There are many kinds of fencing that may be appropriate for your business. Depending on your needs, you can choose from welded wire, wood, chain link or even ornamental aluminum if you need something that is a little showier. One feature that can be added to most commercial fencing is an automatic gate. There are a few definite advantages to having this type of entrance installed in your fence.
No one likes to have to get out of their vehicle to open a gate, drive through and then get out again to close and lock it behind them. This is especially true if the weather is rough, or someone is in a hurry. You can simply press a code and the gate slides open to allow entry. There are sensors that will automatically close the gate when the vehicle clears the fence line. This makes getting through the gate quick and easy.
Commercial fencing is a good start but having a coded lock on your sliding gate will prevent unauthorized entry by those vehicles you don’t want to enter your property. The main code can be given out to your employees and staff and it could be disabled during the rush when most employees are coming and going. Delivery and service vehicle drivers can be given a temporary one-time use code to prevent them entering the property during off hours.
Strength and Stability
Commercial fencing is strong and durable, and you need a gate that is equal or better quality so that it can stand up to repeated use. Look for a sliding gate with heavy duty metal construction and reinforcement at stress points. Make sure it has quality wheels and gears that will keep the gate operating smoothly.
Check with a professional fence installer to find out what types of sliding gates are available and which kind will best suit your needs. An installer can ensure that your gate operates smoothly and as needed to let you be in control of your commercial property.
