Building Access Control

Physical Access Control refers to the measures and mechanisms implemented to regulate entry and exit to physical spaces, such as buildings, rooms, facilities, or areas within them.


What is Physical Access Control?

Physical Access Control refers to the measures and mechanisms implemented to regulate entry and exit to physical spaces, such as buildings, rooms, facilities, or areas within them.

With the aim of ensuring that only authorised individuals or entities are granted access to these spaces, access control systems offer several advantages over traditional key-based access:

Features and Benefits of Access Control

Protect the physical spaces in your business with our Physical Access Control.

Granular Access Control

Once a physical key is in possession it’s very difficult to manage its use, with access control we can assign different access levels and permissions to individuals based on their roles or needs, limiting access to only the areas they require and the times they can access an area.

System Management

Many access control systems offer remote management capabilities, allowing administrators to monitor and manage access from anywhere with an internet connection.

Versatility and Scalability

Access control systems can easily scale to accommodate the needs of growing organisations or changing security requirements. Adding or removing users, updating access permissions, and integrating new access points can typically be done with relative ease compared to rekeying locks or distributing new keys.


Access control systems can offer convenience compared to traditional keys. Users can simply present a credential, such as a key card or biometric scan, to gain access, eliminating the need to carry multiple keys or remember complex key systems.

Additionally, access control systems can be integrated with other systems, such as time and attendance or visitor management, streamlining administrative tasks.

Enhanced Security

The access control systems we provide incorporate additional security features such as encryption, authentication protocols, and audit trails. This makes it more difficult for unauthorised individuals to gain access through means such as key duplication or theft.

Additionally, access control systems can quickly revoke access privileges for lost or stolen access cards or deactivate credentials of terminated users, enhancing overall security.

Secure your business space with seamless access control.
