National Gym Chain Combat PIN Sharing with Biometrics and Net2 Access Control
Rush Fitness are a modern gym that offers 24/7 access to their members, in a variety of locations across the UK. Providing an abundance of state of the art equipment, dedicated teams of fitness professionals, and a wide range of exercise classes, Rush Fitness are dedicated to giving their members the best fitness experience possible.
As a 24 hour-a-day facility, it is important that gym members are able to access the site at all hours – however this makes it more difficult for the management to monitor exactly who is using the gym.
Rush Fitness required an updated security solution that could monitor access to the site, and ensure that only official members were granted entry. Vistec Systems, based in West Sussex, recommended Paxton’s Net2 access control system, integrated with ievo ultimate biometric readers, to combat PIN sharing issues between members and non-members. Net2 is a flexible and user friendly networked access control system that allows users to manage systems all from one central platform, making administration simple and straightforward.
To allow members to enroll and manage their memberships themselves, Rush Fitness requested that Vistec install biometric enrollment kiosks to compliment the new Net2 system.
Mike wanted a security system to control access to the main gates and other core buildings. He called in Richard McCredie from Midlands Electrical Fire and Security Ltd who specified Net2, Paxton’s electronic access control system.
Richard said: “Michelin wanted to secure their main gates and areas they didn’t want the public to gain access to. This included their factory, Michelin training school, main IT room and private offices. Once Net2 was installed and they saw how simple it was to use, the decision was made to extend the system to more doors around the site.””
