Private Business Security Solutions

When protecting your business it’s important to have the right security solutions in place.

Whether you’re looking to control access to your building or want to secure an industrial site, it’s important that you pick the right security design.

We have both the experience in securing these kinds of sites and a wide range of solutions designed for vehicle access control and industrial security.

Warehouse & Industrial Unit Protection

When protecting a high-value warehouse or industrial unit, there are some key points that you need to consider in order to design an appropriate security design.

Warehouse & Industrial Unit Protection

Access points

Firstly you need to work out how many vehicle entry and exits points there are to your industrial site. Once you have established how many entrances and exits need to be secured, the rate of traffic flow through these access points need to be assessed. For high traffic flow, a product needs to be chosen to withstand multiple operations each hour.

Removable bollards

For access points within minimal traffic flow, you may be able to install telescopic or removable security bollards to meet your security objectives.

Staff and visitor safety

Thirdly the type of visitor attending your site needs to be thought about. Staff may be treated differently to general visitors, security checks or procedures may differ. Pedestrian safety must be considered if traffic volume is high. Segregated areas may need to be made for pedestrians to move safely within areas of high traffic flow to avoid accidents.

Type of vehicle

Finally, the type of vehicle accessing the site is also important. Motorcycles can drive straight through an array of bollards but won’t be able to pass through a rising arm barrier.

Vehicle Access Control

Controlling vehicles travelling in and out of an area can be achieved using a variety of methods. Which method you choose depends on the level of traffic flow and how secure you need the area to be.

Traffic flow

First, you will need to look at all available entry and exit points on your site. Differentiate between the areas with the highest traffic flow per hour and the lowest. The areas with a high traffic flow will need securing with products able to cope with considerable duty cycles such as an automatic rising arm barrier or a bollard system designed to control traffic flow.

Telescopic bollards

Areas with minimal traffic flow may only require securing with telescopic security bollards. Which can be lowered in the morning and then raised again in the evening when the site closes.

Employee access

Thought needs to be paid to the type of visitor wanting to access the site. Employees arriving in the morning may need to be treated differently to unknown visitors approaching throughout the day.

Picking the right solution

Depending on the access control objective, there is the physical barrier which needs to be selected; i.e. whether you require high security bollards or rising arm barriers and then the control system. This system is the brains behind the product and has the ability to control barriers as required. Systems can be accessed using an identity card, ANPR or a keypad system. The options are almost endless.

Head Office Security

Head offices are home to thousands of employees representing big corporations each day. Large corporations can be used as political and terrorist targets.

Protecting employees and visitors

Corporations have a duty of care to their employees and visitors. To protect your infrastructure assets from the threat of a terrorist attack is straight forward yet vital. Depending on what type of site and what kind of vehicle and pedestrian access you require, a security design can be agreed on.

Accessibility

Fixed or shallow mounted bollards are ideal for pedestrian permeability, ensuring that your head office is accessible to the general public, visitors and employees. Automatic barriers and bollards can be installed to police vehicles coming in and out of service areas or restricted car parks.

Shallow mount bollards

Shallow foundation products are ideal if your head office is in an urban area. To install traditional depth products may not be feasible due to a network of services and fibre optic cables within the site you are trying to excavate.

Cost-effective options

Shallow foundation products require as little foundation depth as 112 mm. These products avoid the costly redirection of services without compromising on the end security.
