Protecting buildings and assets

Access Control

Access Control is, quite simply, a means of managing the access of people and vehicles, where appropriate, to buildings, car parks, vulnerable or sensitive areas, lifts, vending machines and other electronic equipment.

Entry Control has always been an important factor in the fight against crime, but at a time of economic difficulty and widespread international tension, it is even more important to be security conscious. It is essential that employees and their possessions are protected in the workplace, and that a company's efforts in developing new products, materials, or processes are not wasted through industrial espionage or impaired by theft and vandalism.

Controlled entry to buildings, blocks of flats and single domestic residences, either with or without video surveillance, can provide a real sense of security and peace of mind.

Correctly designed, installed and operated, a good access control system should provide a balance between security needs and freedom of movement for authorised personnel, enhancing rather than hindering the organisation employing it.
