The use for security gates is growing, as is evident nearly everywhere from apartment buildings to self-storage facilities. Security gates are able to give not only a feeling of safety, but also a peace of mind for owners and renters alike.
When considering installing a gate, you should keep a few factors in mind.
First you want to make sure that the gate does not cause a backup in traffic on a road leading in. For this reason, it is best to allow for a driveway of 40 or 50 feet before reaching the gate.
If there is an office on site, you may choose to have tenants and prospective tenants the ability to park outside the perimeter of the main gate and reach the front door of the office, perhaps through a smaller gate designed for foot traffic so it may be locked before and after business hours.
In order to verify those who are driving through the security gate, make passageway wide enough for one vehicle to comfortably drive through at a time.
If possible, avoid having the tenants turn through a gate.
There are times when a tenant finds himself locked in, so be prepared to deal with such situations. This may be cause by power outages from storms, for instance. Be sure to have a posted message with emergency phone numbers that are monitored day and night for such instances.
