Around the corner sliding gate | Unique electric gate solutions

Many clients, particularly in London want an electric gate system to secure their car and property but their driveway has limited space for access. Electric gates are not permitted to swing outwards towards a public highway and a standard sliding gate would require too much space to open, so often, the best solution can be found by installing a round the corner sliding gate.

Renzland Powergates Ltd can offer clients a custom made round the corner sliding gate system which affords clients benefit of excellent utilisation of space, increased security, not protruding over a property boundary line whilst enhancing the value and saleability of a property.

The round the corner gate will conveniently and quietly slide along the side of the boundary line not obscuring any valuable parking spaces. Safety is assured due to safety edges, sensors and light curtains. We would also recommend if the gate system is not linked to acces control should be operated on a hold to run basis. The round the corner sliding gates can be integrated to CCTV, lighting and access control system if needed.

We are able to offer clients a large range of finishes- both timber and metal gates that “bend” around corners, while ensuring they are aesthetically pleasing and affording prestige.

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.

Electric Folding Gate and Automatic Bi-folding gates

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. If you have a property in London, Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire, Buckinghamshire or Essex and would like free advice or a quotation for a folding or bi-folding electric gates we are one of the very best gate installation companies in country, please contact us today to find out why.
