Large Residential

Community Housing

SALTO access control system at The Gatwick

A SALTO access control system was installed at the Gatwick, a community housing facility in Melbourne. The building was a former hotel, and needed a better access control system in place to provide advanced security for residents.

The Gatwick, operated by St Kilda Community Housing Ltd, provides a secure and stable housing environment for disadvantaged people looking for an opportunity for get back on their feet. Some of the residents have a history of mental illness, homelessness, and drug or alcohol dependence.

The need for a new solution arose out of the limitations of the previous mechanical locking system that was in place. This system was proving to be inadequate for the safety of residents, and damage was also being inflicted to the historic building.

A SALTO XS4 Mifate controlled electronic locking system was installed, providing door-level intelligence to control access to external building doors.

“We’re pleased with the finished installation and with the performance of our new SALTO access control system,” says facilities manager Colin Frauenfelder, “It delivers everything we’ve asked of it and we also like the fact that its scalable meaning we can add more doors to the system in future as needed.”

Educational Facilities

Trinity Grammar School

Access Control System at Trinity Grammar School

Trinity Grammar school, located in the eastern Melbourne suburb of Kew, installed a SALTO XS4 and GEO access control system as part of a security upgrade to its premises. With over 1300 students from Early Learning to Year 12, the school was in need of a modern access control upgrade to meet security challenges in a modern education environment.

Access control products from SALTO's XS4 range were installed on over 200 doors across the Kew campus. The combination of Wireless Network and Virtual Network doors gave the school the ability to adjust locking schedules and emergency controls quickly and easily.

Contact-less cards, which also serve as photo ID and computer printing cards, are used by both students and staff to open doors and access resources. The fully programmable system can be easily configured, and lost of stolen cards can be deleted from the system. This functionality also allows the school to manage users and monitor access by seeing who used which door, at what time.

“We’re impressed with the SALTO product,” says Trinity Grammar property manager Hamish McGlashan, “It gives us increased control over our school security. We like its scalability, its solution for every door, ease of use, ability to integrate into other areas and, not least, its cost!”

Stadium & Entertainment

Victorian Racing Club

Kaba access control system

The Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival is a busy time for Melbourne’s horse racing tracks and clubs, with up to 120,000 punters in attendance at each event. With such high volume, the Victorian Racing Club (VRC) required a high volume access control solution to manage the flood of keen Spring Carnival racer-goers at Flemington racecourse.

Kaba Australia upgraded the racecourse's physical access systems, including the entrance infrastructure to the premises. The solution needed to deal with peak volume, and be equipped with scanners that were compatible with multiple ticketing agencies, allowing easy entry into the venue for patrons.

Kaba’s solution was seven new tripod barriers and two service access points at the entrance to the stadium. Each barrier was a mix of single and dual heads, and incorporated full barcode scanning and graphic display functions. Kaba's access control solution also included the upgrade and retro-fit of some of the racecourse’s existing tripod barriers with new scanning housings.

The access control system delivered at the iconic Melbourne location showcases the level of innovation and trust the venue operator had in Kaba. The final solution delivered a safe, secure and efficient access control system for VRC and the venue.

Commercial Enterprise

Digital Reality Melbourne

Kaba Access Control System at Digital Reality

Digital Reality is a global developer and operator of large scale data-centres, with services ranging from Internet enterprises, manufacturing and financial services. Storing and managing sensitive data for a range of high-profile clients means that Digital Reality take security seriously—which is why they developed a access control system in partnership with Kaba.

When a new facility was constructed in Melbourne's CBD, an access control solution was needed to incorporate into a wider security system comprising of cameras and on-site personnel. With these security requirements in mind, Kaba installed two PIL-C01 personal interlocks and a HSG-01E half height sensor gate to the facility.

The half-height sensor gate is part of the security system in the main foyer area. This system means that visitors are required to register with security to gain access, preventing unauthorised access to the site.

For the high-security clearance areas such as the data halls, two PIL-C01 personal interlocks were installed. These interlocks are fully automatic and designed to meet the highest security demands, providing the highest level of security for the sensitive data stores.
