Access control & door entry system for a school

Safeguard Systems were asked to provide a quotation for an access control and door entry system for a reputable independent school.

The school needed an improved system for managing attendance and knowing who is in and out of the building at any one time.

Furthermore, they needed a system that would be easily manageable, administered and could have students and staff added to it simply.

Having worked with many schools in the past, we knew we would be able to design and install a system meeting all of their requirements and budget.


The door entry system design and recommendations

Safeguard Systems had a surveyor attend site to understand the client’s full requirements. The client required the electronic door entry system to cover the main entrance for pupils, the reception area and staff entrance.

The system would need to provide general access via the main entrance whilst restricting entry to the staff access area.

Considering internal resources, and the requirement for the system to be easily manageable, we opted for Paxton Net2. The installed system would comprise of:

  • Fobs & fob readers
  • Maglocks and push to exit buttons
  • Emergency break glass units

Full training would be provided for assigning and deleting users.



School access control and door entry system: Project outcome

The system was installed on time and against a challenging deadline. Our engineers are used to working around the needs of schools and their staff.

Full training was delivered on administering the system, adding and deleting users, and how to track who is in and out of the building.

The client was delighted with the project turnaround timeframe and the school now has an effective access control and door entry system to help manage the flow of staff, pupils and visitors.

I've partnerred with Safeguard on several projects before and I wouldn't go anywhere else for a quality security system installation. Our client, a high-end hair salon required a full studio design and fit-out along with a highly effective CCTV system to help protect and watch over their premises.

Safeguard Systems fitted a complete camera and intruder beam system for my storage compound, started the job very quickly and explained what was possible clearly. Really happy with the system, the remoter viewing capabilities and I've had no reliability issues either.
