Why install Vehicle Access Barrier
For one, vehicle access barriers will help in controlling access to parking spaces, whether at malls, private parking spaces, and even public parking. Vehicle access barriers are a form of security for controlling entry and exit of vehicles from a secure space. These electronic barriers have greatly reduced incidences of car theft from both public and private parking lots.
Secondly, vehicle access barriers have made it easy to electronically collect vehicle parking fees. To be used for collecting vehicle parking fees, the barrier system will be programmed to automatically process billing based on the number of hours a car has stayed in the parking. Hence, the vehicle owner will be given an electronic card or parking chip at the point of entry. The vehicle owner uses the electronic chip to gain entry into the controlled parking space. The same electronic chip will be used at the point of exit to open the vehicle barrier to allow vehicle exit.
