The Tharston Consultancy
One source for everything you need to know about keeping your people, property and premises secure.
Access Control is the art of allowing access to a room, building or facility to selected people at selected times. The person is identified by something they have (like a key),something they know (like a code) or something they are (like a fingerprint).
Access can be controlled by doors fitted with electric locking hardware, turnstiles, gates, and vehicle barriers.
In spite of the need for security it may be necessary in an emergency to allow free exit and this conflict between safety, security and convenience is what complicates the choice of solutions. We can guide you through the maze without incurring vast expenditure or making life difficult for users.
