Gates and Barriers

Automated Gate Automatic Gate

Perimeter control systems play a key part in securing restricted areas and perimeters. Below is a brief description of the three methods we currently offer, with more specialist solutions such as automated bollards and anti-ram barriers, available upon request. Access and egress methods can be fully integrated with J-Sec's access control systems or with third party systems where required.

Vehicle barriers

Vehicle barriers can block access to roadways from 2m up to 16m dependant upon the road width and desired operation. A selection of accessories can be added including skirts, flashing boom arms and strobe barrier casings to indicate the barrier's movement.

Barriers are best suited to high traffic applications and areas where fast operation is paramount. Although the barrier provides a good perimeter, these would not suit unmanned, high security applications.

J-Sec can provide an end to end solution including civil and electrical work. We also work with clients preferred contractors in these areas if there is an existing contractor in place.

Automated Gates

There are a selection of automated gates available, the most popular being sliding or swing.

Sliding gates offer the highest level of security as they will withstand the highest amount of force should an intruder attempt to gain entry. They can protect roadways from 2m up to 15m. Sliding gates are best suited to commercial and industrial applications where security is paramount and the gate is unmanned.

Swing gates offer a greater degree of security than a barrier, but can be forced easier than a sliding gate. Sliding gates suit mid security commercial or residential premises due to their more aesthetically pleasing appearance and simpler installation.


Pedestrian turnstiles can either be full height or half height dependent upon their application. Half height turnstiles are best suited to more prestigious and low security applications such as office building foyers. Full height turnstiles are suited for entrances to stadiums, factories entrances for staff and construction height.

Fitting a turnstile significantly reduces the risk of 'tailgating' through an access control door.
