Benefits of Installing Electronic Barriers and Bollards

Electronic security barriers installed in car parks, business sites or private driveways can provide a wide range of benefits, controlling the movement of vehicles through the space and preventing unwanted trespassers from accessing the immediate area. Automatic barrier systems or bollards can be controlled with access codes or passes, which ensures that only verified employees or residents can enter.

There are also several health and safety considerations:

  • Barriers prevent parking spaces from becoming overfilled, ensure that evacuation routes and emergency services access remain clear, and avoid unmanageable numbers of vehicles from trying to navigate a limited parking zone.
  • Bollards are impassable by vehicles and remove the potential for unauthorised people to enter your property, adding to the safety of personnel, tradespeople and contractors working on site.
  • Installing a set of barriers or bollards eliminates the potential for through traffic, which can support pedestrian safety, avoid excessive traffic levels, and create a safer zone with fewer possible hazards.

A set of barriers or bollards installed at strategic entry points is a proactive way to reduce the risk of unlawful entry and creates a safer operational environment with full control over which vehicles can enter and at what time.

Keeping your electric gates maintained

Failure to properly service a gate may result in sudden malfunctions, hindering the entry or exit of vehicles from a site. In more serious situations, a malfunctioning electric gate poses a safety risk to drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. Clearway offers dependable and scheduled maintenance for electric gates, barriers, and bollards to guarantee their optimal functionality and safety features. We also offer access control maintenance services for all access management operations.

  • Wireless Intruder Alarms: wireless alarm systems are ideal for large-scale sites, vacant or empty properties, or construction projects that either do not have a mains power supply or need a tamper-proof security system with rapid response alerts.
  • Intruder Detection Systems: intruder detection allows property managers to identify immediately when an intrusion occurs or is attempted, with a wide range of cost-effective solutions and market-leading signalling equipment.
  • Commercial Access Control Systems: Clearway’s commercial access control systems offer outstanding security solutions for organisations that need to maintain the security of their premises without relying on manned security.

Frequently asked questions

It is unlikely that you will require planning permission to fit a set of security bollards or automatic barrier systems if the site is private land, such as a business premise.

The only scenario where you will usually need approval is if you wish to install bollards in a public space.

Please get in touch with Clearway if you would like more advice about fitting bollards in a zone where you believe planning permission may apply

Our barriers can be manually or automatically operated, depending on your requirements. An automatic barrier can be integrated with existing access controls or configured with ANPR technology (automatic number plate recognition).

In this case, the barrier will lift when it detects a number plate stored in your approved vehicle database. You can regularly update the database if you are expecting a delivery or have an anticipated visitor.
