Biometric speedstiles: no key, no stop, no problem

In today's world, it's essential for public and commercial buildings to have sound entrance security that can keep the people and assets inside safe from things like attack, vandalism, theft and a range of other threats. 

This need is exacerbated by the fact that these spaces – like libraries, office buildings, hotels, stadiums and public transport hubs – are generally incredibly accessible to the public. The problem then for the architects and builders of these sites is keeping unauthorised people out while still allowing for a pleasant, convenient experience for those who are meant to be there. 

At Gunnebo, we design our entrance control solutions with you and your customers in mind in order to ensure that your building stands out and is widely used for years to come. Our latest speedstiles – fitted with biometric authorisation – allow patrons to navigate your building quickly, easily and most of all, securely. 

Seamlessness: ultimate goal in public and commercial spaces

From the time they approach the building to the time they leave, nothing should slow down or inconvenience your guests. This, however, can't come at a cost to the security of the building, its people and assets.

Many builders and designers make the mistake of utilising security products and solutions that – although they'll keep the building secure – do so at a cost to customer convenience. At Gunnebo, your customers are at the centre of all of our security solutions, and one of the best examples of this is our latest speedstile integrated with innovative biometric authorisation.

The case for biometric entrance control

Last month at the Security Expo in Sydney, Gunnebo displayed its new speedstile with add-on APAC biometric authorisation. As you can see, once recognised by the system, entrants don't even need to pause for admission.

Gunnebo speedstiles:

  • Allow a greater flow of people, up to 40 per minute while maintaining security
  • Optimise functionality through contactless barrier control with over 50 parameter settings and user information displays
  • Enhance the appearance of your site due to attractive design and a number of finish options
  • Maintain the highest level of security thanks to our algorithm for fraudulent passage that can detect tailgating, wrong way direction, piggybacking, crawling and leave lane time out 
Gunnebo's biometric speedstiles allow for seamless entrance control. Gunnebo's biometric speedstiles allow for seamless entrance control.

Biometrics are nearly impossible to replicate and if they're lost – well, the least of your worries will be getting into your building. There are many benefits of biometric authentication, including:

  • Minimised costs on keys, cards and other devices
  • Identification can't be forgotten or lost
  • Credentials can't be transferred
  • Enhanced security

What makes the biometric authorisation we've integrated into our speedstiles superior, however, is that they streamline the entrance control process and they allow your guests to pass through without even pausing for feature recognition. This is the type of solution you need to implement if you want your building to be used (and enjoyed) over time.
