Precise design for quality security
The main entrance and exit is now controlled by a pair of automated automatic gates that can be opened via a member of the schools staff and by a valid proximity card. The intercom systems are connected to the existing intercom and allow a visitor to the school to call reception either in a car, or on foot.
The receptionist can open either the vehicle gate or the pedestrian gate on a push of a button. The gates are low voltage and have multiple safety features to ensure safe operation and comply with the machine directive 98/37/EEC and the applicable parts of Standards EN13241-1, EN12453 & EN12445. The gates have been force tested in line with the recommendations by the HSC.
