23 Nov Swan Active modernises leisure centres with EasyGate SG
Revolutionary gates have made an entrance at two Swan Active leisure centres, with the sleek European design helping to modernise the facilities.
The Centaman Entrance Control EasyGate SG speedgates were installed in the Beechboro and Ballajura Swan Active leisure centres in Western Australia during extensive renovations undertaken by City of Swan to upgrade the facilities.
The customisable shape, size and configuration of the gates ensured they suited the buildings’ architectural vision.
“Swan Active required a streamlined solution to control access to their pool areas,” said Matt Beattie of Marshall Beattie Automation, which coordinated installation of the gates.
Using the latest in high-tech entrance control turnstile technology, the stylish glass barriers open away from users after a valid card is presented and are designed to detect and deter tailgaters.
Built to last, the speedgates at the pool’s entrance were made with polished 316 stainless steel to make them resistant to rust from the corrosive environment.
Centaman Entrance Control General Manager Michael Bystram said access to the pools had been quick and easy for customers since installation of the gates was completed in early 2020.
“The new automated access gates do not require regular staffing, which has streamlined entry even on the busiest days. Each lane allows up to 60 people to enter per minute.”
The two-lanes of EasyGates installed at each of the Swan Active centres offer wheelchair access and comply with Disability Discrimination Act of Australia requirements.
Swan Active Beechboro is a leisure centre with a gym, swimming pool and café, and the Ballajura centre offers pools and a café.
