Security doors for easy access

Fire & Security, Information

Don’t let the title fool you.  We are not talking about making it easier for just anyone to enter a premises.  What we are talking about is easy controlled access for those who need it.

Picture the scene. A frequently used auto locking door that requires a key.  Every time that a member of staff needs access, they need to have the key on them. In a business with multiple staff, do they all have a key?  Do they need to sign in to get access to the key?  For what seems like a simple access issue, it can easily spiral into a complicated security issue.

So what are the options?  Controlled access security systems using code locks.

Whether controlling access to certain areas of a commercial premises or working in tandem with other security and fire systems, code lock security systems offer users a convenient standalone solution that provides easy access to low, medium or high security risk entry points whilst doing away with keys which can be cumbersome and easy to loose.

There is a huge range of code lock entry systems available to suit almost any security need.  From heavy duty mechanical push button lock systems for minimal security access to sophisticated digital systems that are compatible with NFC and MIFARE systems as well as intruder alarm systems.

do away with lots of keys for code access

The sky is the limit when it comes to access control systems.  If you are simply looking for a security system for low risk door access (such as the back door of a restaurant) then mechanical systems are an ideal and cost effective solution.  But when you enter the digital world of code lock systems, you can begin to tap into additional benefits like integrated clock in/clock out systems, restricted access controls and time sensitive access. This makes them ideal for larger businesses that want to monitor and control staff presence for fire, security and workplace punctuality.

Access control systems can be synced with businesses heating systems and office lighting in order to increase energy efficiency in a workplace and cut down on wasted heat energy in areas of a building with nobody in them.  Access control systems can ensure that lights are turned off and the heating is turned down in office spaces that are empty.  These small energy savings on a day to day basis can add up to very big energy cost savings through the year.

The flexibility of code lock security systems can offer businesses enhanced security systems that are a far more appropriate solution to security entry than traditional lock and key security systems and as businesses move to a hybrid business model, Access Control Systems can offer safety, security and staff attendance tracking that can be completely customised for your business needs.
