Protecting commercial property is particularly important for businesses that maintain valuables on their premises. Whether solutions are needed to safeguard a store, an industrial property, or a parking lot, a security gate can keep your property protected. Read on to learn more about how you can shield your business from unwanted traffic and individuals with a security gate.
Security gates are available in a wide variety of styles and sizes and are commonly used for large industrial complexes that require perimeter or storefront security. A gate symbolizes strength and is also available in a variety of options in elegant aesthetic designs.
In order for it to provide the most protection it has to be inspected regularly. Without the proper maintenance and correct operation, the gate could jump the track and get damaged, which would cause more extensive repairs to the gate and hardware. Here are some reminders:
- If motor operated, check that the motor operator is working properly, that all safety loops are working, and timer is set to close at a reasonable time to allow traffic safely through the opening before closing.
- Regularly check and ensure that all rollers and tracks are in good working order to smoothly operate the gate
Your security gate investment will reduce the losses that your business might otherwise be exposed to without perimeter protection. As insurance companies are generally responsible for certain losses that occur on commercial properties, installing a security gate might enable you to obtain lower insurance premiums. And if your business currently uses security guards to help safeguard certain valuables, a security gate could eliminate or reduce your need for patrolmen, which saves you on patrol costs.
