Corporate headquarters require a variety of solutions at their entrances and exits to ensure that the only people entering the building are those who are supposed to be there. Security of rented properties, single-company buildings, and large multi-tenant buildings can all benefit from security entrances to help keep employees safe and properly accounted for.
The entrance to your company is so much more than a simple door or gate. It is also the first touchpoint for your customers and visitors and where they will make their first impressions of your business. It is also the point where your hard-working staff will be coming in and out every day. Many factors need to be taken into consideration from the required level of security to aesthetics and installation.
Physical Security at Standalone Buildings
When your business inhabits an entire building, security at the entrance is of paramount importance. Security entrances such as turnstiles help to control crowds during peak traffic times and can be configured with access control to require credentials to be presented and authorised. Security entrances can be supplemented with a guard for added oversight and to prevent passback of credentials. Installing security entrances can help protect employees working within the facility from volatile situations and potentially limit the impact to the lobby, where authorities can more readily respond and deal with any problems or threats.
Functionality is important, but you also want your company’s entrance to be visually appealing while also matching the style of your brand and organisation.
If you want to achieve a sophisticated modern look, adapting and using the latest entrance technology, such as the use of biometrics, is a great way to achieve this. Alternatively, a speed gate or revolving door can help give off a clean, minimalistic look to your building.
Privacy also plays a role when it comes to the aesthetic of your corporate entrance. Do you want a large, transparent entrance that will allow passers-by and potential customers to look into your building from the outside, or do you require a smaller, more private, entryway?
