Honeywell announced that it is currently working with the NFL’s Carolina Panthers to create a safer stadium experience by offering individual personal protective equipment (PPE) packs for Panthers fans and staff, as well as deploying air quality monitoring solutions, via a custom real-time Healthy Buildings dashboard.
The Healthy Buildings dashboard will help the Panthers’ facilities staff “quickly identify and correct critical building controls issues”, including air quality factors such as carbon dioxide levels, temperature and humidity, Honeywell said.
The Honeywell dashboard integrates into existing systems within the stadium, giving the Panthers’ facilities staff a comprehensive and upgraded view of building conditions prior to people entering the stadium. The dashboard can be expanded to include other indicators such as occupancy and cleaning tracking, Honeywell added.
“Honeywell is a world leader in developing solutions for venues and events, and we couldn’t be more pleased to partner with them in our efforts to ensure the game day experience is as safe as possible for everyone at Bank of America Stadium,” said Tom Glick, president of Tepper Sports and Entertainment. “Our operations team has worked around the clock for months to develop and implement a responsible and comprehensive plan, and Honeywell has been an integral part of those preparations.”
In addition to continuously monitoring the air quality within the stadium, Honeywell says it is providing an added layer of safety to fans entering the stadium via custom PPE kits. The disposable Honeywell Safety Packs, branded for the Carolina Panthers, include masks, hand gel and cleaning wipes. The Safety Packs will be distributed to fans and staff upon entering the stadium.
“We’re excited to be a part of bringing fans back to the stadium in our hometown of Charlotte,” said Jeff Kimbell, Honeywell senior vice president and chief commercial officer. “We are thrilled that our work with the Panthers has helped provide a safer environment and the peace of mind needed for the players, coaches and fans to get back on the field and in the stands.”
Honeywell’s Healthy Buildings solutions provide a holistic view of a building’s health based on key factors such as indoor air quality, occupant flow, PPE analytics, thermal screening, body temperature monitoring, social distancing and sanitation efficacy.
Earlier this year, Honeywell launched an integrated set of solutions to help building owners improve the “health” of their building environments, the firm said in a release.
The aim of the new solutions is to comply with social distancing policies, and help reassure occupants that it is safe to return to the workplace.
By integrating air quality, safety and security technologies along with advanced analytics, Honeywell’s Healthy Buildings solutions are designed to help building owners minimize potential risks of contamination and ensure business continuity by monitoring both the building environment and building occupants’ behaviors, the company said.
Honeywell added that its new solutions provide building owners with more control over critical health, safety and security factors to encourage sustained compliance with changing building standards, safety guidelines, government-issued regulations and a company’s risk management policies.
