Securing car parks with traffic barriers, bollards or automated gates is your first line in protecting & restricting access. Turnstiles and doors with access control can then be used to secure pedestrian walkways and buildings.

Paxton access control offers a secure, convenient, flexible and cost-effective way of controlling who has access to your building and when that access is allowed.

All businesses have to protect assets and employees whilst allowing people to move freely in the areas that they need. It is common in buildings that are secured by locks and keys for doors to be left unlocked all day.
This opens up the possibility of opportunist theft and malicious damage.

Installing an access control system means that you will never have to change a lock again. Tokens are issued to allow access through the controlled doors and are easily barred from the system if they are lost or stolen.


Maintenance service contracts are vital to not only comply with your requirements to keep the equipment in a safe working condition but also help prevent future breakdowns. Preventative works are always more cost effective than reactive ones.


We are now one of the largest automated gateway servicing and emergency call out maintenance companies across the midlands. Our team on average look after over a 1,000 automated gates, traffic barriers and roller shutter systems from Gloucester across to Nottingham and up to Manchester.

All our engineers are fully trained and come from an installation background so they can often diagnose faults
very quickly. 



For the forceable future we are not taking on any new domestic clients due to the work load on our commercial side of the business. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
