Electronic Locks with eco-friendly packaging – 100% recyclable
At Omnitec we continue to be firmly committed to the reduction of the impact generated by our activity on the environment. With this purpose, we have developed a 100% recyclable packaging, made exclusively of cardboard, for the new SmartPass range of electronic hotel locks.
During the phase of conception and development of the range of SmartPass electronic hotel locks, one of the fundamental aspects considered was the correct management of waste on installation.
Based on this premise, from the start, the use of the usual synthetic materials in packaging such as polyurethanes, preformed plastics, foams, etc. was ruled out … in short, all material difficult to recycle was ruled out.
Another fundamental aspect to be considered was facilitating the management of these waste materials for the hotel and minimizing the economic cost that it could involve. In many of the countries to which Omnitec exports our electronic hotel locks, recycling is a very serious matter and the rates per kg that must be paid at the recycling centre vary substantially depending on the type of material.
Using packaging with a minimal waste management cost assures the hotel that its acquisition costs are not undermined by expenses incurred during adaption and set-up.
At Omnitec we are very satisfied offering this proposal of value, which has nothing to do with the technology of electronic locks, but has been very well received, both by our distributors and by the hotels that have already installed SmartPass electronic locks.
Finally, at Omni-blog, we want to congratulate our R+D team and encourage them to continue innovating and implementing improvements so that the comfort transcends beyond the rooms in the hotels equipped with Omnitec.
