The Novartis building in the Waterfall City Estate is truly magnificent and was completed about 5 months ago. The 8 300m² building is truly an eye opener and Turnstar was tasked with providing an access control solution. The Turnstar Speedgate Express was chosen as it provides a high pedestrian throughput and combined with really great looks.
In total, 4 Speedgate lanes were installed at the main office reception. Two 900mm wide ADA lanes for special needs and another two 550mm wide lanes for access to the lift lobby. The glass wings are also fitted with RGB LED lighting to increase visibility and to provide and truly modern and cutting edge look. During the design stage, Turnstar was also tasked with incorporating the J-series (Sagem) readers onto the stainless steel cabinets. Turnstar designed and manufactured custom mounting brackets in order for the J-series mounting to look professional and to be at the correct and comfortable angle for pedestrians to use the fingerprint reader.
