A front gate to your business not only can boost your curb appeal and let people know how professional your business is, but it also can help with your security. Having a gated entrance gives you more control and more technical capabilities to add the needed security to your business. Here are 4 reasons a gate is a great choice to improve your security.
A front gate can offer great functionality to a high-traffic, secure facility. A gate set up with a keypad or card reader can help move in and out only the people you want on your property. It adds security for your business while not slowing down the access for your workers or customers, which would otherwise lead to frustration. A happy worker and a happy customer makes every business owners life easier and a front gate can offer just that.
Depending on the front gate you choose, it can increase the privacy which can also increase the security. If valuable or important things are easily seen by potential criminals, they are more likely to be tempted to enter and steal them. A closed in front gate that limits the view people can see from the outside helps to prevent a thief from being able to scout out or plan for how he may want to get into your property. The more work and more questions they have about what they may or may not be able to get, the less likely they are to try. This means your business is much safer.
The Gadgets That Come With
A front gate with an entry pad is often set up with cameras to be able to see who is coming in and out of your business. These can be accessed directly from your smart phone if you would like. If anything does happen, you will have records and video recordings of who came in and when. This, as well as monitoring at any point from your phone, can give you that extra sense of security you’ve been looking for. Adding a front gate alone is great, but if you want to increase that security even more speak with the company installing the gate about flood lights. Criminals are far less likely to try and climb over a fence to break in to begin with, but flood lights that come on when detecting motion, they will hesitate even further to attempt your property. Lighting up your entry gate will prevent criminals who are willing to climb from doing so. No criminal wants the spotlight on them.
A very good security fence will also allow for the potential to lower your insurance premium. This may not seem like a direct improvement to your security in and of itself, but it allows for more security to your company in other ways. Extra money in a companies pocket is a security against closing down. Any company could use more money. On top of that, many companies that may be tighter on money may try to save some of their expenses by cutting costs with things like insurance coverage. By lowering the base rate, it can allow you to cover all potential issues that may come down the road. That added level of security that will make sure (for less money) that you will have full insurance in case of a hurricane, tornado or any other extreme weather, is one of the best securities money can buy.
Security is incredibly important to most any company. A gate is a must if you are one of those companies. From giving you peace of mind with the technology, to more control of who can come in and out, to the peace of mind your employees will now have. These are all a great asset to your business while also improving the property value and saving yourself on insurance premiums.
