Upgrading security at lifestyle estate

Issue 8 2023 Access Control & Identity Management

Lifestyle estates are often located in out-of-town settings, and living away from the hustle and bustle of the city can be conducive to a relaxing lifestyle. However, it requires a high level of security to keep residents secure. The Clara Anna Fontein Lifestyle Estate is a premier multi-generational security estate nestled on the remote slopes of Durbanville Hills in Cape Town.

Turnstar CEO Craig Sacks says, “Working closely with security personnel to enhance safety and implementing the ideal solution, we prioritised the security and well-being of residents by using the optimal access control measures. This upgrade to their system included four Velocity Raptors, with recessed spike barriers and stainless steel cabinets that ensure safety and improve traffic flow at the estate.

The solution’s advanced features provide secure vehicle access and a visual deterrent to criminals, ensuring the highest level of security for the Clara Anna Fontein Estate. The spike barriers are capable of puncturing the tyres of a vehicle attempting to gain unauthorised entry and are quick enough to ensure high-speed access without the build-up of traffic jams.

The barrier is fitted with the innovative OPTIC LED barrier arm, which provides visibility for drivers and pedestrians. This feature significantly reduces the risk of accidents and improves overall safety, making it an essential addition to any modern access control solution.
