Barry’s studios in London can now benefit from managed access rights across each of its eight London studios, thanks to Mul-T-Lock’s eCLIQ® access control solution.
Founded in 1998 in West Hollywood, Barry’s fitness classes have studios across North America, the Middle East and throughout Europe. Today, there are over 140,000 global members of Barry’s FitFam, with eight boutique studios in the UK.
London-based Astoria Fire and Security Ltd recommended Mul-T-Lock’s eCLIQ® access control solution to all eight of Barry’s studios throughout London, to help combat lost keys and achieve complex access requirements.
Fraser McNair, Contracts Manager at Astoria Fire and Security commented: “The benefits of eCLIQ, including convenience and cost saving to our customer, meant the product virtually sold itself! It gives them the control to manage their security directly from a mobile app that is both secure and easy to use. They can now reconfigure their security within minutes and lost keys can be cancelled immediately. They also have the added convenience of only granting access rights on certain days at certain times depending on the role of the key holder.”
With several employees requiring access to the studios at various times of the day/week and with confidential client data kept on file within each building, Barry’s required a solution that would offer a high level of physical security as well as data protection.
Mul-T-Lock’s eCLIQ® access control system allows end-users to both grant and remove access permissions remotely. This includes scheduling individual access permissions for each key and providing time-limited access. If a key is lost, access can be revoked using the eCLIQ® Go mobile app, all managed from a cloud-based system.
Jacques Vermeulen, Regional Sales Manager for Mul-T-Lock added: “Fitness studios and gyms have very complex access and security requirements, with 24-hour shift patterns for staff, deliveries throughout the day, and contractors needing one-time access. Plus, the management of visitors and their flow around a building, needs to be non-intrusive yet secure and reassuring.
“Security and access systems, such as eCLIQ® from Mul-T-Lock, not only improve safety and mitigate risks but also helps with business continuity, which is a valuable asset to the leisure industry.”
