Abu Dhabi's tallest building secured with Salto access control system.

Salto Systems : 31 March, 2008  (Application Story)
Smart electronic access control system from Salto secures Abu Dhabi's Sky Tower, one of the 5 tallest structures in the UAE.
The Sky Tower, the tallest building on Abu Dhabi's fast changing skyline and among the five tallest in the UAE, has chosen to install smart electronic access control products from Salto Systems to handle its security requirements.

With an ambitious construction programme underway Abu Dhabi, which is also the capital and principal city of the emirates, is the largest of the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates by size. It is now offering some of the most exciting real estate on the planet.

The project, which is due for completion in March 2010, is just five minutes from downtown Abu Dhabi and consists of luxurious state-of-the-art residential and commercial accommodation as well as a Podium. There is a choice of one to four bedroom apartments and luxury penthouses exclusively designed to provide a home in the sky, and offering breath-taking views of the gulf and Reem island of Abu Dhabi. There is also an adjacent 18,000 square metre sports and leisure centre, and a community mall with shops and restaurants.

Victor Hage, Salto Systems ME Regional Manager, said:"As a mixed use project, Sky Tower consists of two large buildings,one purely for residential use while the second will be a mix of half residential and half office space. Salto through their strategic partner in the UAE "Professionals,has won phase one of the project, installing 1,265 XS4 Electronic Locks using Mifare technology and 65 Salto Virtual Network (SVN) control units to handle secure access control for the two buildings, their parking areas and back-of-house operations.

The XS4 handle sets will enable the Sky Tower's owners to control and manage a greater range of access control applications than ever before. They need no hard wiring and provide a totally wire free networked electronic locking environment while our SVN product allows the stand-alone locks to read, receive and write information via their operating smart cards whilst its on-line wall readers are able to update (and receive information from) the cards at any time anywhere in the buildings. And in addition, Salto through their new SVN modular wall readers has also enabled a major interface with the vertical transportation facilities (elevators) to be made in the buildings."
