AB Glass (Doors & Windows) Ltd

One of the UK’s leading architectural glass and glazing suppliers

AB Glass is an ADSA approved installer, working for the domestic and commercial sectors. We offer a full technical sale, installation and follow up service for all our clients.

AB Access specialises in the design, installation and maintenance of access control, CCTV, door entry/intercom, automated gates/barriers, PA and intruder alarm systems. The nature of the company’s activities places emphasis upon the experience and professionalism of its personnel, and the quality and reliability of its products and services. Our team of engineers are conversant with all aspects of system construction and can deliver a single or multi-discipline package on-time and on budget.

The access systems coupled together with the already established and reliable door solutions offers you a complete one stop solution for access control and doors systems. These systems can be installed in 99.9% of buildings and can be integrated with existing access systems, or we can supply a brand new system solution designed for you.

What is Access Control?

Access control enables you to restrict or allow who has access to your premises or building. An access control unit is located outside of the restricted area near to the access point and is operated via a numerical keypad, card/fob reader or using the latest biometric finger print technology. A combination of two or three security access solutions is also available.

At AB Access we can offer a simple ‘stand-alone’ single door access system, ranging to a fully integrated networked system that controls many areas that require personnel restriction. We pride ourselves in using the latest technology and now can provide an access control solution that is integrated into one of our intruder alarm panels, packaging the system as one, and therefore cutting outlay costs to the end user. This coupled with the doors offers a unique and unrivalled service, at the right cost.

Access control is generally seen as the second layer in security over the simple ‘Mechanical Key’ method and can enable the security of a property to be controlled by one central system. If code numbers are forgotten, fobs/cards lost or stolen or a staff member leaves, they can be easily deleted and replaced with new. Erasing the old security token with a click of a button.

As an employer, apart from the obvious security benefits protecting your staff and property, access control is also far more superior over the simple ‘Mechanical Key’ method as it can provide a fully recorded audit trail. This can enable you to monitor who is entering a protected or restricted area at any given time. On certain systems, if required, staff attendance levels and time keeping records can be easily viewed on software provided. We can install this system and train the applicable staff members on how to use the applicable system and software.

These software systems can be used in schools, hospitals, hotels, as well as several other establishments – you name it, and the connectivity and integration are available. Cloud-based solutions enable the applicable staff members to log-in remotely off-site to enrol onto the system. This allows designated contractors and maintenance staff to gain access to sites away from the main headquarters. This can be invaluable for important staff or clients when faced with late night emergency lock outs, eliminating the costs for locksmith call outs and maintenance time.

Your staff must have a safe and secure workplace to perform to their best potential. Your property must be protected if your business is to grow and expand. At AB Access, we can design these systems to compliment your staff and clients’ security while on site.

Your business has unique security needs, and so we always complete a site survey and risk assessment (where automatics are applicable) before making our recommendations. You can be confident that our solution will always satisfy the requirements of the site and give you true peace of mind.

At AB Access we only work with certified and registered UK access control manufacturers. Our suppliers are UK based. These systems have been tested in the UK market. AB Access will not compromise on quality. This compliments our UK manufactured doors and applicable products.
