For business owners, the safety of your assets, employees, and property is critical to ensuring the seamless operation and prosperity of your operations. When it comes to fortifying security, commercial automated gates stand out as an exceptional choice. Beyond serving as a reliable first line of defence, these gates offer a range of additional advantages, making them an indispensable asset for business owners:

  1. Enhanced Security. Commercial automated gates serve as a formidable deterrent to unauthorised access, keeping intruders at bay. Their robust construction and advanced access control systems make it significantly harder for potential threats to breach your premises.
  2. Convenience and Access Control. Our security gates provide business owners with the ability to exercise precise control over who can enter and exit their property. Whether it’s employees, visitors, or delivery personnel, access can be managed efficiently, reducing the risk of unwanted guests.
  3. Good Looking. Beyond security, automated gates can enhance the visual appeal of your business. They come in various styles and materials, allowing you to choose an option that not only secures your property but also complements your overall branding and image.
  4. Property Value. Installing commercial automated gates can increase the value of your property. Potential buyers or tenants often view security as a significant asset, making your property more attractive in the real estate market.
  5. Operational Efficiency. These gates can streamline daily operations. They help manage traffic flow, especially during peak hours, ensuring a more organised and efficient environment within your business premises. This, in turn, can boost productivity and customer satisfaction.

Choosing the Right Access Control for Your Automated Gates

Access Control for Automated Gates


Access control for automated gates is a vital component designed to grant entry exclusively to authorised individuals. This system can be tailored for both pedestrian and vehicular access, with multiple configurations available to suit your specific needs.

When determining the most suitable access control style for your automated gates, it’s crucial to consider several factors. These include the expected volume of users, the type of access credentials or tokens required, and how gate access will be monitored.

Operational access control involves employees or visitors approaching an access reader post to present their credentials. The most popular security credentials typically include key cards, PIN codes entered on a keypad, RFID fobs, or mobile credentials through a smartphone app.

Security Gates Maintenance & Aftercare

While the gates we install are built to withstand diverse weather conditions and are exceptionally durable, regular maintenance is essential to prolong their operational life and ensure consistent performance standards. At 1st Choice Security Systems, we offer a range of services, including annual maintenance checks, gate repairs, and comprehensive servicing to guarantee the continued reliability of your security gates.

Investing in the right access control and prioritising regular gate maintenance ensures that your automated gates not only safeguard your property but also operate at peak efficiency over an extended lifespan.
