SALTO introduces paper and wooden key cards to reduce plastic use and waste

SALTO Systems, a leading manufacturer of electronic access control solutions, is proud to announce the latest addition to its family of carriers: Eco Key Card – a paper-based and wooden alternative carrier to single-use plastic key cards.

Hoteliers are increasingly moving toward more environmentally friendly guest services in an effort to reduce their carbon-footprint and to accommodate guests who are also becoming increasingly environmentally conscious.

Made from wood fibre, SALTO’s naturally textured paper card is lightweight yet incredibly durable. Wooden key cards have proven to be equally durable when compared with the traditional plastic key card, but, unlike plastic, wood is a renewable and biodegradable resource. Besides being a green option in sustainability, wooden or paper key cards can also impress hotel guests with their aesthetic appeal.

Made to the same thickness as an existing key card, SALTO’s environmentally friendlier card looks and feels the same as a plastic card. SALTO wooden key cards are made of bamboo, which is durable and ecologically sustainable, and birch, an ultra-flat wood ideal for offering a plastic-free solution to key cards.

Zero Plastic: Made entirely from recycled FSC-certified paper or bamboo, SALTO’s eco-friendly key cards contain 0% plastic while maintaining 100% of their structural integrity.

Biodegradable cards: The quality, size and durability is so similar to a PVC carrier, the paper-based key cards are an excellent option for hospitality.

Dimensions: Size:85.5mm x 54mm, Thickness:0.76mm – 0.85mm

Fully Compatible: The wooden key cards are durable, reusable, and easy to use. Just like traditional PVC key cards, the SALTO eco-friendly key cards have a top-quality NXP Ultralight C RFID chip embedded within the card that is fully compatible with SALTO smart locks.

Customizable option: The wooden key cards are available in 3 different bamboo finishes, from light to dark, and the paper key cards can be branded with your logo if required.
