Financial institution selects Glassgate 250 to secure US HQ

Threats and risks are growing and changing rapidly and, with this, the demand for access control to secure office environments has increased around the globe, with organisations wanting their employees to feel safe in their places of work.

Working with Smarter Security, our exclusive Fastlane distributor in the USA, we recently supplied six lanes of Fastlane Glassgate 250 to control access to two banks of elevators in a leading financial institution’s new headquarters in northeastern United States.

Needing a stylish choice to complement the office environment, the end user selected the Glassgate 250, assured by the level of security it provides, the energy efficiency of this unit – which is in line with the US Green Building Council LEED rating system – and its ability to integrate with other security systems, such as CCTV. The sleek, stainless steel design and the low glass barriers which feature a ‘door-like’ action was also a factor, giving users confidence in operating the system and ensuring quick acceptance.

Commenting on this project, Jeff Brown, CEO of Smarter Security, said: “We are finding that very few high-quality office spaces in the United States choose to operate without the kind of access control security that Fastlane Speedgates provide. This customer, as with many banks, places great value on securing its workplaces and employees, and has selected Fastlane turnstiles to help them accomplish this mission. We are very proud that this high-profile institution chose Smarter Security to provide the most intelligent Speedgate solution on the market, the Fastlane Glassgate 250, to help better protect its people and assets.”

Tony Smith, Major Accounts and Marketing Manager, at Integrated Design Limited, adds: “End users in the Americas and Canada really do benefit from our exclusive partnership with Smarter Security – IDL supplies the high quality, reliable products and Smarter Security provides the excellent project consultation, sales, installation, technical support and customer service. We look forward to many more successful projects like this in the future.”
