Guide to creating a car park as a safe environment
Security gates, grilles and shutters for car parks are a fundamental element in creating a safe environment where people are happy to park their vehicles.
When vehicles are left unattended, they are at risk of :
Vehicle theft, whereby the vehicle itself is stolen
Theft of in-car entertainment systems
Theft of satellite navigation systems
Theft of any valuables left inside the vehicle
Whether developing a new car park, or looking to improve the security of your existing premises, it is essential that you consider how you’ll obtain a high level of security. Car parks with low levels of security will face a number of issues, including a rise in criminal activity and a reduction in use, which can be incredibly problematic for commercial enterprises.
Avoid the risk of security and safety issues by ensuring that your car park complies with Government legislation and follows best practice guidelines regarding security. Security can be approved by improving and installing the following.
Ample lighting throughout your car park can help reduce the risk of crime. Preventing areas from being obscured by darkness or shadows limits the opportunity for criminal acts to be carried out and makes the general public feel safer using the space.
The cost of installing and running lighting can be reduced by painting interiors white. White walls will create a brighter space, which will help reduce annual energy costs and mean that less lights are required to illuminate the space.
Lighting also has an effect on the quality of CCTV footage, so developers should choose appropriate lighting that aids this.
Clearly signposted CCTV can help keep your car park secure, as all users are aware they are being recorded. Footage can be used as evidence to prosecute and, if manned, can alert security of potential risks. Cameras should be installed to cover key areas of your car park, such as vehicle entry and exit points, and any priority areas, including:
Help points and information centres
Bike or motorcycle storage
Pedestrian access points.
Systems should use a DVR (Digital Recording System) to store images and CCTV equipment should be of a high enough standard to be able to distinguish number plates and allow for facial recognition. CCTV operators must comply with an increasing number of regulations as explained in this comprehensive guide by the ICO.
CCTV should be supported by ‘natural surveillance’ such as patrols by security personnel where possible.
Barriers can be used to control access to your carpark and the flow of traffic during busy periods. Traffic barriers installed at the entry and exit points can be integrated with ticket issuing or can be operated using access control systems, such as key pad entry or card swipes, for private access carparks.
Traffic barriers can provide the level of protection required during normal operating hours, but additional barriers may need to be installed when closed, or during off-peak hours.
Controlling flow through personnel entrances
It is equally as imperative that footfall traffic is properly controlled. Where appropriate, entrances and exits designed for foot traffic should include access control features to prevent unauthorised access. Using automatic doors with integrated security features allow for easy access routes that comply with The Equality Act 2010 while delivering a good level of security.
Installing high security roller shutters (allowing suitable ventilation) to prevent access to your carpark offers maximum levels of security. Highly secure shutters installed externally can safeguard your carpark while it is closed. Alternatively, when controlled using keypad, fob, or card entry, shutters can be used to prevent unauthorised access in residential or business carparks.
Grilles and shutters can also be installed throughout the carpark to aid or restrict vehicle and foot traffic flow. Internally installed shutters can help create routes that mean all pedestrians or vehicles must pass a particular point, such as a CCTV camera, or a ticket machine.
Ventilation of car parks smoke clearance to remove toxic exhaust fumes including carbon monoxide. Shutters must allow for airflow. The build-up of toxic emissions in carparks can pose a health risk if airflow is restricted, so it is essential that your shutters are perforated so they are secure but don’t restrict air movement.These covered by Building Regulations Fire: Approved Document B and Ventilation: Approved Document F.
Whilst there are ways for you to help maintenance, it is mandatory to have your doors inspected every 12 months. Due to the The Workplace Regulation 1992 Maintenance of Equipment, Devices and Systems, it is compulsory that all shutter windows and doors follow the correct procedures. It is advised that they are inspected at least once a year, not only to adhere to regulations, but for the safety of you and your property.
Our aftercare service includes a 24 hour nationwide repair and planned maintenance service, and 12 month warranty on all products as standard. Our network of skilled and reliable engineers operate throughout the UK to ensure your door and gate systems are continually working to maximum efficiency, to prolong their working life and reduce any potential unwanted costs.
The answer is yes but on most occasions they will require a new control panel. The new control panel will take the safety edges and device inputs. On the majority of gates it is more cost effective to replace the old automation for a new more up to date system which has integrated safety features and allows the input of additional safety features.
The recommendation for commercial shutters, gates and barriers in a car park setting is that they should be serviced every 6 months. Some high usage sites will require servicing every 3 months.
