Access Control St Helens
Access Control Systems St Helens
What is Access Control?
The purpose of access control in St Helens is to limit entry to your property to authorised personnel and visitors only. This can be taken one step further by installing a more comprehensive system. This will allow you to provide different levels of authorisation for specific areas within your property. The perfect access control system allows authorised personnel to enter your property unhindered while restricting access for anyone without prior authorisation.
There are a number of different type of physical points of entry that access control can be employed on. This includes doors, gates, fences, barriers, turnstiles and even elevators. Before installing an access control system in St Helens there are a number of factors to be taken into account.

All the work done by our engineers is carried in line with industry code of practice NCP109. This code of practice was updated in September 2013 to ensure it falls in line with the Disability Discrimination Act and the Equalities act of 2012. Every Access control system is now required to be graded in a similar way to burglar alarms. This runs from grade 1 which is to the lowest level of protection to grade 4 which is the highest. The main difference between the two systems is that in the case of access control individual entry points can be separately graded.

Access Control St Helens – Frequently Asked Questions
Which Different Types of Access Control Systems are available to our customers?
Here at Argus Fire and Security we have access to a number of different types of Access Control systems in St Helens. These range from basic stand-alone models right through to cloud based networked systems. Some of the different types of system we are able to offer our clients include:
Basic Keypad Systems: Keypad systems are exactly what you expect, visitors or staff are required to enter a PIN number to enter your premises.
Swipe Card System: With a swipe card system you can supply approved personnel with a swipe card that allows them access. The only real problem with this system is that cards can get lost and possibly fall into the wrong hands.
These two systems are probably now seen as basic systems; however they are a very affordable and reliable option for buildings that have a single entry and exit point.
Proximity Systems: A proximity system is designed so no actual physical contact is required with the access point. You gain entry by using a card or key fob which is held in the proximity of the barrier, gate or other entry point.
Biometric Systems: Once thought to be out of range for smaller businesses due to cost, biometric systems have become much more affordable. Based around fingerprint and retina scanning, biometric systems offer enhanced levels of security and are the perfect choice for sites that have a number of entry and exit points.

Which Access Control System Best Meets the Needs of my Operation
This will be dependent on a number of factors which include the following:
- Level of Security Required
- Number of Access Points
- Whether you are single or multi-site operation
In the case of small businesses with one entry and exit point a keypad or swipe card system will provide an affordable solution. However, in the case of larger operations that have several entry points over one or more locations a networked system is probably a better choice. This allows you to manage several sites from one central location.
