For safety and security monitoring, site access to construction sites should always be controlled and in most instances, users must be verified. Our POD is an access control system that allows you to do both with our state-of-the-art biometric technology that accurately measures site attendance and ensures that only certified and verified users can access your Project.

The units are pre-built and tested in our dedicated workshop and have been designed to be true plug and play without a need for an engineer on site, reducing carbon emissions and improving efficiency. As a rapidly deployable solution our pods are modular and scalable for larger projects as well as being easy to relocate on site.

Our POD is built and manufactured in the UK and includes a ruggedised full height turnstile of the highest quality, ensuring only the right people are entering and exiting your construction site. For smaller projects and areas that have limited space but still need access control, VIS have a range of external, internal and half-height turnstile products available.

Our user-friendly cloud software is ideal for multi-site operations and is designed with a built-in pre-enrolment function to easily register new arrivals onto the system. Once enrolled and verified, users simply clock in and out without the need to touch a device at the turnstile. Fire roll call, time sheets and other contractor CSR reports can be easily obtained via a secure web login with online inductions and delivery scheduling also available.

Full Height Turnstiles

Another great offering that we offer here at VIS Systems is the strong and robust full height turnstiles. This is something that is increasingly necessary to avoid unauthorised access and the likes of theft and costly accidents, so, you can trust us to install innovative construction turnstiles that do more than your average. 

There is no way of getting around these strong turnstile entry systems, so you can rest assured that the only people entering are the ones permitted to do so. For more information on how we can implement our full height turnstile entry systems on your construction site, get in touch with us today. 

Innovation with Considerate Constructors Scheme

We worked closely with Considerate Constructors Scheme to develop and install thermal imaging cameras on the back of the unprecedented situation Coronavirus presented which accurately monitors’ peoples’ health as they enter the site.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will the access control system help my site?

Our system utilizes cutting edge biometric technology as part of your construction site security. The POD will make sure there is no unauthorized entry to your construction site, alongside allowing you to monitor attendance and credentials.

What is an example of access control?

Access control refers to the practice of restricting entrance to a facility or a specific area within that facility. Examples of Pod access control include using PIN codes, keycards, biometric scanners, or the old fashioned way of having security guards to grant or deny entry. Our system can be deployed rapidly and provides instant facial recognition, video intercom, security roller shutter and contactless biometric readings.

What access control measures are required in the UK?

Access control requirements in the UK may vary depending on the specific industry, building type and regulations. Common access control measures may include compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for handling personal data related to access control, at VIS Systems our systems take care of this so you won't have to worry. Installation of our Pod access control systems is rapid and helps protect your sites. Implementation of appropriate security measures to protect sensitive areas and assets is essential. Regular audits and assessments ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

What type of security can be used to control access to a construction site?

Access control to a construction site can be managed through various security measures such as perimeter fencing with gates that have Pod access control systems; this will help lower the risk of threat or damage to your facility by unauthorised individuals. Security patrols who walk around the facility and check everything is in working order can help find and solve issues before they arise. Surveillance cameras are a must to identify and track everyone who enters the facility but also to see who is trying to enter, that's why our Pod access control system comes with instant facial recognition. Biometric access systems can also be employed to control access to restricted areas within the site so that your staff and visitors can only enter their permitted areas.

How much does it cost to install a turnstile?

We work alongside you to make sure the most cost-effective construction site security system is designed and installed. The solution supplied would typically depend on the workforce size and project KPI’s but we have products suitable for fit-out (£1m+) through to large commercial new build (£100m+).

What are the benefits of turnstile access control?

Not only does turnstile access control ensure only the right people enter your construction site, but it can also allow you to test the body temperature of incoming people to ensue no infections are entering your construction site. Health and safety compliance and a reduction in admin time for site management as well as access to a suite of considerate constructor KPI reports add value.
