DSSL Group installs and maintains integrated security systems within a variety of educational facilities including schools, colleges, early years centres, young people centres and universities. We understand the importance of ensuring works do not disturb student’s education and therefore all installation and maintenance visits will be carefully scheduled ensuring they do not disturb classes.
All of our engineers are security screened and enhanced DBS cleared, allowing them to work around young people.
We recently completed a project with a sixth form college which required full integration of multiple systems on-site. A new site-wide access control system was installed, including four speed gates to the main entrance of the college and 176 doors were secured with fob/card readers. It was essential that the system integrated with the registration/roll call system to provide a live count of students and staff present as they enter rooms as well as recording attendance and punctuality.
In addition to this, visitor stations were installed to the main entrance of the college, this allows guests to book in and in turn, temporary badges are printed for authorised personnel. This was also integrated into the system allowing there to be a record of who is on-site, which is especially useful in the event of an emergency.
