'Rapide' Bi-Folding Speed Gate

Product Summary

Eagle is one of the UKs leading providers of PAS68 & IWA14-1 tested gates, blockers and barriers with over 25 years experience of designing and delivering practical, cost effective and quality British solutions to thousands of organizations. The Eagle \'Rapide\' Trackless Bi-Folding Speed Gate comprises a unique drive mechanism to control the opening and closing of a bi folding set of gates. This mechanism converts and controls both leaves producing a smooth but fast action. This unique design allows the gate to operate without the use of a bottom or top track, thus eliminating any height restrictions and large tracks in the road.


On activation, the gates open in a quick but safe folding action. The Eagle Bi-Folding Speed Gate is the ideal solution where site has high traffic flow or indeed security is a priority. The gates can integrate to any access control system, can be part of a security network or operate stand alone. They are extremely robust with built in hydraulic locking and offer a lifetime running cost that makes it one of the best commercially viable gates you can install. The gates can be integrated to traffic management systems or Eagle can tailor a design to suit your requirements.
