ClearStyle optical turnstiles from Integrated Design were recently installed at a multitenanted Southside office building in London, UK.
Walker Packman was employed to design and project manage the refurbishment of the main entrance and reception at Southside. Part of Walker Packman's brief was to design a security system that would complement the modern design and décor of the new reception areas, but still provide an effective measure against unwanted intruders. The chosen system also had to offer Southside's many staff and visitors a combination of user friendliness and speed of use, so as not to impede their ingress or egress to and from the building.
Walker Packman selected Fastlane ClearStyle optical turnstiles. Fastlane replaces the physical barrier of traditional turnstiles with infrared beams to monitor the passage of all individuals as they enter and leave the building. To further minimise the aesthetic impact that the turnstiles would have on the overall design of the reception area, the ClearStyle version of Fastlane was chosen. These units are predominantly made of glass, creating an open appearance, ensuring that they would blend in with the fabric of the building.
Each entrant is assigned with an access card that they present every time they pass through the units. This ensures a one person, one card policy and provides an effective detection of illegal entry attempts, including tailgating. As there is no barrier, speed of throughput is also increased with users typically entering at one person per second.
