How To Choose The Right Security Gate For Your Facility

A Security Gate System is a key component of your building’s overall security, and there are many things to take into consideration when choosing the right security gate for your facility.  Here are four key considerations to help you choose a security gate for your facility.

How Much Space Do You Have Available?

Depending on your location, you may have limitations on the width and/or height in the area in which you are working.  This will greatly impact the type of gate you will be able to use.  For example, buildings in busy urban settings usually have less room for gates than those in remote areas.

How Wide Must Your Gate Opening Be?

You must take into consideration the types of vehicles that are going to be accessing your facility.  If large trucks or vehicles will be accessing your premises, you will need a much larger gate passage area than if your primary traffic consists of regular passenger vehicles.

How Fast Must the Gate Move to Satisfy Your Traffic?

Depending on the amount of traffic at your facility, the speed that your gate operates might be important to you.  Unnecessarily slow traffic can negatively impact production and frustrate everyone involved.  There are some safety restrictions that apply to gate speed depending on the application, we have the experience to determine the ideal size and speed for your needs.

How Much Usage Do You Require in a Gate?

Different gates are built for different levels and frequency of performance.  A gate that is designed for minimal daily operations could easily fail if it is overused.  We will work with you to determine what gate that is perfect for your application.
