Leave a Comment

Construction work on the Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH) building is nearly complete, a news report in the local media reveals.

The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH) is designed to encourage collaboration between humanities and other academics, disciplines, divisions, partners, institutions and the wider public.

It will also be used for hosting conferences, workshops, summer schools and visiting academic programmes.

"It’s providing us with a space for collaboration between different academics and different disciplines, for incubating new research ideas, and it’s also a space to enable us to engage more with members of the public who might be interested in our research and to bring those into the University of Oxford to discuss our research with us" said professor Shearer West, head of the humanities division at the University of Oxford.

Of course, such a public-facing building will certainly require a solid, reliable, yet quite affordable access control system, and this is exactly where the Access Control UK will be able to demonstrate its extensive experience in the field.

The most interesting offering in our extensive lineup is represented by the Access Lite.NET/Enterprise.NET systems, capable of providing from one access control point to a multi-site network of scanners and clocks. Suitable for any organisation, the Lite / Enterprise range is capable of controlling a network across borders and even continents.

The systems are easily operated by contactless smart cards, which means that access is granted / denied instantly. Furthermore, the systems can also work with physical security devices and have no limits in terms of the number of employees registered.

Additional extra features worth mentioning include two-factor authentication through biometrics, as well as the fast and easy integration with other systems.

If you’d like to find out more about the access control systems developed by Access Control UK, just contact us, we’ll be sure to answer all of your questions and queries.
