The French Health Products Safety Agency (Afssaps) was created by the law of 1 July 1998, passed to strengthen existing monitoring and health safety systems, in order to provide an improved response to the increasing diversity and interaction of health safety issues relating to healthcare products.
The pleyel site, located in Saint Denis, group a huge number of AFSSAPS collaborators. They saw the need of installinga secure and flexible access system with the possibility of adding different security levels. This project group 435 wooden doors and 225 glass doors.
Mr. Marc Tixeire AFSSAPS Security Manager told us that: “We wanted to secure around 700 offices doors with a systems which could adapt to our organization needs”. We host a lot of collaborators. They access rights are constantly changing. The aim was to secure all the offices which had old and classic mechanical locks. During our refurbishment, we were faced to another problem. How can we secure glass door offices? We needed to find out a one and unique access control solution for wooden doors and glass doors too. We decide for Salto System Access Control because Salto System offers a powerful and flexible electronic access control system which can be adapted on the fly and dynamically depending on the structures needs due to constants moves.
The Salto Systems access control version is interesting because it suits to our specifications and can be used using contact less Mifare carriers. Furthermore, Salto concept allows an automatic door locking assuring the security. Salto Systems brings us a flexibility in the security and management, and an incredible autonomy for the management of Mifare carriers with the Salto SAM kit. More over the Salto Virtual Net updater Hotspot, at the beginning was perceived= as a constraint by our collaborators. Now it’s a reflex action as it allows an automatic update of the user access profile, and an efficient lost card management system.
