Ground Penetration Radar GPR

GPR detects underground infrastructure such as pipes and cabling to enable installations to be carried out with minimum disruption.

GPR is used in the detection of pipes, cables and similar service infrastructure underground, to ensure that trenching and drilling for cable laying is carried out safely and without risking existing infrastructure.

The GPR captures data on a micro-computer, and the operator identifies obstacles and hidden infrastructure, thus avoiding damage and potential service disruption during installation of new services. This data can even be processed by a drafting team, and compiled into a 3D map of below ground infrastructure, crucial for network planning.

Horizontal Directional Drilling

In the 1990’s, the horizontal technology was adapted for utility conduit installations. Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) is also referred to as horizontal drilling, rotary drilling and sideways drilling.

Today, Horizontal Directional Drilling is widely used. HDD allows for conduit placements underneath obstacles and provides maximum protection while, at the same time, minimizing maintenance costs. HDD is used in three major industries: the oil field, the utility industry, and the environmental remediation industry. GPS specializes in the utility industry and the environmental remediation industry.

Thanks to this technology, we can lay cabling and implement installations under roads, rivers, and existing services with minimal disturbance to the area.

Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV)

CCTV is becoming an increasingly popular security method as it becomes more important to manage your security effectively.

CCTV is an integral part of any organizations security system.Not only can CCTV help monitor and evaluate security threats, but their footage is always important in post-incident investigations.

Monitor parking lots, work areas, employee entrance areas, high security areas and building perimeters, and increase your peace of mind.

The simplest form of CCTV consists of a video camera, connected to a monitor by means of a transmission link, which can be as simple as a cable. More complex systems combine several cameras and monitors, sometimes with wireless links.Wireless CCTV systems are particularly versatile, with a wide range of transmission capabilities, sizes and functions.

CCTV surveillance has a broad range of applications in commercial and industrial settings, and systems can range all the way from single cameras, to networks with hundreds of CCTV cameras controlled by an automated computer system.

Access Control

Access Control “dovetails” with security management. From Biometrics and DVR to Time & Attendance monitoring, our access control solutions give you control over the work environment.

Access control is an important part of any security system, and may combine a variety of different methodologies to securely control the access of restricted or sensitive security areas. At Global Platinum Solutions, we offer a range of access control options, and are always willing to advise our clients about the most suitable option, depending on their individual requirements.

Access Control offers the following security features and options:

  • Permits only authorised access to pre-defined areas;
  • Identifies individuals or groups requesting access, and records access attempts;
  • Provides access monitoring procedures controlled by state of the art hardware and software;
  • Local & remote configuration and management;
  • Variety of authentication techniques;
  • Alert management; and
  • Advanced communication – Wireless, Blue-tooth, TCP/IP and local.

Biometrics

 The use of physical or behavioural characteristics, such as fingerprints, signatures, or hand shape to verify identity is known as biometrics. Biometric access control usually involves a scanner or reader, software that converts the scanned data to digital format, and a database of information for comparison.

There are a variety of applications for which this type of access control is suitable, including time and attendance reporting, building access, and process control security. Scanners can read fingerprints, voice patterns, vascular patterns, retina/iris scans and even DNA.

Digital Video Recording (DVR) Security Applications

DVR, or digital video recording configured for security applications record video signals from CCTV cameras for detection and documentation purposes. In the modern security environment, DVR has replaced video recording with high-tech, feature rich options. They can be combined with PC’s and local networks to create an effective component of your security.

Zonal Proximity Control

An innovative system that allows the user to selectively view certain controls on electronic devices without activating the controls functions, or requiring the user to see all available controls.

Capacitive sensors detect proximity, without the functional activation of the control elements, whether they are 0D, 1D, 2D or 3D capacitive, mechanical, or any other form. Sensors can be parsed via software, or may be physically distinct regions. When a certain proximity threshold is reached, a specific action, or series of actions, can result depending on the pre-defined needs.
