Schools Should Have An Automatic Gate System For These 5 Reasons

schools-should-have-an-automatic-gate-system-for-these-5-reasonsIt goes without saying that every school should be as safe and secure as possible. There are many methods with which this can be achieved, from CCTV to a team of security guards, but one of the simplest yet most effective security measures is an automatic gate system.

Why? Read below to find out:

1. Deterrence

The sight of a robust automatic gate at the entrance of a school is always going to deter unwanted visitors. After all, an automatic gate system means there are security measures already in place, acting as a very strong deterrent for any would-be intruders, vandals, or unwanted visitors.

2. Cost-Effective

An automatic gate system is one of the most affordable security measures available to schools. They require only an initial outlay for installation, after which they are completely autonomous. This may save a lot of money for a school’s budget, as not all can afford costlier security measures, such as a team of armed guards.

3. Safety

It’s an obvious advantage of using an automatic gate system yet one still worth mentioning – gates make a school safer.

As the gate restricts control into the school, unwanted visitors never need to be permitted access, while those attempting to break or sneak in will not find much success with a robust gate system in place.

Furthermore, a gate system offers better protection against vandalism. This can be particularly beneficial for high schools that have a higher number of vehicles parking on the premises throughout the day.

4. Visitor Control

Schools see a high number of visitors daily, including staff, students, and parents. As a result, many people are coming and going on any given day, which often poses a security risk when there is a lack of control over who comes and goes.

With an automatic gate, the school may permit or deny entry to whoever they wish. Those that want entry need to be authorized before they receive it, helping to prevent unwanted visits. This can be especially effective when used together with security guards, CCTV, etc.

5. Aesthetics

Automatic gates have a stylish look to them, typically featuring ornate ironwork and other fine craftsmanship. Better still, an automatic gate system can come in many different styles to create an aesthetic of your choosing.

Whether it’s a stylish addition to improve the exterior of the school or a more foreboding design to deter unwanted visitors, gates can greatly enhance the aesthetic of a school’s grounds

I have to say that the service at Superior Gate Services was fantastic. Cindy first took my call and was super helpful and friendly.  We just bought a home that has an electric gate and we wanted it repaired and serviced.  She managed to get us into a slot the next day and called that next morning to give us a time range. Great follow-up! Our technician Sean (I hope I remembered his name correctly) was awesome and went through the repairs,  and gave several operating and home maintenance tips to my husband.  This company aims to please on all counts and delivers !!  We will be using them again and would definitely recommend them.

I got a quote the same afternoon I inquired, had the gate installed within a week, and Scott and his crew have always gone above and beyond to help out, even reconnecting my garage wires that the dog ripped out when they were just quoting me on the gate. If I've ever had any trouble, they go out of their way to come out promptly and help in anyway they can... Obviously without ever charging me for a visit. Highly recommend!!

Nothing but positive things to say about this company. I had called them last week first when my automatic gate stopped working but then remembered that I had a home warranty so told them never mind but then it ended up not being covered. So I emailed them back and they called me the next business day and came over within an hour! Scott came out and told me it just needed some tuning up and the actual opener was in good shape and one of the best ones. So he did a tune up and he helped me change the code for my gate opener!

Called these guys off their positive yelp reviews after getting the run around from another contractor. They took my first service call and responded quickly and took care of the problem and worked around my schedule. Since that first call uv had two other properties needing their services and just like the first call no hassles. Show up take care of it and reasonable prices. They don't hit you with extras like some others do they fix the problem and then they do a full tune up and cleaning on the gate at the same time. My other contractor would charge extra to do the tune up. That's dumb. Just make it happen. That's what they do. They just make it happen without taking you to the bank. Thanks superior for being on the team, your a great asset.
