Customised (standard) Security Gates

Effective security of items is essential when a library implements a self-loan strategy. The FE Technologies Security Gates have a 3-dimensional read range. This means that tags can be identified in any orientation, providing a very high detection rate, along with the ability to detect multiple items at a time, regardless of how many people are passing through at one time.

The FE Technologies gate alarm is provided in three different ways to provide both a deterrent as well as automated customer service:

  • Visual flashing light
  • Beeper alarm
  • Recorded instruction message
  • Library staff can identify what items have caused an alarm
  • The gates come with bi-directional people counters that record library
    patrons’ movement both in and out the library.

The Security Gates are designed to have inserts placed in the columns so libraries can tailor the look of the gates to their own décor or corporate colours. Libraries can select what artwork and colour scheme they would like to use for the gate column inserts. This artwork can also be changed to advertise events or be changed to reflect new décor in the library.

With a full range of mounting options available, libraries can install the security gates to match architects requirements or to be installed in existing infrastructure. Installation options include: standard mounting on ramp, underground with a capped trench, buried cables and above-ground cables with cover.
