It isn’t uncommon for commercial properties to require additional security. Often, the simple locks that are provided on their external doors simply aren’t enough to prevent unwanted guests from entering the property. However, not only do commercial property owners need to consider additional security on their external entry doors but they also often need to contemplate their options for internal operations too. An excellent internal door security solution is automatic door barriers. If you have never heard of these before, keep reading today, our team here at the EA Group have put together an easy to understand guide containing everything you need to know.

 

What is an automatic door barrier?

 

An automatic door barrier is the perfect traffic control system for pedestrians within shops, schools, offices and hospitals. It is specifically designed to help businesses control the number of people in their building, also allowing them to keep track of any visitors. If you’re simply looking to increase the security in, and around, your property, having automatic door barriers installed could be exactly what you need. You won’t have to worry about locating keys and turning a lock, it is a much more convenient solution in an emergency situation.

 

Why do people use automatic door barriers?

 

People often choose to use turnstiles specifically for the prevention of piggybacking and tailgating. They are the perfect solution for stopping any unauthorised person following an authorised person through either with or without their knowledge. We have installed these automatic barriers for pedestrian control, to count visitors and also for security purposes to work alongside existing access control systems. Whether you are looking for a turnstile to work with a swipe card, barcode, bio-metrics, coins, tokens or tickets, the EA Group can assist you.

 

Who uses this security solution?

 

Ultimately, this type of solution can be used in a range of different settings, however, they are most popular in commercial properties that have high foot traffic.

Door barricades can protect anyone inside any type of settings from intruders and people who are deliberately wanting to hurt them. They have been increasingly popular with the unfortunate rise in terror attacks in this day and age.
