Automatic Swing Gates

Automatic Swing Gates

The requirement…

SCA Self Storage, approach Smartideas to help design and installed a high end security system for there new 200 storage unit facility in South Yorkshire. With 24/7 access to the storage units SCA required an automated access control system to allow extended opening hours for additional security and convenience.

The solution…

Smart Ideas UK worked closely with SCA Self Storage to design a solution that would meet their requirements. Two high-speed swing gate motors were installed on the double gates and controlled with a Videx GSM intercom system. The digital GSM is the latest development from Videx, employing mobile phone technology to operate automatic gates, doors and remote site installations. Up to 2000 telephone numbers can be stored to take advantage of the dial to open feature which enables callers to dial the digital GSM and release the gate without being charged for the call.

For added safety Smartideas installed resistive end safety edges around the Automatic Swing Gates .The rubber of the safety edge compresses, providing protection for people and objects from crushing should the gate close.

Extra override ACT vandal proof digital keypads were installed to open and close the Automatic Swing Gates.

The feedback…
