    Robust and lightweight. Aluminium is a perfect material for the fabrication of gates – robust, stable and lighter than other traditional materials.
    This helps bring a modern twist to the design, allowing for greater flexibility and making them suitable for all types of properties.

    Aluminium gates require almost zero maintenance. Unlike their wooden and steel counterparts, they will not greatly suffer from changing weather conditions. If you wash them down with soapy water and rinse, your gate will look as good as new!

    Suitable for highly saline environments, no special surface treatment required before or after installation.

    Various entry and exit methods are available, such as an intercom call box, keypad requiring a numeric code, access control coded fobs, proximity cards, GSM devices, ANPR, timer units, and even applications compatible with mobile phones.

    Free entry and free exit are also options that require loops buried in the ground on the inside and or outside of the gate; this is commonly known as loop detection and works on the basis of detecting the metal construction of a vehicle.

    the need for automation

    Automated Gates & Barriers

    Automated electronic security systems rely on access control solutions, which include security barriers and gate systems.

    These components are essential for ensuring secure entry and exit points and are typically protected by a range of security measures such as locks, intermittent guard patrols, fixed guard posts, road blockers, rising bollards, contact alarms, CCTV, or a combination of these systems. By utilizing these measures, access control solutions help to ensure the safety and security of a property and its occupants.
