Are you contemplating the installation of an automated gate for your business or residence? If so you are not alone. Many companies and homeowners are purchasing automatic gate systems not only for protection but for convenience. Servian can help you make the best possible decision to meet your security needs.
An automatic access gate is your first line of defense for added security allowing you to control access to any area. There are many reasons why you should purchase an automatic access gate. Weighing your options and researching the features and benefits is the best place to start. Here are a few features and benefits to get you started:
There are six kinds of automated gates, although there are some basics you must consider when choosing your automated gate system. The most popular types of gates to choose from are…
The other types of automatic gates are cantilever, vertical lift, vertical pivot lift, bi- folding, and barrier arm gate. Some gates are privy to city and state approval. Your Servian technician will provide you with all the information you need.
When choosing an automated gate system, there are some additional features to consider. A major factor would be the overall size of the opening. It is important to be mindful of the amount of space available on all sides surrounding the gate. In rural areas where space is plentiful, any type of gate can be used. In neighborhoods and within city areas choices tend to be limited. The weight of your gate will be determined by the height, width and the materials such as steel, wood or aluminum. Opening and closing speed will be determined by need. A gate that opens and closes slowly may be optimal for a residential area but for businesses it can cause a security breach or encourage tailgating and long lines. Where will your gate be installed? Gates are designed to operate on a level grade. Gate operators that support an incline or decline will need to be taken into consideration during installation to avoid accessive wear and tear. Gates installed in residential areas where children are present must meet specified safety regulations. Is your access control system considered light- duty or heavy- duty? The light- duty gate will operate efficiently off of 110/120 VAC electrical power, whereas a heavy- duty gate needs 220/240 VAC electrical power. When weighing the option of light versus heavy duty, you must think about the weight and the frequency of use. Choosing the best automated gate system to suit your needs is a big decision. You don’t have to do it alone. The experts at Servian are available to assist you in making the best possible decision.
