Suitable for use in underground car parks, high security applications or areas of limited space use.

We offer a range of bifolding and speed gates with a number of structural and drive solutions ranging from top or bottom track mounted or trackless versions to meet all types of applications. Each gate is designed to operate continuously, with options for high speed operation where fast access through the gates is required, i.e in high traffic environments.

The hanging posts are constructed from hollow steel sections with a welded steel top plate. The mounting brackets for the drive units are bolted to the top of the hanging posts. Control equipment is either mounted in the hanging posts or in a separate weatherproof lockable cabinet (subject to client requirements). The outer and inner adjustable hinges are specially designed for heavy use. The gate leaves can be guided by special rollers with stainless steel axles running in either a flush ground track, top track or trackless system.

Opening and closing speeds of around one metre per second make the gates ideal for integration with other forms of parking systems or access control systems. The Speed Gate is a serious alternative to conventional hinged or sliding gates in terms of cost and more importantly, operational security, efficiency and reliability.

The bifolding gate drive units have either single or three phase motors and worm drive gearboxes. The drive is transmitted to the bifolding gate leaf by an articulated arm, with a quick release facility to disengage the gates and operate manually in the event of a power failure.

The system has built-in ‘soft start/stop’ functions, together with speed control. The control panel has a built in auto close delay function, and plug in cards are available for inductive ground loops, traffic light/status indication, and electro-magnetic lock control. The gate is locked by the drive system. The fully programmable control panel will interface with all types of access control systems, including card readers, barcode systems, RFID radio transmitters, biometric etc.
