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. 

Renzland gates can link up the speed gates are compatible with most access control options, including keypad, proximity card, inductive loop, push button, remote control, ANPR cameras or even your smart phone via our GSM and IP access control solutions.

Metal Swing Gate with matching pedestrian gate & railings- Ripley Surrey

Before Electric gates- Ripley, Surrey

After Electric Gates, Ripley Surrey

This is a recent electric swing gate installation carried out by Renzland Powergates Ltd in Ripley, Surrey (located on Guildford Road between Woking and Lightwater ) 

The brick wall to the entrance was modified to accommodate the new gates and give the client an additional pedestrian gate and railings. As the driveway is on an inclined hill, precise ground works were carried out ensure the gate ran smoothly and level whilst not compromising on aesthetics. The tarmac drive was sympathetically repaired after the alterations had taken place.

For additional security the swing gate was fitted with an electric lock with a 800kg holding force this will ensure the gate cannot be forced open causing potential damage to the motors or rattle during strong winds.

As a gesture of good will, we fitted the pedestrian gate with a gas closer free of charge to ensure the gate is always closed so their children and the family dog cannot run out on to the busy road.

Our client is delighted with the new gates and railings and not only has it ensured the entrance is safe and secure for the family, it has also transformed the appearance to the front of the property adding value to their home.

Folding Gate and Bi-folding gates for driveways

On some occasions due to the driveway layout or gradient, it is not possible to install a standard swing or sliding electric gate- this could be because there is an incline or not sufficient space for a sliding gate to work.

In this scenario a bi-folding gate could be the ideal solution. Due to minimal leaf swing arc – 25% of effective aperture or 50% for a folding gate, this prevents the gate being in the open position obscuring car park spaces, access doors etc and enables the gates to swing over raising gradients to the secure side of the folding gate, this makes it easy for vehicles to drive around the open gate leaf, reducing the risk of impact damage.

We can design, build and install any folding or bi-folding gate of your choice in timber, metal or wrought iron the gate in the picture was designed and built to compliment the house and garage door. Please note bi-folding or folding gates are significantly more expensive than a standard swing gate installation our prices start at £10,000 . The system requires a hydraulic gate operator for very intensive use and a lot of additional gate safety devices to ensure no one can become trapped or crushed by the folding gates.  The installation of a folding or bi-folding gate system is more involved than other types of electric gate systems as it has to have more design time, civil engineering done at the initial stage and requires precise below ground steel work, custom made hinges and exact geometry worked out- this is certainly not a task for a DIY enthusiast or even an average gate installer.

Would you would like fast opening and closing cycle time? –you got it, 5-10 seconds.  Due the line motion of opening folding gates are also very secure and vertically impossible to force open without exceptional force

Here is a video of a automatic bi-folding gate we designed and fitted in Ascot, Berkshire it uses a tracked based system without the need for rollers. 

We also cater for hi-speed bi folding gates for commercial properties which require a higher duty cycle for busy entrances.
