Aintree University Hospital in Liverpool recently sought an upgrade to its access control following a £35 million refurbishment.

Flexible access control that could streamline day-to-day security operations, extending public access while also maintaining restrictions to sensitive areas, was required by the hospital trust as well as a wire-fire system, allowing installation to be done quickly and efficiently at low cost with minimum disruption.

Seamless integration between hardware provided by multiple suppliers – including a pre-existing third-party access control system – and a solution that is cost-effective, was also crucial.

ASSA ABLOY partnered with Grantfen and Inner Range to deliver a unified platform, extending the responsive Integriti access control system with ASSA ABLOY’s Aperio wireless battery-powered escutcheons.

Grantfen’s General Manager, Sue McIntyre, said Aperio was a straightforward solution with a particularly useful feature for installing the system quickly and efficiently, without disrupting operations within the live building.

Complex, expensive electrical work during installation wasn’t necessary, due to the Aperio locks being wireless. In addition, Aperio locks are efficient as they only “wake up” when activated by user credential.

Aperio’s integration with the existing access control system is seamless due to being built on open architecture. Maintenance is simple with standard batteries used to power Aperio. Plus, it isn’t difficult to bring even more wireless locks into the hospital’s existing access system as the refurbishment continues, as Aperio is fully scalable and works with all major standard RFID technologies.
