Quality Gates | Access Control Applications

At Quality Gates, we offer access control for most applications, including pedestrian gates, vehicular gates, exit doors, and more. We’ve compiled a product list for you here to describe the kinds of access control we provide at Quality Gates, as well as our recommended access control applications and favorite brands!

Basic Keypad

Keypads are ideal for any kind of gated entry–from residential applications to larger community and industrial sites, keypads are simple, tried-and-true methods for access control. Most notably used by Quality Gates for pedestrian gate access control and vehicular gate access control, keypads are available in wireless and hard-wired connections. They are typically compatible with solar as well as electrical applications and are available in standalone or tied into an access control system by way of Wiegand connection. This allows easy tracking of who comes in and out and which codes are used. Keypads work great for beach access gates and pool gates, as well.

Applications we recommend:

  • Pedestrian Gates (beach access gates, pool gates, residential pedestrian gates,)
  • Residential and Community Vehicular Gate Access
  • Secure facilities

Brands we love!

  • Essex, Linear, DoorKing, LiftMaster, Assa Abloy

Maglocks as a Locking Mechanism

Maglocks are great additions to pedestrian gates and in some cases vehicular gates to keep them closed tightly. A standard size maglock that Quality Gates would typically use on a gate is a 1200lb maglock–this means the resistance is equal to 1200lb. This works well for many breezy coastal sites or tropical locations. Quality Gates uses self-closing hinges on our pedestrian gates to ensure they close behind each guest further enhancing the security of your application.

Applications we recommend:

  • Pedestrian gates that require locks or tropical, breezy locations.
  • Vehicular swing gates

Brands we love!

  • Secolarm, Assa Abloy, DoorKing, Liftmaster, Locinox, Alarm Controls

Request to Exit Devices for Pedestrian Exit

Request to Exit (REX) buttons and Request to Exit hands-free devices are easy-to-use and typically used on access-controlled pedestrian gates or doors. Available in button-style (touch to exit) and hands-free styles (wave to exit), these make exiting a secure facility a breeze. These are also used with solenoid locks (door strikes) and include panic bar-style exit devices as well as motion-detection devices to automatically unlock a door upon approach.

Applications we recommend:

  • Access-controlled pedestrian gates (beach access gates, hotel pool gates, etc)
  • Access-controlled exit door for secure facilities

Brands we love!

  • Secolarm, Essex, Assa Abloy, Honeywell, Alarm Controls, Enforcer

Telephone Entry Systems for Large Communities and More

For larger communities (either residential or industrial), a telephone entry system can make more sense for guests and those who are not authorized to be on the property. These devices allow visitors to call in from the entrance gate and speak to someone for entry. There are many types ranging from very basic call boxes to fancy systems with video.

Applications we recommend

  • Apartment building gates
  • Residential gated communities

Brands we love!

  • DoorKing, Elika, Cell Gate, Maximum Controls, LiftMaster

Card Reader/Fob Reader for Access Control

Card/fob readers (HID and/or AWID) are popular choices for basic access control. Another great option for apartment complexes and larger community applications, card readers can be a great way to grant gate or door access to permanent residents in a community or employees in a secure facility. Like keypads, these devices can be tied into a database where the credentials for each card-holder or fob-holder can be tracked for better security.

Applications we recommend

  • Residential communities
  • Secure facilities

Brands we love!

  • DoorKing, Essex, LiftMaster, Linear
