Intersec 2017: new record in exhibitor and visitor turnout

Intersec 2017 concluded with a new record in exhibitor and visitor participation, ensuring the three-day event wrapped up proceedings on an all-time high. According to organiser Messe Frankfurt Middle East, the Dubai security showcase attracted 33,501 visitors from 129 countries, as they sourced solutions and networked with 1,304 exhibitors from 58 countries.

The five per cent year-on-year growth in both visitor numbers and exhibition size underlined the international importance of the annual showcase, where more than 150 exhibitors launched products across the seven show sections of Commercial Security, Fire & Rescue, Safety & Health, Homeland Security & Policing, Information Security, Smart Home & Building Automation, and Physical & Perimeter Security.

“The Middle East commercial security, homeland security, and fire safety market continues to grow, and consequently there’s a strong need for technological advancements in solutions in terms of features, specifications, and upgrades,” said Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Middle East. “In an industry that is constantly evolving, and where more and more projects are being released into the market, the need of the hour is to be present at the right time with the right solution … The show’s success is due to it being able to efficiently provide market-specific solutions.”

Key features at Intersec 2017 included an Outdoor Demo Area & Drone Zone, a Jobs & Careers Pavilion, the Techtextil Pavilion, a Safety Design in Buildings Pavilion, and a Smart Home and Building Automation Pavilion.

The 20th edition of Intersec returns from 21-23 January 2018. More information is available at:


Effective security with elegance

For a market that has such high expectations of both design and security, the Fastlane Turnstiles product selection for demonstration at Intersec in Dubai had to be exceptional. Some of our best-selling products were on display, together with some new innovations which are particularly suited to the Middle East.

The products on display showed how Fastlane turnstiles simultaneously provide the required level of security whilst also complementing every high-spec, elegant environment.

Glassgate 150: One of the newer additions to the Fastlane range, the super low cost Glassgate 150 barrier uses pedestal height glass to elegantly fit within an environment without intrusion.

Glassgate 250: Dual security barriers for provide the familiarity of the ‘door-like’ action of the barrier which gives the user confidence and ensures quick user acceptance.

Glassgate 300: A recent addition to the Fastlane range, this model offers several glass barrier options in an exceptionally compact footprint, plus many bespoke options.

Intelligate 300: The Fastlane Intelligate 300 is a bi-directional motorised access gate, primarily designed to allow for an extra wide lane for wheelchair users and people with reduced mobility as well as large deliveries.

Glasswing Compact: Unlike other turnstiles in the Speedgate range, the glass barriers of the Glasswing retract inside the pedestal after a valid card has been presented. With a lane width of 550mm, the Compact is ideal for space limitations.

Integration options were also on display, with the Glassgate 150 model showing how lift displays can be integrated into the black Granex™ surface.
