Gated Community

Gated Community

FDC has been a leader in the gated community access control industry since 1978. Gated Communities throughout Florida rely on FDC’s services to create and maintain their controlled entrances, giving security and peace-of-mind to their residents. Capable of providing you with a turn-key installation from the ground up, FDC is able to design and build beautiful ornamental swing gates or automatic sliding gates to match the look and feel of your community while giving you the security your residents desire. Various entrance methods are available including call boxes, community clickers, telephone entry systems, card access systems and more. Not only will FDC build and install your gates, but we can also provide important preventative maintenance that will keep your gates in proper working order.

Need a modification or repair to an already existing gate? No worries, FDC can do that too! FDC personnel go through rigorous training so that when they hit the field, they are familiar with the widest possible array of knowledge and expertise to diagnose any problem your gates may have.

“After dealing with another gate company that left our gate inoperable for over a month, I called FDC to have someone take a look at our gate. The technician, Tom, was very pleasant and very helpful. He looked at the problem and checked to see that many of the parts were still under warranty. Within the week the gate was fixed. The best part was how Tom treated my staff and I, it was very refreshing to work with Tom, he’s a great asset to your company.”
