Whilst the traditional Interlocking Door System (two hinged doors) can be utilised, these systems tend to occupy significantly more floor space.
With Interlocking Pods, the holding area is a modest space between the two doors. This benefit is achievable thanks to the unique nature of the semicircular doors.
Incorporating the holding area within the Pod could reduce the need for security staff having to monitor other larger areas.
Interlocking Doors utilise two doors, to create three separate zones, of different security requirements.
These three zones, and the protocols associated can affect the way pedestrian traffic flows in each direction. Combinations of Access Control Media and other sensors can be utilised in each of these three zones, to manage the control of access.
All safety and security functions within the door's software/hardware can be adjusted according to time, date and various Access Control parameters, on the fly.
Regardless of the sophisticated electronic security protocols and monitoring systems put in place, the physical security of the units is important, as this will always be the last line of defence.
Constructed from a variety of security glass (BR3S P6B), and reinforced steel, as stand-alone units these pods provide excellent physical protection for all three zones of the interlocking system.
Separate levels of security protocol can be applied, via Access Control, in all three of the zones created by the Interlocking Door System.
1) Long-range Access Control Media on the person could open the first door, for speed of access. The first door could then lock behind them. 2) Further recognition could be required, such as biometrics (face recognition, weight, fingerprint scans), to open the next door. 3) Further manned / CCTV checks could be implemented within the reception area, once they have passed through the second door.
In addition to the automated/electronic Access Controls Systems and manned monitoring staff, there are also some interesting features which can be implemented.
Coming in both square and circular formats, Interlocking Pods provide a premium finish to the front of a building.
Few door solutions look this stunning.
