Portcullis works with the Port of London Authority to carry out pre-planned preventative gate maintenance at their site in Gravesend.
About the Project
The maintenance agreement consists of five commercial gates, three-vehicle and two pedestrian gates, with a twice a year implemented visit to keep them working and in optimal condition.
In addition to our maintenance agreement, we also installed a commercial electrical gate for access control to the jetty entrance of the dockyard.
The main option was an electric sliding gate installation. They are very effective for high-risk commercial locations and can be operated on either a cantilevered or tracked system. Particularly when electric they are difficult to open and are a strong physical deterrent to protect businesses, even out of work hours.
What We Installed
Due to the width of the entrance to the dockyard, approximately nine metres across, installing a single large electric sliding gate was not viable. It would have taken too long to open and close, and required an extra fifteen metres width on one side to accommodate the gate in a fully open position.
Instead of that, we worked with the Port of London Authority to come up with the solution of bi-parting electric sliding gates fully automated, to meet the most recent health and safety legislation.
We completed the installation in four working days, with help from the Port of London Authority to lay the reinforced concrete foundation. This is just one of many projects where we work in partnership with our customer.
If you require electric gate installations, electric gate maintenance or electric gate repairs then please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are here to help.
