What to expect in the physical security world in 2023

Issue 1 2023 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection

We all know what happened to the industry during the Durban riots. Many companies closed down, while others barely survived. The companies that did make it are now looking at more ways to secure their properties, especial distribution centres that keep a lot of stock. Boomgate Systems has experienced a surge in orders to secure these properties.

Boomgate Systems has, over the past 25 years, secured many key installations like embassies, presidents’ residences (local and international), as well as national key points.

Boomgate Systems offers high security gates, like the Retractable Speed Gate that can open a 5 m x 3 m gate in 5 seconds. Boomgate’s Glide Master Cantilever Gate can close an opening over railway tracks up to 10 metres, as it requires no rail to move over the track.

Speed Gate.

The company has even received a request to make a gate that can stop a truck, while seeing higher and thicker walls going up around new and renovated premises. Boomgate Systems’ Warrior anti-terror range of products, like the Warrior road blocker and hydraulic bollards have seen an increase in sales. This is all good news for the company, but it shows that something is wrong. Properties are not safe and protected, as criminals are getting more desperate and more aggressive in gaining access into properties.

Most of the products mentioned can be viewed at the Boomgate Systems Experience Centre at Motor City, 686 Joseph Lister St, Constantia Kloof Ext 21, Roodepoort, Johannesburg.
