A QUESTION OF ACCESS


Matthew Batson, Director at Bft Automation, looks at how organisations can utilise technology to address their evolving needs in a post-COVID world.


The experience of the COVID-19 pandemic has made us all more conscious of who is coming and going from our facilities. Whether it is a business premises, industrial site or a public building, owners want full control over access for protection and peace of mind.


What’s more, the issue of contact has come to the fore. How can we come and go from a facility whilst minimsing the spread of COVID-19 through surfaces? We want to protect all people within a premise - the workforce, and those who come and go such as visitors, delivery drivers and customers.


As we now look at access control in a new light an automated entry and exit can go a long way to giving businesses and property owners peace of mind. Combining existing automation products with the latest facial recognition and access control technologies offers the option of creating a contactless entry and exit system.

There are a number of options on the market which businesses can install to protect their properties. As a facilities manager, here are some considerations to make before recommending a purchase.


Automated gates – to slide or to swing? Automated gates can be a great way to manage who has access to your property, for both vehicles and pedestrians. They can form an effective part of your security provision.


Gates can be automated to either swing or to slide open and in the case of swinging gates, the opener may be concealed underground or gate mounted. The most suitable operator for your installation will depend on the space available and the type of gate selected.


The choice between slide and swing is largely down to the space available - swing gates require a clear space for their opening arc whilst sliding gates require space to one or both
