Gates for Commercial Properties

Choosing a gate for commercial properties

For commercial premises which regularly receive public visitors, an electric gate is not a luxury, but an essential security measure. Depending on the type of premises you are choosing for and the level of security required, Secure Automation are the experts you can count on to provide a one-stop, tailored security solution.

Offices

“Office” is an extremely generic word which encompasses a huge variety of building sizes and styles. Depending on the size of the premises and the number of employees, it’s commonplace to see the gate incorporated as part of the access control system, with tokens issued for authorised personnel and a central security office for manual operation.

Warehouses

Industrial sites such as warehouses and factories typically have a large entrance span which means it’s impossible to install swing gates. However, this is not necessarily a bad thing, as sliding gates are typically preferred for their cost-efficiency and enhanced security capabilities.

Public Buildings e.g. Hospitals

For public buildings, or offices which receives a good number of visiting traffic, we’d generally recommend a combination of electric gates and car park barrier systems to effectively control both pedestrian and vehicular access.

Schools

The design of the gate can be tailored to incorporate any company colour and logos, which overall contributes to a professional company image and can help to improve customer gratification.

Schools have a duty to protect their pupils, so it’s essential for effective security measures to verify the identity of any visitors. Swinging wrought iron gates or steel sliding gates are generally recommended for the main entrance, centrally controlled by members of staff to monitor access.

Barrier Systems

Car park barriers systems are often combined with access control systems to effectively control vehicular access onto the site. This is particularly useful for businesses in busy areas, as it helps to restrict unwanted access to your parking spaces. The barrier can be raised automatically with a proximity token, or manually by security personnel once the identity of the visitor has been verified.

Gate Materials

Unlike residential gates which can be made from various materials, commercial gates are usually a choice between wrought iron and stainless steel, with the rare exception to occasionally use timber in school gates. This is mainly due to metal being a sturdier material than wood, thus offering a higher level of security. Metal gates are also more resistant to vandalism and other malicious acts such as break-ins, and requires less overall maintenance than timber.

The design of the gate can be tailored to incorporate any company colour and logos, which overall contributes to a professional company image and can help to improve customer gratification.
