Bi-fold gates – or speed gates – are designed to provide an effective combination of access control, safety, speed and operational reliability. They provide secure vehicle entry points within a perimeter or boundary, and can improve business continuity and traffic flow for retail depots, logistics centres, emergency services stations and car parks where immediate closure of the site after entry is important.
Heras’ folding gates enable reliable and controlled vehicle access when space, speed, security and safety matters. They open and close in just a few seconds for fast and continuous operation, and lock securely to prevent unauthorised vehicle or pedestrian access.
Heras developed its sGate speed gate range as a functional solution to combine the opening speed of a barrier with the security levels of a gate. The gates are ideal for situations where the extra space required for conventional hinged or sliding gates is not available.
Various versions and track options are available to suit different environments. While some are suited to restricted opening heights such as an underground car park, others are reinforced to facilitate frequent use by heavy vehicles. The trackless bi-folding gate is perfect for sites needing unrestricted height access for large trucks and lorries. Heras sGate range includes:
The range is durable and uses low-maintenance components to ensure seamless continuity. All surfaces are extremely robust with high quality galvanized and double powder coated finishes in a wide choice of colours.
sGates are available in a range of widths and heights and each is made to measure using extremely robust, high quality, but low maintenance, materials. Customers can choose from a variety of finishes, colours and components to ensure the gates meet every security need, while complementing the surrounding environment or branding. Extra safety devices such as loop detection, traffic or flashing lights and sirens can be added.
Heras manufactures each gate and pre-assembly means that installation is quick and easy, reducing the risk of damage and speeding up time to be fully operational. To make life easy for customers, Heras offers expert and safe installation services across all of its solutions.
All Heras folding gates are extremely robust and have been rigorously tested to meet relevant industry standards and certifications including (depending on model) safety EN 13241, CPNI, PAS 68 and LPS 1175.
LPS security ratings are important because they show how effective a perimeter protection solution is at delaying an attack. Approval is tested and awarded by The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB), which is recognised by governments and regulatory authorities globally. Accredited products provide proven, demonstrable protection which is recognised by insurance companies through reduced premium costs.
Heras will calculate the price of individual bi-fold gates for each customer site. Heras guarantees an affordable and competitive price.
All Heras gates integrate seamlessly with most fence lines and other Heras perimeter security solutions, such as pedestrian gates, barriers and bollards.
Full pre-assembly perfect solution for sGate installation
When BASF opened its global state-of-the-art cucumber breeding centre in Nunhem, Netherlands, it needed a secure gate to protect against intruders, and ensure ease of entry for authorised vehicles. The project had tight time constraints, so Heras pre-assembled the SGate at its factory so that it could be installed quickly to meet the tight deadline, while ensuring quality.
