Better Security – An Advantage for both Customer & Employees: SpeedStile FP: COWI, Lyngby

COWI already had effective perimeter security at its headquarters but wanted to have full control over who was allowed to enter its offices.

COWI A/S is an international consulting group, specialising in engineering, environmental science and economics, based in Denmark. It has been involved in more than 50,000 projects in 175 countries and has approximately 6,400 employees. COWI’s headquarters are located in Lyngby in the north of Copenhagen. The 25,000m2 building has to cater for 1,500 employees as well as business partners, customers and other visitors.

With the Gunnebo SpeedStile FP speed gate, COWI always knows who is present in the building. The speed gates facilitate smooth, quick single-person entry with no hold-ups or queues for the individuals who are coming and going.

In total, eight lanes of speed gates have been installed in the building, four of which are in the reception area. The barrier flaps are 120cm long offering adequate protection and are made of glass so they do not appear obtrusive.

To enter or exit, employees and visitors simply pass their ID card over a card reader. On receipt of an authorisation signal, the barriers slide open and close behind the individual once they have safely passed through.

Entrance control solutions from Gunnebo are compatible with a range of platforms so the speed gates are future-proof if COWI was ever to implement changes to its IT systems.
