The benefits of a pedestrian gate

August 25, 2014 | Commercial Doors

Pedestrian GateMaintaining the safety and security for residents is something property managers do have to take seriously. In order to keep the residents safe and free from unwanted solicitation, property managers utilize many things to keep out burglars and solicitors, such as motion detector lights, surveillance cameras and even guard towers. But one simple item to consider is adding a pedestrian gate.

A pedestrian gate is narrow opening that is just big enough for people to walk through it. They allow residents to enter a location or property through with the use of a key. These secure gates help protect the property from unwanted guests, including burglars and solicitors. While this may not seem like a lot of protection, the fact is surrounding fences and pedestrian gates reduce unauthorized foot traffic on to a property, especially late at night.

In addition to these pedestrian gates actually making an impact in preventing trespassers from entering your property, residents will have a sense of security when living or considering to move into your community. There are also many different types and styles of pedestrian gates, so you can certainly find one that will complement the look of your property.

If you want your tenants to be free of unwanted solicitation, feel safe, and most importantly be safe, have a pedestrian gate installed. Or if you already have one on your property, be sure to have it maintained regularly to avoid any problems with your gate to prevent an intruder or unwanted guest.
