Due to the ever constant threat of trespassing, intrusions and pilfering, more and more Hertfordshire commercial property owners are upgrading their security systems to include automated gates. These types of security gates are now designed to be operated electronically. Electric gates can be operated remotely when installed at any factory or office enclosure.
The most common types of security gates are either slide gates, swing gates, lift gates or barrier gates. These all have their benefits but mostly this depends on the amount of space available for construction, and also for the purpose. Most commonly a swing or slide gate would be used on a commercial property entrance whilst barrier and lift gates would suit a vehicular or logistics environment.
These automated gates provide a 24 hour protection against vandalism and unwanted entry. They act as a deterrent to thieves. They prevent unlawful entry to secure areas. Their durable construction means they are able to withstand adverse weather conditions and can also withstand any attempts to damage or forced entry.
It is also possible to place a barcode on vehicles which means the Hertfordshire security gates will open without having to stop, wait or remember any pin codes which is definitely an advantage when high volumes of traffic are expected throughout the day and night.
