Mole Business Park
Leatherhead, Surrey

The brief was to control and monitor vehicle entry through multiple access points into this up-to- the-minute, high-tech business park in a vulnerable location.

We responded with a conventional traffic barrier solution. Three entrance points are equipped with rising arm barriers triggered for entry through proximity readers and intercom all monitored by CCTV from a control room. Underground loop vehicle detectors are fitted for exit to allow rapid egress at peak times. Barriers and control equipment are fi nished in the client's corporate colours.

The equipment is regularly maintained and despite the complexity of this system no problems have been experienced in the ten years since installation. Prudent security has prevented any incidence of crime or vehicle damage. The equipment is regularly maintained.

To ensure maximum security and control of vehicle movements on two sites, we were consulted to design and install two 5 metre wide cantilever gates and one 7 metre wide cantilever gate.

Each gate is operated by a powerful 3 phase motor incorporating appropriate safeguards against identified risk to safety. The special self-supporting design obviates need of a sliding rail that would have been obtrusive and potentially hazardous.

Vehicle entry and exit is controlled from the security gate house so our client can rest assured that all movements are individually checked and validated. Vehicle transponders were considered but that option was too expensive and would not have provided the required flexibility.

We were asked to solve a problem that the client had with vehicle break-ins in the car park of this high class Country House style hotel. A limited budget was affordable from the small, family run business.

We installed a pair of traditional wrought iron swing gates, 3.3 metres wide, appropriate to the character of the property. Entry and exit are controlled by intercom and by a keypad adjacent to the gates. To allow easy entrance at busy times, an automatic loop detection system is fitted, switched from the reception desk to protect against "run-offs".

As usual, this contract was successfully completed on time and within budget.

The client approached us to defend his business premises against illegal stopping and camping by travellers.

Dual cantilever sliding gates combined with railings were installed to span a 20 metre wide roadway. Comprehensive safety systems were built into the design to protect users, employees and the general public. Entry to the two warehouses in the complex is controlled via intercom to each warehouse. Exit is by underground loop detectors.

The completed project has not only removed any risk of illegal stopping but occasional acts of vandalism and abuse have also been eradicated.

Chess Business Park

Chess Business Park
Chesham, Buckinghamshire

The client's brief was to secure access to this new high profile business park.

The entrance roadway was 8 metres wide. Two skirted barriers were installed in tower bridge configuration to control traffic in both directions. A double height pedestal carries dual controls accessible by drivers of both commercial vehicles and cars. Each control unit utilises the public telephone network to communicate independently with individual enterprises. By this means visitors can be properly vetted and the barriers may be operated safely and securely.

Exit is by underground detector loop. A timer opens the barriers during variable preset peak workday times.

This project was satisfactorily completed in record time to the delight of the client who now uses our services exclusively.
