Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 30, 2009 -- Smarter Security Systems, provider of intelligent entrance control and outdoor security solutions, today announced the availability of its new Fastlane GlassGate 400 optical turnstile. The new product offers the highest security in the Fastlane line and is elegantly designed to complement the aesthetics of premium Class A buildings and well-appointed corporate headquarters.
"The new GlassGate 400 is a powerful addition to the Fastlane brand. Until now, we have not tried to compete in the higher security "full-height" arena. Like previous additions to the brand, GlassGate 400 advances the category by adding significant new features and benefits," said Jeff Brown, President of Smarter Security Systems. "Unlike others, Fastlane ensures that high security doesn't have to compromise looks. We showed it at ISC West in Las Vegas earlier this month, and many attendees complimented the GlassGate 400's unique design."
GlassGate 400 offers the same tailgate detection and alarm accuracy for which Fastlane is recognized, and changes to the barrier further increase lobby entrance control. The glass gates rise to six feet off the ground making it much more difficult to go over the barrier and making any attempt a more obvious offense. The barrier glass also comes with a brake that resists efforts to push open the gates, thereby not just alarming intruders but stopping them at the turnstile. Some customers will prefer the safety of breakaway glass gates, which is why GlassGate 400 gives them a choice. This "brake" can be turned on or off by the end user after installation, adaptability that is unique in the industry.
GlassGate 400 features open air sides, another industry first. With no metal side panels and the transparent glass of the gates, Fastlane GlassGate 400 blends into the fabric of a lobby like no other turnstile system; the architectural aesthetics of any lobby can actually be seen through the optical turnstile. This results in a minimal impact on the lobby appearance and is a design that will appeal to architects and end users alike. Also available with this turnstile is the option to put a gate on each side of any pedestal for adjacent ADA lanes, which saves customers both space and money.
GlassGate 400 is one of many optical turnstile models offered by Smarter Security that utilize intelligent Fastlane technology. In 2008, the GlassGate line was a prominent factor in the company achieving record revenue.
