About Us


“Forging long term, close working relationships with

our customers”


We have been fitting car park barriers for over fifteen years with tremendous experience in this particular field and our business has grown completely from recommendations.

Our Managing Director Nick Baker, himself a former West Midlands Police Officer, set up Barrier One to augment Camera One (the CCTV arm of the business). Over the past twenty five years, the group of companies has enjoyed a controlled and sustained growth and now boasts a customer base in excess of 200 sites. Geographically the Company concentrates on the West Midlands but regularly undertake larger projects as far a field as Manchester (Salford Quays complex), Leeds (Leeds Central Railway Station) and London (Warner Brothers Studios) to name but a few.

Our customer base also includes:


  • Five Local Authorities (Birmingham, Sandwell, Solihull, Coventry & Dudley)
  • West Midlands Police
  • Trading Standards Authorities
  • The Environment Agency
  • British Transport Police
  • Endemol Productions (Makers of Big Brother & Salon)


Projects have ranged from Schools, Factories, Hotels, Pubs & Clubs, Shops and Film Studios! We currently have security systems installed at 31 schools, including CCTV, access control and car park barrier systems.
