The FRONT SECURITY Check-in shutter conveyor shutter has been developed to prevent unauthorized individuals to enter the luggage ‘airside’ luggage areas via the conveyor belts.

Security is a major issue at most airports and it is there the more astounding that most check-in areas are what can only be described as ‘open doors’ to the airside operations of the airport.

If no flights are leaving or no luggage is being checked in, these positions are not manned and anybody is free to crawl through and find themselves ‘airside’. Need we say more ….?

Small flappy plastic strips hang in the openings through which suitcases go into the baggage handling area. This baggage handling area is supposed to be a secure area as from there one has free access to the rest of the airfield behind security.

Check-in shutter can be operated in many different ways; a simple push button in a locked cabinet, a simple key operated switch or fully automatic which operates the shutter a moment or two before the conveyor belt starts to roll. It will then shut automatically when the conveyor belt stops.

The check-in conveyor shutter of Front Security is based on the B60 aluminium folding gate. The check-in conveyor shutter is adjusted to the rails of the conveyor by creating coves at the bottom slat. The bottom slat is equipped with polyethylene at all the edges of the coves. The check-in conveyor shutter has been designed in cooperation with the Technical Department of Aeroport de Paris, ADP.

All of our products are made to measure. Prices depend on the measurements of the shutter and the desired options (e.g. enclosures, control options and security devices).
