As technology continues to advance and become more affordable, more and more organizations are using proximity cards for access control and identification security.
With proximity cards there is an embedded antenna and electronic chip that holds information about the company or cardholder. Because of this embedded technology it’s important that the cards are held in ways that can prevent breakage. This is why many choose not to hole punch their technology cards. If done incorrectly, the internal technology will be permanently damaged.
Grippers for Proximity Cards
There are several hole punching alternatives. One of those is known as a “gripper.” These accessories grip the card using what is called a friction fit . Here are some of the benefits:
- Reliability – Grippers are made with long lasting materials. They are produced with quality plastics and have no moving parts. They are also great for preventing damage to your ID card. You can completely forget about hole punching when you’re using a gripper.
- Security – Grippers are sturdy. They can hold up to 5 lbs or vertical resistance and more than 5 lbs of horizontal resistance.
- Economical – They are very affordable. They can be used as a stand along accessory or in conjunction with any other attachment like lanyards, badge reels, etc.
