Access Control


A leading Kuwaiti Telecom- munications Company has recently completed the installation of Fastlane plus R400 MA turnstiles from Integrated Design Limited.

The design brief was to create a secure workplace by limiting access to the building to authorised staff and visitors, while complying with the access control laws for disabled people.  As such an access control system and turnstiles were required.  It was intended that a secure perimeter at all entrances into the building be maintained, while creating the minimum inconvenience to staff and visitors alike.

Kuwait Computer Services (KCS) were brought on board to recommend a suitable system, after a successful meeting at Intersec Dubai exhibition 2006 last January.  Mr. Daniel Van Kerckhove recommended the Fastlane plus R400 MA, the very latest in high-tech entrance control systems, from Integrated Design Ltd.  Fastlane plus is a state-of-the-art barrier-arm optical turnstile which uses optical technology to monitor the passage of every individual entering and leaving the building, and the fast-acting barrier arms physically deter any unauthorised access.  One of the key features of the R400 MA is the slim pedestal design.  These can be positioned further apart for wheelchair access without the need for a wider pedestal or a separate gate, thus complying with disability laws.  The small footprint compared to other systems allows the Fastlane plus to fit into much smaller spaces, which was also a factor to consider due to the space limitations of the entrances.

The Fastlane turnstiles were combined with a Lenel Access Control System with HID readers to help prevent the most common of access control violations such as tailgating, pass-back and unauthorised entry.

16 lanes of the Fastlane plus R400 MA units were positioned around the seven entrances of the building, thereby creating a secure perimeter and allowing staff and visitors quick and easy access to the building whichever entrance they use.

”We did considerable research into the market and Fastlane plus was the ideal product for this application.  We required a high throughput turnstile to match the fast acting Lenel system while at the same time there was limited space available in some of the reception areas.  Fastlane plus has the smallest footprint of any speedgate we came across on the market and its fast acting barriers arms combined with its advanced intelligence made it the ideal product.  The Fastlane plus speedgates and Lenel system have been an ideal integration to provide us a highly secure entrance control system with the ability to match flow rates demanded by such a busy office building,Said Daniel Van Kerckhove, from KCS.
