Clarke Instruments Ltd win a large order for custom designed electric releases

We have secured a repeat order for custom designed electric releases for a long standing customer.

The brief from the client was to develop a stronger more reliable product, to match their night mortice dead locks.

We based the design around our 903 release which has proven itself in the field for over 35 years with some devices still in operation. When tested against the client’s old product we also found we had at least three times the holding strength. This more than matched the client’s expectations.

This again demonstrates our ability to produce a bespoke solution that meets all of the security requirements of the client, while keeping within their budgetary constraints.

If you take security seriously, you will be delighted with our products.

Working together with suppliers

Clarke Instruments was contacted by one of its suppliers of speed gates and lanes. They had been asked to supply a number of internal products but their client needed a heavy-duty stainless steel gate for an external application.

We were invited to look at the problem and propose a suitable solution. We decided that our 184 style half height heavy-duty pedestrian gate was right and offered it to our customer.

This comes fitted with a mechanical self-closer and an R842 Mag lock with a holding force in excess of 1200lb.

The power supply is fitted remotely away from the gate, a requirement of the end customer.

The whole process from order to delivery was achieved in around two weeks: Another satisfied customer and proof that collaboration works.

Being an agile manufacturing company we are equally happy to supply standard products or work with you to get the solution that meets your requirements.

Major food preparation supplier chooses Clarke Instruments.

We at Clarke Instruments have been working with a major food preparation company based in the West Country. They decided to re-evaluate their perimeter security.

They were having tail gating problems and with their peak period, Christmas, looming and the consequent heavy reliance on temporary and agency staff they felt a need to do something to improve perimeter security.

After initial discussions and a site survey they decided on the ever popular and rugged 480A-209 double turnstile. This could be used effectively to establish tighter controls on entering and exiting the site. The turnstile which is bi-directional on both walkways in normal operation was ideal, given the volume of people entering and exiting. The Customer also took advantage of the built-in fire alarm relay and auxiliary power supply to power their own bio-metric controls.

As this is one of our most popular products we were able to supply from stock so from order to delivery and installation was complete in under 2 weeks.

Another satisfied customer and a promise to use us in future developments.

If you need standard or bespoke products let us help you with the solution.

Clarke Instruments for the control of access

As a direct result of further enhancements, we have completed an order for four 493A-205 D/B Double Airlock Bi-Directional Turnstiles required by a major construction site services provider. These products have been developed and enhanced over many years as our business relationship with the construction industry has evolved and are fundamental to the control of access on many sites.

These state of the art turnstiles are available in single or double formats and can be supplied with integral tread plates, allowing easy relocation using Hi-ab or crane. They are also available on metal pallets, allowing easy relocation using fork lift trucks.

The product is exceedingly robust and is well suited to the construction industry environment. In consultation with the customer the access control has been developed to include facial recognition and numerical key pads working with activity logging software to provide accurate records of site attendance. The airlock feature makes it impossible for unauthorised people to enter the site. With separate tool box hatches, this turnstile is ideal for the construction industry. The roller shutter option allows the turnstile to be locked off securely when access to the site is not required. In case of fire the turnstile can be put into free wheel to allow rapid evacuation.

This long-term relationship has developed out of mutual trust and respect and we look forward to it continuing for many years to come.

If you need standard or client specific products let us help you provide the solution.

Executive security company turns to Clarke Instruments again

After several years, our customer turned to us for another set of customised electric releases requiring a quality brass finish in all respects for one of their prestigious customers. Every door tells a different story as the brass lead in plates are all made to measure and are therefore of different lengths.

Our 960 range of electric releases is the base design for the customised product. With brass face plates and latch blocks instead of steel, the end result has a quality brass finish, which is aesthetically pleasing: ideal for historic buildings.

The 960, which withstands 7Kn of force, meets our the clients criteria for robustness, reliability and longevity.

Being an agile manufacturing company our technical department was able to work closely with the client based in Oxford to make certain each individual release was designed and matched to the required drawings of the individual doors.

This was then passed to our factory where our highly trained manufacturing division worked out the easiest and most efficient way to complete the order to meet the customer’s specification: Both on time and within budget.

So, if you take security seriously and have a bespoke or standard requirement, we would like to hear from you.
