High Chelmer Shopping Centre choose SALTO security solution

As in other industries, retailers have become increasingly concerned with security. To counter the threat of losses through employee theft and professional shoplifters they need to have robust, effective protection in place to protect their property.

One retailer that did just that is High Chelmer Shopping Centre, located in Chelmsford, United Kingdom. The town's largest shopping centre, High Chelmer determined its current security arrangements were in need of modernisation. To replace their existing locks a modern integrated access control solution was required enabling the centre to centrally manage access rights in pre-arranged areas, creating a more efficient and secure retail environment.

The Solution
Following an evaluation of the centre and access traffic within the areas to be controlled, SALTO partner Leigh Visual recommended the SALTO XS4 system as the perfect solution. The system can be easily retro-fitted to almost any existing door, enabling them to be turned into fully featured access control doors without compromising comfort, convenience, security or control. It also provides the many advantages of the SALTO Virtual Network (SVN), enabling access profiles to be changed rapidly and locks and key cards to be updated, restricted or deleted remotely, adding real value to the access management of the shopping centre.

The Benefits
Mick McDonagh, Centre Manager at High Chelmer Shopping Centre, says: “Our mission is to maintain our position as the retail heart of the town centre. To achieve this we continually need to adapt to changing regional, national and indeed global retail trends. As part of this change we now have a cost-effective and user-friendly security solution that gives me more control over the movement of my staff. It is flexible and expandable to meet our future needs, and the fact that it was easy to install and no hard wiring was required was also a real benefit.”
