Smart access solutions from SALTO have been installed to enhance security for student accommodation sites at the University of Lincoln, UK.

In doing so, the university has further demonstrated its commitment to ensuring that students likely living away from home for the first time have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Installed by Aspex, SALTO’s smart access solutions are now providing flexible security and building management for St Mark’s Accommodation, Viking House and Cygnet Wharf.

Reliable, effective security should be a fundamental requirement for any campus housing project.

Aspex – a SALTO Platinum Inspired Business Partner – is proud to have supplied and installed the latter’s hard-wired smart access control solution internally and externally.

According to the companies, the new system is installed with all doors secured by a mix of SALTO XS4 original and XS4 One handle sets, Neo electronic cylinders and wall readers.

This solution has been paired with audio intercoms, DDA record automatic doors and an external car-parking gate across the university’s accommodation sites.

“Ultimate freedom of choice”

Stacey Metcalfe, National Channel Partner Manager, SALTO commented: “SALTO are world leaders in advanced wire free and wireless access control solutions for the education sector.

“We have vast experience of working with universities and student accommodation providers so this Aspex project with the University of Lincoln has been a great order for us.

“For most large construction projects but especially student accommodation, security needs to be robust and effective but unobtrusive.

“Choosing to go with a smart access solution enables building operators to balance security with accessibility and advanced technology with affordability.

“Our smart access control platform is designed to give end users ultimate freedom of choice regarding system layout, type and number of access points as well as level of security.

“And with no costs from lock replacement due to lost keys thanks to the ability to cancel lost or stolen access cards immediately and remotely, it also saves valuable time and resources for building managers.”
