In January 2015 Portcullis Leeds branch also automated a 12 meter cantilever electric swing gate in Haywood, Manchester.    The gate was fitted with fully resistive safety edges, was completely compliant and CE marked.

The client, a major distribution company in the North were delighted with the end product, the ease of the automation and the expertise of the Portcullis engineers. The Electric Cantilever sliding gate also had mesh infills to avoid any accidental trapping in the gate whilst moving.

The expansion of the Portcullis Leeds branch into their new offices gives the team a central location for convenient local and national coverage.
