Good news for Carolina Panthers fans as the team will welcome back a limited number of fans to Bank of America Stadium for the first time this season.
For the team’s second home game, the organization has been working hard to make the environment safer for fans through a number of operational and technological initiatives.
The Panthers are working with Honeywell to create PPE packs and deploy air quality monitoring solutions. The air quality monitoring solutions are deployed through a Honeywell’s Healthy Buildings dashboard which gives facilities managers real-time information on the carbon dioxide levels, temperature, and humidity in the stadium – all critical parts to keeping fans and safe.
“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 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 are part of a comprehensive effort to innovate solutions that help critical sectors of the global economy recover, without the need to replace existing infrastructure. 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.
