Bi-folding Gates, Speed Gates Are Fast and Safe Access
Bi-fold gates, or speed gates as they are also called, offer advantages over swing gates and sliding gates in certain applications. Bi-folding gates are often used where there is continual or high levels of vehicle traffic, plus where it is also important that the gate closes after each individual vehicle passes through and then quickly opens again for the next one - so perhaps a staff car park entrance.
Procter's 100 years plus of innovative design, skilled manufacture and careful installation is what underpins our offer for the relatively new automatic bi-folding speed gates. As with all gate types, Procter have started with the basic principle and then refined and developed it to ensure both reliable and safe operation. The opening and closing speed of Procter's bi-folding gates can be as low as 10 seconds, though this will of course depend on other factors and in particular the size of the entrance span the gate needs to cover.
