What is an industrial gate?

To combat against the risk of external thefts, such as trespassers and burglars, businesses are encouraged to enhance their security as much as possible to ensure the safety of staff, visitors and customers. 

Industrial gates provide unmatched levels of security for all businesses, and with a selection of designs to choose from, you won’t have any trouble finding one to best suit your needs. With the ability to control who can access your premises, the risk of being a target of criminal activity is minimised.

How do industrial gates work?

Sliding security gates

Constructed from high-grade aluminium for optimum robustness and being able to withstand rust, automatic sliding security gates are designed with longevity in mind. Being the perfect secure entrance solution for larger industrial and commercial environments, sliding security gates are equipped with an electric motor that allows them to open smoothly along the tracks automatically. And, thanks to their tracking system and drive motor, they’ll be impossible to open when closed - making your site all the more secure. 

With the option to install an access control system to ensure that you’re aware of who’s entering and exiting your premises, your industrial gate can be operated simply through a keypad, voice or video intercom access, or remote control fob to name a few examples. Depending on your preferences, you’ll be able to find an operational method that works best for your business. 

Bi-folding gates

For premises that are limited on space, a bi-folding gate is the perfect security solution. Opening at twice the speed of traditional industrial gate designs, they’re ideal for businesses who value quick access. 

These industrial gates work to maximise the available area by opening inwardly and overlapping themselves, and when complete with an access control system and additional security measures - such as electric fencing, traffic lights and warning sirens - your business will remain secure at all times. 

Industrial swing gates

As opposed to sliding gates, industrial swing gates work by rotating around on hinges on gate posts at either side of your workplace’s entrance, rather than wheels running along a track. Being custom-made to fit your precise requirements, and complete with a powder-coat finish, this gate’s design will offer optimum security, without compromising on aesthetics. 

Depending on your business’s needs, our industrial swing gates have a variety of programme modes for you to choose from. Alongside offering a number of extras for added security - such as traffic lights, warning sirens and anti-climb spikes - your gate can be set to stay closed for a set period of time. Alternatively, you can allow free entry and exit for dispersing higher volumes of traffic. 

Manual sliding gates

Being a cost-effective and energy-saving solution, security certainly isn’t compromised when it comes to the manual sliding gate. Using an internal roller mechanism to ensure smooth movement, and designed with 6mm thick walls, this industrial gate is able to withstand high impact forces, alongside providing a safe mechanism for manual opening.
