21 Apr Corporate Offices – Novartis
Access to Novartis Pharmaceuticals’ new campus in Sydney’s Macquarie Park has been secured in style with 3 lanes of Centurion EasyGate HG speedgates from Centaman Entrance Control.
The new development represents Novartis’ continued long-term local commitment to delivering healthcare solutions that help make a difference to the health and wellbeing of Australians, now and in the future.
Part of the requirement for the building was to control tailgating in the main reception area of the campus – limiting access to only authorised occupants and visitors. As such 3 lanes of EasyGate HG here installed and integrated with the Novartis’s usual access control system.
Centurion EasyGate HG uses glass barriers of up to 1800mm in height, in conjunction with state-of-the-art optical technology to provide a high throughput security gate. The bi-directional glass barriers are designed to work in a ‘normally closed’ mode and open after a valid card has been presented to allow the authorised user to pass. The barriers are designed to close quickly behind the authorised person to deter tailgaters whilst the IR sensors monitor the lane to detect unauthorised entry and ensure the safety of users. The ‘swing barrier’ design of the EasyGate HG allows the same slim pedestal to be used for both standard width and wheelchair width lanes alike making it ideal for installation in areas with space constraints.
These turnstiles offer unrivalled processing speeds coupled with an aesthetic design which sits comfortably in a building designed to put everything on display. “The elegance and simplicity of the design affect the image of the access control. Security should no longer seen as an obstacle. EasyGate HG’s open design makes it an ideal solution for the reception area of a building like this.” commented Michael Bystram, Entrance Control Manager at Centaman.
