Perimeter Security

8 Ways To Increase Your Perimeter Security

The dangers are clear. Financial losses, disruption to your supply chain, harm to consumer confidence, and low staff morale. These are just a few of the negative ways that crime can impact your business. Businesses of all sizes can be affected by a serious incident, regardless of their industry, or their location, which is why steps need to be taken well in advance to offer maximum protection. Perimeter security is the cornerstone of business security, and here we will outline some of the most effective tools on the market.

Access Equipment

Right at the cutting edge of perimeter security lies access control equipment. Utilising tools like cards, fobs, keypads, and even biometric technology like fingerprint readers, you can add real sophistication to your security protocol. Whether using access control to restrict access to specific areas, rooms, or bays, or to enhance existing features such as gates or barriers, this is one of the most tech-savvy ways to guard your business against crime.

Barriers

A simple to use, but super-effective solution, barriers are a great tool in your perimeter security arsenal. Made from aluminium or steel, barriers ensure that you have the final say over who gets access to your site. They can be either manual or automatic, and enhanced with access control, or monitored by your own personnel. Either way, unwanted visitors will know that they won’t find it easy to gain access to your premises.
Bollards

One of the most commonly used and cost-effective tools on the market for vehicular access management, bollards can play an important role in your perimeter security plan. While the idea of a bollard may typically draw to mind a concrete pillar, they have in fact come a long way in recent years and many have advanced designs that make them highly effective and suitable for a range of different purposes. They can deny entry to sites without the need for a gate or barrier, can be used to protect pedestrians or buildings from vehicles, and restrict access during specific hours, Some bollards like the robust Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) bollards are even used to protect sites from terrorist vehicle attacks.

Gates

Gates are, without a doubt, the most impactful form of perimeter protection, and often seen as the foundation of a good security strategy. They send out a clear signal to would-be intruders that their entry and their escape routes are going to be difficult to clear. So when criminals are marking out their next job, your business will be a less than attractive proposition. The types of gates that are typically available include bi-folding, swing, and sliding gates. There are also anti-terrorism gates emerging onto the market which prevent high-impact intrusions from heavy vehicles.

Height Restrictors

Often seen in car parks, height restrictors deal with a different type of crime. Rather than putting up the walls against theft and burglary, height restrictors help businesses to avoid the nuisance of unwanted vehicle access. If a business wants to cut off access to large vehicles, or heavy goods vehicles then this can be a clever fix.

Road Blockers

An uncompromising tool to stop traffic, road blockers can be used for a variety of reasons. One of course is to prevent vehicles from entering specific areas of your site. This might be to protect pedestrians, or buildings, or block off sensitive areas. Equally, road blockers can be used to prevent vehicles from making quick entry and escapes in the event of a burglary. Visually they are a strong deterrent and can be further enhanced with signage, sirens, and traffic lights, and controlled through access control equipment.

Speed Ramps

A reliant, and cost-effective tool, speed ramps are another strong method of controlling traffic. Used to manage speed, and calm traffic, they are a common sight in areas as varied as construction sites through to housing estates and hospitals. Our speed ramps are made from heavy-duty recycled PVC segments and configured with cats-eyes and high-visibility black and yellow sections to provide visual notice.

Turnstiles

Used to control the pedestrian entry and exit of both visitors and employees, there is no denying the impact that turnstiles can have on your perimeter security needs. Not just a way to slow down, and authorise traffic, they can also provide savings for businesses as they remove the need for costly security personnel, especially when fitted with access control tools. Every business has different needs and turnstiles are available to suit. There are waist-height forms available for corporate environments, as well as ¾ and full height versions for more functional settings.

Overhauling your perimeter security is not something that should be taken lightly. While protection is critical, you must seek advice from experts before making your purchase decisions. We can provide you with a free, no-obligation quotation and feasibility survey to remove the guesswork.

School Security

4 Ways To Increase Your School Security

With the school holidays fast creeping up, it’s that time of year again where schools around the UK begin to consider their upgrades and renovations. With children out of the classrooms, this is the perfect time to take a handle on any repairs that might need to be taken care of. However, this is also a great opportunity for schools to review their security protocol and identify weak points in their strategy, creating an award-winning atmosphere that provides peace of mind to both staff and students. Let’s take a look at four concrete ways to improve school security this year.

