Paramount Security Solutions Security Gates

Securing a facility requires a comprehensive approach. Portland-based, Paramount Security Solutions provides all aspects of security gate installation, electric gate repair, gate automation, and security systems to go along with it. Every building has multiple vulnerabilities and it is our job to make sure those areas are covered. Windows and doors provide access to indoor areas for thieves who know how to bypass locks. Entrances without access control serve as an open invitation for unauthorized persons to enter restricted areas. Corners of the facility without video surveillance allow bad actors to commit crimes with no witnesses. That is why Paramount Security Solutions offers the best security gates Portland has to offer.

Paramount Security Solutions takes a holistic approach to safeguard the entire premises. For example, we can install commercial security gates to deter unauthorized vehicles, alarm systems if the premises is breached, cover all exterior areas with video surveillance, fence in vulnerable areas, and install access control systems to regulate entry points.

But commercial security systems should not stop there when roadways, parking lots, and parking garages wind around a property. No business owner wants unauthorized vehicles prowling the premises, especially at night. Keeping vehicles with no business on your property out requires access control gates. If businesses do not have a dedicated gate operator, gate automation is an option in Portland, Oregon. Automatic security gates can be installed at access points around the building and will require a code, RFID tag, or a specific token that allows entry.

Access control gates come in many sizes and varieties. Because businesses have vehicle access points of varying sizes and security risks, it’s important to choose the control gates that suit your company’s needs.

Paramount Security’s experts provide free consultations for clients and prospective clients in the Portland, Oregon, and SW Washington regions. Unlike security gate providers located out of state, Paramount Security Solutions offers on-site assessments of security gate needs, so you procure the type of gate that best suits your situation and budget.

The Benefits of Automated Security Gates

As a business owner, you are keenly aware of return on investment (ROI). When you make an investment, you want to know it pays off over time. Commercial security gates & gate automation for businesses provide more than peace of mind. After installing an automatic gate security system, business owners can expect to reap the following rewards:

Security

Automated security gates, along with a full fence enclosure, can protect your business from burglaries and vandalism. The first step to stop criminal activity is to control traffic in and out. At a major airport or an apartment parking garage, restricted areas have to be monitored using automated gates, swing gates using gate operators for additional security. Automated security gates increase perimeter security and minimize theft and criminal activity.

When you integrate a security gate system, alarm system, and a video surveillance system, unauthorized personnel can be monitored and immediately trigger the central station to dispatch police immediately. License plate readers on video cameras also capture images of any vehicles parked close to the scene of a break-in attempt.

Safety

The safety of our clients is our top-most priority. UL325 sets the standard for safety entrapment protection and we follow it to the “T”. We offer solutions for automated gate safety, vehicle sensor loops, detectors, photo eyes, safety edges and maintenance of entrapment protection devices. As experts in gate fabrication, installation, and automation, we help you by installing and servicing the safety solutions your family and business need. 

Gate automation, or, automatic security gates keep people safe. Whether deployed at an industrial facility or an apartment complex, you want your residents or employees safe from crime. Commercial security gates help to control vulnerable areas, and deter entry of unauthorized persons. Security gates can be installed in most settings, and programmed for authorized persons to enter using a token (credentials, passcode, key card, etc). At Paramount Security Solutions, safety of our clients is our top priority.

Easy Access for Businesses

Just because automatic security gates make it tough for unauthorized people to access your property does not mean access is difficult for those with legitimate business. Paramount Security Solutions offers a variety of tokens (credentials). Employees and others use these tokens to open the security gates. Tokens can include the following:

    Z

    Badges

    Z

    Keycards

    Z

    PIN Numbers

    Z

    Smartphones

    Tokens eliminate the need for security guards, saving your business money.

    Insurance

    Many insurance carriers offer premium discounts for customers with automated security gates. Because your investment in commercial security gates reduces the probability of your business filing a claim for damage or theft, it’s logical your premiums should be lower.

    Security gates, security systems, access control systems, and video surveillance systems reduce liability, accidents, theft, and damage across the board. Management can view employees in the field and correct improper procedures before an accident occurs, and the business can better entry points with these security devices. 

    Types of Commercial Security Gates

    The type of security gate you choose depends on your environment, space constraints, and budget. Different types of commercial security gates can complement a fence installation and add to a comprehensive security system. There may also be need for a custom gate for aesthetic or additional security. The following security gate options all provide excellent security for the Portland Area at a reasonable cost:

    Slide Gates

    A sliding gate is a type of electric gate that open and close in a side-to-side motion, making them an excellent choice when swing gates are impractical because they would run into objects. Slide gates come in three varieties: V-Groove rolling side gates, Cantilever slide gates, and Overhead slide gates.

