For immediate release
Following 2016’s much-publicised acquisition by global access automation leader FAAC S.p.A, Centurion Systems has added substantively to its industrial and commercial product ranges, adding, inter alia, door automation, bollards and traffic barriers to its stable of heavy-duty solutions.
According to CENTURION spokesperson Charl Mijnhardt, the extended range runs the gamut of commercial access control, and emphasises features such as high duty cycles, battery backup and robust construction.
“These operators are designed to work in challenging conditions,” explains Mijnhardt. “They are at home securing the entrances and exits at business parks, shopping centres and mines. I mean, the FAAC 884 [industrial sliding gate operator] is capable of automating gates weighing up to 3.5 tonnes! Just looking at this operator…the sheer authority that it commands…it’s clear from the outset that it means business”.
Last year, CENTURION appointed Emmanuel Sequeira to head up the growth and development of the door automation range.
Sequeira says that the growing expansion of urban development has led to an increase in demand for high-quality, reliable and feature-rich automation and access control solutions, including sliding door automation.
“While sliding door operators undoubtedly fall under the umbrella of access automation,” says Sequeira, “they have traditionally reflected an entirely different market segment than the one associated with, for example, gate and garage door automation”.
“The FAAC range [of door automation solutions] is the culmination of decades of being a thought-leader in this space, and showcases the company’s flair for innovative engineering. The products manage to seamlessly blend superior aesthetics with futuristic intelligence”.
In the coming months, CENTURION will be embarking on a number of aggressive marketing campaigns aimed at introducing the market to its new solutions.
“We are very proud to be a prominent voice in the global conversation around security,” concludes Mijnhardt. “We know that technology is a powerful ally in the fight against crime, and the convergence of different solutions and technologies is at the head of a growing movement to ensuring peace of mind at every touch point”.
