Stanley Security Solutions has completed the installation of
an integrated electronic entry system for logistics company Mini
Clipper at its new premises in Bedfordshire.
Specialising in the delivery of palletised freight, Mini Clipper employs almost 100
people and operates a substantial fleet of vehicles. As part of an expansion
programme, the company recently moved to a new, larger site providing the added
opportunity to improve security and allow for a more effective means of monitoring
and controlling staff and visitor movements.
A long standing customer of Stanley, Mini Clipper has employed its Time & Attendance
solutions for over 15 years. An excellent working relationship has developed over
that period, encouraging Mini Clipper to turn to Stanley for its security
requirements at the new site, most notably a sophisticated site wide access control
system capable of handling both pedestrians and vehicles.
Stanley was able to provide invaluable advice on developing the site from a vehicle
entry point of view right from the outset, helping Mini Clipper to efficiently plan
the site’s redevelopment.
Stanley has now installed its NT500 access control system integrated with the
security gates and video door entry system site wide, as well as connecting to a remote location. The
solution has provided Mini Clipper with the ability to control and monitor access to
the site with a one fob / badge solution without restricting the flow of vehicles or
The NT500 Access and Alarm Server, manufactured by Stanley, is an expandable
controller that provides secure, high speed access. Security is in part attributed
to the Secure Socket Communications and a built-in Firewall for ‘data centre grade’
protection. System downtime is negated through the use of Distributed Intelligent
Controllers so that even if the main communication lines are lost, the on-site
security is maintained at all times.
In addition to the access control, Stanley has also upgraded Mini Clipper’s Time and Attendance solutions system to its latest Astrow system. Astrow is used by
Mini Clipper for managing payroll costs, allowing employees to clock remotely via a
pc and request holidays, and helping the management team monitor operational costs.
Peter Masters, Managing Director of Mini Clipper, is pleased with the entry system
solution at the new site: “We wanted access control throughout the new site and
liked the convenience of having it directly linked to the electronic pay role, which
Stanley has provided us for years. The access control is used across a large site
and has proved to be robust. It keeps the unwanted out and protects the freight
within, which our customers like very much.”