    E

    V-Groove Rolling Slide Gates

    V-groove sliding gates open and close due to the operation of a wheel that crosses a V-groove track installed on the ground beneath the gate to lock. The construction of this gate is best for a parking lot or parking garage without snow or ice and on paved roads because debris can cause the need for gate repair.

    E

    Cantilever Slide Gates

    Cantilever slide gates also open and close due to the operation of wheels. However, cantilever gate wheels never touch the ground, making them suitable in climates with snow and ice. They are also a good choice in warmer climates, especially on unpaved roads.

    E

    Overhead Slide Gates

    Overhead slide gates are a type of electric gate that move with the help of an overhead support beam. The beam may traverse the entire distance or just the opening.

    E

    Swing Gates

    Swing gates are ideal for areas with a smaller opening that leaves insufficient room for a slide gate, provided there is sufficient room for the outward swinging motion.

    E

    Vertical Lift Gates

    In some situations, there may be insufficient room for a slide gate or a swing gate. In these cases, vertical lift gates provide the solution.

    E

    Vertical Pivot Gates

    Vertical pivot gates open and close in the same motion as a railroad crossing arm. These highly secure gates save space in comparison to sliding gates. Installation is also less expensive, and they are highly customizable.

    E

    Tiger Teeth Gates & Controlled Traffic Flow

    Tiger teeth security gates are typically used to control one-way traffic in and out of an area. Often times, you will see tiger teeth gates near airport terminals, rental car facilities, parking garages, and parking lots. Tiger teeth prevent traffic from driving through the wrong way through a one-way area.

    E

    Barrier Gates

    Barrier gate operators are another method for controlled traffic flow. They can help to prevent traffic from coming in & out of parking lots. Generally these are used in commercial areas, industrial facilities, airports, or business complexes. They can be programmed to require credentials such as a pin-pad code, key card, RFID tag, or other types of tokens.

    Paramount has gained my respect on multiple levels. Recently they installed a security system throughout our new business. At the time, we had some issues with bringing in the necessary coverage from our local provider and ended up having to switch companies in the middle of setting up. This situation could have proved to be a disaster, but Paramount was on top of it from day one. I was impressed with how they took the initiative to assist me in working with the provider so that things were handled correctly and that we were given the coverage that supported our security needs. During the process, they made sure that all issues were addressed and handled immediately.

    Paramount made my job a lot easier and gave me peace of mind by responding promptly, and listening effectively. I observed them time and again going above and beyond to take care of their clients.

    It is my pleasure to highly recommend Paramount. The quality of work they provide along with the level of Customer Service they deliver is first-rate. Paramount Security Solutions is superb!

    Low voltage electrical and data networking customer from Tualatin, OR

    Working with Paramount was 5 Star Service from the first phone call! All team members were very professional and ‘gracious’. I’ve felt ’taken care of’ in the most gracious of customer service ways. I’m really pleased to have a trusted gate repair resource I can call and know that I will be okay.

    Elizabeth H.

    Gate Service and Repair customer from West Linn, OR

    Paramount’s concern and service to us here have been impeccable, companies that stick with it and put their customers first are a dying breed as I have seen over the years. It is refreshing to deal with a company that not only takes ownership in resolving a situation but does it with concern for the customer’s budget as well. That truly sets you and your company apart from others. Thank you both very much for going that extra mile to make our business run smoother and taking the best care.

    How To Choose Your Gate Automation Solution

    Should your gate slide or swing? We help our residential, commercial and retail clients answer this and many other questions when they are exploring their choices. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions.

    What are my options in terms of automatic gates?

    Automatic gates come in one of 3 different configurations – sliding, swing and barrier arm. There are many factors to consider when finding the right solution meeting your exact needs. When we visit you on-site to discuss your requirements and priorities, we will look at security, the convenience of use, aesthetics, privacy, type of automation and access to the property. Once we know your requirements, we will be in a position to advise you on the best gate solution.

    What exactly does “automation” of a gate include?

    Simply put, with the push of a button your gate(s) will open by themselves. We can fit keypads so that cars who have codes can open the gate without a remote. We can fit safety beams to protect children and cars from being contacted by the closing gate. We fit intercoms so that you can speak to (and even see) the person standing in front of your gate.

    What kind of maintenance is involved with my automatic gate?

    Armed with a detailed maintenance and inspection checklist, our technicians ensure that your investment in gates and related solutions are tested, inspected, lubricated and aligned providing maximum safety and increased longevity of your equipment.

    This service is offered on a regular basis, quarterly for commercial customers and every 6 months for residential, depending on the type of equipment and the frequency of use. This proactive service is offered to all clients to help maximize the life of their asset, and prevent any undue expense due to negligent use.

    Are there any safety features I should be aware of?
