Top security features for car parks
Carparks can be one of the most difficult areas of your business to secure; constant traffic, multiple access points, blind spots and tight spaces. But there are plenty of security features you can implement to ensure your company’s carpark is as safe as possible.
The simplest and quickest method to improving car park safety is the installation of clear and concise signage. This includes directions to entrances and exits, stairwells, ticketing areas as well as personnel only areas. Not only will this mean a smoother journey for the customer, it will minimise distractions, so they are more alert to their surroundings and any potential dangers from criminal activities.
Depending on the design of your carpark, increasing lighting and visibility can be another easy way to improve safety. The dimness of multistorey or underground carparks can create a haven for criminals and illicit activities. Installing bright lights, or even maximising the natural light available within the carpark, will help to eliminate hiding spaces and give customers maximum visibility for any potential threats.
A key feature of carpark security is surveillance. It is important to tailor a security solution that fits your carpark layout and needs. You’ll need to consider:
The best type of surveillance – CCTV, motion sensing, infra-red
Locations of concern - stairwells, blind corners, personnel only areas, entrances and exits
Staff numbers – do you have enough security personnel to monitor and respond to incidents
By far the most effective security measure you can take to ensure carpark safety is to employ security personnel. Often the presence of security staff provides a major deterrent to criminal activity. Additionally, employing security guards can deliver a huge boost to customer confidence and safety as they make use of the carpark.
