ATG Access launches “industry-first” long-span swing gate

ATG ACCESS has expanded its physical security portfolio with the launch of the Vulcan long-span gate, the “industry’s first” manual swing gate with a 12-metre clear opening to be successfully impact-tested to withstand impact from a 7,200 kg vehicle travelling at 80 kph.

The gate, which has been impact tested to the IWA 14-1 standard, is ideal for securing large width entrances into Critical National Infrastructure locations or busy crowded spaces.

The Vulcan long-span gate is manufactured in aluminium, ensuring that it’s lightweight, while high-tech synthetic fibres help to deliver what’s described as an “impressive stopping power”.

Iain Moran, director at ATG Access, informed Security Matters: “Our truly innovative, constantly evolving range of products is the result of the hard work of our engineering team and continual investment in R&D and certification and impact tests. We pride ourselves on being a security partner, not just a supplier, working closely alongside key security consultants and the Government to develop bespoke security solutions that the market really needs.”

Moran added: “No other 12 metre gate provides this level of protection. We’re really pleased to have been able to solve another real-world security challenge.”

Simple pin mechanism

The new gate is locked with a simple pin mechanism and supplied as standard with a gate catch post to lock the product into the ‘open’ position as needed, always ensuring safety in operation.

The steel posts are hot dip galvanised as standard to BS EN ISO 1461 and secured within removable sockets, facilitating easy removal of the gate should this be required. Installation may be permanent, or the gate and posts may be placed in storage and deployed when necessary, providing flexibility for venues.

A variety of finishes are available, while the gate arm may also be fitted with signage or advertising panels, providing potential additional revenue streams for event organisers as an added benefit.
