Most automotive dealerships keep a large portion of their inventory parked outside. They also do more than sell vehicles. For example, your car dealership may have an on-site service station and keep hundreds, or even thousands, of files about customers. When a customer comes in to buy a car or have their vehicle serviced, they expect you to keep their information confidential, and protect their car, especially if it needs to stay overnight.
While it's impossible to bring every car inside at night, security rolling doors and grilles help keep other critical items at the dealership safe and secure. These doors provide a reliable method of protecting customer vehicles and documentation while also creating a beautiful aesthetic when your facility isn't open.
Most dealerships have areas that need protection, typically through a security door, gate, or alternative method. They want their service areas, such as a mechanic shop or detailing station, and the main building's lobby and offices secured overnight.
Service stations have garage doors that allow vehicles to enter and exit. A security gate in these areas should be sturdy enough to protect from break-ins and lightweight enough to move with ease, either automatically or manually.
There are two ways to secure an auto dealership's lobby with gates. The first is by having security grilles roll down the length of each showroom window. These grilles will protect the offices and any show-floor vehicles from outside influences.
Alternatively, you can opt to install security grilles around a specific lobby area. To secure employee offices, you can install a grille that encircles those areas instead of the entire building. If you are building a lobby for a new dealership, consult with your employees about their priorities.

Service stations have large, open garage doors that can become liabilities if you fail to take security measures.
