ZEST installs state of the art security features in Belfast call centre for Fortune 500 company.

belfast call centre security systems

A Belfast call centre needed to provide a unique security feature for one of its clients. The client (A Fortune 500 company) required an invisible laser fence within the huge call centre facility.

The Optex Redscan Laser wall system provides invisible wall security provides an invisible divide in the call Belfast centre.

Optex Redscan

ZEST installed a series of Optex Redscan units across the call centre. This provides an invisible laser wall security system down the middle of the call centre. In conjunction with a physical partition the laser wall provides security for the Fortune 500 company with a workspace that’s in the call centre but private from the rest of the companies working within.

A physical partition provides privacy whilst the laser wall provides an extra level of security.

ZEST would like to thank Optex for supplying their exciting new technology, the call centre and the Fortune 500 company. (who chose to remain anonymous for obvious reasons.)

How the Redcan system would look (if we could see it!)

The ZEST team looks forward to teaming up with Optex again in the near future and are excited about provided their innovative products for future clients.

An innovative tech company recently moved to Lanyon Plaza in Belfast. As part of their new (ultra modern) office design they’ve commissioned the ZEST team to install a security system befitting of the futuristic building itself.

Lanyon Plaza is one of Belfast’s most iconic buildings. The mega structure lay dormant for a number of years due to the 2008 financial crisis but is now fully operational with Land & Property Services filling the bottom floors and a number of established companies and exciting start ups filling the upper floors.

ZEST was commissioned to install fire alarms, security systems, refuge alarms and access systems for the building. The companies within the building added their own custom requirements.

The project involved integration with existing security systems in the building as well as creating an entirely new fire and security system for the wing in question.
