Reception area | Legrand United Kingdom

Reception area

The reception area is often the initial point of contact in any school and creating a memorable first impression is key, however, it is also the main access point for visitors into the building so additional security is vital in this often busy environment.

Lighting control in education

Lighting control

Despite the importance of reception areas and the impact they can have on visitors, the lighting control requirements are quite simple – automated lighting to turn the lights on and off based on occupancy and daylight dimming when sufficient natural lighting is available.


Door Entry

With complex access control needed at all entrances of an education facility the reception area needs extra consideration to ensure that access is still controlled when all gates are open such as drop off and pick up times. Our Bticino 2 wire door entry system allows for access control that is separate from the main access control system and can be controlled from the reception desk.


Desk power

Power will be required to the reception desk for sign in systems. We have a range of options for powering such equipment that are both stylish and functional. Our Incara range has both in-desk and pop-up versions available and has a vast range of functions and finishes that can be customised to meet specific requirements.
