Detex: Dependable Hardware for Restricted Areas — Booth 100

Detex puts dependable panic hardware in restricted secure areas—at building entrances, manufacturing facilities, office entrances, and any other area where unauthorized entry must be controlled, and authorized entry must be easy, quick and reliable.

If your operation has certain entry doors where access must be limited to one identified entrant at a time, you want to be sure that no one is able to slip through undetected, behind an employee or vendor, during or after hours. Your restricted access system may be giving tailgaters an “enter free” pass. These unauthorized people can enter behind employees or members and cause problems ranging from loss of revenue to serious security issues.

You may also need to protect departments inside your facility. Member-only fitness centers, corporate offices or record rooms must be off limits to those who have no business there, and this hardware prevents unauthorized tailgate entry. The Tailgate Detection System is compatible with most access control technologies, is easy to retrofit, and has an integrated door prop alarm for extra security.

Any or all these components can be combined as a Restricted Access System that meets specific enhanced levels of security in the most sensitive areas of your facility:

  • Advantex Panic Hardware provides delayed egress with latch retraction. Alarm sounds during 15-second delay to alert staff to unauthorized entry before door opens.
  • Access Control permits authorized immediate entry using keypad or card reader. Includes panic unlocking.
  • Single Person Entry (Tailgate Detection System) uses infrared sensor beams to identify unauthorized entries and notify staff of the violation. You can select the level of intervention you want, whether it’s an audible alarm or a video record of unauthorized entries. It is compatible with most computer-controlled access systems, is cost-efficient and easy to retrofit, and can be used to monitor entry or exit.
  • Door Prop Alarms alert you to a door that has been deliberately propped open to permit unauthorized entry. They are a low-cost, desirable solution to more expensive systems that can be defeated.
