201 Bishopsgate installs Automatic Systems Security Lanes

25 Feb 2019



The Broadgate Tower is an iconic building which helps to define the London skyline and it is one of London’s tallest structures. 201 Bishopsgate has a curved design which sweeps around, contrasting and complementing the two buildings, both of which are structurally knitted together. For the 30,000 workers and visitors which come to the area it feels like a complete neighbourhood where office life and social life are equally catered for. There are over 60 shops, bars and restaurants, 4 fitness and health clubs and 17 office buildings.



The 201 Bishopsgate building is a multi-tenanted, prestigious building where their existing security system hindered the free flow of tenants and visitors.

Who was involved
Broadgate Estates tasked their Security Integrator for 201 Bishopsgate (WOT Fire and Security) with finding a solution to their current security requirements within their reception area. Having worked on a number of successful projects together WOT fire and Security and Automatic Systems provided the best solution possible to both the building owner and the current tenants.


Working together, WOT Fire and Security and Automatic Systems superseded the existing entrance control lanes with two banks of Automatic Systems SlimLane. Using wide (PRM) lanes in place of motorised pass gates gave a significantly increased flow rate to the building, accepting more users through the security lanes than previously. With building efficiency and security important objectives for the building owners, the entrance SlimLanes had Lift Destination Control integrated allowing the Security and Building Management systems to control the efficiency of the lifts and limiting access of users to unauthorised floors.

"From removal of the existing security systems the project including integration with lift and security integrators was completed within the client’s time frame of two weeks. This is another example of a successful project working alongside WOT Fire and Security" Ben Fryer, Sales Manager

Automatic Systems helps secure Next Plc’s Head Office Site


Next Plc’s head office required a security upgrade to all their buildings on their site in Enderby, Leicestershire.

Automatic Systems had previously worked at their site on their Next Directory building. The call centre operates a 24/7 opening policy and they wanted to secure the building out of hours, eliminating the need to staff it with security out of hours.

Due to the success of this project Automatic Systems were the preferred suppliers to carry out works to the rest of the buildings and entrances on site.
