Many commercial businesses and government facilities throughout Florida rely on FDC access systems for their building access needs. Whether it is a city hall in Jacksonville, a government contractor in Miami, an airport in Tampa, or a theme park in Orlando, FDC access systems can be custom built to suit the needs of the customer.
Card access systems come in a variety of forms these days. While many are familiar with magnetic stripe (or swipe card readers), the card access industry is moving more toward touchless systems. Touchless key cards, or proximity cards, don't require the access card to make physical contact with the card reader. This means less wear and tear on both card readers and the access cards themselves.
Proximity cards don't need replacing as frequently as the old magnetic stripe cards used in swipe card readers.

Looking for parking garage tilt gates or sectional grille gates (roll up garage door style of gate)? If so, FDC StrongWeld tilt gates are the perfect security solution for you. Our custom-built parking garage gates can keep out trespassers, and help protect the assets, belongings and vehicles of you, your residents, patrons, or visitors.
StrongWeld Tilt Gates
Tilt gates (or tilt grilles) are flat panels that tilt as they're lifted upward to rest flat against the ceiling. If brought in during the design phase, our parking garage engineering team can design the perfect tilt gates to fit in to your parking garage. We can provide CAD drawings or take your existing CAD drawings and architectural plans and insert parking garage gates while ensuring ADA clearance and life safety requirements. Retrofitting to an existing garage or fitting garage access gates into a parking garage that is currently being built is also an option, but it is best practice to get our team involved as early as possible so that the proper distances are considered during the architectural stage.
StrongWeld Sectional Grille Gates
Nothing provides convenience, elegance, and security to your parking garage as well as StrongWeld sectional grille gates. These gates fold at the section joints allowing the door to raise in a straight upward direction and then curve 90 degrees along the ceiling.
When island, lanes, or walkways are present, FDC can create walls or cages out of the same fabric as the grille gates or tilt gates to match and keep the garage secure. Gate controls can also be integrated with both vehicle and pedestrian gates leading into the garage. For an added layer of security, FDC can also add barrier gates to vehicle lanes to help prevent tail-gating.
Whether you need parking garage gates, tilt gate CAD drawings, or if you want an engineering team to step in and design the garage's access control system for you, FDC offices in Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando & Miami have experienced personnel to help you plan it out properly.
StrongWeld gates can be custom designed to fit your place of business. Talk to a consultant today about custom gate design, signage and colors.
CCTV Surveillance Systems
For many parking facilities and large residential and commercial buildings in Jacksonville, Tampa, Miami, Orlando, FL and beyond, surveillance is done through a series of surveillance systems & security cameras linked together via closed circuit television (or cctv) to a security or surveillance systems room. These surveillance systems rooms are equipped with monitors that can view all camera feeds simultaneously or switch from camera to camera for a bigger, more detailed look at what is going on.
Surveillance systems rooms and cctv closed circuit television can help keep an eye on parking equipment, customers, residents and facilities for better safety and security.
FDC - CCTV Installer
A cctv installer like FDC can also set your system to record video logs onto DVRs (digital video recorders). DVR size is dependent on the amount of information you want to be able to record, the quality you want that recorded video at and the amount of time you want to save it before recording over it. Many times, damages aren't even noticed until a few weeks after incidents occur. This is when you will want to be certain that your video recordings go back that far.
A cctv installer can install IP cameras to allow you to watch surveillance systems remotely via an internet enabled pc or laptop, or for even more versatility via your smart phone. An FDC consultant will be able to help you choose the right cctv surveillance systems for your security application.
Remember, when choosing surveillance systems to consider
• Video quality and clarity - if you want to be able to identify people, vehicles, etc. - a cctv installer can advise
• Storage space (how long before video is written over) - a cctv installer can advise
• Activation (always recording or only upon motion, etc.)
• Night vision or infrared cameras necessary? - a cctv installer can advise
• How many cameras to efficiently record target - one wide view cannot capture details - a cctv installer can advise
These are the types of things a professional cctv installer will ask you to set up properly working surveillance systems that suit your needs. FDC is a cctv installer for Jacksonville, Miami, Tampa, & Orlando, FL as well as surrounding areas.
Branch offices in Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa, Miami/Ft. Lauderdale and Melbourne allow FDC to provide cctv services Coast to Coast. Ft. Myers to Gainesville, The Florida Keys to West Palm Beach to Tallahassee, FDC is the cctv installer for you!
