The typical office environment must meet the demands of an ever-changing work environment. A significant part of this change is driven by the fact that more employees commute between different company locations, some are working from home and are only temporarily on site at different times. The digital transformation makes the common workplace less static - not only in multinationals, but now also in medium sized businesses. Flexible workplace concepts are gaining in importance. Less office space is alternately used by a larger number of employees. "Desk sharing" becomes part of everyday life. At the same time, co-working spaces are being created all over the world - ready-made working environments that are used for a limited period of time, sometimes only for a day, a week or a month. The users of these co-working spaces are mostly self-employed businessmen, freelancers or start-ups.
An infrastructure is needed that allows a smooth work flow for the ever-changing audience. In addition to notebooks, writing materials, folders, flip charts or tools, the personal belongings of employees, such as drinks and food, should be available immediately, if needed. Employee lockers are therefore gaining in importance in modern office environments. Often these are still equipped with classic deposit locks, such as coin deposit locks or card deposit locks. The allocation and management of the keys, however, requires a lot of effort. Key losses lead to high costs for replacement keys or entire locks, which are necessary due to security guidelines. The fact is, the requirements of flexible workplace concepts can hardly be realized with mechanical locking systems.
More and more workplace environments are therefore being implemented with electronic locking systems using code and RFID technology. The have the major advantage that the change of user rights requires less administration. Lost locking media do not require the replacement of these locks. Permissions are simply reassigned. A forgotten code or the loss of an RFID chip is therefore bearable. However, electronic locking systems still require personnel, e.g. in case of an emergency opening. Changes such as the setting of user permissions must be made directly at the lock.
An increasing number of companies installs electronic locking systems that can be managed "online". Networked locking systems show the lock status and allow remote authorizations. In addition, a sensor periphery can be integrated, which makes it possible to report burglary attempts early. However, most networked locking systems have a major disadvantage: they require a wired network infrastructure. Retrofitting in existing furniture can therefore only be realized with great effort. New locks do not only have to be cabled in the furniture, but also the furniture must be connected to an access point, which in turn is connected to the local network. Especially companies that want to implement flexible workplace concepts in existing buildings face a financial burden that does not pay off economically.
The German locking system manufacturer BURG has created a unique solution. BURG is complementing its proven range of code and RFID locks with energy-efficient wireless technology. Whether in locker cabinets, deposit boxes or output terminals - the locks of several systems, departments or locations can be monitored and controlled wirelessly via an encrypted online platform. Each assignment is displayed clearly. Compartments can be locked, released or reassigned. The locking systems are not cabled themselves and therefore remain even mobile. Another advantage is that the locking systems can be easily used in furniture of various materials, including metallic ones.
Under the motto "Your security made flexible - Furniture wirelessly connected", BURG will be exhibiting together with PINTER at the Security fair in Essen (September 25.09. - 28.09.2018). PINTER, the Baden-based company produces and implements sustainable furnishing concepts with sophisticated, individual design solutions for companies, office environments, fitness studios, and wellness clubs. In hall 3 (stand 3F136), BURG and PINTER will be showing how flexible workplace concepts can be combined with stylish and at the same time secure lockers, valuables compartments, and charging stations.
BURG expands its proven range of electronic locking systems with code and RFID technology adding energy-efficient wireless technology. Whether in lockers, personal deposit boxes or tool cabinets - the locks of several areas, departments or locations can be centrally monitored and controlled via an encrypted online platform. The assignment is clearly displayed. Compartments can be locked, released or reassigned. The locking systems remain wireless and therefore even mobile.
In addition, BURG presents the "Keypad IP54" - a compact electronic code locking system for use in outdoor environments, e.g. in charging stations.
BURG exhibits together with longtime partner PINTER, an experienced expert in furniture and gym design. PINTER produces sophisticated furnishing concepts, individually designed for companies, office landscapes, fitness studios, clubs and spas. Both companies show impressively how furniture security in the corporate context can look like through lockers, safe deposit boxes, rental compartments and mobile phone charging stations.
