The Isotec Difference
Isotec’s “Auto Attendant” feature enables our automated security doors to act independently of human interface in a fully automated capacity. While additional sensors in the security entry door include a metal detector, occupancy and motion detectors, still and video cameras, and left object detection sensors. The frames and glazing materials of the automated security doors have a UL 752 ballistic capability, meaning that they can be designed to withstand high powered rounds from an AK-47.
In 2012, Isotec’s automated security doors were awarded the Certificate of Designation by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as Qualified Anti-terrorism Technologies. This approval allows for certain liability protections against acts of terrorism. In addition to legal protections, the DHS has set the safety and security standards for automated security door entrances.
