Recent research has revealed that buildings in the commercial sector are responsible for producing up to 10 per cent of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions. The government has stepped in, setting new carbon emissions targets and marking out new rules requiring commercial landlords to present energy certificates of a minimum ‘E’ rating from 2018.

If you own commercial premises and are looking to boost energy efficiency, your thoughts at first will usually turn to more traditional methods, such as insulation, double or triple glazing and the installation of an energy efficient heating system or even solar panels. But did you know there’s another way to achieve greater energy efficiency?

Energy Efficient Security with no Compromise

If you thought security and energy efficiency didn’t have a connection, think again. If you have an electronic access control and locking system then there are new ways of making it energy efficient, without compromising on quality.

If you thought security and energy efficiency didn’t have a connection, think again. If you have an electronic access control and locking system then there are new ways of making it energy efficient, without compromising on quality.

Recently, lock expert and leading manufacturer Abloy have developed a new range of low energy consumption electric locks, and no doubt other manufacturers will follow suit in the near future.

The innovative range has been designed with the option of running off an existing access control power supply. It is said to consume 53 times less energy than a standard magnetic operating electric lock, so is set to bring serious savings and boost up that all important energy efficiency rating whilst maintaining high levels of security.

Tap into an exciting new technology

Low energy electric locks are a fairly new innovation and only just coming onto the market, so you won’t find too much information on them just yet. But if they’re something that sounds interesting to you, why not get in touch with us here at Barry Bros Security to find out more, and be one of the first to tap into this pioneering new technology?

If you’re yet to discover the many benefits of electronic locking systems, such as instant removal of access as soon as a security breach is detected, and the ability to integrate them into CCTV, intruder and fire alarm systems for an additional safety net, you can learn more here, or contact us for expert advice and a security audit to learn how you could gain advantage in your security strategy.
