Kaba provide access systems for newstest International

Kaba Ltd : 10 December, 2008  (Application Story)
Turnstiles and bicycle access included in public access system installed by Kaba at the Wapping site of News International
News International's Wapping site in east London is the main UK Subsidiary of
News Corporation and home to four of it's national newspapers, The Sun, News of theWorld, The Times and The Sunday Times.

For over thirty years, the name Kaba stands for proven competence in physical access control. We provide innovative solutions for the access to buildings, rooms and premises including access control supported by staff supervision and single file access to high security areas.

Kaba's Public Access Solutions division provides specific solutions for the controlled entry of visitors and staff on a company premises and has successfully installed security doors in government buildings, airports, banks, industrial plants, stadiums and many other businesses.

On that basis Kaba was approached by HS Group Facilities Management to provide a solution that would segregate the traffic flow of the operations staff and construction workers that would comprehensively control the access of all pedestrians more efficiently.

Gates along the outside of a premises can often lack surveillance and so access control equipment for these entrances has to be particularly sturdy, reliable and weather proof which is why Kaba proposed and subsequently installed several Kentaur FTS-E02 full-height turnstiles.

Robust turnstiles from the Kentaur range are ideal for securing outside areas. In conjunction with card readers they can be used to control single file access reliably without the need for staff surveillance, ensuring controlled passage of individuals from one side to the other in the permitted direction and effective perimeter protection.

Thanks to our patented end-point locking system it is impossible for anyone to be trapped in the turnstile during a power failure or attempted unauthorised access.

Features of the system include:

* Patented end-point locking system prevents being locked in
* Versions with integrated bike gate, swing door for the transit of goods
* Emergency escape function or WK2 resistance category
* Modular system: a variety of turnstile bars, roof elements and side panels in different materials and designs can be combined
* Turnstile column and bars made of stainless steel
* Speed of rotation changes to match that of person entering
* Low energy drive system

Eddie Warren of HS Group Facilities Management commented, "Kaba's revolving doors have more than matched our requirements. We've installed five of these turnstiles in total on this particular site and they have never let us down".

The name Kaba stands for high quality products and proven competence. First class references from many businesses around the world highlight the values we believe in: security, design and ease of use.
