Commercial Bi-Folding High Speed Gates
Photos were not allowed to be taken during the construction process due to security. A total of four entrances were installed with bi-folding speed gates for DHL. The gate system was designed to integrate within the existing access control parking barrier system and add additional high security. Due to the site layout a sliding or swing gate was not possible as the leaves would intrude on the opening space between the gate posts.
Speed gates can open at more than twice the speed of a traditional swinging gate of the same size, which ensures a fast flow of traffic while ensuring security of the site. Hi speed gates are often used on police stations and possibly the bat cave due to the fast action opening times of the gates. These gates are also very popular at high security installations such as Power Stations, warehouses and government buildings.
The trackless speed gate utilises a PLC controlled, inverter driven, 3 phase motor, worm and wheel gearbox with a direct-drive shaft connected to the gate leaf, which ensures a smooth and positive movement. The gates motors are very heavy duty and are designed for minimal maintenance and 100% duty cycle i.e. continuous operation
The gates are manufactured using a RHS steel frame and CHS tubular steel infills- it is then galvanised and powder coated to suit the customer requirements- i.e corporate branding.
The high speed gates can be customised with a wide range of infills for privacy or finials to match adjoining fencing design or the property. Also available are spiked tops, flashing lights and sirens if you really need to ensure people heed your warning.
