Barrier Gate Background:

Barrier gates are an easy way to ensure the security of private premises and can be used for all sized properties. Barrier gates which are very commonplace have found their niche in the market today. For those who find the security of their premises (be it residential or commercial) important, electric gates are the way to go. There is a decrease in the cost of barrier gate and their installation. Aside from the basic kits, there are now many features that can be added to ensure security as well as make them more convenient.

The Barrier Gate Motor
The backbone of any Barrier gate, whether automatic or not, is the electric gate motor, the electric device which actually enables the barrier gate to open and close without having to manually push the gate. All types of electric gates and barriers make use of a motor of some kind. There are many different kinds of electric gate motors. They differ in design, power and use. Depending on the type of gate you have, the suitable electric gate motor will also differ.

Gate and Security
Barrier gates alone, however solid and imposing they may be, cannot guarantee a totally secure environment. Electric gates are recommended to be used in combination with other security features to install a full security system. A few of these features are closed circuits with security cameras, additional gates in conjunction with the main gate, electronic keycards and keypads, security guards.
