How To Increase The Security Of Your Commercial Property

If you want to make your commercial property more secure, Creative Door Services™ can help. We carry an extensive lineup of products, including commercial gates, access control systems, traffic lights, security cameras, and finishing hardware, to ensure your property remains as safe as possible. Here’s an overview of some upgrades you may want to consider installing.

Commercial Gates

If your business requires perimeter security and restricted access, a commercial gate system is a great investment. At Creative Door Services™, we carry both swing and slide gates in a variety of materials, including aluminum, chain link, and steel to suit the demanding conditions of your business. When paired with an automatic gate opener with advanced access control features, it’s nearly impossible for intruders to enter your property.

Access Control System

Gate automation is one of the best ways to secure your property. When correctly installed and maintained, automatic access control systems provide years of worry-free convenience, security, and peace of mind. Here’s an overview of some options you may want to consider:

  • Remote controls allow you to open and close your gate with the press of a button. They’re portable, compact, and easy to store and operate. In addition, all Creative Door Services’™ remote-control systems use rolling codes to ensure that no one can hack your device.

  • Wireless keypads allow you to select a secure and easy-to-remember numeric code that will provide convenient access to your property. Keypads can send an encoded signal to the operator to prevent hackers from discovering the pin. Several models also come with a backup battery pack to ensure the keypad never stops working.

  • Key cards are secure, convenient, and easy to program. You can give each staff member an individually coded card they must hold near a reader to enter the property. This method is ideal if you have a large facility with many personnel as key cards are relatively inexpensive to issue.

  • Intercom/telephone entry systems are available on many gate systems and allow you to control who has access to your property. These systems connect to a landline or cellphone and allow you to identify the person who’s calling so you can either grant or refuse them entry with the push of a button.

Certain automatic gate openers can also be connected via Wi-Fi to a smartphone or computer, allowing you to remotely unlock or activate your gate from anywhere in the world. In addition, you can even opt to receive alerts whenever your gate is left open.

Traffic Lights

Installing traffic lights in and around your commercial facility is a great way to effectively control traffic and prevent accidents. They’re great for parking garages, warehouses, storage facilities, car washes, drive-throughs, and other commercial facilities. You can also wire a signal light or buzzer to an induction loop or photo eye sensor to notify employees of incoming vehicles to prevent collisions.

Security Cameras

Strategically placed security cameras are a great visual deterrent for potential burglars and vandals. In addition, many models come equipped with motion-activated sirens and alarms to stop trespassers in their tracks. Furthermore, if a crime or theft does occur at your facility, the security cameras will record the entire incident so that police can use the footage to find the culprit.

You can also purchase security cameras that record a live feed of your facility. This live feed can be accessed from a connected smartphone or computer. You can get real-time alerts if the cameras detect any unusual activity, allowing you to stay on top of any security breaches no matter where you are.

Pedestrian Doors

Since the pedestrian doors in your facility act as key access points for staff and customers, it’s important to make sure they’re safe and secure. Here’s an overview of a few finishing hardware options you may want to consider:

  • Locksets act as a barrier to keep your facility protected. Grade one locks are the strongest and most durable locking systems on the market. Consequently, they’re certified for use on exterior doors and at high-traffic entry points.

  • Door closers ensure your door closes quietly and doesn’t cause an injury. In addition, certain closers can hold the door open or automatically close it if a fire alarm or smoke detector goes off.

  • Exit devices sometimes referred to as crash bars, provide added security and allow for safe and easy evacuation in the event of an emergency.

Our expert technicians can help you choose the products required to ensure your business isn’t vulnerable to tampering, vandalism, or break-ins.
