Bi-folding gates are often referred to as speed gates and are generally used where there is a high levels of vehicle traffic and where it is important that the gate closes after each individual vehicle passes through and then quickly opens again for the next one such as a secure staff car park.
Bi-fold gates can offer many advantages over swing gates and sliding gates in certain situations.
Bi-folding gates are fast acting and can open and close in less time than a swing or sliding gate. This is useful where security requirements dictate that an entrance should only remain open for a minimum period of time.
Bi-folding gates take up much less space than conventional swing gates or sliding gates which is useful when space is tight.
