Buildingtalk’s Video of the Week takes us to Russell Square, Camden, as we look at a bespoke locking solution created by Abloy UK for ART Security Solutions (ART), to secure up to 1,000 Pod Works phone box workstations across the UK.

Created using the iconic BT telephone boxes, Pod Works workstations include Wi-Fi, plug sockets, internet connection, printer, scanner, VOIP phone and free tea and coffee – all secured by an Abloy UK system comprising an EL490 electric motor lock alongside interior and exterior keypads.

The solution enables secure and safe electric control locally and remotely. Users can log themselves in and out of the ‘Pod’ using interior and exterior keypads or use the pod’s unique electronic handle that becomes live in the event of an emergency or power failure.

The EL490 motor lock also features a secure external override and offers a manual escape at all times. The locks have been fire tested and provide automatic deadlocking.
