Vandal Resistant Intercom and Access Control Solution for South Wales Housing Association

AVA Security have designed and installed the secure intercom and access control system for ten residential blocks totalling almost 100 flats for Bron Afon Community Housing in Cwmbran, South Wales.


The system requirement was to work for the Client with the primary Building contractor, the managers of the Housing Association and, possibly most critical of all- the residents.  Tenant’s were in situ within the housing blocks so full consideration had to be given to considerate working methods, tight health & Safety procedures and a large amount of tenant interaction.


AVA Security fitted the Entrotec range of secure Intercom systems.  Entrotec have a

reputation for delivering industry leading vandal resistant door entry systems and were solely specified for the door entry equipment.   The products are adaptable for a range of applications across the social, mixed tenure and private housing landscape and are  members of Secured by Design, a flagship UK Police initiative to help “design out” crime through the use of high-quality, innovative products and processes

The results include an improved quality of life for tenants by preventing easy access to blocks for non-residents. The incidence of criminal activity such as vandalism and drug dealing is then reduced, helping to make the area a safer place to live.
