Fast exit via break glass unlocks doors in an emergency at a site
An environmental site was considered too dangerous according to inspectors. Their verdict was the landfill facility run by Swansea council could have an explosion or fire. The report said waste had been spread over a gas collection main. It continued: “There is no conceivable reason or justification for this poor practice and measures to ensure no re-occurrence must be implemented with immediate effect.” The Environment Agency Report added: “This failure raises serious concerns over the general management of day-to-day activities.”
Biometric and Smart Card Scanning Systems from Access Control UK enable fast entry and exit when evacuation procedures occur at a site. The picture shows how to use the T3511 scanner controller with two Smart Card readers to control entry and exit. The T3511 can differentiate which reader was used so you know who is left in the building. This is essential for producing an accurate Fire Roll Call register. A break glass unlocks the door, from the inside, in an emergency.
