Installing Car Parking Barriers for Your Bedford Business

Business owners in Bedford are not obligated to provide parking spaces for employees, but proffering a secured parking spot in a busy central location is a great way to attract staff. Clients have told us that what puts them off is the amount of management they entail. In this blog 1st Choice Security Systems suggests that car parking barriers in Bedford, could be the perfect low maintenance, high security solution.

Secure Car Parking for Businesses

When car parks are neglected, or poorly lit, they become a security risk for the business and employees. Installing car parking barriers provides a secure and efficient solution to this problem. They are designed to facilitate rapid entry and exit for authorised users only. This eradicates opportunist parking, trespass or anti-social behaviour, especially if you have town centre premises.

Our automatic barriers will stop immediately if something becomes trapped in the mechanism. They provide manual override, and there’s an emergency stop button. Other security features include: stop and no entry signs, traffic lights, boom skirts which make it difficult for pedestrians to gain access. A separate gate for authorised pedestrians can be fitted alongside the gate if required.

Traffic Barriers Integrate Into Your Access Control System

Many Bedfordshire businesses are installing access control systems as a means of enhancing their security. This allows business owners/building managers to maintain an accurate headcount and check the identity of all visitors. It’s simple to integrate your car parking barriers into an existing system. This saves on staff, and strengthens your security.
