Centaman Entrance Control provides secure access to new Tyro Payments’ new facility


Access to Tyro Payments new office in Sydney’s CBD has been secured in style with 3 lanes of Centurion EasyGate HG speedgates from Centaman Entrance Control two floors.

Tyro Payments is Australia’s only independent and fastest growing EFTPOS provider who serve 12,000+ customers, process over $6.5 billion annually in card transactions Part of the requirement for the building refurbishment was for an integrated access control system, lift destination control system and turnstile solution to limit access to the building to only authorised occupants and visitors.

The final solution design was based Centurion EasyGate HG speedgates, integrated with the base buildings access control system, located on each floor in front of eth elevators. This means that when staff enter their floor they scan their card at the turnstile to gain access to the facility
Centurion EasyGate HG uses glass barriers of up to 1800mm in height, in conjunction with state-of-the-art optical technology to provide a high throughput security gate.

The bi-directional glass barriers are designed to work in a ‘normally closed’ mode and open after a valid card has been presented to allow the authorised user to pass. The barriers are designed to close quickly behind the authorised person to deter tailgaters whilst the IR sensors monitor the lane to detect unauthorised entry and ensure the safety of users. The ‘swing barrier’ design of the EasyGate HG allows the same slim pedestal to be used for both standard width and wheelchair width lanes alike making it ideal for installation in areas with space constraints.

“EasyGate HG’s narrow foot print made it an ideal solution for installing on each floor of Tyros new facility. As we were installing the speedgates in front of the elevators on each floor we wanted a solution that would take up as little space as possible whilst still providing DDA complaint lanes with fast enough throughput rate to manage the numbers of people the elevators could deliver to each floor.” said Michael Bystram, Entrance Control Manager at Centaman.