Undertake a risk assessment

The first step for any organisation in developing a more secure environment is to figure out exactly where they are vulnerable and where they might be exposed. For instance, many businesses, and indeed schools, rely too heavily on CCTV cameras which can be easy to disable or avoid. They can identify a vehicle or a trespasser, but they do not prevent their entry, simply they monitor it.

A risk assessment will take a deep-dive analysis into the potential threats and then look at ways to mitigate that risk comprehensively. Rather than relying on a one-size-fits-all approach that often doesn’t quite cut it.

A risk assessment should be carried out by an experienced and qualified perimeter security company that understands the constraints, considerations, and overall nature of your business. The final result should be a set of suggestions that will protect your school from criminal activity and create a safe learning environment.

Guard against truancy with access control equipment

A common headache for schools lies with their safeguarding responsibilities, and how this can play into truancy. Ensuring students are safe within the walls of their school is pivotal, not only for the well-being of their students but also for the reputation of the establishment. One way that schools can guard against truancy and manage student traffic is through the use of access control equipment. Entry and exit points can be upgraded with tools like intercoms and readers to limit flow during school hours.

Manage parking problems with bollards

Schools up and down the country share a common problem when it comes to parking. Some parents ignore parking-free zones established by schools and pose a hazard to pedestrians. Bollards provide an effective solution in this scenario. Electric bollards can be raised when needed to limit access and lowered when
access is required for staff or contractors. Static bollards can be introduced in areas that require no vehicle access.

Use gates for 24hr safety

A strong security gate is one of the most formidable ways to deter crime. Gates have an important role to play during school hours, preventing both unwanted pedestrian and vehicular traffic. However, they are just as important in the evenings, and out of term time. Schools house expensive equipment and technology and are often not given the same level of security consideration as that of organisations in the private sector. Gates of proper build quality that are robust and maintained well will send out a message to opportunistic criminals that your school takes their security needs seriously.

With school budgets stretched, your school must get the best attention to detail. Here at Gateway Automation, we provide you with a free, no-obligation risk assessment, feasibility survey, and quotation process free of charge. This means you can be sure that you are spending your money only on areas where it can make the biggest impact.

Reasons your business needs gates and barriers

7 Reasons your business needs gates and barriers

Although the onset of the coronavirus saw a significant decrease in crime rates across the UK due to enforced lockdown, there are very few reasons for businesses to take this as a sign of things to come. Indeed businesses should take this time to consider their security protocols and begin to address any shortcomings in good time as restrictions lift and we move closer to the ‘new normal’. Here we will look at some of the benefits of two of our most popular forms of perimeter security: gates and barriers.

1 – Barriers and gates are strong deterrents against crime

Time and time again we hear stories of criminals that have acted on opportunity when committing a crime. A broken fence, unlocked door, insufficient lighting, the list goes on. Having outdated, broken or a complete lack of perimeter security almost guarantees you to be viewed as an easy target by criminal gangs. Barriers and gates are the first port of call for many perimeter security overhauls because they actively send out a message that your business is not going to be easy pickings.

2 – Barriers and gates allow you to control movement

While tools like CCTV are a great way to monitor the flow of traffic and pedestrians throughout your site, they do nothing to act on it. One of the main shortfalls of CCTV is that it simply takes a record of actions. The job of dealing with any issues is left to others. With barriers and gates, you can proactively limit entry to your site. With the use of pin pads, tokens, and fingerprint recognition you can reduce the need for manpower to administer front-of-house duties.

3 – Real-time savings

This brings us to our next reason to invest in gates and barriers. Perimeter security is essentially an investment in your future. These enhancements protect you from the disasters that follow on from a serious crime. Businesses that are victims of serious crimes like theft, burglary, vandalism, and arson can face significant losses in several different ways. The initial impact of stock loss or damage, losses from downtime for your business, and an impact on your customer relationships or reputation are all very real consequences. They can be successfully averted by investing in your security needs before the worst happens.

