1st Choice Installs Car Park Barriers for Hertfordshire Businesses

Businesses are not obliged to provide a car park for their employees, but promising a secure parking spot is often seen as a great way to attract new staff. Managing a business car park, though, can be a time-consuming project. 1st Choice Security Systems is regularly contracted to install automated car park barriers for Hertfordshire businesses seeking an efficient and affordable solution to car parking problems.

Why Choose Car Park Barriers?

Our car park barriers provide a perfect management system, whether your business has a large or small space designated for vehicles. They require very little space for installation, and can fit virtually any car park entry, no matter what its dimensions are. The 1st Choice team installs high quality automated parking barriers which are designed to be durable, even when used extensively every day. Other benefits include:

  • Weather Proof. Our car park barriers are built to deal with British weather conditions.
  • Low Ceilings Not a Problem. We install gates with folding arms where height is restricted.
  • Efficient Traffic Management. Our traffic barriers provide a rapid open/close rate.
  • Custom Colours. We can match your brand colours with powder-coated RAL hues.
  • 24 Hour Support. If there’s a problem, 1st Choice will be there promptly to solve it.

Parking Barriers With Security Features

Car parks become a security risk when they’re mismanaged, neglected, or badly lit. Car park barriers offer an efficient and secure solution to parking at work. The gates are designed to facilitate rapid entry and exit for authorised users. This stops opportunist parking, gatherings, or anti-social behaviour, especially in larger towns and cities.

Should there be a problem with something becoming trapped in the gates, they will instantly stop. There is also an emergency stop button and a manual override. Additional security features include: traffic lights, stop and no entry signs, boom skirts to stop pedestrians gaining access to the car park. A pedestrian gate, separate to the automated barriers, can be fitted if required.

Traffic Barriers as Part of Your Access Control System

More and more businesses in Hertfordshire are enhancing their security through the installation of access control systems. Once in place, business owners have the facility to check the identity of all visitors to the premises, and deny access if appropriate. Integrating car park barriers into your access control, saves on car park personnel, and provides an efficient ‘front line’ checkpoint.

Access control features that the 1st Choice team regularly install with car park barriers for Hertfordshire businesses include:

  • Keypads or fobs
  • Intercom
  • Automatic number plate recognition
  • Ground loops allowing for automatic detection of vehicles
  • Proximity readers
  • CCTV
