Fastlane GlassGate Chosen for Sleek, Futuristic Design in "Surrogates" Movie
Austin, Texas – September 30, 2009

Smarter Security Systems, provider of intelligent entrance control and outdoor security solutions, today announced its Fastlane GlassGate 200 optical turnstile is featured in the recent release of the motion picture Surrogates. With a robot-themed world of advanced technology, the optical turnstile selected had to be sleek and beautiful. Fastlane was their top choice. At ASIS in Anaheim, California last week, Smarter Security again showed it is the unrivaled provider of lobby security with style.

“Being chosen for inclusion in such a high-tech and high-profile movie underscores the leadership position Fastlane holds in the industry,” said Jeff Brown, President of Smarter Security Systems. “Lobby Security is only growing in importance, and optical turnstiles are a key part of the equation. It was clear from the show floor of the Security industry’s biggest annual event last week that no competitor comes close…Fastlane is leading the industry into the future with innovative benefits and designs.”

GlassGate 200 has prominence in a critical scene in the movie as it provides security for a business office area. The four-foot high glass gate and sleek, stainless steel pedestals complement the surrounding office environment, and the small footprint of the pedestals allowed it to easily fit in the limited space. GlassGate, with its imposing barrier serving as a deterrent, is often selected by architects, end-users, and security consultants alike.

Fastlane optical turnstiles are revered for their elegance yet offer unsurpassed security due to the tailgate detection capability and alarm accuracy enabled by advanced Fastlane technology. At ASIS International, September 21-24, 2009, Smarter Security showcased the breadth of its line, which includes Fastlane Plus barrier arm turnstiles, optical turnstiles, such as ClearStyle, and GlassWing and GlassGate, two varieties of Fastlane speedgates. Smarter Security further distinguishes itself by offering FastScan Tenant/Visitor System to assist organizations in smoothly handling visitor traffic.

Surrogates is a fall blockbuster that opened on screens across the world last weekend. It is a high-action, sci-fi thriller starring Bruce Willis as an FBI agent in a world where people live vicariously through robotic versions of themselves.