4 – Curb appeal

Gates and barriers are often the first thing that visitors to your site or passers-by will see. A high-quality installation will provide a level of professionalism to your company brand and reputation and show that you care about the safety of your employees, assets, and visitors.

5 – Privacy

For businesses that operate in sensitive areas or highly competitive fields, privacy is often high on their agendas. Gates and barriers extend your footprint to the far exterior of your property and mean that the only people who can approach your site are those who you have given explicit authorisation to do so.

6 – Restrict vehicular access

Smash and grab type crimes are on the rise. This is when a perpetrator uses a vehicle to approach their target quickly, commits their crime, and then escapes again before the police arrive. By utilising gates and barriers you can effectively shut down the chances of a speedy approach or escape and thwart their plans.

7 – Easy use

Tried and tested by a variety of different companies across industries, barriers and gates are a simple and easy-to-use method of increasing your security levels. Depending on the model you select barriers and gates often require no manpower. Access can be controlled via a variety of different methods including tokens, cards, and pin pads and manual barriers can be left open at the start of the day before being closed at the end of the day.

No matter the size or nature of your businesses, we can provide you with a free, no-obligation quotation and feasibility survey to assess the security requirements of your organization.

How to use physical security for crowd management

How to use physical security for crowd management

Public events and large gatherings of people require a great deal of planning and forethought in order to be successful. Whether managing a music festival, a sporting event, or something entirely different, it is critical that organisers are able to account for the welfare of their guests while taking reasonable security precautions. Not just to ensure a successful event, but also to balance risks and liabilities. Here we will look at how physical security can be used for this purpose.

Creating a crowd management plan

The first port of call in managing crowds and queues is to create a detailed analysis of the risks at your venue or event. This comes from breaking down factors like the type of event, the type of venue, available entry and exit points, traffic management, communications, staffing abilities, and the overall makeup and demographics of the crowd attending or visiting the premises. This will help provide you with an overview of your needs when it comes to perimeter security and what help is needed. The next step is to discuss with an experienced provider some of the options available to you. Let’s take a look at some of the popular choices for crowd control and queue management that might be recommended.

Choosing physical security tools

While manned personnel can play an important role in the management of large groups of people, offering them instruction, monitoring threats, and dealing with any issues, there are physical tools that should always be considered.

Turnstiles

Turnstiles offer a robust and effective solution to managing the entry and exit of large numbers of pedestrians and can slow down traffic to a manageable level. Turnstiles effectively limit the number of people who can enter at any one time, avoiding a dangerous build-up or rush of people through entry or exit points.
Turnstiles are designed to only let one or two persons enter at any one time and depending on the type of business or event can be enhanced with a range of different access control methods such as manual entry, token or ticket entry, pin pads, and more. Another key benefit of turnstiles is the ability to prevent tailgating where one person quickly enters behind another.

In terms of aesthetics, waist-height variations of turnstiles have a sleeker, more corporate look, while full-height, 3 / 4 height, and full height combi turnstiles are more suited to sporting or arena-based events.

Gates, bollards, and blockers

Another important tool can come in the form of pedestrian gates. They serve a dual purpose in that they can be used to manage pedestrian traffic, but also used alongside turnstiles as a separate means of access for crew and staff during an event.

Pedestrian traffic should not be the only concern with crowd management. For specific venues and events, there are times when vehicular access also needs to be carefully managed. This might be to ensure that only staff and contractors are allowed entry to an area such as a car park, or it may be that members of the public or customers are required to have their credentials or passes checked prior to entry. There are several tools that can be used in these scenarios such as automatic barriers, road blockers, and bollards.

Safe gates

The Importance of Safe Gates

One of the most obvious tools in perimeter security is a security gate. Robust, effective, and able to send out a clear message to opportunistic criminals – security gates are often the first port of call for businesses looking to ramp up their security measures. Here, we discuss the importance of safe gates.

An overview of security gates

Security gates can solve many problems for businesses. They help to prevent unwelcome visitors and act as a barrier to unwanted car parking. They can provide you with a way to facilitate and register traffic from visitors to your site.

