Modern security systems for construction sites have seen a rise in popularity especially turnstiles and other Pedestrian Entrance Control (PEC) devices. They can come in the form of a completely new installation or a long overdue upgrade in the access control security system for the site.
Reasons for the rise in demand:
- Replace outdated turnstile systems
- Increased security concerns over workplace violence and the threat of terrorism
- More and more need for access control systems to reduce manpower costs
- Property owner/renters expect automated access control systems already installed
In the past the control of building or construction site access by visitors and workers has been hard to maintain. What is more, the theft of items on-site cost the construction industry millions of pounds every year. Bison Security has made a simple yet very effective solution to this issue in the form of a totally self-contained entry system that has a stand-alone access control as well as including recording software. The Bison building site turnstile includes a full height control system to manage the flow of workers inside and outside of the construction site, and an adjoining one leaf gate to let tools and equipment through the entry point.
The gate and turnstile are powered and controlled by a computer access control system that is able to store the information of thousands of workers, and records the entry and exit of the aforementioned workers. This software enables you to assign access passes with diverse entry permissions for diverse classification of personnel, for example, guests can be given access cards that are valid only for one day, while construction workers can be given a card that allows admission to the construction site throughout the week and on any certain day. The need for several different levels of access rights are most likely to be necessary, and access cards therefore access times can be voided and modified at any time to regulate a persons access if deemed necessary.
Bison Security building site turnstile system could be made as well as customized in order to address the exact needs of the project. The company offer a full access control solution to fit all needs and requirements:
- Double turnstile, half and full height, in cabin and base plate
- Biometric turnstile might utilise fingerprint readers for in and out access
- Healthy and safety compliance
- Remote access to manage from wherever
- Time and attendance for employers and sub-contractors
- Environmental impact
- Project site summary
- Project risk management
- Muster Reports for Health and Safety
- Contractor and individual summary
- Who is on Site now?
What are the Benefits of the Bison Building Site Turnstile?
Access Control Incorporation
Our turnstile integrate easily with a construction access control system and other safety tools like cameras to make sure only authorised personnel can enter the facility.
Our turnstile offers better access control through detecting as well as deterring unauthorised entries. When going into a construction site, the main door is often the initial point of entry. Adding a access card is a common solution for controlling entry. While locks require the cards to have an applicable credential to unlock the door, it can control the time the door is open as well as the number of people going inside. Unauthorised individuals could follow authorised workers through the secured door, leading to a common safety issue that is called “tailgating” (can be called piggybacking), and is one of the most widespread security breaches affecting companies today, our systems reduce that situation from occurring in the first place
Our turnstiles boost construction operations through streamlining the admission or access process; this allows the guards to be effective and efficient with their time on-site. What is more, the turnstile is also capable of accommodating an extensive selection of credential readers such as magnetic stripe, barcode, biometric, and proximity. Turnstiles that are equipped with readers allow the user to show their credentials to achieve entry to the premises or site.
“Bison security installed a new CCTV and turnstile access control systems at 3 of our construction building sites and upgraded the old analog CCTV system to crystal clear IP HD CCTV cameras to one of buildings. I must say – absolutely awesome installations with quality they have done at every time. They very cooperative, helpful so many times and worked accordingly to what I want. Definitely hire again.” – Joe T. – Site Manager
