Why choose TI for electric gates for colleges and schools?

From brand new school security gates, to upgrades and maintenance take-overs for an improved service, we have the technology and the technical know-how to give you the very best experience…

  • Sliding or swing electric gates

    we’ll assess your site in order to identify whether your site layout would better suit a swing or sliding electric gate.

  • Extensive span options

    our school entrance gates can span openings of up to 20 meters (2 x 5m gates), so we can cater for any requirement, with gates manufactured to your bespoke measurements.

  • Retro-fit automation

    we can automate existing entrance gates with either a flush-mounted underground motor, or a surface mounted motor fitted onto the outside surface of the gate.

  • Safety edges

    health and safety are essential, especially on school or college grounds, so we’ll ensure your gates have safety edges to remove any potential trapping hazards. We can also install emergency stop buttons, strobe lights and ‘magic eye’ photo cells to detect any obstructions.

     

  • Anti-flooding & equal power distribution

    we fit our motors in the top/middle of the gate to prevent motor failure risk from flooding, and to ensure increased performance and longevity.

    during your free survey, we’ll assess the hinges on any existing gate to ensure their strength is suitable for any automation upgrade.

  • Manual override

    our manual override systems are CE approved and offer additional safety assurance.

    these detect when vehicles are present to reduce likelihood of the gate opening onto a vehicle, and also to provide an auto-exit option.
