Automated Security Doors

Automated Security Doors

Government facilities and offices, including police stations, courthouses, and critical infrastructure, have an unparalleled need for automated access control. Automated security doors provide a number of advantages overmanned or guarded entrances.; as they are automatically controlled by Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and configured to perform to best suit the specific needs of your site.

Isotec’s “Auto Attendant” feature enables our commercial security doors to act independently of human interface in a fully automated capacity. While additional sensors in the security door include a metal detector, occupancy and motion detectors, still and video cameras, and left object detection sensors.

The frames and glazing materials have a UL 752 ballistic capability, meaning that they can be designed to withstand high powered rounds from an AK-47.

Does My Facility Need a Commercial Security Door?

Commercial security doors are typically used to prevent weapons from entering a building or to prevent tailgating. Since no two buildings are alike, Isotec’s commercial entrance systems manufacturers specialize in site-specific designs that match the aesthetics of the buildings they protect. For instance:

A government building will require far more stringent protocols than that of a school or hospital; as varied levels of security are imperative to the safety and security of the building in question. Government security door systems are also designed for weapons detection, access control, and materials control to guard against theft, and to prevent harmful substances from entering the facility.

So by using automated security doors you can guarantee 100% objectivity to perform as required to maintain facility safety and security. In fact, using this style of commercial entrance systems allows you to save money, as these automated entrances more economical than manned entrances, and usually, they pay for themselves in less than 2 years.

The Isotec Difference

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 automates security door entrances.

Isotec’s automated security door systems can have as many lanes as required by a facility. Most systems are either single or two-lane systems.

A single lane system operates in two modes, an Entrance Mode, and an Exit Mode. It can serve as an entrance and exit, while a two-lane system usually has an entrance lane and an exit lane. While in Entry Mode, the entrance lane system enforces anti-tailgating, weapons and access control for entering the facility. When in Exit Mode the system is programmed to prevent re-tracking or pass back into the facility

A two-lane system prevents, tailgating, weapons and unauthorized personnel from entering a facility, while its exit lane prevents pass back or re-tracking back into the facility.
