Commercial Gates and Gate Automation
As a commercial gate and electric gate automation specialist we design, manufacture, install, maintain and repair gates and electric gate automation.

At Portcullis Gate Automation we have no bias towards sliding gates because we also design, manufacture, install and maintain high quality hinged gates. So for us it’s simply a question of which of the two is most appropriate for any individual project.
Although many local factors dictate whether sliding or hinged gates are right for a specific application, there are a number of basic criteria which can be applied.
Portcullis Electric Swing Gates offer a cost effective solution to controlling access to various types of sites.
Portcullis will design the correct gate for the application required, as the swing gate is not always the perfect choice.
Swing gates are best suited to sites where an average gate size of 6m wide maximum by 3m high maximum is required with an average opening speed of 20 to 30 seconds. Larger sizes are available if required but changing to a sliding or Bi Folding gate may be a better design.
Commercial Bi-Folding Gates
Portcullis offer a range of trackless Bi folding speed gates that open at typically twice the speed of a traditional swing gate of the same size which ensures a fast throughput of traffic whilst maintaining security. Our free surveying service ensures a easy and efficient transition from design to installation.
