Returning to the workplace: How access control plays a vital role in a safe and secure return strategy

Paxton donates products to Children in Need

UK supplier of access control products Paxton has donated products to the DIY SOS TV programme screened as part of Children in Need.

The project is a purpose-built support centre, with short-term accommodation for young people living within and leaving social care.

Roots Foundation offers support to children and young people.

As part of the project, Paxton donated a range of products. These include Net2, the company’s main networked access control solution, Net2 Entry, an IP-based door entry system, and Net2 PaxLock, a door handle containing wireless access control technology.

Paxton also donated readers and keypads to control access to the new building. Eight doors were secured in the installation by Secured Alarm Systems, a Swansea firm that provides electronic security.

According to Richard Green, sales engineer at Secured Alarm Systems, the project was advertised locally. After looking into the work that The Roots Foundation offers to people within care, Secured Alarm Systems wanted to offer its services to support the project.

Green said: “We recommended installing Paxton because we felt it could offer them greater convenience by installing Net2 Entry, on the main gate, with the added flexibility of integrating with the rest of the Net2 system across the whole building.”

This has meant that The Roots Foundation can provide residents with keyfobs, allowing them the independence to access the areas they have permissions for.

If you missed the DIY SOS episode featuring Paxton when it aired on 15 November, you can still catch it on the BBC iPlayer.
