How many entrance control systems do we pass through daily without giving them a second thought? Think office lobbies, leisure centres, gyms, train stations and stadia gates, or revolving doors at shopping centres. When they function correctly, we’re unlikely to notice them, but these systems play a significant role in a building’s sustainability, security, accessibility and design aesthetic.

Centaman Entrance Control are local industry experts with 15 years of experience bringing the world’s most prestigious security brands to protect leading Australian corporations, retailers, governments and entertainment facilities nationally.

Based in Sydney, they supply, install and maintain automatic turnstiles, pedestrian gates, entry and access control systems to architects, specifiers and asset owners wanting high quality, customisable systems for their projects.

Not all entrance control systems are created equal

The ability to tailor their offering to meet architectural briefs sets them apart from the competition. At the EY Centre at 200 George St in Sydney, Centaman worked together with the architect to create a custom concept based on the EasyGate system– cladding it in the same stone and stainless steel as the impressive reception area.

Projects like these showcase the quality of Centaman’s products, which are imported from Europe. Along with their premium product range, Centaman provides 24-hour ongoing support after installation.

Architect: Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp (fjmtstudio)
Featured product: Customised EasyGate System

“People often think that one security gate is much like another. In reality they vary in quality from manufacturer to manufacturer. Just like all cars are not alike – clearly there is a quality difference between a Mercedes and a Kia. Our products and service reflect that difference.”

Centaman Entrance Control and NBS Source

Getting specified is key to Centaman’s business model and General Manager Michael Bystram says this is what motivated them to partner with NBS. The company also provide BIM objects for their products, which are available via NBS Source, allowing architects and specifiers to select key product attributes based on their clients’ brief and place Centaman products directly into their Revit models.

“We look forward to being specified on more projects and having opportunities to work closer with architects to come up with customised solutions that are designed to be part of their creative vision.”
