Blake Fire and Security Systems

... your home is a far less attractive target to potential burglars. Simply, it is much harder to enter and leave a property protected by automatic gates.

While any door entry system allows you to vet visitors before letting them in!

    Door Entry Systems & Automatic Gates

    A door entry system with automatic gates is the first line of defence for your home or business. It is the modern equivalent of a spy hole and limiter chain… but much more secure and providing far more peace of mind. You can ask for ID, turn away salesmen and prevent distraction burglary easily by simply not letting anyone that you don’t like the look of onto your property - and anywhere near your front door!

    With Blake Fire & Security Systems, you can be certain that you will get:
    • High standards – you will get the best equipment for your specific requirements, with service and installation to match.
    • Fast turnaround – although our workload varies we can usually get the job done in a week because we hold most of the equipment at our HQ in Southend
    • Preferential prices – cheap is the wrong word. We offer fantastic value by passing on savings we get from the long-standing relationships we have with our suppliers. We get a better deal from PAC, Paxton, Fermax and Videx so you do too.
    "I write to congratulate your staff, Matt and Ben, on the excellent job they did on the automation of the school gates.

    Ben spent a considerable amount of time on site whilst we are operational and he was very respectful to the staff, pupils and parents. He was subjected to the most horrendous weather and yet remained cheerful and extremely professional."

    How do door entry systems work?

    The person requesting access presses a buzzer, you respond and let the person in or not, as appropriate. Many blocks of flats use an intercom system while others opt for video. This offers additional protection because you can see the person requesting entry without them seeing you. It’s like a modern version of the spy hole, just much safer.

    How do automatic gates work?

    It all depends… They can operate on a timer clock, via a keypad or remote fob. Like a car key fob, you press once, and the gate will open, then close. Alternatively, you can opt for a system that opens automatically called an exit loop. Most people opt for a fob or keypad system.

    How much will my door entry system and/or automatic gates cost?

    Blake Fire & Security Systems take pride in installing only exceptionally high-quality products. BFT, Fermax and Paxton are our trusted partners. We don’t supply cheaper alternatives because we don’t want to keep coming back to fix a system when it goes wrong. You pay a little more for this equipment, but you can be sure it will serve you well for years to come and save you money in the long term. 

    The exact price depends on your specific requirements. Give us a call or click the red 'Get my home security survey' button and one of our specialists will talk you through the options.

    How soon can you do the work?

    We usually get the work done within a week. We do have busy periods but can usually manage a seven-day turnaround. We hold a lot of stock at our Southend HQ so usually have the equipment you need to hand. If not BFT are quick to deliver and we work closely with local supplier Fermax. So any extra equipment we need is available quickly.