However, like anything in life, security gates require a little upkeep and maintenance to keep them in prime condition. And a security gate that is outdated or faulty is of no use at all.

Faulty gates present a very real danger to human life and a gate that is not given due care and attention can be very dangerous. Both automatic and manual gates have been the cause of serious accidents, and later legal disputes.

The importance of safe gates

Gateway Automation is proud to be accredited as ‘Gate Safe Aware’ by IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health) and Gate Safe.

Gate Safe is a registered charity that started in 2010 following the tragic deaths of two children who lost their lives in tragic events involving automated gates.
Gate Safe calls for stronger industry regulations and work with manufacturers to underline both the importance of safe installation and frequent maintenance. They recommend that safety checks are carried out every 6-12 months and more frequently on sites with heavy traffic.

The accreditation is given only to installers who have undergone specific training demonstrating that they can responsibly install gates.

What businesses should know

The burden of care lies not only with the installer of security gates but also with the businesses themselves. A company that has failed to utilise quality gates and properly maintain them will be looked on poorly by the courts, which is why it is critical to maintaining their safe operation.

Common examples of security gate issues over time include gates coming off their runners and hinges failing due to a buildup of dirt or grime. While you might be able to counter some of the causes of hinge failure through your cleaning maintenance, more technical issues may need to be addressed by an experienced technician.

These issues should not be seen as a reason to avoid security gates. Security gates are a formidable tool in protecting businesses from crime and nuisance in the modern age. However, gates must be installed and maintained in a responsible fashion. This can avoid devastating injuries, fines, and damage to your reputation.

Whether your business runs from small retail premises or a large industrial site, Gateway Automation can help. We provide you with a free, no-obligation quotation and feasibility survey to assess your perimeter security equipment. We also offer a nationwide reactive call-out service to deal with any equipment issues and are proud to be Gate Safe accredited. Please contact us on 01522 682255 for more information

barriers

How to decide which barriers are best for your business

When it comes to site security, many business owners think of gates, fences, CCTV, and security personnel. However, one of the less obvious, but nonetheless commonly used forms of perimeter security are barriers.

Easy to understand and incredibly useful, barriers are increasingly utilised by those in the know. As their name suggests they act as a strong defence against unwanted intruders, and ultimately provide you with the keys to the castle. Allowing you to decide who can and cannot get entry to your property. If you are interested in installing barriers at your site though, there are a few things you should know first. There are a variety of different options to choose from which will we run through today.

The benefits of barriers

Regardless of whether your premises is a business or a residential site, barriers are commonplace around the UK. Used properly, and installed with care, they are a perfect solution to managing entry to your site. They can be used as a manual tool operated by security staff, or automatic and controlled with keys, codes, or fobs. But with so much variety on offer – which barrier should you choose for your business?

Manual barriers

Manual barriers are one of the more cost-effective types of barriers available on the market. Typically used in rural or isolated settings, manual barriers are operated by hand. However, they are also a good choice when manned security is preferred for operation. They might be used to stop traffic and check the visitors’ credentials before providing them access. Manual barriers are perfect if your site is located away from the grid and electricity is not available to power an automatic barrier. You can also lock them into position, so if you wanted to leave access shut off during the evenings, or open all day then you could.

Automatic barriers

A sophisticated solution, automatic barriers are used in a variety of settings and require electricity to operate. You might use automatic barriers on staff car parks, or at the entrance to a particular area of a site. With automatic barriers, the options for gaining access are almost endless. Depending on your needs you can provide entry via manned guards, CCTV for visual confirmation, pushbuttons, cards, tokens, or even fingerprint recognition.

Height restrictor barriers

Height restriction barriers can be found in a variety of sites from construction and garages to car parks. Their main goal is to block access for heavy vehicles and are often utilised in public car parks where overstays and unauthorised long-term have become an issue. Similar to manual barriers, they are a cost-effective solution and do not require electricity or manned guarding.

Guide your decision with a professional risk assessment

When it comes to deciding which barrier to choose for your property, it is important to take professional advice. Numerous factors need to be considered including but not limited to: available space, the type of business, cost, level of security threats. Every business is different and all of these factors should be taken into account. With a professional risk assessment, we can take a forensic look at your business needs, and requirements to help you make an informed decision and start you on the path to a more secure future.

