Delta012Delta Security has extended its 18-year partnership with the Stoke Newington-based Sir Thomas Abney Primary School, to deliver a wireless-based ‘ring of steel’ to protect pupils, visitors and staff.

Two new systems have been installed: a Salto wireless electronic locking system that requires a keycard ID pass that automatically synchronises with the locks to allow or restrict access; and EntrySign, a touch-screen interface with the ability to pre-register guests, increasing the accuracy of knowing who is on site at any given time.

Coral Wasylenczuk, School Business Manager at Sir Thomas Abney, says that the latter integrates the entire existing security infrastructure onto a central platform: “Both our legacy technology and the new systems are now fully integrated to give us a complete system overview,” she explains. “It means that it is not only more efficient, but also more accurate in accounting for everyone on-site in case of an emergency. Simply put, we now have an electronic ‘ring of steel’ around the school and feel much more secure.”
