Think for a moment of how social changes requires security to be upgraded over time, keeping Residents safe each day. Our AST Teams work with Care providers, Universities, Schools, Business clients as well as many Housing Associations across London. This article will explore how our systems can overcome the challenges of securing public entrances and the people who use them safe.

Aluminium Doors

As commercial-grade aluminium communal doors, the AST Portcullis range is designed to be both vandal-resistant and light-weight.

These doors feature 10.8mm laminated anti-bandit safety glass, with mortised, dual mag-locks to prevent distortion of the door through vandalism.

The transom closer is concealed, and the anti-finger-trap stile prevents the jamming of digits between the door and the frame – a common occurrence with older, outdated communal doors.

Steel Security Doors

Like all of our communal security doors, the AST standard door is designed to be low maintenance, durable, and tamper-proof. It’s also, in our opinion one of the best looking communal safety doors available currently.

With over 17 possible configurations, in terms of door style and side-panel layout, the AST R 2 was made to frustrate vandals.

A secure tamper-proof seal secures the glazing, while the anti-tamper security fixings and the tamper-proof door seal strengthens the security of this communal door.

Automated Doors

Did you know that your existing doors – both the sliding and swinging variety – can be automated? Our AST door automation motors are robust and designed to require minimal maintenance.

Automated doors are especially useful in situations where people might be unable to open a door in the conventional manner, like when carrying groceries or when someone in a wheelchair needs to get access into the building.

We’re able to automate doors to work using remotes, key fobs, infrared sensors, and via a push button.

Automated Gates

To boost your security on sites we supply automated gates which provide a safe and secure solution for residential housing and commercial buildings creating a safer environment.

Automated gates enhance safekeeping and to provide privacy to restrict unwanted guests. We all get unwanted drivers parking onsite when they’re not supposed to, having unwanted callers enter unexpectedly.

With gate automation it keeps out the bad and welcomes the good through caution before entering the site. We also provide the gates to be controlled through door entry and remote transmitters for when residents with vehicles enter the premises.

AST CCTV Systems

Having an eye around every corner, anti-social behaviour can be monitored 24/7.

Keeping people safe by monitoring what keeps our Residents and sites safe by serving as a useful addition to your security to watch behaviour and reduce any issues by recording evidence to be used in court.

We provide a range of CCTV solutions to suit your individual requirements from our covert cameras to vandal resistant dome cameras.

Have more control by authorising access remotely on the digital video recorder and see it live from your PC or Mobile device.

Door Entry Handsets

Before GSM door entry systems, people would have to leave their homes and walk to their building’s entrance in order to open up for a visitor.

Now we have taken our GSM units to the next stage giving you complete access control with wireless intercom systems that allows entrance to the building for calling the resident directly through Mobile, Video Calling App or Landline.

What’s more, our innovative GSM wireless intercom system is designed to notify Residents directly to your mobile device, by viewing a live image directly on multiple devices using the video calling APP giving the option to answer or decline.
