For sophisticated architectures
Companies, cultural institutions and public facilities increasingly want to systematically register the presence of employees and visitors in order to automate certain processes and increase the security of their premises. Whereby the design of the access control system plays a central role in more sophisticated work and experience environments. As one of the first stations on the way into the building it should underline the architectural aspiration and provide those entering with a friendly reception.

The mTripod access control system from Magnetic was designed for precisely these applications. With its extremely slender design, its curved lines, and its unusual illumination at the base and on the frame edges it is ideal for integration in sophisticated architectures whilst, at the same time, the material mDure makes a unique impression on first contact. Instead of cold and hard like stainless steel, mDure feels soft and comfortable, emphasising the open character of the new generation of products.

Standards, however, are also set beneath the smart outer skin. With its intuitive control system, extraordinary range of functions, and future-oriented connections, the mTripod redefines access control systems.

Award-winning design

Design und Qualität Bild

mTripod’s use in high-quality environments was a central focus during its development. The design, which has already won the German Design Award, blends in perfectly in modern architecture.

Comprehensive functions

Discreet illumination, interlocking to prevent unauthorised entry, drop-arm for maximum safety – the mTripod has numerous unique functions. Features such as error logging and a random generator are already part of the basic functionality.

Direct control

The integrated display allows all settings to be made directly via the control system – without any adapter cable and notebook. System diversity and training expenditure are considerably reduced because we also use the MGC control system in our vehicle barriers.
