Automated gates help utility provides secure access to their premises

Installing automated gates combined with other access control and perimeter security measures is vital for utility providers, who are likely to undergo massive investment programmes in the near future, security experts believe.

Government reports point out that the UK’s ageing energy networks require an investment totalling £41.6 billion to meet current and future demands, while the UK water industry plans to invest at least £5 billion a year for the next five years.

Since utilities are part of the critical national infrastructure, they must be highly protected, as any type of security breach, no matter how minor, can have severe consequences on public safety and service availability, both of which may have serious national security implications.

The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) advises that an effective perimeter solution such as fences, gates, and barriers must be implemented in a manner that supports organisational processes, both security and site operation, and the activities of security personnel. The CPNI also stresses the importance of understanding how internal teams and support agencies such as the police will respond to incidents when designing these measures.
