Ahoy Rotterdam offers a stage for live communication, business and entertainment. With its unique combination of the Arena (for up to 15.000 visitors) a Congress & Meeting Centre and six Exhibition & Event halls.
A team of 250 employees, partners and preferred suppliers want to enrich people's day or life: with a fine feeling, a wonderful memory, an inspiring idea, a business opportunity or maybe even a new friendship! Ahoy strives to create such a memorable experience for you.
Harro van Est, Manager Facility Services, says: "The intelligent Aperio™ technology was chosen to create a wireless connection with the existing access control system, without requiring any modification to the existing doors."
What was the challenge?
With hundreds of events every year and thousands of people every day, Ahoy was looking for a secure and flexible locking system with maximum manageability. The present mechanical locking system was no longer 'watertight' due to the loss of keys. The solution also had to adapt to the existing access control system from Nedap.
How did Aperio™ meet the requests?
Registration, authorisation and security. Ahoy had a number of requirements for its new locking system. Around 150 doors in the Arena and the Plaza were equipped with Assa Abloy Aperio™. Aperio™ made a simple security upgrade possible. Customer installation costs were limited by only minimal modifications to the existing doors and by making use of the existing card readers.
It is now possible to exactly see who was the last person to be in a room and manage access rights for each door. With the easy to expand with Aperio™ wireless lock technology, Ahoy is well prepared for the future.
The HID Genuine certified Aperio™ technology from ASSA ABLOY is manufacturer-independent and closes the gap between wired access control doors and wireless doors with mechanical security technology.
