JD Gyms is a state of the art award winning facility playing host to
a mix of the industry’s leading fitness equipment and classes. With
over £1.5 million invested it boasts cutting edge fitness at affordable

JD Gyms was looking for a security solution at each of their
club locations to be used by staff and gym members to prevent
unauthorised personnel entering while the reception areas were not

They had originally installed tripods and gates at a couple of their
locations but wanted something more aesthetically pleasing with
increased security.

Tender Process
JD Gyms approached a number of system integrators to quote for the above
works. However due to their desire to use Automatic Systems Firstlane and
because they had a long standing relationship with JD Omega Security Systems,
secured the contract. Omega can provide a bespoke access control installation
using Automatic Systems products, whilst keeping with the overall layout of JD

As JD Gyms were looking for a standardised layout at each of their locations
Automatic Systems proposed one wide and three standard Firstlanes.
Adaption had to be made to the Birmingham site as their layout was a lobby detached from the main entrance so the Firstlane was replaced with Automatic
Systems Slimlane with 1700 high glass to give greater security, whilst still being
aesthetically pleasing to the standard layout.

Future work
The installation was completed with no complications within the time frame
given. With JD Gyms constantly looking to expand their business they will look to continue using Firstlane for the duration.
