Public Transport

Security solutions for public transport hubs

The large volumes of passengers transiting through public transport hubs, whether they are train and subway stations or airports, and their high risk nature make these structures complex facilities to manage.

Operational and access control efficiency require intelligent, discreet and effective security and building management solutions.

Access control and master key systems combined with high security cylinders and mechanical or electromechanical locks provide high security and selective access, keeping off-limits and service areas secure. Integrated emergency escape routes installed throughout the building allow the safe exit of large numbers of people in the case of an emergency. 

Main areas where ASSA ABLOY can offer an integrated solution:

Entrance door systems - The main doors of an airport building provide safe, convenient and reliable entrance to large volumes of people that pass through them each and every day. They are also an important representation of the building as a whole.
High-security doors - A sophisticated access control system uses biometric characteristics to check and approve access of authorized personnel. A door’s status - whether open, closed or unlocked - can be conveniently monitored from a centralized location.
Utilities - Airport utilities such as storage tanks, hangars, fences, and power stations need to be kept secure. Often they are exposed to extreme weather conditions or chemicals and require durable solutions that ensure that there will be no unwanted surprises.
General office doors - A high-quality solution ensures that, when necessary, a closed door remains closed. All of a door’s components must fit smoothly together and must operate like new even after thousands of openings.
Emergency and Panic Exits - In a case of an emergency, people have to be able to leave a building fast. An emergency exit must facilitate a smooth evacuation during extraordinary circumstances while protecting a building’s security during all other times.