How to prevent intruders on your property

How to prevent intrudersOne of the biggest headaches that property owners face is that of trespass. Trespassers and unwanted visitors can in a short amount of time create both temporary and permanent damage to your property that can leave you stressed and out of pocket. Whether through criminal damage, littering, or arson, there are many reasons to be fearful of trespass damage, and even more reasons to take pre-emptive action, as we will discuss here.

Vandalism

One of the most common annoyances that occurs as a result of trespass is vandalism. While many people picture youths with spray paint cans in hand, vandalism isn’t only restricted to graffiti. It also includes things like smashed windows or doors, slight structural damage, and fly-tipping. Vandals do not want to be caught in the act and will look for quick entry and exit points. You can slow down that process through good perimeter security choices.

Urban exploration

Increasingly, a new type of trespass has come to the fore, spurred on by the internet and enthusiastic photographers. Urban exploration is the act of visiting typically old, ‘abandoned’ buildings to take photographs and share your findings online.

While hobbyists may have the best of intentions, the result can wreak havoc for the owners of these buildings. Property can be damaged as explorers seek to gain access and make their way around a property, and the owners left to foot the bill. What’s more urban explorers might also be risking their health as buildings may be unsafe, containing hazardous materials like asbestos, or unsafe structures that could result in injury or even death.

While the law frowns upon urban exploration, there are risks for owners too. Under the Defective Premises Act and the Occupiers Liability Act they may be liable for any injuries that trespassers encounter whilst on their property. This is why it is critical to take pre-emptive measures to prevent access.

Arson

Arson is another undoubtedly serious threat to vacant and occupied buildings. Even the smallest of fires can spread rapidly and leave behind tremendous damage. Many arsonists plan out their attacks in advance and hope to be able to get away quickly from a scene, which is why it is important to showcase strong deterrents.

General trespass

Some types of intrusion or trespass are not motivated by criminal means but can be equally disruptive. Intruders on your premises or land may make use of your amenities without paying, leave behind rubbish, and cause damage to property through their presence. While there are legal routes to deal with unwanted visitors, it is much smarter to lock down your site with preventative measures.

Key actions to take to prevent intruders

A core fundamental of perimeter security is securing entry and exit points for premises. Gates need to be robust and too tall to climb, and fences resistant to simple cutting tools. There also needs to be sufficient thought given to gaps, which might be secured with wire, where appropriate.

Fences and gates

Fences, gates, and foliage can also act as a visual barrier to prevent criminals and trespassers. These measures will prevent trespassers from understanding how a site operates. Meaning any weaknesses that they might be able to exploit will not be easily discovered.

CCTV

Buildings should be well lit as it is critical for the work of CCTV cameras. It also acts as a deterrent for trespassers who might not want to be seen by passers-by. A risk assessment can help you identify which areas of your site might need additional lighting.

While it is good practice to have CCTV systems in place, they are not necessarily going to prevent an intrusion from taking place. If authorities are not able to respond quickly, and a criminal is disguised then the CCTV only serves to document a crime.

Gates, Bollards and Barriers

Tools like security gates, bollards, and barriers can be much more effective in restricting access, to begin with. You can also use access control equipment with turnstiles and barriers, enhanced with keypads, proximity cards, or intercoms to further reduce access once inside a building.

Vehicular access

Vehicular access should be considered in any risk assessment too. You can disrupt their efforts through the use of barriers and bollards, but also tools like road blockers and automatic rising kerbs.

The Importance of Perimeter Security at Ports

Perimeter security at portsThe UK’s port industry is internationally significant. The second-largest in Europe, it handles over 500 million tonnes of freight each year and employs around over 100,000 people. Moving food, energy, raw materials and goods, the UK’s 120 ports are – without a doubt – vital to the infrastructure and economy of Great Britain in the 21st Century. However, despite the critical importance of our commercial ports, they are traditionally have been a high-prize target for criminal enterprises. We discuss the importance of perimeter security at ports.

