Barbecan Security Door System Makes Sure You Never Get Stuck [Video]
Question asked by Satya Swaroop Dash in #Hacking and Security on Jan 5, 2013
Most institutions use turnstiles for secure entry, but the trouble with using turnstiles is that they make the queues slow. Someone can easily jump over the device and bypass the entire security procedure. Keeping these lapses in mind Barbecan Security Systems has come up with Barbecan LRD Portal. This portal consists of a corridor with two centrally pivoted doors made out of Kevlar or polycarbonate panels mounted on slides. When a person approaches the system the first door closes and slides forward and as soon as he/she walks forward the back door closes and simultaneously the front door opens allowing the person to go ahead. For a better understanding of the system have a look at animation below:

This simultaneous opening and closing makes sure that no one jumps the queue. The system has been fitted with visual, sonic, IR, RF, or floor pressure sensors that measure the walking pace of pedestrians and open or close the doors depending on how fast or slow a person is walking. As an additional security feature the portal is equipped with weapon-detecting sensors. If these sensors are activated the portal can either reverse the door pushing the criminal out of the building or seal both ends and trap the miscreant until proper authorities arrive. In case of emergencies such as fire the doors open themselves completely allowing people to escape the premises as fast as possible. A similar security system has also been designed for baggage scrutiny.
