Translink is Northern Ireland's public transport provider and one of the largest companies in Northern Ireland with a turnover in excess of £100m. Over 75 million passenger journeys are made on Translink services each year. In summer 2005 Translink's new £11.4 million Belfast train cleaning facility was installed with CEM's webEntry™ security system by CEM approved reseller Fire and Security Ltd.
The 170 metre long, 30 metre wide and 10 metre high train facility was built by Translink to ensure that 23 new C3K trains purchased as part of its £80 million investment programme remain in first class condition. The prestigious train cleaning facility situated on Translink's Fortwilliam railway site in Belfast, will allow ten trains on a nightly/daily basis to undergo intensive cleaning.
First Class Security...
webEntry was chosen for the facility due to its ease of use and ability to control up to 32 doors via a web browser. As a web based access control system, webEntry allows full administration of system functions using any networked PC with Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser installed.
"As system installers we found the webEntry system incredibly easy to operate and install. webEntry can be easily upgraded offering Translink the possibility to add future sites at a later stage",
