ID by colour

November 2008 Access Control & Identity Management

Identification of staff and visitors is the first line of defence when maintaining secure premises. Many companies have implemented ID badging solutions but ensuring the validity of the cards in circulation at any given time can be problematic, creating a potential security threat.

As a local supplier of secure people identification solutions Brand New Technologies is now able to offer the answer to this problem. According to Danica Laxton, Brand New sales and marketing director, the task of ordering and implementing a visitor management ID badging system is easier and safer than ever before with the introduction of the TEMPbadge time expiring badge technology from Brady People ID.

“The TEMPbadge is superior to any other temporary ID badge as it allows security personnel to issue time expiring badges based on specific time durations, with the temporary ID badge changing colour when it is no longer valid,” explains Laxton. “Depending on the expiration period you choose, the badge will remain white for the duration of that allotted time before the colour change begins. For example, a one day expiring TEMPbadge issued in the morning will reveal light pink bars by late afternoon and darker pink bars within one day, clearly indicating an unmistakable visual expiration.”

‘TempBadges’ consist of two parts. The front part is a 70 mm x 50 mm thermal label available in four pre-determined time frames, half day, one day, one week or one month. The back part of the TempBadge is pre-printed with red stripes in time release ink which reacts to the label when the two come into contact with each other. Stick the two parts together and time will take care of the rest! The colour change is a gradual process which cannot be reversed and when complete the red stripes will show through to the label.

Badges are quick and easy to produce, using different designs for contractors, permanent and temporary staff and visitors. Details on the cards can be either written manually or printed on any thermal printer.

“The TEMPbadge Solution is fast, easy to implement and extremely cost effective making it perfect for a wide range of applications from schools to the military. Innovative pre-packaged kits are available to provide customers with a positive experience when managing a badging system. In content and method, the new pre-packaged kits offer unmatched value and deliver a badging solution that is nothing short of visitor management in a box,” concludes Laxton.
