Thorofare, NJ, – July, 23, 2013 – Checkpoint Systems, Inc. (NYSE: CKP), a leading global manufacturer of shrink management solutions, today announced its new underfloor Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) antenna designed primarily for luxury and high-end retailers who require a discreet but high-performance security system. Hundreds of EVOLVE Exclusive F10 are already in retail stores around the world delivering exceptional results in reducing shrink, improving merchandise availability and helping to enhance the consumer shopping experience.
Designed primarily for luxury apparel, jewelry or accessory retailers for whom store aesthetics is paramount, the EVOLVE Exclusive F10 sits below the shop’s floor while still providing excellent range of detection. The system can be configured to cover entrance doorways of up to 12m/ 39.4ft wide addressing some retailers’ preferences for an open entrance without visible antennas. Now department stores in a mall setting have a viable solution to protect their multiple entrances.
Farrokh Abadi, president and chief operating officer, Shrink Management and Merchandise Visibility Solutions, said, “We designed this new ''invisible´´ EAS solution by partnering with some luxury brands for whom creating a positive shopping experience for customers was as important as protecting their merchandise. We are proud that our new underfloor EVOLVE Exclusive F10 meets their requirements with regard to merchandise protection as well as the aesthetics and design of their floor space.”
Checkpoint designed the EVOLVE Exclusive F10 to protect the large aisle widths of many store entrances and withstand the heavy weights associated with high traffic and goods moving through a retail store entrance.
