1st Choice Security Systems Install Electric Gates in Surrey

Surrey, sitting to the south-east of London, is a popular location for commuters wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s one of the most wooded counties in the UK, with close on 25% of tree coverage. There’s no large cities within its boundaries. Instead Surrey is a patchwork of villages and towns stretching from Epsom in the east to Farnham in the west.

Residents of this leafy region are traditionally blessed with a lower than average experience of crime. In line with the rest of the UK, though, there has been a significant rise in the amount of violent and drugs-related crimes across the county. Violent crime now makes up 25.2% of total crime in Surrey, an increase of 20.4% over the past 12 months.

Security Gates Installation in Surrey

There’s any number of reasons why residents of Surrey may decide to install automatic gates, and rises in crime aren’t necessarily a primary consideration. As regular visitors to this region, 1st Choice Security Systems engineers find that the top 4 reasons for electric gate installation are:

  • Deterrence – demonstration of security awareness
  • Increased control over who enters the premises
  • Security – especially for older homeowners
  • Property enhancement

Many of the clients we work with tell us that having security gates sends out a very clear signal to opportunist burglars that they should look elsewhere.

Commercial Electric Gates in Surrey

Security concerns for businesses and public institutions such as schools are similar across the country. Their buildings tend to be vulnerable in that they need to be open to the public, whilst simultaneously protecting their premises and employees from criminal activity. A combination of electric gates and access control have been proven to work well as a solution.

Secure automatic gates are an excellent way to control the flow of visitors onto your site. 1st Class Security Systems engineers are able to install access systems which provide the opportunity to check the identity of visitors before opening the gates for them. Access control can be carried out using a swipe card, key code, or press button operation.
