Tewkesbury Primary Care Centre - Product: SBL365.SL/91 Mechanical Digital Lock with Sash Lock. Tewkesbury's new £7.5 million super-surgery occupying 2,200 square metres over three storey’s has been built on the old hospital site in Barton Road.

They will now have twice the space to house meeting rooms, a staff room, medical records, additional parking facilities and engineering plant, creating a one-stop primary care facility for the people of Tewksbury and the surrounding area, with sufficient space for a minor operation suite and pharmacy. The new centre will be called The Devereux Centre after the late Tewkesbury doctor Dr William Charles Devereux and will cater for up to 30,000 patients which are 5,000 more than the current two practices together. The SBL365.SL/91 Mechanical Digital Lock with Sash Lock was chosen throughout the building, so that rooms can be entered with a code without having to carry fobs, cards or keys, with the facility that a key holder could lock the door by key if they wish to close off that particular room. The Securefast Mechanical Digital Lock has been tested to 200,000 cycles and fire rated making the product ideal for a cost effective access control system without the heavy investment in wiring and electronics.

This is an exciting new three-story development complete with the sports hall and outdoor sports facilities, all ready for the new school term in September and beyond. Keith Clare-Brown, director of Tate Solutions commented “School security is probably one of the most sensitive issues facing today’s head teachers and trustees. Problems can happen very quickly due to a wide range of incidents including strangers coming into the school, violent actions by children, parents or staff, burglary, theft and arson to name but a few”. “With this in mind pupils need to know they have a safe place in which to be educated and that staff are in a safe place in which to work. Delivering on that is a given but it is not always easy to achieve”. Keith added “Further problems arise from the fact that while everyone wants their school to be safe, no-one wants it to end up looking look like a prison with high walls and fences. While all of this may make a building secure, it is not user friendly. Our aim was to achieve a sensible balance, implementing sufficient levels of security to cope with perceived threats while providing a pleasant environment in which to learn and work”. To complement their newly constructed school, Heath Park called on Tate Solutions to provide the very latest security system that ensured strictly controlled access into the building, whilst allowing free movement within the facility. The system selected to deliver these objectives was SALTO’s high specification XS4 proximity wireless based solution, which incorporates the very latest technology that provides a safe, secure and almost totally keyless environment for the benefit of both staff and pupils. The XS4 solution is a state-of-the-art electronic lock system that programmes contactless smartcards to allow access to specific class rooms or other areas for selected time periods only, with the doors auto locking at pre-specified times. If security is breached due to the loss or theft of a card, it can be instantly deleted from the system without the need or cost of changing any locks – saving the school time and money. For further information on SALTO XS4 and other access control and security solutions please contact the Tate Solutions team at Securefast plc on 01543 501605 or visit the web site www.securefast.co.uk for a comprehensive insight to our complete range of products.

Tate Solutions help out at Retirement Home - Beech Court Retirement homes in Solihull were built in 1989 with 32 flats, several bungalows and cottages within the grounds Tate Solutions were asked to automate the original main entrance doors, therefore a detailed risk and hazard assessment was conducted on the doors before any work could be carried out. Examination revealed that the overhead door closers were not functioning correctly, due to excessive wear and the doors would have to be removed and repaired. After a number of meetings with the Facilities Team and the residents committee, it was agreed that we would supply and install an automatic door solution to comply with BS7036 and BSEN16005. The doors were automated using Tate EMD operators, because of their ability to be programmed for any situation, their durability and longevity. Activation was via motion radars fitted with external weather shrouds. Both doors were fitted with on-door safety devices to stop the doors closing and opening on users who may be in the way of the opening/closing cycle of the doors. As the doors were centre hung and the gap between the frame and doors was approximately 50mm, which would cause a problem with finger/hand entrapment. Safety and injury prevention is paramount, therefore in order to assist with compliance to BS7036 and BSEN16005 a pivot safe anti-finger trap system was used, which ensures continual safe and virtually maintenance-free operation. A key switch at a safe working high of 1500mm was fitted to enable the Facilities Team to turn the units on/off or put the automatic units into the hold open position, thus allowing the residents to move large bulky equipment or furniture through the doors safely. The whole installation, including the removal of the doors, commissioning and training the staff was completed in one day causing a minimum amount of disturbance to staff and residence. Residences are now finding access is much easier with one resident stated “It’s the first time in 3 years that I have been able to use the main entrance doors on her own without assistance, from either carers or staff.
