WaterMarc optimises lobby security with Centurion EasyGate
5 lanes of Centurion EasyGate and SwingGate from Centaman Entrance Control have been installed at WaterMarc, the latest multi activity regional centre to open in Victoria.
WaterMarc evaluated a number of different turnstile solutions in its effort to balance not only the budget, but to maximise efficiency, provide the best visitor experience all while maintaining the high level of aesthetic design evident throughout the facility. The Centurion EasyGate SG from Centaman Entrance Control was selected as the product that best matched their requirements.
Centurion EasyGate SG uses glass barriers 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 are designed to close quickly behind the authorised person to deter tailgaters whilst the IR sensors monitor the lane to detect unauthorised entry and ensure the safety of users. The barriers open in a door like motion which enables the pedestal to be only 200mm wide and the same slim pedestal can be used in wide DDA compliant lanes which ensures the turnstiles have a minimal visual impact to distract from the overall building design.
‘As many WaterMarc members carry sports bags and other items we definitely wanted a hands free solution for the turnstiles. But, of course, with the high number of visitors we have coming each day we wanted it to be quick and efficient as well. The EasyGate barriers fulfil these requirements and blend perfectly with the foyer surroundings’. Said Tom Zapulla, Leisure Facilities Co-Coordinator for Banyule City Council.
