Established in 2004, JETS is a technical support organisation serving the business aviation and regional airline sectors. It specialises in the maintenance and repair of Hawker Series, Dornier 328, and Bombardier Challenger aircraft.
There aren’t many places where security standards are more stringent than at international airports. When JETS decided to relocate to new premises at Bournemouth Airport, security and safety were two of the first issues its General Manager needed to tackle.
JETS’ new facility consists of two aircraft hangars, office space, and storage facilities. With 30 staff on-site and a steady stream of visitors and contractors, JETS needed a robust fire and security system to bring the premises up to airport safety standards.
Preventing unauthorised access onto the airport’s runway was of paramount importance. Because both hangers have open airside access, JETS needed a read-in/read-out access control system on both its internal and external doors. They also wanted to prevent unauthorised access to the buildings when unoccupied, be able to centrally monitor and control access across the site, and be given early and clear warning in the event of a fire.
