Vehicle access control systems carry different meanings for different clients. It may be a parking and revenue control system for a garage or maybe an anti-terrorist wedge barrier for a highly secure location.

It could be a guard booth with a slide or swing gate operator or maybe just a card reader and a barrier gate. How about a parking guidance system? Traffic spikes? Telephone access system? Keypads? Intercoms? Whatever vehicle access control systems means to you, ECI can help. We can design, install and maintain a system that addresses your specific needs.

Our support includes assistance in parking lot, island, lane configurations and conduit layouts. From start to finish, every project is attended to with the highest regard to your complete satisfaction.

“Electrical Contractors Inc. worked closely with our firm to provide installation and project management for a high-security gate installation. While this was our first venture together, that had no bearing on their quality or work as they performed flawlessly. From pre-sales engineering assistance, coordination, installation and final test, their team was right on schedule every step of the way. Frontier could not be happier with their overall quality of work, and as a result will continue to recommend ECI for all future gate installations.”
