While both residential and commercial gates serve the similar purpose of providing utmost safety and security to your property, they have different criteria of selection. There are some things you should take into consideration before purchasing a gate or garage door such as warranty period, type of material etc.

When it comes to choosing industrial gates you have to take into account factors such as corrosion resistance, material and its durability and purpose for installing the gate. Remember that an industrial gate is imperative to ensuring the safety of employees, and as a property owner you have to legally make sure you protect their right to security at the workplace.

What kind of gate should you get? That can depend on a number of factors; here are the most important ones.

Figure out the purpose of the gate

Employees who work in industries like process engineering, petrochemical, construction and others need to gain access to certain areas like platforms via ladders which can lead to falling accidents.

If you want to avoid this, you should consider investing in self-closing gates. Moreover, these can also be useful for restricting access to certain protected areas of the property. Self-closing hinges in these kinds of gates are useful for guaranteeing that it shuts behind the person on its own, and that it doesn’t create an unnecessary void.

Where will you install the gate

The location of the gate depends on the type of gate you eventually select. For restricted areas and testing zones it’s best to go for barriers. Install guardrails on walkways and protective barriers to indicate to workers the safest route to take and demarcate it clearly. Self-closing gates work for staircases and platforms and reduce the risk of falling.
