Keeping your employees and investments safe is crucial to running a successful business. Check out these highly recommended gate options from United Fence & Construction Company to decide what works for you and your property.
Types of parking lot gates
Rolling gates are simple yet effective. They slide open and shut on wheels, which helps to reduce space compared to gates that swing open. The advantage of rolling gates is that they do not require you to install a track on the ground, which many find visually appealing.
Cantilever gates are similar to rolling gates with one key difference. They are held in the air by posts, eliminating the need for wheels or a track to roll on. Cantilever gates are far quieter and often seen as an elegant electric security gate solution. They can also work effectively across uneven ground, which other types of gates struggle to do.
Telescopic gates are two retracting gates that slide in opposite directions. Along with being visually appealing, telescopic gates are ideal for locations with limited space, allowing you to maximize on your property’s real estate.
These roll in and out of position using a track. They are quick and easy to install compared to other gates. V-track gates look good while also inspiring a feeling of security.
The electric security gates for businesses can include motion sensors, password-protected locks, and remote controls. We help you customize your gates to fit your security requirements and any unique features of your property.
Maximizing on your security needs
Perhaps more than anything, these gates will help secure your property. Indeed, a strong high-end iron gate is enough to inspire confidence in your employees as much as it will deter potential thieves.
Structurally, the gates will resist any attempts to break them and provide continued assurance as to the safety of your business and assets. You also have the option of ornamental fencing to ensure that your gate continues to make your business look attractive.
How to further improve the safety of your business
Although an electric security gate is a great step toward protecting your property, there are many additional opportunities at your disposal. By installing LED lights across your premises at locations where you believe intruders might enter, you can deter that sort of behavior in the first place. A well-lit complex is far more likely to put off any potential thieves and will do wonders towards making your employees feel safe whilst entering and leaving while it is dark out.
In addition to suitable lighting, ensure that key areas are covered by visible CCTV cameras. Not only will the cameras record any intruders on your premises and alert you to their presence, but they are also incredibly important as deterrents. When you are installing your electric security gate, consider the amount of entrances and exits available. The fewer your property has, the more secure it will be. This also has the added benefit of needing less cameras.
Another tip for improving safety on your property is to declutter the area. By keeping large objects away from your fences, you reduce the number of places for potential intruders to hide. A clear parking lot will look appealing and help keep your business safe.
It is incredibly important that your employees feel safe at work, whether that is leaving the office at night or the safety of their belongings during the day. Employees who do not feel safe are not going to work at full capacity and are far more likely to leave your employment.
Installing an electric security gate is one step toward ensuring the safety of your employees and building a relationship of trust between yourself and your staff. You want your employees to arrive to and leave work feeling secure and save them from negative thoughts of their personal security while on your premises. In the long term, this will greatly affect morale and can even help to boost productivity.
