Boon Edam

Entry solutions specialist, Boon Edam Inc., has implemented its Speedlane 300 entry system at the Bodytech Fitness Club in Aruba.

Located in the Caribbean, the resort island attracts millions of tourists looking for rest and relaxation as well as a large number looking to maintain fitness while on holiday.

Offering a spacious, air-conditioned gym and modern fitness equipment, Bodytech is open seven days a week giving daily access to between 200 and 400 guests.

The Boon Edam Speedlane 300 optical turnstile will allow fast and easy access to the gym, providing a stringent level of security coupled with a modern and functional design.

Consisting of two elliptical cabinets with angel wing barriers that retract into the units to allow passage to authorised users, the Speedlane 300 barriers turn green when the lane is ready for use and red when the barriers are closing or when an alarm has been triggered.

The solution also provides biometric access control with fingerprint readers, enabling the club to determine which members have paid, allowing the club to better control access to the facilities.

Jason Gerlin, co-owner of Bodytech Aruba, commented: “It’s a very good product and we’ve never had any problems with it – it is very stable and does the job it needs to do effectively. All the employees like the fact that they don’t need to spend time monitoring dates of the membership; it’s all automatic.

“It’s also a very easy system to operate and within a year it has already delivered an outstanding return on investment.”

Fernando Metz, commercial director of Mexim Aruba, the installer of the entry solution, added: “I’d highly recommend Edam entry systems – the quality and performance of the products is unlike anything else on the market.”
