|Fastlane® Glassgate 400 uses glass barriers of up to 1.8 metre in height to provide a high throughput security gate|
Fastlane® Glassgate 400 from Integrated Design Ltd (IDL)
has been installed in Macedonia to secure the new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility of a large Global Corporation.
The British-owned company saw the full range of Fastlane® entrance control products being showcased by IDL at the IFSEC security exhibition
in Birmingham, UK. The eye-catching product designs and the advanced intelligence of the Fastlane® infrared detection system made the range stand out from the competition. "Having successfully used the Fastlane
® plus model in our North American premises, we knew where to look when we needed a system for our new Macedonian plant. This time the Glassgate 400 model was the ideal choice as the optical technology combined with the tall glass barriers offered the level of security and fast throughput that we required. The narrow pedestals and minimalist style suit the modern building design perfectly,"
said the Security Manager.
Fastlane® Glassgate 400 uses glass barriers of up to 1.8 metre in height, in conjunction with state-of-the-art optical technology to provide a high throughput security gate. The bi-directional glass barriers are designed to work in a ‘normally closed' mode and open after a valid card has been presented to allow the authorised user to pass. The barriers move away from the user in a familiar 'door-like' motion, which is intuitive to use, ensuring quick acceptance. In the event of other authorised users trying to use the lane the barrier will stay open, even if they are walking in the opposite direction. The barriers will close quickly behind the authorised person to deter tailgaters.
One standard-width and one wheelchair-compliant lane were installed in Macedonia by the client's preferred local integrator Sectron Security & Communication Systems
."The Macedonian project is yet another example of IDL's increasing success with prestige clients in global markets. We are all very proud of the world-leading Fastlane
® range and understand that pre- and post-sales support also remains a key factor in our success overseas; therefore selecting and working closely with the best partners in each territory is crucial,"
said Tom Sharrard, European Sales.
