Faster than fast.
Bi-Folding gates are a convenient alternative for properties with limited space, where swing and sliding gates are inapplicable, but the site still requires security.
BGB’s automated bi-folding gates are popular with commercial properties that require quick filtering of traffic at the entry and exit and the advantage of increased security, opening at twice the speed of traditional swing gates.
BGB installs bi-folding gates in a variety of sizes and materials, to fit with the aesthetic of the commercial site and its security requirements. Our surveyor can clarify and recommend the correct size and best material choice for the individual site.
We can supply bi-folding gates that fold one side only, dependent on the site requirements or standard bar in-fill installations. BGB will install bi-folding gates using a three-phase motor, worm and wheel gearbox with a direct-drive shaft connected to the gate. All components are galvanised or zinc-plated steel.
They are rated for 100% duty rated i.e. continuous operation. The gates are supplied with a programmable logic control board which is mounted in the main pillar of the gate, to allow for integration with existing access control systems. As with all our gates, they are installed with dual height photocells and can also have spiked tops, warning lights and sirens for added security.
They have an average opening time of seven seconds and are incredibly convenient
The quick operation and durability of bi-folding gates make them the perfect solution for commercial properties with a high percentage of traffic moving in and out of the premises.
This means they are very easy to maintain and have no height restrictions to where they can be installed.
