Security behind exclusive shop windows

News | 02. December 2021.
McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Parndorf relies on AirKey, the electronic access system.

The McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Parndorf stands for a first-class shopping experience. Around 160 brand partners, including international luxury, lifestyle and designer brands such as Aigner, BOSS, Diesel, Furla and Philipp Plein attract fashion enthusiasts to Burgenland every day. With 1,900 jobs, the Designer Outlet Parndorf is not only a shopping metropolis, but also the largest private employer in Burgenland.

Ultimate flexibility with maximum security

Decorated shop windows, strolling fashionistas, a hip gastronomic scene and a world of experience for the littlest ones – the Designer Outlet Parndorf offers a shopping experience for the whole family. Behind the scenes, two topics are particularly important for management's work: security, specifically data protection standards and access authorisations.

Major project implemented in six weeks

In autumn 2020, EVVA installed the 595 AirKey cylinders required and an additional 349 mechanical cylinders in the Designer Outlet Parndorf within six weeks. A total of 1,787 ID media and keys have been issued to date. These are divided into more than 230 different areas or user groups. Two people manage the access system, which opens the right doors for employees and suppliers – and only these doors.

An excellent reputation and numerous award-winning and international AirKey projects have led to a cooperation with EVVA.

Optimal solution for complex requirements

The project’s particular challenge for EVVA was its rapid integration into the existing security concept – during full operation six days a week. The different door designs made things even more difficult. Access managers strived for easy handling when encoding the granting of rights in order to offer the necessary flexibility in the event of personnel or supplier changes – and with as little effort as possible.
