Optical Turnstile from Smarter Security Systems Protects Financial Center
Fastlane ClearStyle 200
Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 7, 2010
Smarter Security Systems, provider of intelligent entrance control and outdoor security solutions, today announced that a worker's compensation insurance operation in the western United States recently installed three lanes of Fastlane ClearStyle 200 in its headquarters. Integrated with other entry control technologies, the installation has had a material and measurable effect on tightening security for the building.
When constructing the new building for its headquarters, the customer decided to install optical turnstiles to better protect the operations and to help raise the level of security awareness and execution by its employees. Three lanes were installed at the employee-only entrance to address the problem of employees piggybacking and sharing access cards. Fastlane ClearStyle 200 was chosen because of its superior technology and because its’ unique aesthetic design complemented the building entrance. The non-barrier solution is consistent with the open and friendly culture of the organization. Security is high without a barrier as any unauthorized access sounds an alarm and puts the sliding glass doors just beyond the turnstiles in lockdown.
"ClearStyle is an optical turnstile like no other – unsurpassed in style and elegance. For organizations that value aesthetics and prefer a more subtle and open approach to lobby security, ClearStyle is an obvious choice," said Jeff Brown, President of Smarter Security Systems. "Our Western Region Sales Manager., Skip Williams, did a terrific job of working with this customer and meeting their needs. The new security not only keeps out intruders, but has also had a significant impact on changing employee behavior so they are more compliant with security processes. The customer is quite pleased with ClearStyle's performance and the results."
ClearStyle 200 is an optical turnstile with an architect-inspired and patented design. Glass side panels allow the design of the lobby to be better seen and contain chevrons that flash to help signal access violations. While throughput is maximized with the non-barrier design, advanced Fastlane optical technology keeps the facility secure by detecting tailgaters and unauthorized entries while minimizing nuisance alarms. Local and remote alarms allow security staff to respond to violations and the turnstile, upon alarm, can lock adjacent doors, shutdown elevators, or trigger CCTV systems to help assess threats.
