Door control network has break glass to exit in an emergency
Turkeys were rescued from a roasting – just in time for Christmas. The festive birds had this week been caught up in a fire which had begun in their barn home. About 100 gobblers were saved from the fire in the Forest of Dean. Firefighters also removed some gas cylinders from the barn which contained 50 tonnes of hay. The blaze is believed to have been caused by an electrical fault in the outhouse and was extinguished within three hours.
A Tensor security and attendance recording system can be fully equipped with fire roll call technology. For example, the T3510 is the ultimate Smart Card Access Control system which, when linked, can control up to 128 doors from one PC. It contains a Fire Roll Call from fire panel input. In a typical four-door access control arrangement a Smart Card is used to gain entry and a push button to exit. The break glass unlocks the door, from the inside, in an emergency.
