Description

Electrically operated bi-folding gates suitable for car park entrances, especially where room is limited.

Features and benefits:

  • Suitable for securing car park entrances whilst also providing the maximum amount of ventilation necessary to allow exhaust fumes to escape.
  • The leaf design is available in a standard format or purpose-made to suit individual clients’ requirements, to interface with and complement external building cladding features.
  • Simple operation, avoiding the high maintenance costs associated with cables, springs, bottom tracks etc.
  • Particularly suited to situations where side-, head- or back-room rule out rolling, overhead, hinged or sliding gates.
  • Gates are sideways opening - the leading edges are in constant view and therefore less prone to damage from vehicles passing through the opening.

Operating:

- Manufacturer's standard:

The gates are electrically operated by two single phase motors mounted at the top of each gate with a common control panel and open/ close/ stop push buttons mounted adjacent to the opening. Disconnection for emergency manual operation is provided in the event of power failure.
