Upgrade Campus Access Control - From Existing Exterior Openings to Inside The Classroom
Protecting K-12 students, faculty, and assets during emergency situations and day-to-day operations are an important challenge faced by those tasked with creating and installing access control solutions. We all know time and budget are major influencing factors for K-12 security and facility management teams, but overcoming those obstacles will soon be a thing of the past thanks to the wide range of access control solutions offered by ASSA ABLOY.
Adding access control along the perimeter gate and fence will help prevent unauthorized personnel from gaining access to a school’s campus. Electromagnetic locks, gate locks, and electric strikes from ASSA ABLOY are designed to leverage existing hardware and simplify any necessary upgrades.
Education facilities are in no short supply of exterior openings. Make sure to select mechanical devices, hardwired, or wireless devices based on the specific application, budget, and local codes. Ensure every opening on campus is secured and monitored on the same security system by installing exit devices, electrified dead latches, or other access control solutions that integrate with existing systems.
Access control solutions for interior openings vary by location and use. Electric strikes, exit devices, and electromagnetic locks are mountable on hollow metal, aluminium, and wood doors and help strengthen access control. Access control for education facilities that incorporate glass structures is possible thanks to surface mounted digital glass door locks and wireless readers!
Choosing an incorrectly sized power supply can lead to budgeting issues. By selecting too large of a power supply you risk not only an increase to upfront installation costs, but also future costs such as energy usage.
