ASSA CLIQ provides security boost for Magnox South and a cost saving of £60K

ASSA CLIQ has provided a further security enhancement boost for Magnox South Ltd, a leading management and operations contractor currently decommissioning the Berkeley Site in Gloucestershire on behalf of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

When the existing integrated access control system needed extending to other buildings, not only was the capital investment required high, so too was the disruption and cost of the installation. Magnox South therefore welcomed the simplicity and versatility of the ASSA CLIQ master key system.

“ASSA CLIQ is tremendously impressive”, Site Security Manager at the Berkeley Site, Jeremy Pallister, explains. “Combining the intelligence of an electronic access system, ASSA CLIQ operates effectively alongside our main access control system to provide the site with maximum security and convenience. It also offers the flexibility to grow as we require – hence, padlocks and other doors were added to the system. What’s more to further strengthen security, ASSA CLIQ enables us to collect and check audit trails.”

Jeremy added: “What is even more impressive is that by installing ASSA CLIQ, the cost savings at the Berkeley Site alone were in the region of £60k, and this even took into account the initial purchase of the system.”

Commenting on the Magnox specification, Electric Locking Product Manager at ASSA ABLOY Door Solutions, Lorna Hylton said: “The Berkeley Site illustrates perfectly the benefits that ASSA CLIQ can bring to retrofit situations when an upgrade of security is required, but where the investment will not stretch to a traditional electronic access system. In the current economic climate, ASSA CLIQ provides an unrivalled cost-effective access control solution.”
