Driveway Security

Driveway security is essential, particularly if you have expensive vehicles parked outside your property.

Easy targets

If your driveway is open and vehicles are parked, thieves may well target your property and attempt to steal parked vehicles. Installing security bollards to protect your driveway prevents your vehicles from becoming easy targets.  Protecting your driveway and preventing you from being targeted does not need to be expensive. In comparison to the cost of your vehicles and the disruption which a potential theft may cause, security measures are a small price to pay.

Gates vs bollards

If you want to completely stop both vehicles and pedestrians from accessing your driveway. And also stop animals or children from running out into the road. The best security solution would be an automated gate. If you prefer to still keep your driveway accessible for visitors such as the postman or the milkman or guests in general, a pedestrian-friendly solution would be advisable such as security bollards.

Automatic bollards

Security bollards can be fully automated if needed. These operate very simply by using a key fob to raise and lower the products. Alternatively, if you don’t need the products to be automated and are perfectly happy lifting and lowering security bollards into place, fully retractable or lift out bollards may be all you need. If you think a gate would be a better option or you would like a bit more advice. Give us a call and we can help over the phone.

Installation

Installation of security bollards and gates is straight forward. This can be done by a local builder or a certified installer. If you need help finding one we can provide you with the details of an installer in your region.

Parking Space Protection

If your vehicle is kept in a specific parking space and you don’t have control over the surrounding area, you may need to protect your individual parking spot.

Installing a bollard

Installing a security bollard outside your allocated parking spot could protect your vehicle from the risk of being stolen and prevent other drivers from parking in your space. This could be particularly necessary if you rent your parking space to other people.

Removable bollards

Removable security bollards require a foundation depth of around 500mm. This type of product is ideal if you have somewhere to store a security bollard. Excavation is minimal and product maintenance is very straight forward. If multiple people need access to the same security bollard, extra keys can be provided. This bollard is the only option for sites with a high water table.

Telescopic bollards

If excavation depth is not a restriction, telescopic security bollards are a more practical solution. Retracting completely into the ground when not in use, a metal lid covers the ground casing protecting both the security bollard and also providing a flat surface for cars and pedestrians to move across safely. Telescopic security bollards are very easy to operate and also maintain.

Garage Security

Whatever you use the space for, we want to make sure that whatever is behind your garage door, is kept safe at all times.

Why you should secure your garage

Garages can be used for a variety of things. Perhaps you keep a classic car, a motor home or even a motorbike hidden away for bright days. Maybe you are a keen gardener and use the space to store expensive tools and machinery. Or perhaps you even house a workshop within the confines of your garage.

Installing security bollards

In addition to a garage lock, it is possible to install security bollards directly outside the door. This adds an extra layer of security. If thieves do manage to break the lock on your garage door. They still can’t open the door to steal anything. A traditional overhead opening door would not be able to be opened.

Protection against potential theft

If the door opens inwards then thieves may be able to break in. No vehicles would be able to be removed however if security bollards were blocking access in and out of the garage space. Depending on your objective, security-bollards can add an additional layer of security. Bollards are very easy to install and maintain. All products come with full fitting instructions and service tips.

Bollards for Garage Security

As mentioned previously, bollards can have 2 main functions when protecting a garage. Whether that be stopping an “up and over” garage door from being opened or stopping any vehicles from being removed from a garage. We have bollards for both scenarios, the most accessible and easy to use product would be an automatic driveway bollard, alternatively, you could use a telescopic bollard or removable bollard. However, both of these solutions will have to be manually moved, removed.

Controlling Access to Private Lanes

If you have a long access lane to your property or even a large communal lane leading to a cluster of properties, stop unwanted vehicles from accessing this space.

Controlling Access to Private Lanes

Common problems

Do you have a problem with people using your private lane? This could be lost drivers using the area to turn. Or a problem with people parking and then causing anti-social behaviours such as theft or vandalism.

Restricting access

It is possible to restrict or police access to the area by installing a gate, an arm barrier or security bollards. The type of product suitable depends on how many times a day authorised drivers will need to gain access to the area.

Picking the right solution

If the access lane sees high volumes of traffic, an arm barrier or a set of automatic bollards may be advisable. If access is very irregular and there are only a handful of people needing to move in and out of the lane. Retractable security-bollards or a gate may suffice.

Controlling who can use the lane

All drivers needing access to the area can have the same key or key fob. These can easily be replaced if any have been lost.
