Aperio® provides future-proofed access control for new £15m London office

  • 30 Jul 2019

Aperio® offers the ideal solution for modern offices, with powerful and flexible access control that is aesthetically in tune with workspace users.

Plexal, a new £15 million flexible work environment for East London’s “innovation community”, recently required a tried-and-tested access control solution they could rely on.

It was crucial that the installation was quick and easy, non-disruptive, and flexible enough to expand access control as Plexal’s site scales over time.

As a result, the Aperio® wireless, access card-based locking technology was installed at Plexal. The battery-powered Aperio® locks are integrated with DoorFlow, NetNodes’ online platform for managing and auditing building access.

So far, 59 Aperio® L100 wireless high-security door locks have been installed and integrated online with DoorFlow. These Aperio® locks provide Plexal with a high level of physical protection and transmit door status to DoorFlow in real-time.

Because Aperio locks are battery- rather than mains-powered, the new wireless solution also keep Plexal’s maintenance costs and energy consumption low. Aperio® wireless locks use no power when idle, only “waking up” to read credentials or maintain a system heartbeat. Annual running cost savings over traditional wired doors are significant.

Aperio® aesthetics were a good fit for Plexal’s modern workspace, according to John Herbert, Facilities Manager at Plexal: “We have a futuristic-style, open-plan design here at Plexal — our offices are predominantly glass-fronted, so we needed an effective design which was not only robust but adaptable, too”.

And because Aperio® technology is built on an open platform for integration with almost any security or building management system, Plexal’s access control solution is fully future-proofed. They have the option to expand to new offices, floors or even buildings easily. Aperio® can upgrade mechanically locked doors and wirelessly connect them — online or offline — to new or existing access control systems. This is achieved with minimal modification to doors and premises, offering a simple, cost-effective security upgrade.

“Should any additional doors need to be added to the system in the future, this can be done easily, without modifying or changing the aesthetics of the environment,” confirms Stewart Johnson. “This also minimises future installation costs, offering a cost-effective and straightforward access control upgrade.
