Securing a classic car dealership

In the world of prestigious classic cars, safeguarding assets and ensuring smooth operations is paramount.

A renowned classic car dealer sought an access control solution to modernise its approach to security.

The client needed a door entry solution to manage internal access and streamline staff movements across the premises.

In addition to tracking employee movements, they needed to restrict access to certain parts of the site for authorised personnel only.

This would serve to safeguard vital items like cash and vehicle keys while preventing unauthorised site entry.

Site survey & access control system recommendations

A detailed site survey and review of the client’s comprehensive objectives paved the way for our professional recommendations.

We proposed a Paxton Net2 door entry system, incorporating fob access and a video intercom solution. This tailored solution aligned perfectly with the client’s security objectives.

The integration of the access control system with the fire alarm system added an extra layer of sophistication.

In case of a fire alarm activation, the internal door locks would be released, and external barriers would open, aiding a seamless evacuation process and access for the emergency services.

This integration underscored not only security but also an integrated approach to site safety.

Minimal disruption for a busy, client facing car dealership

Impressed with our recommendations and SSAIB certification, the client entrusted us with the installation.

They instructed us to carry out the work, with the request for minimal disruption to their day-to-day operations.

The unique nature of the business, housing valuable classic cars, demanded the utmost professionalism and discretion.

As a result of these needs, our DBS-checked access control installers executed the installation with minimal disruption, respecting the customer-facing essence of the business.

The final installation integrated security and safety, whilst maintaining the stylish interior design of this classic car dealership.
