Fastlane turnstiles have been installed at the Head Office of Allianz Insurance Plc., a leading and highly regarded general insurer in the UK market, to improve overall security and prevent unauthorised pedestrian access via tailgating and collusion.
Part of the project involved the installation of six, DDA compliant lanes of Fastlane Glassgate 150 turnstiles, with an integrated Avigilon access control system and Third Millennium multi technology card readers.
Access control system
The main objective of the turnstiles is to ensure that staff use their access control cards correctly – preventing them from allowing access to colleagues who may have forgotten their own card, for example – whilst at the same time heightening security by preventing people outside of the organisation simply walking in off the street to gain access to the office.
Charlie Salamone, Director at AVANZA Intelligent IT & Security, commented: “The Glassgate 150 was chosen as it’s one of Fastlane’s medium security turnstiles, with pedestal-height glass barriers providing a visual deterrent to anyone considering an unauthorised access attempt, whilst maintaining an open feel enclosure making the units visually appealing.”
