Secure, Safe & Stylish – The Latest Automatic Entrance Solutions

Over the past two decades or so, society’s approach to the issue of security has changed dramatically. For well-documented reasons, the entrance and access control solutions that greet visitors to the average commercial building today are a world from those that greeted them (or their parents) to those same buildings last century.

At the same time however, over the past 20 years, our understanding of security has also developed and evolved. Suppliers of security solutions – and indeed architects – now have a deeper understanding of not just ways to ensure safety, but how to do so in ways that minimise disruption and don’t alienate those who work in or visit commercial buildings.

In addition, and just as importantly, these same suppliers and specifiers have developed security products and strategies that are not at odds with broader design considerations.

This CPD Live is concerned with all of the above. Focussing on security, our speakers outline the latest access control and automatic entrance solutions available. They explain how they can be best employed to regulate the movement of people in an effective and safe manner.
