This crossroad through a sand quarry is another great example of our automatic barriers. Our client had an older barrier system in use for over 15 years with limited safety, so EA Group carried out a complete replacement of the system which includes the use of safety lasers to ensure a safer compliant entrance for them. #automaticbarrier #trafficbarrier #security

Another great example of our barrier system, this time in a residential setting, these apartments were getting a lot of anti-social activity in their garage/parking area, so a new barrier with a bottom skirt was decided on to prevent entry to the garages.

our client was so impressed with the automatic barrier system we are now quoting his further buildings for the same system. #automaticbarrier #trafficbarrier #security

When purchasing or redesigning business premises, it goes without saying that you will have many different things to consider. Not only is the interior design and layout of the property important but the exterior and also your entrance doors shouldn’t be overlooked either. When you own a public building that customers and clients will be visiting regularly, you will find that the exterior is just as important as the interior.

As far as your entrance doors are concerned, you will have many different options to choose from for your premises. From commercial automatic sliding glass doors to classic business double entrance doors, you can guarantee that there is a brilliant option available for any premises. These days, automatic doors are becoming more and more popular and it isn’t uncommon to see these used in numerous different commercial buildings. There are a wide range of benefits to choosing automatic doors and if you’re wondering what these may be, keep reading today.


Make your premises easily accessible

As a business owner, accessibility should be important to you. After all, you want to ensure that everyone will be able to enter your premises regardless of their physical capabilities. Thankfully, automatic sliding doors, revolving doors or swing doors can help you with this. Using automatic doors will allow you to ensure that people are able to enter without struggle or embarrassment and this will reflect positively on your business.


Much more convenient

All automatic doors are incredibly convenient to use and being able to enter your business premises even if you don’t have a free hand to push or pull a door is very helpful. Depending on the business that you run, you may find it isn’t uncommon for visitors to be pushing a pram, carrying shopping bags, or even to be on the phone, so your automatic doors will allow them to enter the premises without any hassle.


They look professional and aesthetically pleasing

It is essential that your business premises look professional and you can guarantee that simply installing commercial automatic sliding glass doors or all-glass automatic revolving doors, will help you to ensure you’re giving off the best first impression to your visitors. These doors are always aesthetically pleasing and with a wide variety of designs and styles to choose from, you can easily choose something that is perfect for your premises.


Help you to maintain a comfortable temperature

More often than not, businesses tend to prop their doors open to prevent any issues in regards to entering the premises, but this can make it impossible to maintain the temperature inside the building. Thankfully, because automatic doors only open when necessary and also close after the visitor has entered, they will actually be closed most of the time, which will help with temperature control. This will, in turn, make your premises much more energy-efficient too.


Hygiene control

For some businesses, hygiene is an essential factor to think about when installing external entrance doors and automatic doors are perfect for businesses where hygiene control is very important. As visitors don’t need to touch the doors when entering, this can help prevent the spread of germs and also the regular closing of the doors will prevent dirt and dust from polluting the inside of the premises.


Installing automatic doors

All in all, there is no denying that installing automatic doors is a brilliant idea no matter what your business may entail. You can guarantee that you will easily be able to find the perfect solution within the range of commercial automatic doors on the market these days and ultimately, this type of door will work brilliantly at all business properties. It is fair to say that installing automatic doors is a brilliant business decision all round.

You can expect to find business access control systems in offices, hotels, educational buildings, retail properties and a range of other commercial premises. There is no denying that they are a brilliant security system to use and there are numerous benefits to being able to control who can pass through a given secure point. Also, the fact that you’re able to integrate access control systems with other security systems makes them even more popular these days.


When it comes to choosing a business access control system for your commercial premises it goes without saying the vast selection on the market can be incredibly overwhelming. With numerous brands and solutions available, you will want to ensure that you’re investing in the best possible system for your needs. So, to help any businesses who are currently contemplating which access control solution is best, below are a few essential things to consider when choosing your system.


What do you need to be able to fit the system to?

Whilst the majority of companies will simply be looking for a business access control system that can be fitted to single or multiple doors, it is worthwhile noting that this isn’t all they can be used for. These systems can also be fitted to turnstiles, traffic barriers or gates too, so think about where you’re going to require them at your premises.


How many areas do you need to control access to?

Consider which areas in your building will need to have controlled access and also what type of access each individual area will require too. You may find that your needs will differ slightly from area to area, so it is important to ensure you’re choosing a security solution that will be able to accommodate this.


Who is going to require access through the system?

Establish who is going to need access to each area you plan on controlling too. Think about both full-time employees and also anyone else who may require access every now and then, such as cleaning companies for example. You can then ensure you’re choosing a business access control system that can handle the amount of traffic it’s going to experience.


Which entry method will work best for your business?

Not all access control solutions will use the same entry method, for example, some use an identification card or key fob that is presented by an authorised person whereas others will use keypad pin code entry systems. Take some time to consider the pros and cons of each entry method before deciding which is most suited to your business.


Are you interested in integrating the system?

As mentioned above, these days you can integrate your business access control system, so consider whether this is something you’d like to do. Also, think about what you’d integrate it with, whether you’d like an alarm system, CCTV, a monitoring system etc., so much is possible these days with these smart security solutions.


Do you have a budget in mind for this security system?

Whenever you’re installing something new at a business premises, it is likely that you will have a budget in mind. Whether you’re working with a security company or not, make sure you know what this budget is before you begin looking into business access control systems, it will help you to ensure that the solutions you choose are affordable.


Choosing a business access control system

Hopefully, when taking the time to carefully consider everything mentioned above, you will find it easier to choose between the many different business access control systems available. There is no denying that whenever you invest in a security system, there is a lot of pressure to ensure you choose the best solution available, but when you take the time to think about the different factors that affect your choice, you can then select a system confidently.
