Case Study – Vehicle Access Control System

Vehicle Access Control System Installation

Crime Prevention Services have recently completed a cutting-edge vehicle access control system at Custom Precision Joinery in Buckley, Flintshire.


The site entrance to the premises has been transformed by the addition of new automated double leaf gates and a manual pedestrian gate. Formally protected by a tired set of wooden gates topped with razor wire Custom Precision Joinery’s site entrance is now framed by sleek, modern looking bespoke steel gates.

BEFORE: cpj-vehicle-access-system-3

AFTER:     cpj-vehicle-access-system-1

CPS installed DEA ground-operating motors to the gates (buried underground) and the motors are linked to the gate control and safety equipment. All cabling between the motors has been buried underground to ensure protection from site vehicle traffic and the elements.

Use of the vehicle access control system is managed via an Intercom Call Panel (with integrated electronic keypad) which is linked to internal telephone handsets. There are numerous safety protocols in place including a manual override key-switch and impact sensors.


Dan Farrell (CPS Sales Director) says:

It was a pleasure to design, oversee and project-manage this installation for Custom Precision Joinery. It was very satisfying to see it all come together and the Installation Team have done a fantastic job providing a high-spec installation for our client. The project has taken approximately 6 weeks from placement of order to having the gates installed and fully operational.

Crime Prevention Services have invested heavily in adopting the highest levels of gate safety and as Gate Safe Premier Aware accredited installers our customers are reassured that our vehicle access control systems meet the stringent safety standards set by the industry.

We have worked hard with our client to provide a suitable design that offers user flexibility while also maintaining a high level of security for the site.
