Recent Tests by TSA Agents Uncover New Security Issue

Hauppauge, NY – April 7, 2009 – TSA authorities have recently been warning airlines about excessive space around their boarding gate doorways. TSA states that the extra space leaves room for unauthorized individuals to sneak behind agents and board a plane. Several airlines have been forced to find a solution to satisfy TSA concerns. Visiontron has responded with a quick and easy solution utilizing their Designer Series Post and Panel System. The rigid post and panels seal off the space and reduce the chance of unauthorized boarding.

This issue has been raised in several New York airports, including locations that have been operating as is for years. It is expected that TSA will continue to test and warn airports throughout the country about this issue. Joe Torsiello, Vice President of Visiontron, said “We are happy to address any issues regarding national security and are prepared to make it our top priority if any other airline finds themselves at risk."

Visiontron offers "quick ship" post and panel packages in standard sizes and finishes. Custom sized boards in unlimited finishes/materials for site specific installations (including post-less desk-to-wall installs) are available. Panels are semi-permanent and allow for complete breakdown when needed for activities such as cleaning.
