological functions such as sleep, hormone levels, body temperature and metabolism.


  • Window Coverings & Technology
    Window coverings are more than simple aesthetics. Research shows employees exposed to natural light are more motivated and productive in the workplace. Sunlight exposure boosts serotonin, regulates appetite, sleep, memory and mood, and window treatments can help you create the ideal lighting conditions for long term health. OKTO Technologies can manage window coverings to encompass temperature regulation, silent track mechanisms and light & UV light protection, to maximise the wellness and safety of a building's occupants.
