Introduction to Security Gates and Barriers

Choice of security gate design is very important in the security of the premises. Each design has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. These can be narrowed down by looking at access needs, site restrictions, costs, traffic flow, call for service response time requirements, landscape needs, building aesthetics and counter space requirements.

Different Types of Security Gates and Barriers

At Boundary Gate and Barrier we have a variety of different types of security gates and barriers to suit your individual site needs.

Bi-fold Gates

Bi-folding, trackless speed gates open quickly allowing a fast throughput of traffic whilst maintaining security of the premises. They’re the ideal security solution for wide openings such as warehouse and factory units.

Vehicle Barriers

Vehicle barriers are perfect for controlling traffic management and come with a number of design features which can be altered to suit site operations. They are also an ideal solution for car park security and create a physical and visual deterrent.

Any vehicle barrier installed by BGB will be CE marked and fitted in line with current safety regulations. BGB’s chosen vehicle barrier systems can be configured to manage a wide range of site and traffic applications, creating unlimited parking control and flexibility. The barriers can be integrated into existing on-site traffic access control systems, including vehicle tagging, card access and ANPR technology.

Gate and Barrier Maintenance

All gates and barriers will require maintenance. For example, gate panels need to be replaced with new ones when damage becomes visible. Routine inspections are also needed to ensure that the system is operating properly. When systems are set for long intervals of time, they can will need more frequent inspections since water can accumulate in some components.

At Boundary Gate and Barrier we provide a Maintenance package which is competitively priced, as well as a 24/7 call out service, 365 days a year. Our Gate and Barrier technicians are located across the entire UK so you will never have to wait long for a gate or barrier repair either.
