Fastlane Glasswing Turnstiles to Help Company Stay Ahead of DHS Regulations and Protect its People and Sensitive Chemical Information
Austin, Texas – June 30, 2015

Smarter Security, Inc., provider of premium, innovative entrance control and outdoor security solutions, today announced a leading chemical company ordered Fastlane Glasswing optical turnstiles for a building on the east coast. DHS directives for chemical companies moved the company to better control the entry to the office building and witnessing the operation and beauty of Fastlane turnstiles installed nearby was compelling.

“The continued threats of domestic and foreign terrorism make securing our chemical industry vitally important,” said Jeff Brown, CEO of Smarter Security. “We are pleased to be trusted with helping this company improve its building security. There is an increased demand for Fastlane turnstiles across industries and throughout the United States as organizations use this time of relative prosperity to automate and strengthen entrance control in their facilities.”

This chemical industry leader ordered five lanes of Fastlane Glasswing from Smarter Security to more effectively control visitors and employees entering the main lobby and to restrict access on an upper floor of a building in the eastern United States. The systems integrator had a positive prior experience with Smarter Security and took its client to observe Glasswing installations. The aesthetics and quiet, reliable operation of the lanes handling a high flow of people convinced the end user to go with Fastlane. The chemical company also chose Fastlane Infill to block off parts of the lobby and guide workers to enter through the security lanes.

Smarter Security’s Fastlane Glasswing is unique in the Fastlane line as it is the only model with retracting glass barriers. It comes in three lane widths from 22” to the standard of 36” for ADA. The glass barriers retract upon authorization and quickly reset to block any tailgating attempt. Ample safety beams prevent the angel-wing-shaped barriers from striking people in the lane. Fastlane optical technology alarms any piggybackers or unauthorized users and a separate alarm sounds when the barriers are forced open by hand. Glasswing is one of many Fastlane turnstiles with a UL 2593 listing.
