Red Hawk Using IQ To Double Safety Entrance® Life Span

Orange County,  California – Doug Bentley of Red Hawk Fire & Security had a vision and understood the value of extending the useful life and increased functionality of the Safety Entrances® they service for their clients. Doug worked with Isotec’s Tim Carrillo tcarrillo@isotecinc.com on a plan for multiple interlocking door electronic upgrades throughout Red Hawk’s California market. Red Hawk’s customers required a proven standardized upgrade configuration that was scalable, rapidly installed, reliable and easily serviced, enter IQ.

IQ’s advanced technologies increase the functionality and product life of existing Isotec Safety Entrances® with enhanced features and capabilities that insure 100% objective safety & security compliance.

IQ can extend the life of an Isotec Safety Entrance® and even those of Novacomm’s Mark III & IV vestibules. Novacomm failed as a company in 2011, so Isotec also engineered IQ to replace the outdated electronics found in their Mark III & IV vestibules.

How to Protect the Branch of the Future

How to Protect the Branch of the Future

Bank & Credit Union “Branches of the Future” have smaller footprints. They typically have occupancy ratings of 50 people or less, are trending, and prefer single lane Safety Entrances® over multi-lane. 

A single lane Safety Entrance® may be the perfect fit for bank and credit union branches with smaller footprints. Along with requiring less space, Isotec’s single lane entrances are more economical.
Isotec uses a special, DHS Certified Ceia column metal detector, which is specifically configured and designed for our Safety Entrances®. The column metal detector provides and open and spacious environment for bank and credit union customers. The metal detector is certified to be safe and effective by the Department of Homeland Security. 
Isotec’s single lane Safety Entrances® are bi-directional and proven effective in detecting guns being brought into a building. Whether coming or going, the entrances are configured to meet any branch’s safety & security needs.
Isotec sales engineers design and configure single lane Safety Entrance® to protect bank and credit union employees and patrons. We are the only manufacturer in the country that uses Ceia’s column metal detectors with our interlocking door systems. Did we mention we’re SAFETY Act approved?

Nick Laskovski is Making Things Happen

Nick Laskovski is Making Things Happen

Nine months ago Diebold’s Nick Laskovski made his way to our Westminster HQ to learn about Safety Entrances®. So far this year, Nick leads all of Diebold in sales of our Safety Entrances®. Diebold has about 16,000 employees. Sounds like Rookie of Year accolades are in order.

We understand the folks at Diebold may be surprised by Nick’s “out of the blocks” success, but not us. We know a little something about outlier like Nick, because we’ve been labeled with the moniker a few times. They’re a myth. Nick earned his success through action. He took the initiative and invested his time to learn our product. He then listened to his client’s needs, their concerns and then delivered on his promises. A tried & true formula for sustainable success.

Nick’s successes aren’t magic. He makes things happen through well planned action. We view Nick as an example of positive axioms such as luck favoring the prepared, or the smarter you work the luckier you get. We can all learn from sales professionals like Nick. That’s why we’re touting his success. Heck of a job by someone we didn’t know a year ago.

This is a photo of Nicks latest order going through Factory Acceptance Testing. His client required two Synergy Touchscreen operator consoles for their two lane Safety Entrance®, which allows command & control from multiple points. You can see them wired up on the right.

Nick’s Safety Entrance® will be shipped out after it’s approved for deployment.

Isotec’s “Shootem Up” Reveals the Dangers of Low Spall Glass

Isotec’s “Shootem Up” Reveals the Dangers of Low Spall Glass

Idaho Springs, CO

We learned and witnessed number of things during our 8th annual “Shootem Up”. With all that what we learned, the unanimous take away was not to consider “low spall”  types of glass  as a substitute for UL® listed glass when ballistic protection is required. Think in terms of razor sharp shards of glass cutting into your employees or patrons, as was the case with our “witness” mannequin Polly Purebread.

“Low spall glass” is a clever marketing term, somewhat like the terms “acceptable toxicity levels”, or “may have negative side effects”.   Low spall glass is an adequate blunt force attack resistant glass (think hammer), not a ballistic glass. Low spall glass does have ballistic resistant properties. Those properties include shards of glass that could result in blindness. Take look at Polly. Low spall glass shatters by the impact of a bullet. Polly’s facial and head wounds show that glass shards from low spall glass can cause facial, head and neck wounds to the very people you’re trying to protect. That’s not protection, that’s  a role of the dice with fingers crossed.

We are where we are by choice. Before considering low spall glass for ballistic protection ask yourself; how many shards of glass does it take to blind a person? Put another way, would you stand behind low spall glass being fired on? Exactly.

We’re not sure how low spall glass became an acceptable substitute for UL Listed glass. Was it costs? That seems a dear price to pay if you ask us. Not on your watch, and hopefully not on yours.
