Speedgates - Glasswing


Fastlane Glasswing uses glass security barriers in conjunction with state of the art optical technology to provide a high throughput security gate. The glass security barriers are designed to work in a normally closed mode and retract inside the pedestal after a valid card has been presented to allow the authorised user to pass. The fast moving glass barriers close behind the authorised person to deter tailgaters.

The barriers are positioned in the middle of the pedestal to allow true bidirectional control and automatic free exit if desired. 3 variants are available: Compact, Standard and Wide; giving an access width anywhere between 550 mm to 914 mm. The Compact is a cost effective solution for areas with space constraints and allows for access of 550 mm. The Standard variant gives a wider access width of up to 700 mm, which is greater than the industry standard and provides greater flexibility of movement to users, particularly when they are carrying briefcases etc. The Wide variant is designed for wheelchair access, giving an access width of 914mm.

More Secure - Different height glass barrier options available for Speed Gates to deter people from climbing over.

- 24 beam IR detection matrix provides unsurpassed tailgate detection and deterrence; tailgaters are detected following as close as 5 mm behind authorised users.

- Barriers are designed to close quickly and safely behind users after they have cleared the speedgate therefore deterring tailgaters.

- 2-stage alarm response: early audible warning alarm followed by a secondary output for a higher security response e.g. to trigger CCTV or lock doors.

Greatest Throughput - Throughput of up to 1 pedestrian per second through Fastlane pedestrian speedgates means a greater return on investment and often means fewer speedgates are required, with less wasted time in queues leading to greater user acceptance.

Intelligent Security Gates - Retracting or swinging glass barriers intelligently control traffic flow while maximising throughput. Barriers stay open while additional authorised people walk through - even if they are walking in the opposite direction.

Unsurpassed Accuracy - Virtually eliminates false alarms. The intelligence of Fastlane enables the system to differentiate between body mass and small objects such as umbrellas etc. This increases user and guard acceptance, avoiding "tune-out" from excessive false alarms.

Easiest Installation and Ongoing Maintenance - CAT 5 interconnections provide plug ‘n' play simplicity. Industry proven technology and onboard diagnostics to ensure maximum system up-time.

Safety - Fastlane Speedgates feature up to 8 safety beams designed to stop the barriers from moving in the event that any of the beams are broken. The units feature a fire alarm input to allow for unimpeded emergency egress and the units can be configured to fail safe in the event of power fail.

Throughput - The Fastlane Speedgates feature a Throughput Management system. When activated the barriers stay open after an authorised entry for a defined period of time to await another authorised card. This negates the need for the barrier to open and close in between authorised people at peak traffic times.

Disabled Access - Fastlane Speedgates can be installed in a number of ways to allow for wheelchair access to make the installation compliant with the UK Disabilities and Discrimination Act (DDA) as well as most similar international standards. Audio and visual feedback is provided as standard.
