Checkpoint Systems, Inc. (NYSE: CKP), today
announced the launch of AM (Acousto Magnetic)
NanoGate®, an affordable security solution that
provides intra-store protection for large retail stores
and full store protection for smaller retail boutiques
Alpha’s 3 Alarm® products. AM NanoGate joins the
award-winning RF (Radio Frequency) version previously
NanoGate is a small gate that offers big protection
against shoplifting. It is an innovative, flexible,
small security antenna that can be easily installed in
unprotected zones within a store where thieves can hide
and attempt to remove security devices. NanoGate works
exclusively with Alpha’s 3 Alarm technology, extending
their reach and enhancing their value as a proven
high-theft security solution.
NanoGate is simple to install – six screws and
plug-n-play. With an aesthetically pleasing design,
NanoGate requires no wires, no tuning and no service
contract, and comes with a battery back-up option.
NanoGate triggers Alpha’s 3 Alarm technology, preventing
thieves from taking retailer’s high-risk merchandise
into restrooms, emergency exits, elevators, fitting
rooms, and any other zone retailer’s want to prevent
their merchandise to go within the store.
The small, attractive NanoGate antennas also provide
excellent security in retail boutiques and specialty
stores by stopping high-theft merchandise from being
stolen via their smaller store entrances and exits.
RF NanoGate recently won the "Best Retail Product" award
in the economic efficiency category in Germany.
According to Wolfgang Meltzner, store manager of A.T.I.,
which has installed RF NanoGate in its outlets, "When
high-priced motor oils and tools began to disappear from
our shelves, we decided to do something about it. We
began using NanoGate together with matching 3-Alarm
Alpha solutions. From the first day, we not only noticed
the deterrent aspect, we also saw a decrease in
shoplifting, which is what we hoped for."
According to Larry Yeager, vice president and general
manager for Alpha, "For large retailers looking to
prevent specific products from being moved to
unprotected zones within their stores, NanoGate is the
perfect solution. It also provides a cost-effective
means for smaller retailers to protect their high-risk
merchandise. Beyond shrink benefits, retailers can also
count on both RF and AM NanoGate to improve merchandise
availability. This in turn leads to increased sales and
higher levels of customer satisfaction at the moment of
AM NanoGate is available immediately.
