Two access control lanes from Fastlane were chosen for Cleveland State University’s new apartment-style accommodation, which would house over 600 students in four buildings.
The University wanted a system which would put a stop to unauthorised entries without residents feeling like they were living in a cage, so Fastlane Plus lanes were chosen to provide the required level of security whilst also complementing the buildings’ state-of-the-art features.
Because of its sleek design, Fastlane Plus also proved to be the most suitable choice due to the limited space available in the lobby. A modification was made to base unit, making the alarm sound louder and more obtrusive to enable it to better cut through even the loudest of student background noise.
Commenting on the project, Ken Murphy, Director of Security at CSU, said: “We’re pleased to report that there have been no issues with the Fastlane Plus units, despite heavy use and occasional messing-around by students. The University has been very happy with the end result – students feel psychologically more secure, parents have peace-of-mind knowing that the turnstiles provide greater physical security and the turnstiles have been incredibly reliable.”
