Securefast provides the latest multi-suite locking solutions to Exeter student block
When the developers of Exeter's Queen Street student accommodation block were looking for an efficient yet versatile security system for their latest multi occupation complex they turned to the Securefast team of security specialists to provide the perfect user friendly locking solution.
The project included the design and construction of 151 en-suite student study bedrooms in flat clusters, with each flat cluster comprising of one kitchen and a dining and living room area. The development also included a management suite together with a main reception, staff office, WC, kitchen area, laundrette and common room.
The client's remit called for a cost effect, yet robust, locking solution for all bedroom doors, together with state of the art external door access controls based around a fully automatic operating system.
To fulfil the client's specification the Securefast team installed the company's ONDOOR Smartlock ASL951BW Wireless Network System as a standalone Virtual network. The system incorporates battery powered door lock units using MIFARE RFID proximity technology on all bedrooms and associated doors.
The "Take on Card System" provides an easy to use, easy to administer access control solution that does not require wiring and can be set up straight out of the box. All Information to the locks is supplied via a Data Card or hand held programming terminal.
For the external door package the Securefast engineers installed the company's SMARTlock network system using the ASL95BASE wireless hub base stations to communicate between the system control software on a PC to each wall reader using Windows based software. The complete system provides an easy to use and highly secure access solution, ideal for medium to large installations.
For further information about the above system or to receive details on the comprehensive range of access control options available from Securefast, please contact our sales team on 01704 502801 or visit the Securefast web site at www.securefast.co.uk
