Card Access - Card Reader Mounting Ideas

During a recent class discussion, questions were asked about glass mounting readers and other reader security issues. We have glass mounted readers a number of times. In this picture, you can see the HID ProxProII. The customer had standardized on this reader, so we could not use a traditional mullion mount. It is stuck to the glass using 3M double sided tape.

At the inner city schools, the readers were being damaged. We suggested flushing the readers into the wall. We cut a hole in the brick, recessing the reader. Since, seldom are the readers damaged. The plate is a standard piece of plastic we have made at our favorite plastic vendor, cut and edged, brown or white depending on the wall. This design is now going on 15 years and the plastic has kept their doors in operation. It is now part of their standard specifications at all doors.
