Construction Site Access Control
Access control systems restrict entry to and movement around busy construction sites, cost-effectively and reliably, with access only granted once fingerprint ID and CSCS accreditation’s have been checked and verified.
Our AccessBLOCK incorporates the latest features and enables you to manage entry in and out of site, maintain records of contractors’ attendance and comply with H&S and fire safety legislation. All in one unit! Powerful software automates time and attendance (T&A) recording, providing proof of employees’ working hours as evidence in disputes and, in the event of a fire alarm (whether triggered manually or by an integrated fire alarm system), automatically prints a roll-call for emergency evacuation and muster reporting.
AccessBLOCK includes finger biometrics as standard, with rapid fingerprint matching of users in less than 1 second, meaning speed and reliability are maintained, even in busy periods. Biometric access control systems also remove the risk, inconvenience and frustration surrounding proximity cards or fobs being passed to third parties, lost or left at home.
Should theft from site be a concern, selecting the ‘random search’ facility on the software does just that, enables bag searches without victimisation claims, immediately introducing an effective deterrent and cutting site theft.
Numerous Turnstile Options
AccessBLOCK is a modular access turnstile system which, in its basic format, is a single bi-directional biometric turnstile cabin with a footprint of just 2.5sqm. Additional turnstiles and office units can be bolted together to cater for larger construction sites, with each unit being the same size, making this system one of the most compact and flexible site access control systems in the UK.
If space is even tighter, we offer a ‘fence-line’ turnstile which can easily be integrated into your existing hoarding, site offices or entrances, yet still provide all the management and safety features you need.
If you have a specific site requirement, or want a particular style of cabin, we can build a bespoke access control unit for you – fitted with offices and welfare, plus your choice of single, double, full or half-height bi-directional turnstiles. Further options include customisation or finishing in your corporate colours to provide a professional image to all visitors and contractors.
For added safety and security, all AccessBLOCK units are equipped with anti-slip flooring, internal PIR operated lights and fully lockable solid steel roller doors for out-of-hours security.
All AccessBLOCK units are provided with everything you need to get started, including:
1. An on-site PC loaded with powerful Suprema Bio Star access database software.
2. Two Suprema W2 fingerprint readers (the fastest available) for entry and exit.
3. A separate Suprema Mini enrolment reader enables you to log new users without slowing down access for verified contractors.
4. Gel to aid cleanliness of the fingerprint readers ensures accurate data capture.
5. Installation set-up and onsite training.
Options also include an intercom system to the main site office for granting access to visitors.

Fire Alarm Integration
Comply with onsite fire safety by installing our completely wireless fire alarm system meeting BS5839 and developed to provide construction teams with a simple and reliable means of communicating emergencies. Its range of wireless, battery-operated units includes: fire alert, first aid call points, smoke detectors, audible sirens and visual strobes – all of which can be integrated into an existing fire system and the AccessBLOCK for compliance with legislation.

CCTV Visual Verification
If required, CCTV can be incorporated into your AccessBLOCK to provide an extra level of security. It enables visual identification of users in the event of an incident, suspicion of theft or to confirm the identity of visitors buzzing the intercom prior to granting them access via the remote entry switch in the site office. CCTV systems can easily be extended to cover the whole construction site, with remote access for monitoring by site management. Find out more about construction site monitored CCTV solutions.
