Redbridge College warm to dormakaba

Redbridge College is a Skills for Life College, meaning they are dedicated to helping all learners improve their literacy and numeracy skills, and achieve nationally recognised qualifications. The college were looking for a security system that would allow them to create an open, stimulating and comfortable environment, while ensuring that people and equipment are protected from the threat of theft, vandalism and physical attack. dormakaba were invited to carry out a detailed site survey in order to provide a specific solution for the controlled entry of visitors, students and staff to the educational facility. dormakaba proposed and subsequently installed a fully automatic Talos RDR-E01 revolving door and bilateral automatic pass doors. Talos revolving doors provide an energy efficient solution for entrance areas thanks to their thermal separation design incorporated into the façade of a building. The automatic pass doors were installed either side to provide seamless access for people with a reduced mobility and for the transportation of goods via the reception area. Benefits included: excellent thermal insulation, customised design, solutions for emergency escape routes and stylish all-glass versions.

Alsop High School choose Controlsoft's biometric access solution

Alsop High School is one of the largest secondary schools in the city of Liverpool, with nearly 1800 students, including over 300 in the sixth form. In 2010 the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme provided Alsop with £22 million to create new facilities and refurbish the 82 year old school’s existing premises and playground. As part of the BSF programme, they invested in a Fingerprint Access Control System from Controlsoft. They chose the system based on the size of the database, needing the reader to handle over 1000 users at a fast pace. The Controlsoft reader can handle up to 50,000 users and can identify a user in one second or less, storing user templates locally in the reader so the PC does not need to be on-line to make an access control decision.
