Temporary Intelligent Access Solution for Network Rail Project
Access Control: Enter the Tracks
Loxal was asked to visit the Derby Station Project compound, where £200 million was being invested in improvements in track and signalling, to see how its unique temporary access systems could improve the day-to-day running and organisation of accessing storage and office facilities within the compound.
The compound is where all works are organised, and where all staff and engineers arrive to, and exit from. Access to and from project site is gained via the compound. Temporary site offices, welfare units and storage facilities are all within the compound. Key loss, lock change, site surveys, assisted viewings, temporary access and the associated security issues are a constant problem for site managers.
Loxal has developed a range of secure temporary access control products that streamline access, monitor and audit not only steel security doors, but key safes, gate locks, locking bars and lock conversions. Using the latest technology, Loxal’s Idacs (Intelligent digital access control system) products require no mains power but deliver performance and data you may expect to find on a hard-wired access control system.
The system can operate up to 200 unique user access codes, emergency codes, guard codes and site shut down codes, and all products can be fully integrated into a video verified remote alarm system.
The software that operates each and every one of the product range, has been successfully used on thousands of properties and sites.
Idacs is remote, wireless, and sophisticated access control management software that enables specific users to gain access and be identified on site. Seamless access is coupled with rugged, robust design.
The Derby Project Solution
Using its Idacs products, Loxal was able to produce a keyless compound.
Face Fix Key Lock Box units were installed on two site admin offices, both of which needed to be locked when not occupied.
Idacs codes were issued to all staff members who required and had access rights to the offices. This meant that staff no longer had to carry keys or access keys as and when required.
Block Locks were installed to provide gated access only to approved workmen, with all activity audited by the clever software.
