The importance of reducing the misuse of access control call points

11 Feb 2016

Misuse to Access Control Call Points can cause unwanted disruption to any environment. Protect Access Control Call Points with an STI Protective Call Point Covers to prevent any unwanted use and disruption.

Too often there is confusion when it comes to mistaking the emergency access control call points as a means of exiting through an emergency exit door, when the ‘push to exit’ button should be used instead. As a standard practice the call point and push button are installed side by side, which can lead to mistakenly activating the wrong device.

Inappropriate use of access control call points can also result in unauthorised exits or entries through emergency exit doors, it could encourage unwanted attention and offer a means of people walking in and potentially stealing equipment from your building.

There is an ideal solution when it comes to protecting and monitoring the use of access control call points and push buttons against accidental or malicious use. The STI Euro Stopper® is a clear tough polycarbonate cover specially designed to easily retrofit over an existing device, providing protection within minutes. If malicious activation is likely to be a problem, covers with an optional, localised deterrent alarm can be installed. 

When a level of weather protection from IP24 to IP56 is required, within the range are covers and enclosures which are ideal for use in extreme conditions, indoor or outdoor.


The STI Euro Stopper® is now available with a new feature.  The frame of the product is embedded with a unique substance that glows in the dark. The Glow Guide pigment will release light for up to 8 hours in darkness or dimly lit areas and charges up after only 30 minutes exposure to natural or artificial light. It is essential for guiding you to safety in emergency situations.

The Glow Guide is not the only new feature to the Euro Stopper® – the polycarbonate cover is now supplied in a kit form, allowing the user to assemble the product in the way which best suits their application, with the choice of green or red housing shell, language, mounting option, sounder and breakseal facility.
