dormakaba revise Gloucestershire College security

Author: Erin/10 March 2017/Categories: Case Studies, Access Control

Gloucestershire College, formerly known as Gloscat (Gloucester College of Art and Technology) is one of the UK’s largest further education colleges. Since the year 2000, Gloucestershire College has been pursuing an exciting accommodation strategy that has already delivered a brand new state of the art campus in Cheltenham and now the relocation of its three Gloucester sites to a single facility in the heart of the scenic Gloucester Docks. The college were looking for a security solution that would ensure the well-being of all their personnel, students and their personal belongings. Gloucester Locksmiths were called in to provide both an electronic and mechanical locking solution to meet the Colleges’ requirements and after listening carefully they were pleased to offer a complete solution utilising dormakaba products. Subsequently, dormakaba received an order via their long term approved dealer Gloucester Locksmiths to supply and fit 256 C-Levers incorporating card-based security and almost 300 pExtra cylinders. It was decided that all interior quarters such as classrooms, sports halls, IT rooms and the health and beauty spa were to be secured with the dormakaba Elolegic C-Lever solution, whilst Gege pExtra was the mechanical system of choice to protect all perimeter doors and gates from outside intrusion. The Kaba Elolegic C-Lever is a stand-alone, mechatronic door fitting whose electronics are integrated within. Access is gained using a choice of contact free media such as keys, ID cards or fobs when fitted with the renowned LEGIC chip. If a valid medium is read by the electronics, a motor engages the handle coupling and the door can be opened for 5 seconds. In addition, the LEGIC chip allows other applications such as time & attendance, cash-free payment and audit trail.
