4. Can my own automation team, automate the gates and if so how?

Unfortunately, the automation of the gates can’t be done by your own team, it must be installed by an authorised installation team.

5. Can we add our own access control after? Will this affect the S2/S3 accreditation?

7. Can I add security toppings?

Yes, any CLD Fencing Systems security topping, including barbed and razor wire, can be added to act as an additional protection.

8. Why swing gates over and against bi-fold and sliding gates?

When looking into swing gates instead of the alternatives of bi-fold and sliding gates there are many positive reasons. When space and perimeter size is restricted, then swing gates are the best option requiring less scope than their counterpart sliding gates. Swing gates are also a cost-effective solution for projects that require budget sensitive systems compared to the alternative bi-folding gates.

9. Can I retro fit automation to other security rated gates, whilst still classing them as certified?

Unfortunately, no, retro fitting the automation to other security gates means they will not be certified.

11. Can the gates be switched to manual by a key holder if required or there is a loss of power?

Yes, in an event of a loss of power, there is an override key for the gates meaning they can be opened manually. On the gate system, there is a slide bar so the gate can be locked in an event of failure.

12. Can I obtain a service and maintenance agreement to support the gates long term?

Yes, we can offer you a service and maintenance agreement to support your gates long term.
