Controlling pedestrian traffic

clip_image002Regulating and controlling foot flow through entrance and exit points can be managed by a turnstile system. This effective pedestrian-managed solution also cuts down on the need for manned monitoring.

So which turnstile system would be suitable for your site? There is a choice of systems available, depending on the level of security required. Here we give you an overview of our turnstile range and the application suited.

Full height turnstiles
Full height turnstiles can be fitted into a perimeter security system, which can be effective for creating staff checkpoints as well as managing pedestrian traffic. Suited for external use, full height turnstiles are used within industrial and commercial properties, and can also be found at amusements and sporting facilities.

Half height turnstiles
clip_image004Half height turnstiles, also known as waist-height turnstiles, are an effective solution for controlling pedestrian traffic in public areas. Turnstiles can be configured to work with limited space to guide visitors or employees in the correct direction, in addition to protecting secured areas.

Half height turnstiles are an ideal solution for offices, libraries and leisure facilities, and can be controlled using a range of methods incorporating existing access controlled areas, as well as monitoring staff and visitor movements.

Why your property will benefit from intercom security

clip_image002Internal communication systems can go a long way to helping your business or home more secure. The type which suits your needs best depends on whether you need to admit visitors regularly or if it’s simply a closed site.

Anyone can walk into your property if you have an open door policy, the risks of which could pose a direct threat to your home or business, with you being unaware of who is in your building at any time. To prevent this, many companies or home owners choose to fit door security. Using an intercom system will manage who you give access to, enabling you to be aware of who is on your property at any time.

There are different models of intercoms out there; audio intercoms and video intercoms are generally the models that are more popular and effective.

clip_image004Intercoms don’t just improve security, they can also be used around the property to communicate. Another benefit of intercom is that there is no need for a receptionist to be at front of house at all times.

By increasing the security of your property potential insurance costs could also be improved by taking into account the lengths you have gone to protect your business or home, and acknowledgement of precautions being taken to prevent the targeting of any property and equipment.
