Bar Gates & Palisade Type Fencing
Open-spaced bar gates and fences offer a much higher level of
visible perimeter security than walls, as intruders are unable to hide behind
such fencing without the possibility of being seen from the interior and the
exterior of the property. We also manufacture wooden gates. Timber is secured to
a steel frame, and varnished prior to delivery.
a wide selection of
to enhance the aesthetics of the finished structure,
and/or spike-rails fitted horizontally across the top of gates and perimeter
panels, making it more difficult for intruders wanting to climb over.
products will be hot-dip galvanized for rust protection, and in the event of
on-site welding where necessary, ( repairs to old gates, etc, ) the weld points
will be treated with appropriate anti rust & corrosion agents. We are also able
to have your products powder coated if required, or painted to suit your
property colour scheme.
Sliding Gate Automation - we DO NOT install
swing gate automation ...
We install ET Systems 500kg 12-volt and ET
Systems ACDC sliding gate
supplied with 2 remote controls, ( extra remotes on request ). Sand, lawn, etc,
is very efficiently kept off the path of gate travel in our unique
track housing where appropriate.
Motors can be programmed to close automatically after a pre-set lapse of time. E
T Systems motors can be operated even during power outages due to an
incorporated battery. The motor will be connected to AC Power for the built-in
battery charger to keep the battery loaded.
Infra-red safety beams can also be installed and connected to the motor, and
serves the purpose of stopping / preventing the gate from closing whenever an
obstruction is detected in the path of the beams. An example of this is when a
vehicle is still in the path of the gate travel, due to waiting for passing
traffic before proceeding to drive through. While the vehicle (or a child, etc) obstructs the
beams, THE GATE WILL NOT CLOSE !
Intercoms & Electric Locks
intercom system can be installed, which can
be linked to operate an
electric pedestrian gate lock, OR open and
close a driveway gate, via the interior handset.
