Baby booms are no match for Besam

August 2012 Access Control & Identity Management

Assa Abloy Entrance Systems South Africa recently installed four Unislide single sliders in the baby rooms and restrooms in Nicol Way shopping Centre in Bryanston, north of Johannesburg.

“The system, which we developed in South Africa with the assistance of Security Equipment Centre, was customised to meet specialised customer needs in the baby rooms and rest rooms and to ensure safe, easy and convenient customer entrance and access for all parents and babies,” says André Aiton, MD Assa Abloy Entrance Systems.

“Due to the fact that this particular installation involves vulnerable mothers and babies, we had to install additional safety sensors inside the cubicle.” Aiton explains: “The system’s function is designed for safe and easy entry and exit via an AK-Elbow switch placed on either side of the entrance. A control system functions as soon as the customer is inside; various sensors inside the cubicle are activated to cut off the entry switch on the outside with a red LED indicating that the cubicle is now occupied.

“No one can enter the cubicle at this time, offering optimum safety and peace of mind to the occupants. To exit the cubicle, the exit switch is pressed and the LED on the entry switch will automatically turn green, indicating that the cubicle is now unoccupied.”

Aiton adds that the system has been so successful that it is in use in many of the new and larger shopping malls.
