Technology company Nedap has provided physical access control and long-range readers for vehicle identification at the new AZ Zeno medical care centre in Knokke-Heist (Belgium). AZ Zeno, which opened in April 2018, consists of a hospital with rehabilitation centre, an outpatient clinic, auditoria, public event space and a heliport. Nedap Identification System and Nedap Security Management have worked together on this extensive project.   

It is AZ Zeno’s highest priority to guarantee the security of patients and employees. With Nedap’s TRANSIT long-range identification readers, emergency vehicles get swift access to the hospital’s premises.

Physical access control

AZ Zeno combines functionality and sustainability and respects the rural character of the local landscape

With AEOS, Nedap provides the medical care centre with a complete solution for physical access control, and the system will also be used to manage staff lockers. By combining Nedap’s solutions, AZ Zeno is able to offer both patients and employees the best possible security and accessibility.

AZ Zeno combines functionality and sustainability and respects the rural character of the local landscape. The link between inside and outside and between medical facilities and public spaces is almost seamless. And the centre’s sustainable design focusses on its surroundings, ecological energy and the use of reclaimed materials.

Better accessibility

Nedap-CEO Ruben Wegman: “We are proud that two of our business units contribute to the security of this exceptional and innovative centre and to a better accessibility for its users. The simultaneous implementation of AEOS and TRANSIT is a great example of the complementary character of Nedap’s products.

To implement the system, Nedap collaborated with partner Electro Enterprise Gullegem.
