Paxton Access Control Case Study
Paxton are a leading brand in access control. Adam Stroud, Paxton group CEO said ‘We enjoyed working with D&P, as we can now offer installers a product combining the powerful technology of Net2 with the advantages of a single door handle solution. Would I work with them again? Absolutely.’
Paxton asked D&P to design a simple and reliable mechanism for their Net2 PaxLock product which is a networked access control product in a door handle.
The final mechanism combines elegant design with the practical functions needed for the project. The resulting product is very easy to factory assemble and requires no maintenance. Paxton now have a market leading, robust and reliable product in Net2 PaxLock.
This was a tough challenge, to design an internal mechanism for this RFID door handle in a confined space, and the company had been looking for something like this for a long time.
Paxton now have a market leading, robust and reliable product with Net2 PaxLock.
We were able to rise to the challenge and get the job done within the set boundaries and requirements. Our engineering design and expertise have helped produce a commercially viable and perfectly suited design answer to Paxton’s brief.
The work on the project included: ideas, sketched concepts, 2D visuals, R&D, 3D CAD, test rigs, prototypes, electro-mechanical design, assembly design, engineering drawings, critical analysis of development work and component procurement.
