Paarl Girls’ High School, established in 1876, is a public combined school with 800 registered learners, including Grade R pupils. This unique school is older than 100 years and is therefore classified as an historic building. The school’s hostel is located on the school’s grounds and offers boarding to 176 female learners.
At Paarl Girls’ High, the safety of learners and staff is of utmost importance. A fundamental component of the school’s security approach happens long before anyone has stepped inside the school’s premises.
Access control forms part of securing the perimeter of the school’s property, including each point of entry. Effective access control policies ensure that students, staff and visitors will know exactly where to enter, what to do once they get inside, and how to exit.
The challenge staff faced at the school and hostel was to provide total and efficient access control to the school’s boarders. They were faced with challenges at the hostel’s entry gate and inside the hostel, to keep unwanted visitors out.
Secutel Technologies is the exclusive distributor for Matrix COSEC access control solutions in South Africa. The company offered a comprehensive solution to Paarl Girls’ High, providing access to the hostel boarders and staff by using their fingerprints. At the two main entrances to the hostel, the fingerprint biometric door and gate controllers were installed to monitor access. This allows entry to registered boarders and staff only.
Matrix COSEC VEGA FAX readers with the COSEC CENTRA software were installed to perform the functions related to system administration, like enrolling learners and maintaining general reports on staff and learners’ entry and exit history. In addition, all the access control installations complied with the school’s strict historic buildings’ standards.
