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.
