Harpenden Town Council Opens New Smart Doors With Amthal

Client: Harpenden Town Council

Amthal has installed a state-of-the-art front door entry system at Harpenden Town Council offices that interfaces with a new phone system, to create a more efficient access process and smart security solution for the benefit of staff and visitors.

Harpenden Town Council, which represents the largest parish in the St Albans District, aims to work closely with the community to promote the area as a place to live, a place to work, a place to invest and a place to visit.

Operating from Harpenden Town Hall, the Council originally sourced Amthal to install a sophisticated internal access control system to ensure the security of all who work and visit the office building.

With the installation of a new cloud based telephone system, the Council once again called on the services of Amthal to recommend a compatible front door intercom system to ensure the efficient running of the office and welcome facilities for visitors.

Says Carl Cheevers, Town Clerk at Harpenden Town Council: “Harpenden Town Hall aims to deliver a ‘one stop shop’ information point for the wealth of services available in our community. With this in mind it is essential our offices present a welcoming environment for all visitors, but this must be created without compromising on high quality protection for all our staff on site.

“Here is where having Amthal, as a local security support has made all the difference. Not only do they understand our working environment, but also are always on call to respond quickly to maintain our existing access control system within the building and offer advice on new solutions such as the new door entry system, that can help us efficiently enhance our service offering to the community.”

David Williamson, Account Manager at Amthal added: “Harpenden Town Council like every local authority has a duty of care to its workforce as well as its community, and must continue to consider ways to ensure their continued safety and security whilst at work. This is where working with a local trusted brand like Amthal, with proven experience to deliver on all security and maintenance needs, can provide total and ongoing peace of mind.”
