Commercial electric gates are generally used for controlling access to a secured area and as a deterrent to burglars. We are Scotland’s premier manufacturer and installer of high quality electric and automated commercial gates.
There are various factors which influence the type of commercial electric gate suitable for your premises. Is the ground level surrounding the entrance, how much maneuvering space is available for vehicles, and how wide is the entrance? We have a wealth of experience installing commercial electric gates on uneven or sloping ground, and more complex projects with numerous vehicle and pedestrian entrances.
Electric commercial gates can be operated using a variety of access control devices including digital keypads, card readers, intercom systems, CCTV systems and vehicle tag readers. It’s common for the same card reader used to access the gate to be used for also accessing the building. Repairing electric gates throughout Glasgow, Edinburgh & Scotland.

In a commercial application, sliding gates tend to be manufactured in metal as this improves security and prevents would be burglars gaining access by crashing through it.
