Delta Improves Security At Berger Primary School
Berger Primary School has chosen Delta Security to supply and install an EntrySign visitor and employee management system to increase the security and safety of pupils, staff and visitors at the Hackney-based primary school and nursery.
The EntrySign system uses an intuitive, touch-screen interface that significantly enhances visibility as to who is on site at any one time and because it can integrate with all access control systems, it also reduces the investment required at installation.
Steve Gleason, Head Teacher at Berger Primary School, says that security and safe-guarding the children is the school’s utmost priority:
“The new EntrySign installation provides us with reassurance that those in the school are meant to be there and are logged into the system. The system automatically prints out identification stickers, which in addition to enhancing security, also help us to comply with our Offsted requirements.
“The system has also improved employee access, as we now have visibility as to which key fob belongs to who, making replacement straightforward and secure.”
In addition to the EntrySign system, Delta installed a new pedestrian entrance, which gives parents walking to pick up their children a separate access point away from the carpark. This decreased the traffic through reception, improving security and the school’s ability to manage visitor access.
Steve says he would highly recommend both Delta Security and the EntrySign system, especially for schools: “Delta obviously had extensive experience in providing tangible solutions specific to the needs of schools. The installation went smoothly and the system has been easily employed by all those who use it.”
Other benefits to the EntrySign system include pre-booking expected visitors and contractors for even quicker sign in, low running costs as it does not use printer ink, its ability to monitor staff attendance and time-keeping, it is fully compliant with HSE legislation and that it can be personalised to match any corporate identity.
Dave Mundy, Operations Manager for Delta Security is pleased that the system is proving to be so valuable to access control management: “Ensuring the safety of children at school is obviously paramount and the EntrySign system is straightforward and effective in enabling management complete control over access into their facility.”
