Installing safety gates is one of the best options to prevent unauthorized entry into commercial property during non-business hours. The doors are available in a variety of styles, including flat doors, barrier doors, lift doors, industrial safety gates, and sliding doors. Areas with high foot traffic can benefit from automatic doors, while small businesses can save money with padlock designs.
Keeping company property safe and preventing vandalism, intrusion, and theft is a top priority for any business. Even if the insurance policy covers the loss, the damage can affect productivity or cause problems for the customer. Here are 12 ways the right gate can benefit a company:
1. Create limited access points
With safety gates, businesses can set up guard stations or install keyboards to prevent unauthorized people from entering the business. By setting up a single entrance gate with only one passage in and out of the hotel, staff can more easily monitor when guests come in and out while preventing lawyers from interrupting work.
2. Increase property value
Gates can add value to commercial real estate and can add beauty to the exterior of a building. Studies have shown that installing safety gates can increase property values by up to 5%, resulting in a substantial return on investment in security and safety.
3. Provide 24/7 security
Unless the business is open 24 hours a day, sometimes property may be left unattended. Tall gates keep out intruders and can protect heavy equipment and other outdoor assets from curious passers-by. It also prevents vandalism or littering and keeps lawns and building appearances clean and professional.
4. Stop intruders
Physical gates can form a barrier against trespassing or theft of property. When used in combination with alarms, safety gates can slow down intruders, allowing law enforcement to react in time to stop thefts or catch criminals. In a more positive outcome, the gate blocks entry to the point where potential intruders turn to different options.
For example, I have a friend who is a used iPhone supplier in China. His company keeps many valuable electronic products in its warehouse. To prevent burglars from entering, he installed safety gates and alarm devices at the entrance of the company. To protect his products from theft.
5. Physical deterrence
Gates and barriers are a powerful deterrent to crime, physically preventing criminals from accessing your website and committing theft or causing damage to your property.
6. Visual deterrence
Security doors not only act as a physical deterrent, making it harder for intruders to enter your place of business, but they also act as a visual deterrent. If criminals find that your premises are well protected, they are less likely to try to break in.
7. High cost performance
Having automatic doors means less need for security personnel because access can be controlled by the system, saving you money and resources.
8. Better control
Features such as combination locks, password keyboards, intercom systems, cameras, and license plate recognition can be used in conjunction with the gates to make it easier to control and monitor who visits your site.
Gates provide privacy in addition to security. This is critical for businesses operating in sensitive or highly competitive areas. It also means passers-by don’t get a good visual of the scene, making it difficult for criminals to plan attacks.
10. Return on investment
Perimeter security is a positive investment in the future of your business. Gates can help protect valuable inventory from theft and damage, saving you money in the long run because you don’t have to invest in new inventory and equipment to replace stolen or damaged goods.
11. Lower insurance
Investing in security doors can help lower your insurance premiums because they enhance your security, which reduces the chance of a claim.
Since the risk of someone illegally entering your property will be reduced, so will the risk for your insurance company, which means they may be able to offer you a better price.
12. Legal compliance
In addition to providing physical security, gates protect people and comply with health and safety standards, helping to ensure you comply with relevant legal requirements.
