What if a worker is wearing glasses or a hard hat?


Irongate's system, designed for high accuracy, recognizes workers even in hard hats or masks. If recognition is challenged (e.g., wearing sunglasses), it prompts adjustments. RFID, QR codes, and pin codes provide backup methods.

How does the system handle data privacy, especially with facial recognition?


Both Irongate Solutions and HammerTech prioritise privacy. Facial recognition data is securely encrypted and stored, complying with regional data protection laws. Biometric data is exclusively used for site access and not shared with the HammerTech platform.

How does the Irongate Solution help to track accurate worker hours?


Turnstile time in and out data per worker ensures precise labour hour tracking. This prevents discrepancies and claims related to inaccurate worker hours.

What makes the Irongate access control system more robust compared to other solutions?


Irongate Solutions is tailored for construction and built to endure harsh site conditions. This prevents breakdowns, bottlenecks, and disruptions, making it a superior choice for construction sites. In the instance of an issue, Irongate support includes dedicated and very responsive support.
