The main entrance is designed to restrict the movement of people and objects through controlled spaces and will provide industrial machine safeguarding. It is designed to use two-way flow control, one-at-a-time flow control with security guard room. Another purpose for this entrance is to prevent or control the entry or exit of individuals in terms of security. STAGL has already taken proactive measures by engaging private security company for 24/7 security. On site main access roads and parking areas are also graded.
