Top Retailer Secures Offices with Fastlane GlassGate
Retailers must regularly work to secure their stores from shoplifting and shrinkage. Some retailers also take steps to secure their offices too. One of our nation’s top 10 retailers recently installed seven lanes of Fastlane GlassGate 200 in its headquarters on the east coast. This is part of a larger agreement to install more lanes at additional offices throughout the country.
GlassGate 200 was selected because of its speed of throughput, reliability, and style. Three-foot glass was chosen to give the lobby environment a more welcoming feel. FastScan™ TVS, a proximity and barcode reader option, was also installed to further increase the traffic speed and to integrate visitors into the primary entrance security process.
Architect & Engineer Resource Center (ARC) Awaits
Architects and engineers have special needs as they design building lobbies. To assist them when they are working with Fastlane turnstiles on lobby projects, Smarter provides the ARC on our new Web site today. Here users will find specifications in the CSI format, CAD files, and high-res images of various Fastlane models installed in lobbies.
Sometimes we help customers with custom designs of Fastlane turnstiles. With this in mind we also have a unique application in the ARC where users can easily view several Fastlane turnstiles in different Rimex® colors. If you are an architect or engineer we invite you to register for access today and begin taking advantage of the resources available to you. If there’s anything else we can offer to assist you in your work, please let us know.

City Deploys SmarterFence at Water and Electric Utility Sites
A city-owned utility in the southern U.S. recently installed SmarterFence at six sites, including water treatment facilities and electric substations. This was the second order from the utility after it had good experiences with SmarterFence at a few other sites. General crime conditions and regulatory requirements have prompted the public utility to make these upgrades to secure the tax-payers’ investment and ensure reliable water and electric services.
SmarterFence is favored by utilities because it is a cost-effective solution for the size of perimeters typically surrounding their field operations. The reliability of and ability to tune out false alarms make this fiber optic fence technology a terrific choice for many organizations seeking robust intrusion detection systems on their fence lines.
