Alpha Introduces Another Innovative Solution for Intra-Store Protection

NanoGate – "Small Gate, Big Protection" -- Now Available in AM Technology

CHARLOTTE, NC, Sept. 28, 2012 – Alpha High Theft Solutions®, a division of 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 using Alpha’s 3 Alarm® products. AM NanoGate joins the award-winning RF (Radio Frequency) version previously released.

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 truth."

AM NanoGate is available immediately.
