This single or double leaf sliding gate boasts the latest technology and has been successfully tested for all relevant safety norms (EN and BS). The gate frame is square hollow section steel with a choice of square or round vertical bar infill. Available in a wide range of widths and heights, the cantilever design has no exposed ground track or wheels to get blocked by dirt or snow. This guarantees trouble-free open/close movements and reduces maintenance.
The main gate transport beam is lightweight aluminium, and the complete construction is perfectly counterbalanced to allow easy manual or motor-driven operation. All gate surfaces are extremely robust with high quality galvanized or powder coated finishes (in a wide choice of colours). Ideal for harbour entrances, plus busy industrial and commercial locations where a wide entrance is required.
Under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) it is now mandatory for manufacturers to apply CE marking to any product that is covered by a harmonised European standard (hEN).
Gates are covered by standard BS EN 12604.
Heras has therefore introduced all necessary procedures and practices into their gate manufacture, in order to be able to CE mark every gate that it produces.
Every gate that leaves the Heras factory will have a CE mark plate fixed to the inside edge of the gate which is individual to that gate and allows for full traceability. Heras will also include within the packaging of every gate, the O&M manual (Operations & Maintenance).
Buying a CE marked gate from Heras allows you to have complete peace of mind that every reasonable precaution has been taken to know that the gate is safe, and have the testing and operation evidence trail available should it ever be required.
