Redesign raises the bar for one of Australasia’s most popular security gates

Security expert Entrance Control has revamped its popular EasyGate SPT speedgate for organisations seeking free flowing entrance systems with watertight security across Australasia.

The speedgate is already a popular choice trusted to protect many of Australasia’s best-known corporate offices, government buildings and leisure sites.

Entrance Control General Manager Michael Bystram says the latest iteration of EasyGate SPT is another leap forward for security and the user experience.

“These gates take advantage of some of the latest technology and innovations to ensure we stay one step ahead of the game to best safeguard our clients’ interests.”

The re-designed EasyGate SPT integrates a visitor access card collector and ‘stop-go’ lane light directly into the into its pedestal frame, more effectively marrying form and function. The overall profile has been slimmed down and the lock covers used by maintenance technicians have been better disguised to make them more aesthetically pleasing and better disguised.

A variety of functionality upgrades have been implemented in Entrance Control’s product.

In high rise buildings, the gate is commonly installed with ‘lift call’ functionality that automatically allocates and calls a lift for everyone passing through its barriers. The redesigned EasyGate SPT re-positions the lift call display, which guides visitors to their allocated lift, so that it now sits at a better viewing height for gate users.

The electronics in the gates have been reworked to make access easier for technicians conducting gate installation or maintenance, and extra anchoring points have also been added to ensure installation can be done more easily without interfering with any existing floor wiring.

Bystram says the speedgates are already renowned for offering head-turning ultra-modern aesthetics, but the re-design takes their security credentials to the next level. Vertically the bottom edge of the glass wing has been lowered to 230 mm from the ground to prevent anyone crawling underneath. The barrier wings also feature a new flag shape that widen the top of each wing to extend over the speedgate pedestals, further helping to prevent any determined efforts by non-authorised visitors who might try to squeeze through.

“EasyGate SPT is used in some of Australia and New Zealand’s busiest and most high-profile buildings, from 32 Smith in Parramatta and Brisbane’s Midtown Centre to New Zealand’s Parliament Buildings,” he says. “Recent innovations have allowed for our 2023 re-design, raising the security bar further than was possible previously.”

Entrance Control was formerly known as Centaman Entrance Control but has recently rebranded. The company has been supplying, installing and maintaining entrance control gates in Australia and New Zealand for more than 15 years, gaining a reputation as one of Australasia’s premier security solution providers.
