There are a large number of access solutions, from systems which control access at Single Points of Entry, to larger Controlled Access Systems, to the automation of gates and barriers to control external access. Security Wise (N.W) Limited has the skills, knowledge and experience to offer you a range of solutions that will meet your individual requirements.
Why Are Access Control Systems Important?
Security Wise (N.W) Limited offers a range of access control products, from basic audio entry phones to multi door token based systems. Access control along with intruder alarm systems are the most effective forms of electronic security, controlling who and when that person can enter your building.
These systems come in various forms and can be integrated with other security systems currently installed on your site. Traditionally the flow of employees and visitors was controlled via mechanical means, locks and keys, however there are a couple of drawbacks with these mechanical systems. The first is it is not possible to remove a lost key from the system without rekeying all the locks that the key operated, and the second is that there will not be an audit trail as to which key was used in which lock.
Thanks to the advent of Computer based applications, access can be controlled with much more ease while granting many more benefits. These include:
- Removal of expensive Keys from the workplace.
- Ability to issue access to new employees without waiting for keys to be cut.
- Computerised Systems can grant or restrict access to any area to any or all employees.
- Control where the public can or cannot access.
- Audio Entry Systems incorporate the ability to communicate with Visitors while maintaining maxiumum security.
- Log access by door or by employee in an easy to use computer system, and generate reports.
- Generate Roll-Call Reports instantly for emergency or mock-emergency situations.
- Compliance with customer requirements and accreditation requirements for Site Security.
- And many more benefits.
Any door can be controlled with either of the above systems with the addition of the right electronic locking system, Security Wise (N.W) Limited can offer a custom designed system to fit your requirement. Call 01257 475678 for your free access control survey.

Below is a brief explanation on the different types of gate automation.
Swing Gate Automation
Gate Mounted Arm
In general this type of automated gate system is of a lower cost than the underground system. We offer electro-mechanical systems as well as electro-hydraulic, in general the electro-mechanical system is the cheaper but has a limited amount of hourly use. This type of unit is ideally suited for individual properties; we would not recommend a mechanical operator for multi occupancy applications. Hydraulic units are more robust and can cope with a larger amount of use, they are ideally suited to heavier gates or multi user sites.
This type of system offers a discrete solution which avoids altering the appearance of the gate. As with the on gate system we offer electro-mechanical and electro-hydraulic systems, electro-mechanical systems are cheaper but have limited amount of hourly use. This type of unit is ideally suited for individual properties; we would not recommend a mechanical operator for multi occupancy applications. Hydraulic units are more robust and can cope with a larger amount of use, they are ideally suited to heavier gates or multi user sites.
Sliding Automated Gates
Tracked Sliding Gates
This as the name suggests runs upon a track set into the ground across the entrance being controlled. A relatively level area is required for satisfactory installation
Cantilevered Sliding Gate
This is useful when the entry area is not level or if you wish to install the automated gate without disturbing the drive surface.
