Benefits of Road Blockers and Rising Kerbs for your Business


What can a road blocker do for your business?

Your business doesn’t have to be a maximum security facility to warrant a Road Blocker or Rising Kerb as they are suitable for any type of premise entrance, especially if you receive any amount of traffic as they can help to ensure the safety of your commercial premises, its assets and staff.

If your business deals with vehicles daily entering and exiting a company car park and/or warehouse, ensuring only those who are authorised to enter will keep your business and employees safe. Our road blockers are designed to do just this.

Manufactured from galvanised steel, our rising kerbs can deter any intruder that is either attempting to enter or exit the premises.

Road blockers can be a subtle feature that are non-intrusive in regards to appearance and simply work to caution drivers that a certain authorised level of access is required. This will help to deter unwanted visitors away from your premises, should they attempt to enter.

Rising Kerbs you can trust

Here at Newgate we ensure all our products are reliable and are manufactured to the highest standard.

If you’re looking for a rising kerb or road blocker to either work alone or stand alongside your security gates or barriers, we can help build you a secure entrance and exit to your facilities.

There are also a range of access controls available that can be incorporated to work with your other security measures. Whether that’s an intercom, proximity card or keypad you can create a system that works best for your business to keep it safe and secure.
