One thing you shouldn’t compromise on, however, is security. In this post, we’ll be giving you a few reasons why a gated access storage facility will better protect your belongings.
- What is Gated Access? Simply put Gated access is a physical security measure put in place as a fence with a locked gate. This protects everything within the fenced perimeter. many residential communities have this security feature but so do many Self Storage facilities.
- Gated Access Features: Not every facility with gated access has the same features. Some have a seemingly complex wrought iron fence and gate with the gate set up to slide open when the appropriate key code or key card is used at the gate’s access panel. Some storage facilities even have more complex access panels where tenants can also pay their monthly bill and receive receipts as well as provide the owners of the facility remote control.
- Is Gated Access Worth It? While many people’s opinions may differ, we believe that having gated access to your storage facility is high worth it in terms of cost and peace of mind. A gated fence adds an additional level of security for everything within that fenced perimeter by keeping out potential criminals, the general public and anyone else who seeks unauthorized access to the many belongings and valuables located within any given storage facility.
