Did you know …?

Sloan Companies just celebrated their 25th year in business!




We celebrated above the Blue Turf at the BSU Bronco stadium. We had over 120 guests, employees and families, clients and suppliers who joined in the celebration.






Featured International Project
U.S. Embassy in Western Africa




Sloan provided critical services to our client by designing, manufacturing and installing automated anti-climb gates at a U.S. Embassy in Africa. After the gates were installed by the local labor force, Sloan’s team of access control professionals completed and certified the installation and trained embassy security staff and on-site contractors in just a few days!

Maintenance Tip

Remember to carefully adhere to your monthly maintenance schedules on operated wedge barriers and be sure to document your completed tasks in your maintenance log. Your maintenance logs are critical to ensuring your equipment is covered by manufacturer warranty if there is ever an issue. Recently we had to complete a $20,000 repair for new barriers that were not maintained per manufacturer recommendations.
