I am gathering materials, information, and insights on a post about mantraps. Wiki describes them as:
"In modern physical security protocols, a man trap refers to a small space having two sets of interlocking doors, such that the first set of doors must close before the second set opens. They are also known as air locks in the security industry."
[UPDATE: Here is our mantraps tutorial.]
A few questions for you:
- Which is the largest (number of doors) mantrap application you've seen or worked on? 2 doors? 4 doors? 100 doors?
- Can mantrapped doors be emergency egress doors? (Leaving the secured side.)
- What sort of code oversight dictated design? Sources?
- Did you use special 'mantrap controllers', or did you configure an electronic access control platform to provide the function?
I appreciate your feedback in advance!
