Bi-Folding Speed Gates

Bi-folding speed gates are the best choice where space is limited. As they do not require a track to be opened, they can be opened quickly as their name suggest. Emergency service vehicles and any sites who need security but also need a fast-opening gate can benefit from this type of installation.

Turnstile Entrance Gates

If you are looking to control pedestrian access, turnstiles are a great option. Commonly seen at football stadiums, public transport stations, theme parks and entertainment venues.

They ensure controlled one person at a time entry, especially useful if you need to pay or show a ticket before entering a destination. The access can be manual, power-assisted, or even by showing a valid ticket or bar code to the reader.


Vehicle Height Restriction Barriers

Vehicle height restriction barriers are put in place to only allow smaller cars into a given location. This can be due to safety or low ceilings in a car park or limited parking availability for large vehicles for example.
