The Importance Of Well Maintained Security Solutions


Gate Maintenance

Having access control systems in place, such as security gates and barriers, is essential to business security but keeping them well maintained is equally important.

Well maintained security gates and barriers are more likely to have an increased lifespan, saving your business money in the long run. Furthermore, regular servicing can drastically reduce the risk of accidents and injuries on or around your business premises.

What are the risks associated with a lack of maintenance?

“Five year old girl crushed to death by automatic gate that did not meet British safety standards”

“The ‘haphazard’ design of a set of electronic gates led to a boy of nine being crushed”

“Director charged with gross negligence manslaughter after little girl was crushed to death”

Unfortunately, these kind of headlines are far to common and cause great upset for families and businesses alike. However, these kinds of tragic and sometimes fatal accidents can easily be avoided with regular servicing on your access control security systems.

It is especially important to ensure that gates and barriers are functioning correctly when they are used at various entrance and exit points.

What are the benefits of gate and barrier maintenance?

There are three main benefits to regular security gate and barrier maintenance or servicing, those being:

  • Extended lifespan of your security solutions
  • Reduced risk of accidents and injuries
  • Reduced long term costs
