Automatic gates

Automatic gates are used to control access into a secured area. Most commonly, automatic gates are used at the entrance to the facility, and are used to control vehicular access on and off of the site.

Quite simply, automatic gates replace the manual gate system that requires someone to physically open it and close it. Automatic gates offer a range of benefits, along with a range of installation options.

They can be programmed to provide pedestrian access or voice control. They can use GPS or Wi-Fi integration, come equipped with obstacle sensors, timed movements, and a wealth of other convenient options.

One of the great things about automatic gates is probably one of their most basic functions: they save effort. Gate automation provides not only added security but convenience too, either by sensors, or through the touch of a button.

Benefits of Automatic

Automated gates provide numerous benefits to any facility, commercial or private. Some of the benefits an automatic gate can provide for your facility include:

  • Security: Well-designed automatic gates provide protection from vandalism and various threats while providing the convenience of easy access and departure.
  • Insurance: Certain security carriers will provide a break in premiums if you choose to install an automated gate system on the property, saving you and your company on insurance costs. This is primarily because you are less likely to be a victim of theft.
  • Easy access for businesses: Because of the automatic features of these gates, there is no need for security guards. Not only does this save on labor costs, but it also means quicker entry and exit to and from the business property, cutting down bottlenecks and lines. This is especially important for companies with private parking lots.
  • Safety: Most important for any automatic gate purchaser is safety. Whether the application is commercial or private, an automatic security gate can keep your facility, building and residents safe from threats from outside the perimeter.
