Vertical lift gates and automatic gate operators
Advantage of vertical lift gate
Vertical lift gates can be used in any setting, especially on sites where there is insufficient space outside of the gate opening for a swing or slide gate to retract without hitting an obstacle. Automatic sliding and cantilever gates require long side areas, and even vertical pivot gates can’t be installed without side space. Barrier gates don’t offer adequate security in many situations. In all of these situations, an automatic vertical lift gate and operator may be the answer. A counterweight and continuous loop drive system make the gate move up and down quickly and smoothly, even in high usage situations.
The vertical lift gates are designed for larger applications where extremely large vehicles such as trucks and buses are present and there is no room to install a slide gate or swing gate. The vertical lift gate raises to a full 16 high opening in as quickly as 8 seconds and up to 80 foot wide gate panels allow for efficient and quick response for larger vehicles. They come in a variety of continuous duty operational models. Many Federal, State and local governments use this form of entry gate systems at mini-storage facilities, residential estates and gated communities. A standard vertical lift gate can vary in length from 24 to 26 feet and in height up to 8 feet.
Lift gate choices vary widely from arched estate to chain link styles in steel or aluminum. All of the safety and entry devices that you find with sliding or swinging gate types are readily available with lift gates. Custom and solar gates are also available. All safety features including Fire and Police Entry systems work well with these gates. Lift Gates can be UL 325 rated and all access control systems are compatible as well as vehicle loop detection and safety systems. The gates themselves can be equipped with many various materials to include anti climb material.
Reliability, safety, security and speed of operation stand pointyour best choice for security. In addition to these benefits, the low maintenance and high reliability of operation for this type of gate system proves a plus that is tough to pass up when considering the needs of an estate or high volume gated community. Again the only minus point is the initial one time cost to purchase and install these units. Our project managers will help you determine the perfect vertical lift gate for your commercial needs.
