Airport Security Locking and Access Control Solutions

Abloy UK currently supply mechanical locks and electromechanical access control solutions across the majority of Critical National Infrastructure. Abloy are world renowned experts in the specification and supply of high security solutions for the Energy, Water, Communications, MoD, Rail and Airport sectors. Abloy possess an unrivalled level of compliant and secure products, including solutions to secure both Airside and Landside areas, air traffic control, transit hubs, hangars, engineering services, retail, airline operators and service providers etc.

Abloy are also able to provide solutions to achieve dynamic lockdown in airports; an organisation will need the ability to quickly restrict access and egress to a site or building – or areas in the building – through physical measures in response to a threat, either external or internal. The aim is to cordon off areas to prevent the attackers from accessing them, and also stop people moving into zones that may be of danger. A key aspect of achieving dynamic lockdown is ensuring the correct access control systems are in place. So when it comes to specifying security solutions for these types of doors, what’s the best solution? Electric locks – such as the Abloy EL560 solenoid lock and EL520 motorised lock – work by controlling either the latch or the handle, or by motorising the dead bolt when an access token is presented or a request to exit device is used. This ensures that only authorised personnel are able to gain access to the building, and the system will prevent any unauthorised persons from entering, whilst always maintaining a fully compliant means of escape.

The product range includes LPCB-rated (LPS 1654) master keyed security cylinders, padlocks, low energy electronically controlled security and escape locks, door operators, fire and SR rated security doors and key management systems. One of the most secure solutions is PROTEC2 CLIQ, a Cloud based electro-mechanical security management solution that allows for the remote management of large sites at any time, from anywhere. The PROTEC2 CLIQ system provides comprehensive audit trails on cylinders and padlocks, recording who used each key, where and when, with the ability to remove permissions for lost or stolen keys, thereby providing secure key management. The latest innovation – CLIQ Connect – utilises a revolutionary AES encrypted online management system that uses advanced Bluetooth 4.0 technology, enabling users to update keys from their smartphone.

Extensive periods of construction and renovation work means staff and contractors need to be granted access to a wide range of restricted areas at all times. To achieve the security necessary, several of our airport clients are benefiting from the use of Protec2 CLIQ.

Features CLIQ provides include:

  • – Authorised time and date controlled access for staff and contractors
  • – Ability to enable and revoke key authorisation remotely
  • – Substantial operational efficiencies
  • – Full Audit trail reports
  • – Delete lost / stolen keys
  • – Integration with permit to work, asset management and HR systems
  • – 100% control of all keys, 100% of the time

    Electric locks

    Abloy has launched a range of electric locking solutions that blend high security with eco-friendliness in the same lock, especially in comparison to door magnets.

    In instances where the energy consumption of a building needs to be reduced, electric locks are an ideal solution to help increase energy efficiency. Door magnets have traditionally been the standard choice for access control points in commercial buildings, but electric locks are actually a more energy efficient solution. This is because door magnets require an electric current to lock the door, whereas an electric lock only uses power to open the door, meaning they do not consume as much electricity.

    The locking solutions are fast and easy to install, and are also compatible with traditional devices. By selecting our electric locks, specifiers can ensure that they are choosing a system that not only allows for swift and easy access and egress alongside an enhanced security provision, but they are also reducing the energy consumption and carbon footprint of a building too. Abloy Electric Locks also comply with the new Standard EN13637 for access control escape doors, as well as EN1125 and EN179.
