We were commissioned by our client to supply and install a pair of Aluminium Drive Gates to their premises in Corby, Northamptonshire. The Aluminum Drive Gates replaced wooden gates that had begun to deteriorate. The new aluminium drive gates matched the original design of the wooden gates. We hung the new aluminium gates towards the back edge of the gate piers to reduce the number of required sensitive edges.
We supplied and installed Beninca 24v gate automation with the inherent obstacle detection to the aluminium drive gates. Front and rear infrared photocells were installed to prevent the gates from closing onto a vehicle. The gates were then force tested to ensure they comply with the current DHF guidelines.
A GSM intercom system manufactured and supplied by Telguard was installed. The intercom system rings through to the landline, should no one answer the landline after a period of time, the unit automatically dials through to a secondary number, normally a mobile. The user can instigate a two way conversation with the intercom and give a command to open the aluminium drive gates via their telephone handset. The gate intercom system also houses a keypad to allow coded entry should a radio transmitter not be to hand. An internal keypad was also installed for the same reason.
