With over six hundred combined senior and junior members and a proud history of “no lives lost”, this iconic organisation has been raising generations of little nippers that continue to serve and build better communities across Australia. Like most clubs across Australia, Bulli have many activities and events in and out of the water. Bulli SLSC must manage who has access in and out of their club, as well as store precious life saving equipment for the busy warmer months.
Maximum flexibility required
The Bulli SLSC management team had to consider traffic of each door use with access requirements of each type of user. In addition, Bulli has a diverse locking system ranging from a restricted key system, padlocks, C4 domestic system, and mortice locks, all working with different locking functions based on the volume of door use. Furthermore, with the uncertainty of who has a duplicate key, constant loss of keys, no audit data, no timed access for certain members, and having to incorporate council access to certain doors; it became very clear that Bulli needed an access control system that was accommodating to many different types of users yet offer the security and flexibility that was required to run a surf club.
What AirKey can do
After a thorough analysis of Bulli SLSC current locking system, EVVA proposed the revolutionary AirKey. With AirKey online administrator the Bulli team can manage who has access to their premises, track entry and exit times, and even remotely send temporary access to visitors and contractors. EVVA installed fifteen AirKey cylinders across Bulli SLSC to replace (and complement) their current locking system. The transition time to the new EVVA AirKey system was within two working days, with each door taking approximately five minutes without needing to run any wiring or electrical power to the AirKey cylinders. Bulli SLSC also being a council site, AirKey had to incorporate the council’s key system on three doors. This was performed by using a dual cylinder mortice lock which allows the AirKey cylinder to operate the lock in conjunction with the council restricted key, thus allowing two separate systems to work independently on the same door.
