Security gates and barriers installed in Leeds
Whilst there’s no doubt that security gates provide a highly effective way to control which vehicles have access to your business premises, it’s very important that you select the most suitable for your location.
Security gates and automatic barriers are a common feature of secure car parks and facilities. Automatic gates are ideal for locations where vehicles are enter and exit a secure area, whilst electronic security gates control access on a vehicle by vehicle basis.
The majority of gates are installed at the entrance to a car park or facility, in a wide range of locations including office car parks, loading bays or storage areas. Security gates can also be used within a wider setting, such as to separate staff parking bays within a public car park. Thanks to the versatility of security gates and barriers, they provide a cost-effective way to protect certain areas.
Which security gate?
A wide range of different types of basic security gate are available, with the majority made from robust metal. Barrier arm gates are widely used in car parks but because pedestrians are able to pass under the gate, offer virtually no protection against pedestrian access. Swing gates – gates which are designed to swing open like a normal gate or door – are widely used in residential properties but can also provide effective protection for business premises. If space is limited folding gates can provide an ideal solution but although they do open and close quickly, additional safety measures are required to prevent the risk of people becoming trapped.
Automatic gates can be controlled in a wide range of ways, from vehicle tag readers, digital keypads or card readers, through to digital transmitters, intercom systems or video camera systems. Choosing the best entry system can be complex and we’re happy to provide further advice on this.
