Security by design at 200 George St
Nine lanes of customized Centurion EasyGate from Centaman Entrance Control have been installed 200 George Street, Sydney.
Part of the requirement for the building was for an integrated access control system, lift destination control system and turnstile solution to limit building access to only authorized occupants and visitors whilst speeding up pedestrian movement in to and up through the building. The caveat being the turnstile design had to blend in with the overall building design.
Centaman Entrance Control worked closely with the architects, Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp, to come up with a solution. The architects penned a concept for the turnstiles and the design team at Centaman Entrance Control came up with a solution marrying together the concept with an existing EasyGate model.
Based on the EasyGate HG, the design was customized so the pedestals were clad in the same stone as the concierge desks and the metal work was finished in black to ensure the speedgates complemented the overall design concept for the buildings striking lobby.
Centurion EasyGate uses glass barriers of up to 1800 mm 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 swing open after a valid card has been presented to allow the authorized user to pass. The barriers are designed to close quickly behind the authorized person to deter tailgaters whilst the IR sensors monitor the lane to detect unauthorized entry and ensure the safety of users.
