Sabre’s base in Uruguay is currently home to over 800 staff. Gunnebo was invited to work with Abelenda Hermanos as a security system supplier to design and install a comprehensive solution, created to optimise access control whilst maintaining a seamless flow of people.

Natalie Sarmiento, Sabre Security & Safety Manager said: “Our vision is always to connect people with travel experiences that matter most.  And in doing so, our team are the most important part of our business to think differently and make this happen for our customers.  We needed to ensure their security on-site in our remodelled office in Uruguay, with the highest standards.

“By proactively working with Gunnebo Entrance Control we were able to design a system that easily blended with its surroundings, while coexisting with the welcoming environment we wanted to create for our employees and our guests.  This is something that flows throughout our offices and has been received well by all on site.”

“Highest level of safety”

Gunnebo Entrance Control worked with Sabre to create a bespoke entrance control solution, incorporating its latest design SpeedStile FP 1200 EV speed gates, finished in full stainless steel grade 304, to operate 6 lanes in place.

The entrance control is aims to significantly enhance Sabre’s security measures, by reducing the risk of unauthorised access without compromising on speed or aesthetic design, Gunnebo believes.

Omar Ferrero, Director at Abelenda Hermanos said: “It was an absolute pleasure to work with Sabre and install entrance control for the benefit of its staff and guests.  The real benefit of working with the Gunnebo SpeedStile system is the focus on ease of installation, together with its use of advanced technology to balance speed, security and design.  The finish is stylish and maintains the highest level of safety for all who work and visit the new facilities.”

The new system is said to have high throughput capability, helping to ensure efficient traffic management.

Equipped with ‘intelligent’ sensors, it is designed to provides more accurate and reliable entrance control, preventing tailgating. Additionally, the system’s customisable design options enable integration with the surrounding architecture.

Thomas Axelson, Gunnebo Partner Network Manager – LATAM concluded: “The successful installation of Gunnebo’s entrance control solutions at Sabre’s offices in Uruguay highlights our capability to deliver customised security solutions.  We will work with our clients and installers right from the initial design stage to project completion to deliver a solution that presents the highest level of security whilst maintaining a welcoming feel. We are thrilled with the results and proud to support Sabre as they continue their mission to make travel happen across the globe.”
