Conceptual Design for a multi-lane ELBC entrance

Exit Lane Breach Control (ELBC) refers to an Access Control corridor that offers controlled access and secured single direction for pedestrian flow from one access point to another. In many ways, Automated exit lanes are superior to manned exit lane security. They have no given attack or weak point, as built-in redundancies respond immediately when activated or compromised. Additionally, standardized security measures are programmed into each system to ensure that all exits are secured and scrutinized that same way. [1]

Unlike a security guard, or a traditional access control system, ELBC entrances integrate into a building’s overall security. As many facility's security requirements and dimensions vary, automated exit lane technologies are site-specific in design and configured to meet a facility’s required scenario of operations. [2]

Due to modern technological advancements, EBLC is often used in Airports, as the technology's operational autonomy provides unparalleled 24/7 reliability [3], and provides the site with the ability to have less personnel at a given location without compromising the site to potential intruders. All exit lane breach control systems are designed tested and approved to be failsafe via emergency overrides, and are ADA & ANSI compliant [4].
