IMB Banks on Boon Edam’s Elegant Entrance Security at New Wollongong Building
Boon Edam Inc. has announced that IMB Bank in Australia has installed a series of Boon Edam entrances, including all glass revolving doors, slimline optical turnstiles and a swinging access gate at its new building in Wollongong, New South Wales.
IMB moved into the new building in early 2021, and immediately sought to make the entrance open and welcoming to visitors, with entrance security inside to protect valuable data, intellectual property and people. The technology that was selected is among the most stylish and efficient of the Boon Edam range and used by major banks locally, Fortune 500 companies globally and corporate headquarters in 27 countries.
The exterior of the building has two Boon Edam Crystal TQ all-glass revolving doors, which create a striking first impression. Inside in the main lobby, there are three Speedlane Lifeline Swing optical turnstiles, including one wide lane suitable for disabled access. In another interior location. There also is a Winglock Swing access gate, which separates a designated meeting space.
Intuitive and Welcoming Solutions
“After reviewing a range of product proposals, we found that Boon Edam’s range had the ideal combination of aesthetics and security that IMB was seeking,” said Greg Dowd, head of facilities at IMB. “The security turnstiles give us greater control over access to the building, and they alert us to any tailgating or access breaches. Limiting access to only authorized personnel not only protects our staff, but it also protects the data of our customers, which we always store securely.
“As a further advantage, the Boon Edam team integrated the access control system with our RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) system. This was a big help, because it meant the turnstiles weresending data directly to our existing system.”
