This simple yet effective solution has been around for decades and you can expect to see barriers at the entrance/exit of a range of business premises; from airports and hospitals to construction sites and industrial estates.
Automatic barriers are a very popular choice for any premises with a private car park, in particular, and they are the perfect security solution for business owners who are wanting to have more control over vehicular access to their car park. If you’re wondering what makes car park automatic barriers so sought-after across all industry sectors, below we have looked into some of the most notable reasons.
Enhance perimeter security
Whether you currently have security fencing around the boundary of your car park or you solely rely on a CCTV system for perimeter security, for example, installing a car park barrier will instantly make your business more secure. This is a really straightforward addition to your car park, yet it adds an additional layer of security, making it much more difficult for any unauthorised vehicles to gain access to your premises and, in turn, your business.
Convenient to enter and exit
Due to the fact that car park automatic barriers can be controlled by access control systems like proximity readers or automatic number plate recognition solutions, they won’t become an inconvenience to anyone but those who shouldn’t be on your premises. Vehicles that are authorised will be able to enter and exit the car park with ease, and you won’t have to manually open the barrier for approved visitors who are trying to gain access either as you will be able to control the barrier remotely.
Deter unauthorised vehicles
Even having a simple automatic rising arm barrier at the entrance to your car park will become a visual deterrent. Unauthorised vehicles won’t even attempt to park on your premises and you won’t have the hassle of there not being enough car parking spaces for your employees. Not to mention, perimeter security solutions of this kind are incredibly effective in preventing criminals from targeting your business too and they can reduce the risk of criminal activity like car thefts, building break-ins and also vandalism.
Prevent misuse of the car park
Installing a car park automatic barrier will also help to ensure that your car park is only being used as it should be, for parking. You won’t have to worry about vehicles using your premises as somewhere to turn around, for example, and you can ensure that levels of traffic are being kept to a minimum. In addition to this, you can rest assured knowing that unwanted vehicles won’t be using your car park outside of business hours when there is no one on the premises.
Versatile in design
There is such a vast range of car park automatic barriers available nowadays and many barrier systems can be customised to suit your application. Once you have established your specific requirements for the type of automatic barrier that you would like, you won’t struggle to find something that meets all of your needs. Not only are there multiple colour options available for barriers, but both the body and the beam can feature LED lights too, so they will be modern and aesthetically pleasing in design.
