Product specification

Unique Patented Solution to Tailgating –

– Creates an infra-red field across a doorway to monitor the passage of every individual passing through the door, only alerting staff to the presence of unauthorised entrants.

– Enforces the “one person one card” rule.

More Secure –

– Increases the security of access controlled doors, even when open. Door Detective maximises the investment in the access control system, integrating seamlessly with all door hardware.

– Can be used to trigger CCTV or to lock doors.

– Helps the access control system maintain anti pass-back integrity.

Direction Sensitive – Door Detective knows which way someone is travelling so if it sees someone go the wrong way it can generate an alarm.

Visitor Entry Systems – Door Detective can be set up to work with visitor entry systems for offices and flats, Door Detective can be set to allow a single person or multiple groups of visitors through without generating an alarm.

Fastest Throughput – Up to 1 person per second means less queues.

Simple Installation and Virtually Maintenance Free

Safety – No physical barrier to cause injury or to impede emergency egress. Compliant with the UK Disabilities and Discrimination Act (DDA).

Discreet – The modern, low-key design guarantees aesthetic acceptability in any location.

Like Having a Guard at the Door 24/7

More Secure – Up to 24 beam IR detection matrix provides unsurpassed tailgate detection and deterrence; tailgaters are detected following as close as 5 mm behind authorised users and are deterred by a physical barrier if they are as close as 150 mm behind. The 2-stage alarm response provides an early audible warning alarm followed by a secondary output for a higher security response e.g. to trigger CCTV or lock doors.

Fastest Throughput – Means a greater return on investment. 1 person per second often means fewer lanes are required, and less wasted time in queues which leads to greater user acceptance.

Unsurpassed Accuracy – Virtually eliminates false alarms. The intelligence of Fastlane plus enables the system to differentiate between body mass and small objects such as umbrellas etc. This increases user and guard acceptance, avoiding “tune-out” and frustration from excessive false alarms.

Most Aesthetic and Streamlined Design – Fastlane plus is an architect-inspired solution; with 1273 mm by 162 mm enclosures, it takes up less space than other systems. The units for wider disabled lanes are the same width as all other pedestals. IDL offers a full design service for custom enclosures, as well as alternative colours and materials.

Easiest Installation and Ongoing Maintenance – CAT 5 interconnections provide plug ‘n’ play simplicity. Industry proven technology and onboard diagnostics to ensure maximum system up-time.

Safety – Fastlane plus features multiple safety beams designed to stop the barrier arms from colliding with users. The units feature a Fire Alarm input to allow for safe, unimpeded emergency evacuation and the 400 series features unique self-resetting break away arms for safer operation.

Secure 2-Stage Alarm Response – Fastlane plus functions automatically and in the event that someone enters without presenting an authorised card an alarm will sound and the barriers will activate to deter the unauthorised entrant. If that person then attempts to push past the barrier arms then a second, louder alarm will sound and a secondary relay will be triggered, which can be used to control stricter security actions such as triggering CCTV, locking doors or controlling elevators. As well as monitoring for unauthorised entry and exit, Fastlane plus can also detect tailgating, collusion, obstruction, non-entry and assist any anti pass-back features in the access control system.

Disabled Access – Fastlane plus is fully compliant with the UK Disabilities and Discrimination Act (DDA), as well as most similar international standards. Audio/Visual feedback is provided as standard and the lane provides for unhindered wheelchair access without the need for a separate passgate.
