Why should you install car park barriers on your premises?


Restricts Unwanted Visitors

Car park barriers help to restrict unauthorised individuals from entering the premises, keeping your car park free from unwanted guests and leaving more spaces for your staff and visitors to park. By ensuring parking spaces are available for staff, it can help your staff to arrive on-time and help your business run more smoothly.

Reduces Staffing Costs

Automatic car park barriers can reduce the need to employ extra staff at the entrance to your premises. With advanced features like number plate recognition or access controls like keypad entry, you can eliminate the need for guards patrolling the entrance to make sure only authorised personnel can gain entry, as this will be done automatically.

Additional Security

Security is an important consideration for any industrial or commercial premises. If your site contains any expensive equipment or machinery then a robust parking barrier can deter potential thieves and clearly define your sites perimeter. These additional security measures can also help to make your staff and visitors feel more safe and secure when parking at your premises.

Prevents Parking Overflow

Car park barriers can reduce the overflow of vehicles trying to park on your premises by limiting the number of people who can enter. This helps in the event of an evacuation as the car park isn’t overfilled, which also allows easier access for the emergency services.

Eliminates Through-Traffic

Depending on the location of your business, you may find that unauthorised vehicles use your premises to take a shortcut to their destination. This can cause potential accidents by having unnecessary levels of traffic in your car park, creating a hazardous environment for both staff and visitors.

Personnel Monitoring

Traffic barriers help to control the access to your whole site, making it easier to determine which staff are on-site and can help with monitoring staff attendance and punctuality. For busy distribution centres, parking barriers can assist with the monitoring of any goods in or out.
