The challenge

Arabian Center HQ, management office tower of U-Walk Mall in KSA was looking for a touchless solution to manage their access control for employees from the basement parking.
The Arabian Center needed speed gates to control the staff and visitor flow entering and exiting their offices from the underground parking entrance.

The requirements

The Arabian Center required a solution that allowed staff easy access and to prevent other people from accessing the area without authorization. As an extra provision, Arabian Center required a second level of security after gate barrier access into the parking basement to ensure only authorized personnel had access to the Arabian Centre offices.

The solution

The solution was to install pedestrian speed gates to manage access control.
Installation was carried out by Quadra-Tech and IDEMIA supplied wave readers as touchless access reader integration. Total number of lanes: 16 mWing® wing gates by FlowMotion®.
