Perimeter Security

When it comes to the security of your premises, your first line of defense against unwanted security incidents is the perimeter security that you choose to put in place.

Perimeter security is a vital part of any site security. Ensuring that all of the external entrances to your factory, warehouse, or indeed any other type of facility, in addition to ensuring that your business is secure will also help to keep your employees, equipment, machinery, and even the building itself safe. 

Whether you are looking to upgrade your current perimeter security or would simply like to add the most appropriate barriers and gates to your premises, it is important to consider all of the different types of perimeter security that are available so that you can make the right choice for your business. 

Tracked sliding gates

These are a good option for those business premises where there is limited room and a gate that swings will not fit. A tracked sliding gate is a good choice for a wide range of entrances and as the name would suggest, slides along a track on the ground in a more space-saving manner.

This type of gate can be manufactured to a company’s specifications to ensure it fits the measurements of any entrance space. Additional security measures can be added to the gate to ensure maximum security to your premises. 

Perimeter swing gates

Swing gates require a little more room on your premises, as they need clearance to be opened inwards taking up entrance space. They are a good option for those premises with plenty of space. They can also be made to the measurements of the entrance to your premises and, combined with modern security devices, offer a secure option to your perimeter for both delivery traffic and employees.

Cantilever sliding gates

A cantilever sliding gate can be manufactured with either automatic or manual operation, and to the height and width specifications required. It offers a very sturdy security system for any premises and is a particularly good choice for those businesses that experience high volumes of traffic. One important feature of this type of gate is that it can be fitted on the ground slopes because there is no need for a ground track.

Rising security barriers

A rising security barrier is one that goes across your site entrance and is raised upwards rather than opened inwards or slid to one side. They come in a range of styles and can be installed very quickly. They can also be tailored to suit the measurements of your site entrance and any requirements that you might have, including fast operating and heavy duty.

These can also be designed and installed as either manual or automatic barriers giving you the best possible options for your premises. 

Consider your options carefully

When it comes to choosing the best gates or barriers for your perimeter security it is important to take a look at the amount of space that you have and also the flow of traffic that your site has. This will play a big part in the solution that you choose for your premises.

Look for barriers and gates that have been manufactured with all of the relevant British and CE standards in place so you know you are getting a quality security product that meets all of the relevant current safety regulations. This will give you and your employees peace of mind and will ensure that your premises have the best protection possible when they are closed.
