Advantages of automatic traffic barriers

We understand the importance of good access solutions for commercial applications, particularly those with heavy traffic flow. Check out some of the advantages of having an automatic vehicle barrier installed and contact our team today to find out more.


From a traffic control point of view, automatic barriers can provide benefits that manual barriers cannot. They can be implemented with optional accessories, such as an ANPR to control traffic flow easily without the need for manual support. This makes traffic barriers useful for businesses that have employees and visitors coming in and out of their premises daily.


The main advantage of automatic traffic barriers over their manual counterparts is the flexibility they offer as they can be programmed and utilised in a number of different ways. Aside from car parks, traffic barriers can be extremely effective when it comes to securing business premises during the day and out of hours. Private landowners with longer pathways up to their properties may also benefit from traffic barriers, as an added level of security. Automatic security barriers can be easily implemented with additional systems as they require no manual input, making them ideal for modern businesses who have a smaller number of staff or lack the capability to employ someone to manually open, close and secure the barrier.

Automatic traffic barriers are more difficult for criminals to bypass. Barrier systems can be customised to meet the individual needs of a business with additions such as magnetic locking systems, LED’s, tip support rests and safety sensing edges, amongst others. It is common for barriers to be equipped with security code access, remote control entry and voice intercoms. Automatic barriers provide 24hr security, even if there is no one working on site.

Why do businesses need automatic traffic barriers?

Business's top priority should be the safety of their employees, clients, and their premises, and an automatic traffic barrier system is one of the best solutions. Although, you may also need to invest in a commercial gate, or something else to help you minimise the risk of trespassers and criminals.
Stopping unwanted visitors from entering your premises and being on your site is crucial for any business. Poorly managed car parks and other commercial sites need to be secure, otherwise, this can be detrimental to your business reputation and the safety of your occupants. 

Arson is one of the biggest causes of fire in the workplace, so you want to be able to keep such crimes at bay. Installing a car park barrier entry system will restrict access to authorised people only. Depending on the system, you’ll be able to see who is parked on site and stop and identify those who attempt to gain access without authorisation.