The fundamental importance of ports has made them a target for Terrorist activities from organisations seeking to cause maximum disruption to the nation by affecting vital supplies, and danger is also present for sea bearing vessels in the form of modern-day piracy.

The need for strong perimeter defences

The first place that port operators should look at when it comes to creating a robust and comprehensive security system and seeing off these threats is perimeter security. By installing strong perimeter defences, they can effectively seal off their ports from unauthorised visitors and deter criminal activity in their tracks.

Risk assessments

While commercial ports across the world share many things in common, they are all unique in their cultures, and operations, and thus require a bespoke approach to security. This is why any security reviews must begin with a 360-degree risk assessment to understand the potential strengths and weaknesses of a site and underline any key changes that need to be made to protect the maritime supply chain. In a nutshell, what may work for one port, may not be suitable for another.

Key perimeter security methods

Recommendations from a risk assessment may include a combination of solutions, such as heavy-duty gates, bollards, barriers and rising kerbs. It might also include high-tech options like access control.

Reduce pedestrian access

Pedestrian access can be limited through tools such as keypads, biometrics and fobs, while vehicle traffic can be controlled through automatic barriers, bollards and rising kerbs that ensure traffic can only go in the specified directions.
In the case of vessels, access control equipment can be effective in restricting access to key areas, blocking off important assets, and keeping accurate records of who is visiting specific places.

Gateway Automation provides a range of perimeter security systems to help businesses and individuals to secure their site. They also provide nationwide servicing and repairs to gates, barriers, and other perimeter security equipment.

How Businesses can help reduce the risk of burglary

BurglarNo matter the size or scale of your operations, burglary can have disastrous consequences for a business. From cash and asset losses through to negative press articles and the impact on employees caught up in the event, the fallout can be massive.

It is, however, worth remembering that the vast majority of burglaries are opportunistic in nature. Time and time again, police forces up and down the UK have warned that criminals hunt for easy prey. Businesses which fail to pay attention to perimeter security are high targets for criminals and gangs. Let’s take a look at some of the simple ways to help reduce the risk of burglary.

Risk assessments

In the same way that you would likely leave your home boiler repair to the gasman, your perimeter security should be handled by an expert. Every business is different and has their own unique operational and security-focused needs that need to be balanced when choosing perimeter security tools. A risk assessment will take into account the nature of your business when deciding which tools are going to be used.

Gates and barriers

Gates and barriers send a strong message out to opportunistic criminals. From the moment they first come across your property they will see that security is high on your agenda and that entry will be difficult. If entry is difficult then an escape will likely also be hard, effectively removing your business from their sights.

Access Control Equipment

One of the best ways to prevent a burglary is to think carefully about the layout of your site, and the location of valuable assets. Storing valuable items or data in specific locations can be a great way to prevent unauthorised access. Entry can be controlled with cards, fobs, keypads, or even cutting-edge biometric technology such as fingerprint readers.

Alarms and security systems

Tools such as CCTV and alarms can detect motion around your business and be used to alert the authorities. They play a role in protecting your business, but should simply augment other factors of your perimeter security. CCTV may record criminal activity but they do not prevent the incident from happening in the first place.

Lighting

Criminals do not want to be seen and identified. While you may think that lights may draw attention to your business, they can actually do the opposite. Adequate lighting not only increases your chances of a bypasser witnessing an incident but also helps other tools like CCTV to capture the likeness of an intruder. Don’t forget to regularly change bulbs that have been broken or otherwise damaged.

Control Vehicle and Pedestrian Access

Another key point to consider is how you manage access both on foot and in vehicles. Pedestrian traffic can be monitored and controlled by turnstiles. These turnstiles might be manned or unmanned with keypads, fobs, or fingerprint scanners. But they are a hurdle for criminals to overcome both before and after a crime.

Equally, vehicular access needs to be considered carefully. In recent years there has been an increased number of burglaries committed with the use of vehicles. Heavy-duty vehicles can be used to effectively ram their way into buildings and escape with valuable goods. To combat this you can install gates, bollards, rising kerbs, flow control plates and road blockers . All of which can be helpful in cutting off access to road vehicles.
