The brilliance of Bi Fold Gates revolutionises the Houndshill Shopping Centre

Expert Security UK were approached to design a solution to fix the problem of the lack of physical security on the loading bay entrance at Houndshill Shopping Centre. We installed security upgrades to their site, optimising delivery access as well as increasing security for pedestrians in the built-up area with a bi-folding gate.

The area around Houndshill Shopping Centre is a busy high street in the centre of Blackpool with a high volume of pedestrian and vehicle traffic. In these circumstances, and with the lack of additional manoeuvring space, there was no room to install traditional automatic sliding gates. Additionally, the existing vehicle barrier did not prevent pedestrians from accessing this area, presenting an increased security risk to the bay and a safety issue for pedestrians.

Bi-Folding Gates from Expert are the height of Speedy Security

Expert devised the perfect solution in installing a Bi-Folding Speed Gate. These types of bi-folding gates offer a fast-acting physical gate and prevent access from unauthorised vehicles and people.

All bi-fold gates supplied by Expert are manufactured using RHS steel frames and CHS tubular steel infills. A wide range of alternate infills is available to suit customers’ requirements and match adjoining fencing designs. If required, spiked tops, warning lights, and sirens can be incorporated into bifold gates.

Bi-fold gates in the form of trackless speed gates are the ideal solution where the speed of opening and closing is essential or where space is at a premium. Bi-fold gates from Expert are designed with high security in mind and put safety as paramount. The gates have a hinge between the leaves, which further assists in the very fast operation speeds. Our gates use a superior integrated control panel and encoder, which allows for a fast, smooth, direct drive action. As such, bi-fold gates from Expert are more sophisticated than other models on the market, offering the best security while providing ample safety for both authorised personnel and bystanding pedestrians.

The system is controlled by a GSM intercom allowing authorised deliveries to enter the loading bay area when required. Customers can be sure that all our security systems, including our bi-folding gates, are built to the highest quality and strength and that at Expert Security, we make sure to tailor a solution to fit any and all your needs, including turnstiles.
