DeCurtis Corporation Enters the Education Sector with DeCurtis Shield™ at Cape Henry Collegiate

DeCurtis Corporation continues its expansion into the education sector with DeCurtis Shield™ deployed at Cape Henry Collegiate in Virginia Beach, Virginia, enhancing the health, safety and security of staff, students and visitors on campus. Cape Henry Collegiate will operate DeCurtis Shield™ Kiosks to automate the temperature screening process as part of its new health and safety initiative due to COVID-19.

“We needed a temperature screening solution that would accurately assess temperature regardless of the environmental elements,” said Sarah William, Director of Operations, Cape Henry Collegiate. “A manual process is time-consuming and would not provide the accurate readings we wanted. We are thrilled with our choice of using DeCurtis Shield™.”

Kiosks are used at necessary entry and exit points on campus to seamlessly screen for elevated body temperature. DeCurtis Shield™ Kiosks will assess temperature using smart thermography cameras at the brain thermal tunnel with a patent-pending methodology to provide the fastest and most accurate body temperature. Each DeCurtis Shield™ Kiosks accurately processes approximately 600 individuals an hour and is a crucial piece of the school’s new health and safety protocols due to COVID-19.

Since early July, three DeCurtis Shield™ Kiosks have seamlessly processed 1000 students daily in 30 minutes before entering the campus. “We are thrilled to launch DeCurtis Shield™ at Cape Henry Collegiate to assist in providing a healthier environment for all who enter the campus,” said Camille Olivere, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing, DeCurtis Corporation. “Our configurable solution met the requirements requested by the school administrators and does so with minimal disruption to the regular school day. More importantly, we are honored to provide peace of mind to the staff, students and parents.”
