Whether in place around a parking lot or at the entry point of a subdivision, parking barriers are useful automated gate systems that provide easy traffic control in one single, self-contained unit. They’re perfect for handling a high volume of traffic, and they help eliminate unauthorized entry for a greater level of security at a location. Wherever you use them, these devices offer quick, efficient cycles that minimize tailgating issues and create more organized, efficient parking areas.
A great way to use parking barriers is to combine them with slide gates. Together, the parking lot gate and slide gates can heighten the overall security effectiveness at a site. While a hefty slide gate can keep a facility secure overnight, it also moves at a slower rate, which makes it less convenient for the regular traffic of daytime hours.
In situations where tailgating is or could be a problem, a gate needs to move far quicker than that to control it — and that’s where parking lot barrier gates can come into play. Using a quick-close gate can help eliminate the issue of unauthorized entry while also speeding up access.
