A gate installation company creates uniquely designed customized gated for business premises, public areas, and homes. Here are the types of security gates for business and public areas for you to choose from.
Two gates make a bi-folding gate in that each gate has two panels that are adjoined by hinges for you to fold either of the gates when you need it open and the two gates meet at the center when the bi-folding is closed. This gate is recommended for industrial areas where a significant number of cars get in and out of the property because it is easy to open and it saves time.
Where there are high numbers of pedestrians like stadiums and other public places, they can be controlled using a pedestrian security gate. A pedestrian swing gate opens up and extends outward in a particular direction to allow a person at a time into the property. A turnstile is installed alongside a pedestrian swing gate to create a pedestrian portal. A turnstile enables more people to pass through it; therefore, it is suitable for places that have a high volume of traffic pedestrians, unlike pedestrian swing gate that enables only one person to pass through it at a time. A pedestrian swing gate is used to allow special access.
You can prevent big cars from being driven in front of your building or on pedestrian areas by installing posts in a row that are called bollards. Posts of bollards will not obstruct people from getting in and out of your store because they expert leave enough space in between the posts. small cars, large animals, carts, bicycles, and motorbikes can be allowed to pass or obstructed by bollards since the posts can be moved to adjust the space in between them as you please.
A barrier arm or crash beam is made of a vertical arm connected to a control post that pivots upwards are 90 degrees to allow cars to pass. This is not a type of gate that you install to control human beings who get in and go out of the property because people can jump over, squeeze around the barrier arm or crawl under it hence it is only efficient for controlling cars. A barrier arm is highly resistant to impact. The car will be severely damaged, and the people inside will sustain serious injuries if the car hits a barrier arm. If you need a barrier arm to control traffic, you should install a specific barrier for this purpose, which is called a traffic control barrier. A traffic control barrier arm is not highly resistant to impact like a normal barrier arm because it is lighter and it can break upon impact.
