Access Control Systems

Access Control Systems

Access Control Systems are security systems used to control who has access to a certain area or resource. These systems are used in a variety of settings, such as businesses, government facilities, and residential properties.

Access Control Systems can be as simple as a keypad entry system or as complex as biometric scanning. They are designed to provide a secure environment by limiting access to authorized personnel only.

Access Control Systems can also be used to monitor and log who enters and exits a certain area, as well as the time and date of entry and exit. This can be invaluable for businesses, as it can help them keep track of employee attendance and ensure that only authorized personnel are accessing sensitive areas.

Available are a wide range of products, including mild steel barriers and bollards that prevent the unauthorised use of parking spaces.

These systems are typically composed of a few key components. The first component is the access control device, which is the physical or digital device that is used to grant or deny access to a specific area or system. This device can be a keypad, card reader, or biometric reader. The second component is the access control database, which stores information about the users who are allowed to access the system. This database can be used to store user credentials, such as passwords or biometric data, as well as other information about the user, such as their access privileges. The third component is the access control software, which is used to manage the access control system and to ensure that only authorised personnel can access the system.

Access control systems are an important part of any security system. They provide a layer of protection that can help to keep unauthorised personnel out of sensitive areas and systems. Additionally, they can help to ensure that only authorised personnel can access the resources they need. By implementing an access control system, businesses and organisations can ensure that their resources are secure and that only those who are authorised to access them can do so.

Premises access control systems for security and safety benefit pedestrians, vehicle owners, and the car park operator/owner. This is basically any physical presence restricting entry or exit from an area. This may be in the form of steel bollards, steel posts, steel barriers, steel gates, or security fencing.

When looking to control traffic access to a site, it is necessary to consider pedestrians. As unauthorised people can have similar implications to unauthorised traffic, it is vital to also consider perimeter barriers like rails.

It is equally important to safeguard wandering pedestrians where full exclusion cannot be achieved by installing bollards, posts, swing gates, warning signs.

When considering which type of access control system you require, one aspect is that of speeding. Speed bumps (speed ramps) are an effective control method, which should be accompanied by appropriate warning signs.

Vehicle height restriction barriers are becoming more widely used, particularly where vehicle access and unauthorised parking is a problem. For heavy-duty car parks as well as more enconomical systems for small sites, Aremco Barriers can provide reliable and resilient barriers.

The use of steel bollards inhibits parking and access in unauthorised areas, increases pedestrian safety and also improves security.

Access control gates and barriers provided by Aremco Barriers allow easy access for both vehicles and pedestrians. With our products that protect left vehicles in a secure environment, we are recognising an increase in demand for traffic access control in everyday security.

Above all, work is undertaken in accordance with accreditation ISO 9001:2015, with full support available as required.
