Since electric gates operate slowly, they are susceptible to “tailgating” threats, in which a person,vehicle or a truck sneaks in behind an authorized user. If security is a concern, a video surveillance camera should be installed.
Electric gates alone, however solid and imposing they may be, cannot guarantee a completely secure environment electric locks, are often needed to boost the locking effectiveness of the gate motors. Electric gates are recommended to be used in combination with other security features to install a full security system. A few of these features are closed circuits with security cameras, additional gates in conjunction with the main gate, electronic keycards and keypads, security guards.
Aside from the additional security features that should go with parking barrier gates, electric security gates often offer safety features like sensors that determine when there
is an obstruction to prevent the electronic gate from swinging into a vehicle,truck or closing on somebody’s hands.
