Card access systems
Card access systems are an effective yet simple way to control access in and around any building. Generally they are used for commercial buildings but suit a variety of applications. A simple swipe card or proximity card would be presented to a card reader located outside the door. When the card is read by the card reader the door will automatically unlock for a predetermined amount of time.
Coded entry systems
Or digital access systems as they are sometimes known, offer a high degree of convenience to the Office Manager. A standard 4-digit code can be set to allow certain staff access through a particular door. A non-volatile memory and/or battery back up will also be useful. The code will be retained in the event of a power failure. Multiple codes can be adopted for the control of different staff members. Keypads can be backlit for night time use.
Fingerprint and Hand Shape Readers
It is likely that this is one of the most advanced forms of control available today. This is because it does not rely upon a card or a number, but the person’s biological identity.
Organizations of all sizes use time and attendance systems to record when employees start and stop work, and the department where the work is performed. However, it’s also common to track meals and breaks, the type of work performed, and the number of items produced. As Siemens Partners, we are able to integrate our access control systems with specialist Time and Attendance systems where required.
Ansador Ltd has an electric door lock for every type of door. All forms of door intercom and access control system will require an electric lock of some type or another. As the style, type and size of doors varies so much there is a huge range of locks to choose from. It is vital to specify the correct lock if the integrity of both the door and security of the building are not to be compromised. Magnetic locks are available in most sizes and are well suited for use on doors which are designated fire exits but still need to be secure from the outside. The correct strength lock must be specified for each door.
Tracking, reporting and linking into other security systems around the building.
All Companies need to control and monitor visitors into their buildings. Free unrestricted access into buildings is not acceptable.
To help monitor and control visitors a simple visitor management system can be put in place either standalone or as part of an integrated access control system. Here at Ansador Ltd we offer a range of systems to suit the simplest need to the most advanced integrated system incorporating Photo ID, tracking and reporting and linking to other security systems around the building.
Disability Access Control
It is now mandatory to provide disability access control equipment that meets the DDA standards for buildings. Ansador are pleased to offer a complete range of equipment to help the building owner meet the obligations required under the The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995.
While the requirements under the act are wide ranging we have provided a list of equipment and solutions that cater for access control and security.
In recent years the number of incidents at schools involving not only the safety of pupils and staff, but also theft, vandalism etc., by walk-in thieves, has led to a reappraisal of the security measures employed. In fact, security is now an integral part of the OFSTED inspection process.
Every year a large number of generally older people fall victim to diseases traditionally referred to as ‘ageing’ diseases. The best known of these is Alzheimer’s Disease where the patients spend an increasing proportion of their time confused and unable to recognise usually familiar people. This is distressing to family as the patients become unable to look after themselves and they often have to be admitted to a permanent care home.
