Trackless Bi-Folding Speed Gates | Bi Fold Gates | Zaun Fencing Ltd

Automatic Trackless Bi-Folding Speed Gates

Zaun’s trackless bi-folding speed gates are the ideal solution for where the speed is essential. Or where space is at a premium.

Bi-Folding speed gates designed with high security in mind. Gates manufactured with a post with a bi-folding leaf attached. The gates have a hinge between the leafs which further assists in very fast operation speeds.

Unlike other bi-folding speed gates, this does not require a track either in the ground or overhead to fold the leaf. This gate uses a unique folding system. Trackless bi-folding speed gate leaf sections with fully welded assemblies. The leaf frames are constructed of CHS and RHS sections.

Featuring an integrated control panel and encoder which allows for a fast and smooth direct drive action. Designed to typically open at more than twice the speed of traditional swing gates of the same size. This ensures a fast throughput of traffic whilst maintaining the security of the site.

Available with your choice of in-fill either with vertical bars and/or other welded mesh to suit the fence line. All available in almost any RAL colour to suit the local environment.

Typically a bi-folding speed gate system consists of either a single unit of one post, one bi-folding leaf. Spanning up to 3.5 metres. On wider openings typically up to 7 metres span a pair of opposite handed units (a bi-parting pair) need to be used. In the centre of the roadway a receptor plate is required to receive the leading edge rollers when the gate reaches the fully closed position.

The operation of the torque drive motor, controlled by a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) based unit located within the associated control cabinet.

Safety of Trackless Bi-Folding Speed Gates

The bi-folding method of gate operation requires considerably less power to operate than conventional swing gates and also has less wind effect, combined with the unique motor drive results in a relatively lower powered and thus safer drive.

All bi folding speed gate systems come complete with a through photo beam system between posts. Additional photo beams can be added for extra protection. The leading edges of the leaves also fitted with electrical rubber safe edges which, if in contact with an obstruction will stop the operation of the gate.

All installations need to also include vehicle detection loop systems. Traffic signals also recommended to control traffic and reduce tailgating problems.
