dormakaba launch new maximum security airport gate 

Leading provider of security, entrance systems and access solutions, dormakaba has launched a new security gate system, Argus Air. Built to create a more efficient and seamless passenger flow, the new solution encompasses a range of maximum-security sensor barriers with biometric facial recognition technology that supports passenger and staff flow throughout the entire airport. 

With passenger numbers rising, placing more demands on airport security, dormakaba has launched its new range of Argus Air barrier solutions for airports to not only meet this demand, but also provide an improved airport experience through smooth passenger flow and enhanced comfort. 

The Argus Air sensor barriers offer controlled access to secure areas with biometric recognition data that safely links individuals to their boarding pass or ID document and prevents the use of fraudulent or swapped documents. This impressive technology is housed in elegantly designed, slim units to allow for flexible integration within the airport environment.

Compliant with BS EN 16005, the Argus Air sensor barrier can be applied throughout the whole of the airport for a self-controlled passenger journey. Security, lounge and boarding areas can all be served by Argus Air custom solutions with unique functionality for each area, such as Argus Air boarding systems which detect boarding zone and priority customers through their boarding pass. 

Mark Gore, Business Development Manager for the Travel Sector at dormakaba says, “With the increase in travel projected to reach 53 million flights by 2040, it is essential that we take steps to improve the airport environment to not only provide a robust security system but also improve the overall passenger experience. Our new Argus Air sensor barriers create a seamless travel experience that can be implemented across the whole airport to help to combat the challenges faced by an increase in airline travel. By developing the new solution as a modular system to be used across every stage of the passenger journey from arrival through to boarding, we are able to offer bespoke service to suit each airport.”
