Automatic Gate Operators – Access Control Accessories
Security gates for residential and commercial applications all require access control devices to allow authorized vehicles to pass through. Linear gate operators for swinging, sliding, and barrier gates can use a wide range of access controls from various manufacturers, making it easy to find ideal control solutions. At our discount fence supply store, our experienced representatives can assist you in finding the products you need for your residential, commercial or industrial gates. Your decisions on what method of access control you need should be based on convenience, security, and the needs of those who will access your facility. Your choices are broad, and include the following types of control equipment:
- Radio Controls – Everyone is familiar with the typical radio controls for vehicle security and garage door openers. Just push a button on a convenient key fob or other device and you have access. A wide range of radio transmitters and receivers are available for your Linear gate opening and closing systems. These include short-range and long-range solutions. Radio controls are best suited for regular users, who are issued transmitters coded for your facility’s gates. They are also popular for private residential gate operation.
- Keypad Access – Commonly used at storage facilities, parking facilities, and other facilities where a regular group of visitors needs access, these access controls are normally installed at vehicle window level, allowing drivers to enter a code on a keypad for access. Access codes can be changed at any time, and combination keypad-radio control receivers are also available.
- Card Control Access – Popular for employee and resident access in a wide range of settings, these control systems operate with the swipe of a card. They are simple to operate and familiar to most people, making them a simple method wherever a group of people of any size requires access.
- Token Acceptor Access Controls – This technology has specific applications where distribution of tokens is a desirable way to control access. Parking lots and ramps, along with other facilities can use this access method effectively through token sales or other distribution methods.
- Push-Button Devices – Push-button controls are the simplest, and most foolproof method. Available for interior or exterior installation, they allow gate opening and closing with just the push of a button. They are popular as exit controls and where a human operator handles authorized access verification before entry into a facility.
- Key-Operated Gate Controls – Simple and secure, exterior-mounted key operated controls are a popular solution for employee and vendor access to industrial and remote facilities. As many keys as needed may be issued to authorized personnel.
- Intercom and Telephone Access Controls – Where gates are located far from a facility, these control systems allow entrants to communicate with security personnel inside the facility, who can remotely open the gate. These systems can also include alternative entry methods, using keypads, radio controls and other methods. A wide range of options, including scheduling, computerized networking and more can be accommodated with some of these devices.
- Emergency Opening Devices – Siren-operated sensors may be required by fire codes in some jurisdictions. These can be used in conjunction with other access control systems to allow emergency responders fast access to a facility in emergency situations. When combined with a loop vehicle detector, the gate will remain closed unless a vehicle with a siren is over the loop, to prevent opening by passing vehicles sounding a siren.
