Unobtrusive visitor management system at The Savill Garden in Windsor eases people flow without impinging on the beautiful surroundings
The Savill Garden is an enclosed part of Windsor Great Park in Berkshire. It is a beautiful 35-acre sanctuary of garden and woodland displays, from the blooming hydrangeas of Summer Wood to Autumn Wood's glorious colours.
The park, which has around five million visitors a year, was commissioned by George V and created by Eric Savill in 1932. Today it is a popular attraction for nature lovers, photographers and families.
Specifying a Meesons security solution for The Savill Garden
To control and ensure the safety of the high number of visitors entering and exiting, the park's management team decided they would like to add a layer of physical security to the site.
Indoor and outdoor speed gates were specified. For the outdoor security leading to the garden, EasyGate SPT-Outdoor Speed Gates were chosen. They have an IP 53 rating, which ensures durability in rain, snow, humidity and during changes in temperature.
The client opted for three lanes outdoors and another lane inside the Savill Building, which leads to a ticketed children’s play area. One wide lane allows for wheelchair and pram access.
The outdoor speed gates were specified with specialist integrations for a bespoke finish. The all-in-one combined Easy Scan access control reader allows users to present a barcode scanner on smartphones, tablets or printed tickets to seamlessly grant access to customers.
Rounded top lids soften the overall look. To blend in with the surroundings of garden and indoor area, a stainless steel finish was chosen with the client's branding embedded onto the glass to make the design unique to their business.
The classic look helps keep the security solution discreet, while ensuring only authorised customers can access the grounds, creating a safer environment for staff and visitors.
