Public access security for Redbridge College

Kaba Ltd : 26 November, 2008  (Application Story)
Access control for Skills for Life college achieved with integrated system from Kaba including revolving door with automatic pass doors
Redbridge College is a Skills for Life College, which means that they are dedicated to helping all learners improve their literacy and numeracy skills, and achieve nationally recognised qualifications.

Situated in Romford, Essex, Redbridge College has a broad range of facilities for their students including: flexible learning centres, hundreds of computers, excellent indoor and outdoor sports facilities, a state of the art contemporary popular music suite with added new facilities for music technology, a brand new dance studio, a gym open for student use, new well equipped hairdressing and beauty salons, and a brand new training restaurant and kitchens.

One of the greatest challenges for any education establishment is balancing the need to create an open, stimulating and comfortable environment, while ensuring that people and equipment are protected from the threat of theft, vandalism and physical attack.

With an extensive product portfolio comprising mechanical and mechatronic locking systems, electronic access control, security doors and time and attendance, Kaba has developed integrated solutions specifically for the education sector to provide a complete security solution for any school, college or university.

Kaba's Public Access Solutions division provides specific solutions for the controlled entry of visitors, students and staff to education facilities and on that basis Kaba was invited to carry out a detailed site survey at Redbridge College.

It was explained to Kaba that the automatic sliding doors currently in place were allowing a cold ingress into the reception area and throughout the building each time the doors opened. With the frequent comings and goings of all site personnel and in light of today's continually rising utility rates, this was proving to be both impractical and costly.

After listening carefully to the client's requirements, Kaba proposed and subsequently installed a fully automatic Talos RDR-E01 revolving door with bilateral automatic pass doors. Talos revolving doors provide an energy efficient solution for entrance areas thanks to their thermal separation design incorporated into the facade of a building. As an option, revolving doors can be equipped with a number of features to suit our customer's demands.

By choosing the relevant features Talos revolving doors can be made to comply with various security standards (breaking and entering, fire, etc...). The automatic pass doors were installed either side to provide seamless access for people with reduced mobility and for the transportation of goods via the reception area.

Features include:

* Excellent thermal insulation
* Customised design
* Solutions for emergency escape routes
* Stylish all-glass versions

Alan Steward, Estates Manager at Redbridge College commented, "Kaba's revolving doors have more than matched our requirements and will prove cost effective The installation was clean, tidy and swift with minimal disruption to our students and staff and the after sales support has been very efficient with same day or next day response times".

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