AccessShield - Biometric and Proximity

A solution for every site:

Our access control is as modular as your situation or site requirements.  We provide a full hardware and software solution including turnstiles, cabins, barriers and information display screen.


And for total peace of mind, all Herongrange installations are backed up by nationwide engineer coverage, allowing you to leave your access control and security within our firm control.  It’s your choice, and we make it happen.


Access Control can be just about who can access site and when, however with Herongrange’s Access Control system you also have a construction developed, H&S reporting and Human Resource Tracking system.  This allows you to choose!!

Using Herongrange’s Access Control system on your site to enforce worker competence, Time & Attendance and security couldn’t be easier and quicker, especially when using CSCS Cards.


WebPortal: Get your sub contractors to pre-enter most of their employee data including certifications saving you time and data entry.  Then, during induction, you only need to validate what they have entered and if you’re happy just click-n-go to grant access to your site.


PC On Site: Guaranteed fast reliable full featured access to your data even if the broadband or 3G link is down.  Data stored locally on site and within our Data Centre for central off-site backup and restore incase of disaster recovery.


Integration: Linking sites to each other and to a WebPortal allows visibility and management of employee data, certifications and sub contractor data entry.


Biometrics: Choose between biometric (Hand, eye, finger, face) or non-biometric (Proximity Card, key-fob) authentication methods.


Certification Tracking: Let the system keep you informed when there is a certification issue.  Auto prevent access to personnel when a cert expires to ensure full compliance.  Message screen reminders to proactively alert staff themselves when a cert needs renewal.


Message screen: Keeping your workforce informed of certs, toolbox talks, and site stats.  Cycle through informational messages, “Safe man days/hours”, CO², BREEAM etc.  Target reminders and messages to relevant staff.

Read CSCS Cards directly into Access Control :

Our access control software is now compatible with CSCS SmartCards.  Enrolling a new user on your access control system is as easy as swiping their CSCS card using a contactless desktop reader.


The system then captures the details held on the card and keeps a copy on the system.  The turnstile, door or barrier then allows access until the CSCS expires, having given the user a reminder 60 days beforehand to renew their CSCS qualification.

You can also swipe their renewed card to update or query the details you have on file.


We offer stand-alone, Cloud-based and multi-site framework solutions to match the size of your deployment and site infrastructure.


Since our software is written in-house, it allows us complete flexibility to meet your site specific needs, business rules and KPIs.
