electric gate

Electric gate kits are a worthy investment for any commercial business. Whether you’re looking to add some extra security by incorporating access equipment, or you’re looking to add a bit of value to your premises before selling, electric gate automation can really benefit your commercial business.

Here at Gate Auto, we’ve been market-leading providers of electric gate automation for over 30 years, and throughout that time we’ve been providing our customers with a variety of electric gate kits and garage door openers across a wide range of environments, both commercial and domestic. So, if you run a commercial business and you’re wondering whether or not it’s worth installing a pair of electric gate kits, here are a few reasons to consider.

Protect your staff

Security for your staff and your vehicles is probably high up on your list of priorities if you’re running a commercial business, so you’ll want your vehicles and personnel to be as completely safe when they’re on your premises. That’s where our gate kits can help!

Improve the experience of staff and visitors – electric gates allow your staff and any visitors to feel more secure, which in turn promotes a more at-ease working environment. As an added bonus, electric gates will help to bring a sense of gravitas and professionalism to your premises, and increase value of your site if you ever decide to sell it.

Tracked entry – coupling automatic gates with a security guard allows you to know exactly how many people there are on your premises at any given time. If an emergency occurs (like a fire for example), you know exactly how many people you need to account for when evacuating.

Crime prevention – restricting unauthorised access to certain areas of your business can reduce the occurrence of common crimes like theft or vandalism. Crucially, these crimes are not always committed by intruders, as thefts can sometimes be committed by people inside an organisation too.

Increase the value of your business

Some estimates stated that the presence of an electric gate can add up to 5% to the value of your business. That means (for example) that a business worth £400,000 would gain an extra £20,000 in valuation from the installation of an electric gate. So, if you’re planning to sell up and move on to something new, then an electric gate kit will allow you to add a bit more money to your asking price.

So, those are the main reasons why it’s definitely worth adding some electric gates to your commercial business if you’re interested in purchasing an electric gate for your business, but you’re not sure which kind would best suit you, then check out our blog on what type of electric gates should I choose for my business?
