The Shortest Swing Barrier Gate: Boon Edam Launches the Speedlane Compact Security Speed Gate
Edam, The Netherlands – 02 June 2020 - Royal Boon Edam International B.V., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, announced today that they have launched the latest addition to their medium security portfolio. The ‘No-Nonsense’ Swinging Security Speed Gate With the growing threat of workplace safety coming under increasing scrutiny, more and more organisations are turning to security entrances to increase both the safety and security of people and assets. The Speedlane Compact has been designed to provide all the fundamental functions needed in a security speed gate. Nothing more, nothing less. This is uncomplicated, premium, advanced security – realised from a general industry need for a quality, straightforward security entrance solution. In addition, current developments surrounding the corona pandemic are causing companies to increasingly ask themselves who and when and why they may be inside a building or a specific space. Key Features Intuitive user guidance Tailgating, safety and object detection sensor sets, as standard Easy installation Generous interior space cabinet for flexible ACS integration Premium quality materials Smooth, swing motion glass barriers Short V-shaped cabinet with ergonomic design and small footprint Flexible lane configurations (including a wide lane for disabled access) Universally understood and proven display symbols Easy, Effective and Efficient Holding back on high-level features and options means that the Speedlane Compact is easy-to-use, easy-to-install, agile in the manufacturing process; and fast to arrive at the customer’s location. When it comes to integration, the product designers have focussed on ease and flexibility. The Speedlane Compact’s wide cabinets allow for integration with many types of technology, including access control such as biometrics and facial recognition. Third-party integration is simple and collaborative technology is even more accessible. Mark de Jong, Product Manager of the Security Products Portfolio at Boon Edam said, “The Speedlane Compact uses advanced algorithms to detect tailgating, piggybacking and other forms of misuse.” He goes on to explain, “The sensors also detect objects – people carrying briefcases and trollies through the speed gate - they are recognised as such, and the product’s behaviour adapts accordingly. These same sensors also make the product 100% safe to use.” Trendy Premium Minimalist Design Ideal for Small Spaces The Speedlane Compact is fashioned to fit into small areas, making it ideal for high-value real estate properties. It does an effective job within a very small space – relieving security personnel and ensuring that only authorised people can enter the designated area. Its small footprint does not compromise in any way on design. “In terms of design, it looks great.” continues Mark “This is a consequence of the Boon Edam design philosophy of ‘premium minimalism’. We use strong lines to create a powerful, yet elegant statement and the tapered design helps it fit in any environment. The overall look is modern yet still warm and visually appealing.” More information, brochures and videos can be viewed here.
