Gate Security

Gate Securitygate security

Today we’ll be talking about maximizing gate security.  Our gates are our first line of defense against intruders or unwelcome guests.  While a gate is a terrific vehicle deterrent, sometimes communities or businesses want a little bit more.


V-track slide gates are by far the best gate style to maximize gate security.  They roll swiftly across the track to lock into place on the other side of the entrance, and are very difficult to lift.  If you have concerns about swing gates getting pushed open, the V-track gate system is what you want.

Camera Systems

Gate security can be beefed even more with a CCTV set up.  Closed circuit television allows you to tie multiple cameras back to a main security gate house or monitoring room, and recording devices such as DVR’s allow you to save as much of that footage as you would like.  This comes in handy to identify intruders as well as residents who collide with gate equipment.  This footage is also useful to provide during insurance claims.
Anti-Reach Gates
Pedestrian and pool gates are often considered a vulnerability as people can reach over or through them to unlock and gain access.  FDC pedestrian gates often contain anti-reach elements to prevent this from happening, such as wire mesh panels, ornamental plates, and other creative options.


Finally, the SecuraSwing gate closer is the last element we will discuss in our mission to maximize gate security.  This device is a hydraulic closer that attaches to the bottom of an existing gate, or better yet can be built into a brand new StrongWeld pedestrian gate.  This device closes gates behind forgetful or pre-occupied softly and securely, every time.
