Allegion deploys hand geometry readers at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park


Allegion recently completed a biometric access control deployment at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.

This is the same place that the 2012 Olympic Games took place, and this most recent deployment is part of a nearly $500 million project to convert the park following the games.

Human Recognition Systems was initially appointed to deploy secure access control and workforce management at the site, and the company reportedly selected Allegion as a partner to deliver some of these technologies. In particular, the company provided its Schlage HandPunch hand geometry readers at turnstiles throughout the park.

“Having worked together on a biometric access control and workforce management system for the construction of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in the build-up to the 2012 London Olympic Games, HRS and Allegion already had a successful track record at this iconic site,” Paul Taylor, UK Sales Leader at Allegion said. “For this next major construction scheme, HRS developed and installed a system which once again used Allegion’s tried-and-tested Schlage HandPunch.”

Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, BAM Nutall, the primary contractor responsible for the Olympic Park deployed Human Recognition Systems’ MSite biometric authentication system as a form of workforce management, and credential and access control at the venue late last year.
