Geymsla24, a Self Storage Owner/Operator in Reykjavik, Iceland, is the first to implement Janus International’s SecurGuard™ Electronic Lock/Overlock/Monitor for Roll-Up Doors
(Temple, GA Reykjavik, Iceland) Janus International Group, LLC and Geymsla24, a Securitas Company, announced today that Geymsla24 is the first self storage owner/operator to implement the Janus International SecurGuard Electronic Lock/Overlock/Monitor for Roll-up Doors (Electronic Lock). The Electronic Lock was successfully installed and integrated with Geymsla24’s access control and security solution as part of a conversion of a former warehouse to a state-of-the-art Self Storage facility in Reykjavik, Iceland.
Geymsla24 is the premier Self Storage owner/operator in Reykjavik, Iceland. Their parent company, Securitas hf Iceland, is the leading provider of security solutions for all of Iceland. As a result, the Geymsla24 facility uses the latest in access control and security solutions to offer its customers a safe and secure experience with 24-hour access to the facility and their individual Self Storage units via proximity readers and the Electronic Locks.
Unlike in the United States and elsewhere in the world, Geymsla24 does not use a tenant-controlled lock to allow the tenant access to the individual Self Storage unit. All the access is provided via the individual proximity cards and Electronic Locks.
In addition to the SecurGuard Electronic Lock, Janus International also provided all the doors and hallway systems for the Geymsla24 conversion.
Regarding the implementation of the SecurGuard Electronic Lock, Terry Bagley, Vice President of Business Development for Janus International remarked “it was a great experience for Janus International to work with Geymsla24 to help implement their vision for this state-of-the-art facility. We learned a lot from each other. It is exciting to see how fast their initial phase has leased up – clearly there was demand for a new, safe and secure Self Storage facility with 24-hour access in Reykjavik. It is great to see a company based in Iceland leading the way in tenant access and innovation.”
Graham Lomax, UK Plant Manager for Janus International stated “Regardless of the remoteness of this opportunity, we could not have worked with a more professional and flexible team that we found with Geymsla24 and Securitas. We are delighted to see the success Geymsla24 has had in leasing up Phase I of this conversion and look forward to helping them build out Phase II of their project and their continued success in Self Storage.”
Einar Gudlaugsson, Managing Director - Business Development for Securitas hf. noted “We searched the world over looking for an individual, internal (interior) electronic lock solution for our roll-up doors that we could utilize with our access control and security solutions. We found it as a result of our partnership with Janus International – all we had to do was ask the right questions! Our parent company’s reputation is built on providing safe and secure solutions for individuals, businesses of all types and government entities in Iceland, so we had to provide the best access control and security as we ventured into Self Storage – it was expected by our customers. Janus International, with their SecurGuard Electronic Lock gave us the ability to provide that solution and exceed our customer’s expectations. Ultimately, Janus International has helped us attract and retain tenants that like our model.”
