Vigneaux Is Jacksonville’s Approved Dealer for Top Loading Dock Equipment

Vigneaux is Jacksonville’s approved dealer for both McGuire and Pioneer dock equipment, and is proud to have been a dealer for these top loading dock equipment companies for the past three years. We are thrilled to offer the best in McGuire and Pioneer, as part of our commitment to offering unmatched quality, value and reliability to our North Florida customers.

Pioneer Dock Equipment has been a leading manufacturer of loading dock equipment for more than 40 years. Pioneer Dock Equipment is known for high-quality, durable dock products, and has developed a reputation for customer responsiveness. From levelers, truck restraints, seals and shelters to dock accessories and gates, Pioneer Dock Equipment has a full line of equipment to serve Jacksonville’s shipping and receiving needs.

Pioneer Dock Equipment now offers a new line of Smart+ products, the next generation in door operators, dock levelers and truck restraints. The line’s versa-panel operates all the equipment in a central location and features an emergency switch, a lock-out, tag-out switch that can be padlocked, and their human-machine interface (HMI). The HMI is the latest in the line of improvements in their equipment, and the key feature of the Smart+ technology.

Vigneaux is also proud to be an approved dealer for McGuire, which has manufactured high-quality dock leveling equipment since 1961. They take pride in delivering excellent products with strong warranty support. Best of all, McGuire manufactures from state-of-the-art facilities in Wisconsin and Arkansas, proudly bearing the “Made in America” label for all its dock levelers, truck restrains and specialty dock equipment.

Whether equipped on mechanic, hydraulic or air-powered dock levelers, McGuire’s signature touch is its iDock loading dock and communication controls. These technologically advanced controls provide an efficient interface with membrane dome technology. The iDock controls can also be connected to the cloud with web-based software for loading dock analytics.

Together, with our featured loading dock equipment providers, Vigneaux is helping bring Jacksonville the latest technologies in the business. All installs are backed by Vigneaux’s superior installation and 24/7 service guarantee.

Avoid the “Tail Light Guarantee”

Not all guarantees are as good as a Vigneaux guarantee. In fact, some are downright nonexistent! In the commercial door and gate industry, those fly-by-night contractors are delivering what is jokingly referred to as a “tail light guarantee.” What is a tail light guarantee? This means that your contractor’s support ends when you see the truck’s tail lights leaving the jobsite.

When researching the best contractor for your residential, estate or farm gate in Jacksonville, the best way to avoid the tail light guarantee is to choose a company like Vigneaux, with 24/7 service and over 30 years installing and maintaining gate operators. Longevity and trust have helped Vigneaux become the go-to provider for swing gates, slide gates and remotes for the private and residential sectors.

“Many of these cut-rate operators are not returning customer calls, and simply disappearing when things go wrong,” said Brian Davis, Vigneaux President. “The costs of repairs can often exceed what the customer thought they were saving in the first place. Even worse, is when these residential gate operators are so improperly installed that they cause damage or injury.”

To protect yourself from that tail light guarantee, ask your contractor the following questions:

• Is your contractor licensed and insured?
• How long have they been serving the North Florida area?
• Do they perform the installation work themselves or hire it out to a third party?
• What are their service hours and policies?
• Are they an authorized distributor for quality, name-brand parts and components?

Vigneaux installs and services most brands of residential gate operators, including the more popular manufacturers like FAAC, Viking and LiftMaster. In addition to their extensive commercial offerings, they provide solutions for most residential gate needs, including:

• Estate Swing Gate Operators
• Estate Slide Gate Operators
• Residential Swing Gate Operators
• Residential Slide Gate Operators
• Actuator Arm Replacements
• Gate Openers
• Gate Remotes
• Photo Eye Safety Sensors

For service requests and free estimates on residential, estate or farm gate operators in Duval, St. Johns, Nassau and Clay counties, call Vigneaux at 904-783-1600.

Access Control Systems Trending in Commercial Security

Crime rates are increasing across the globe, which is spurring a rise in the need for businesses to adopt additional security measures. The need for the safety and security of both people and property is universal across all industries and is often identified as that of primary importance to employers and employees alike.

How Important is an Access Control System?

An organization’s foremost responsibility is to protect and safeguard its employees. Additionally, there is a great importance, from a liability standpoint, for a business to secure its physical facility and assets. One of the most effective ways to accomplish both goals to install an access control system. The benefits of an access control system are two-fold. Access restrictions, whether through RFID, magnetic stripe, or other card reader system, ensure only those with proper authority are on-property. This provides a physical barrier for protection of what is inside the building, as well as a criminal deterrent for those outside the building. Secondly, electronic logs, like those from keypads or card entry systems, provide additional peace of mind. They map out everyone who may have given or received access at a particular time, should any issues occur.

Trends in Access Control For Perimeter Security

The overall access control market is expected to grow from $7.5 billion in 2018 to $12.1 billion by 2024.(1) In addition to traditional entry barriers like automatic gate systems and fences, businesses are looking for an additional layer of protection. However, the high cost of manned security has driven the demand for automated entry systems for the commercial sector. Access control systems provide consistent perimeter control, free from human error or bias, at a lower price point. Card-based readers are forecasted to be the most popular type of access control system, as businesses can regulate level of access, as well as monitor employee activity.

Why Vigneaux is a Leader in Access Control

We are experts in access control for commercial and industrial buildings. For more than 30 years, we have managed the design, installation, maintenance and service for parking, gate and entry control systems. Our access control and perimeter security systems are designed to meet each customer’s individual budget and specifications, and installed to last. We also understand the importance of a well-operating system, especially when a malfunction creates a security issue. Our emergency service team responds within 24 hours to ensure your business stays as protected as possible. Our expert technicians are trained on the latest equipment and technology to get you back up and running quickly.

If you are looking to increase security, or are having trouble with your existing access control system, please contact Vigneaux at call 904-783-1600 or visit our service request page.
