Secure Your Construction Site: Keep Workers and Pedestrians Safe with Portable Security Gates

Call Today

In construction, there’s a medley of must-haves tools, heavy machinery and equipment, materials… and safety protocols.! In fact, the safety of both the workers and passersby is a top priority on any work site. Sturdy barriers, accordion gates, scissor gates, and more safety structures separate the frenzy within from the outside world. Only authorized personnel gain access, keeping the public safe and projects on track. Safety gates are the workhorses of construction security, an essential line of defense against real-world hazards.

There are several important reasons why these security gates and safety measures are vital for pedestrian mitigation. Let’s examine some key situations and purposes that underscore their importance.  

Protection from Hazards 

Timing: In construction zones, barriers, fencing, and security gates are necessary whenever there are ongoing repairs, renovations, or maintenance work that poses potential hazards to pedestrians.  

Why: Construction sites can present various dangers to pedestrians, including heavy machinery, flying debris, uneven surfaces, tripping hazards, and falling objects. Steel gates and barriers create a physical separation between people and these hazards, reducing the risk of injuries or accidents. They can also serve as a vibrant visual and discouraging deterrent, like fluorescent orange and yellow safety cones, foldable accordion gates, or scissor gates, for added attention and awareness.  

Entry and Exit Points 

Timing: Temporary gates are often used to manage pedestrian access to construction sites, including entry and exit points.  

Why: Construction sites may have controlled access points to establish safety and security. These barriers help channel pedestrians entering or exiting the site through designated routes, making certain they do not inadvertently wander into hazardous areas. They also facilitate the monitoring and screening of workers accessing the construction site.  

Crowd Control 

Timing: The use of safety barriers is common in open-space construction areas, like shopping malls or airports (or even in spaces where construction isn’t happening, like event centers or concerts). These safety measures are erected before and during the construction process to manage pedestrian flow around the area in question and ensure safety. 

Why: Large gatherings of people can lead to congestion, increasing the risk of accidents. Barriers, fencing, and gates establish defined routes and enclosures, facilitating crowd control, managing movement, and preventing unauthorized access to restricted areas.
