Wiring Options You Need for Your Business’s Parking Garage

If you are developing a parking garage for your customers and employees, you will need to consider the electricity used in that garage. Though many business owners think of the basic lighting and possible electricity for any security shacks and check-in points, there are other options that should be considered as well.

Here are a few of the options a commercial electrician can offer you and what you need to know about each one. 

Security Systems

One of the first options that you should consider for wiring in your business's parking garage deals with security systems. You will need to make sure that you have security alarms and security lighting installed. In addition to these security measures, you may also want to consider security boxes and cameras. The security boxes allow people who may be in need of your security team to use a phone or call button to alert the security team to their location. It will sound an alarm to alert the security team. Security cameras can also be installed and connected to the security team room by a commercial electrician. 

Security Gates

Gated entry is something that many businesses consider for their property but maybe not for their parking garage. Security gates can be implemented for use during overnight hours or weekends when a full security team may not be available. These gates should be wired to open either on a keypad or similar system. The gates can open and allow each person in securely. They can also note what times people came in and can work on a pay per hour ticket system as well. 

Directional Lighting

For many people, getting into the parking garage may be easy, but finding the right path out may be difficult. This is especially true at night. One way you can help with this is by having your commercial electrician install directional lighting. The lighting can be set to be a small coloured strip leading out. For example, a yellow lighting system could indicate the path to another level of the garage while a blue light can indicate the path out of the garage. 

When you are ready to wire and upgrade your business's parking garage, contact your local commercial electrician. They can help you with layouts, design options and upgrades you may not have considered. They can also answer questions regarding pricing and deadlines. If you are under specific deadline needs, you can discuss those needs during the consultation.
