Steel Gates

Commercial and Industrial Steel Gates

Steel Gates and Metal Barriers

At Frontline Automation, we have worked with a considerable number of commercial firms and organisations in the South.

Finish

To prevent corrosion to our gate frames, we always use the following process:
The frame will be Grit blasted to SA2.5, hot zinc spray to 50 micron, pre-heat and etch before being polyester powder coated to a 50 micron minumum. Where a gate leaf is too large to be powdercoated, a two pack polyurethane paint finish will be used. Standard RAL colours are available, and would usually be applied at a 30% gloss level unless requested otherwise. A wide range of colours are available on request.
Galvanised finish also available.
Safety Controls

BS-EN13241-1 is the safety standard for installation, testing and ongoing compliance of automatic gate, door and barrier systems. The standard has been in force in the UK since February 2008 and ALL new gate systems installed should comply with the standard.  In short, the standard is designed to protect you, the end user, from risks associated with entrapment between parts of a moving swing or sliding gate. The standard covers both commercial and residential systems and stipulates the following:

1. A swing (hinged) or sliding gate, when colliding with an obstruction, must exert a force of less than 400N before the drive unit stops due to detection of an obstacle.

2. The gate must then reverse to safely clear the obstruction within 0.75 seconds.

3. The entire leading edge of a swing or sliding gate, up to a height of 2.5m, must be fitted with an active obstacle detection system.

4. The obstacle detection system must be tested and accredited to another standard, BS-EN1760-2 that governs quality, durability and failure monitoring, to ensure that the gate will not function unless the safety system is in good working order.
