Bull Products, a manufacturer of life-saving fire protection equipment, is taking construction safety to new heights, with the launch of a new access control solution.
The Bull SmartGate System offers complete control of access to site. Using turnstiles, the system can be joined together to ensure quicker access for larger volumes of people accessing a site. These can be installed inside an existing building or at the entrance to a site.
The turnstiles can be interfaced with temporary emergency alarm systems which will allow the turnstile to rotate freely, enabling a quick escape in the event of a site evacuation.
The SmartGate System features an Infobric Cloud Attendance Software, providing construction sites with a simple way of keeping track of the presence on site.
The technology allows sites to monitor who is on the construction site, how long they are there and how much time they are spending on projects. In addition, workers can add additional units to control registration and presence as the site grows.
Bradley Markham, Director at Bull Products, says: “During construction developments, managers need to be able to effectively control and keep track of those entering and exiting the site as well as ensuring projects are delivered on time. Our SmartGate System provides a reliable and smart process to maximise site protection, enhance health and safety and ensure site managers stay in full control of their site around the clock.
“We are delighted to be bringing a new innovation to the market that incorporates the latest technology to offer an all-in-one access control solution.”
The SmartGate System also features Ievo Biometric Hardware which has been designed to offer an additional layer of security for sites. Using multispectral imaging (MSI), it can capture levels of skin debris (up to 4mm deep) of a finger, which allows for a high number of uniquely identifiable data points to be recognised and used for a more accurate and efficient process.
The Ievo Biometric Hardware is also equipped with an internal thermostat-controlled heater and the fingerprint reader can operate in conditions as low as -20°C and is IP65 rated, making it suitable for a range of weather conditions.
The turnstiles can be delivered to site with a fully integrated attendance software, including biometric and card readers for a full end-to-end solution. There are three options available; single turnstile unit, double turnstile unit and cabin turnstile unit.
