Our Services : Access Control

Access Control enables you to control who has access to your building at any time.

Locks and keys allow you to secure your building, but when keys are lost or stolen, the inconvenience and expense of changing locks and re-issuing keys can be considerable. Keys may also be copied, creating even more security risks; likewise it is common in buildings that are secured by locks and keys for doors to be left unlocked all day. This weakness provides the possibility of opportunist theft and malicious damage.

An Access Control system provides flexible security and control over when and who is authorised to enter a site or building. The solutions we supply can cater from one door up to hundreds across multiple sites, making sure your staff, buildings, sites and assets are secure at all times. We are confident with the systems we provide that we have the appropriate solutions that will fit and suit any needs you have.

Electronic Access Control provides the most efficient and convenient way of securing your building and assets. Installing an Access Control system may mean that you never have to change a lock again. Tokens or cards are issued to allow access through the controlled doors, and are easily barred from the system if they are lost, stolen or just not returned by someone who leaves your Company. Barred tokens will not allow access through the controlled doors.

Once an Access Control system is installed, all doors controlled by the system will automatically lock when the door is closed. Anyone without a PIN or access token/ card is unable to enter. If necessary, doors may be set to unlock during a designated time frame.

Access Control can also offer flexible control over users’ access rights. For example, all staff can gain access through the main door of a building, but access to internal areas may be restricted to those who have a specific need to be there. Access may also be restricted by time, only granting access to particular users at certain times of day or night.

Connection to new and existing systems may be required such as Fire Alarm intergration to release all doors in the event of fire or Intruder Alarm intergration to restrict access to areas, rooms or entire building when the Intruder Alarm system is armed.

The huge range of products we have available for access control means we are able to provide solutions from 1 to 100 doors with no restriction on the scale, size or location of the premises.
