Automatic gate barriers provide an economical means to control traffic for a building. With one of these systems installed, you can be sure that any traffic coming into the building is authorized and the valuable building space is not being used as free parking by the general public.
Gate barriers with keycard access can have varying sizes and capabilities. You can have single gate, or multiple gates that allow control of authorized vehicles flowing in either direction. An automatic gate barrier provides security without the use of a hired security guard making them a very economical security system. Access is controlled without prejudice, unlike human personnel who may make mistakes due to tiredness, lack of vigilance or just plain laziness.
Another reason for having a gate barrier installed is one of insurance. With the right insurance policy, it is possible to save hundreds of dollars a year with the discount many insurance companies give for installing one of these building accessories. They may also add to the real estate value of the property should it come time to sell the building.
