Case Study: Swedish Prison Door Locks
The Challenge: Prison locks with traceability management
The local prisons in Sweden hold many incarcerated subjects, who are the most dangerous group of people in society; some suicides, escapes, murders, prison riots, disturbances, and other incidents often occur in prisons, so the security management of prisons is also more difficult compared to other institutions. Due to its special nature, the face of the occasional escape, the requirements of the door lock is relatively strict compared to other industries, a card or a password to unlock the way there is a great security risk. Even in prisons with a high security level, the locks only have the function of opening and closing the door.
Vanma has taken many steps to enhance the level of security management in prisons to ensure their reliability and the stability of the community.
“We needed a locking system to manage the cell doors and heavy control room doors in the prison, and to record and track the unlockers and unlocking times through the management system. Due to the special nature of prisons, each door needs to be opened with care and we want to ensure that each lock opening is traceable.” Prison administrators presented their needs. They wanted to know who unlocked the prison doors and which room door was unlocked at what time. They were looking for a lockout product with management capabilities that would enable high security.
The solution from Vanma
