Product overview

Manufactured by engineers with a wealth of experience in the fields of holistic security design principles, the FB6 Garrison Gate is a highly dependable security product. Designed to withstand extreme aggressive attacks while maintaining a pedestrian secure environment.

Where the gate is fully clad, the operator must have clear visibility of both sides of the gate before operating. If the control point is remote from the installation, we strongly recommend the fitting of safety systems as well as a recordable CCTV system.

The gate comes with a push-button hold to run control as standard but can be customised to interface with a wide range of access control equipment to suit specific customer requirements.

Please note this is a specialist high security product and is designed for use with vehicles only and a full site risk assessment must be carried out at design stage to ensure all relevant safety systems are included.

All ballistic protection gates manufactured and supplied outside the UK are subject to a project specific export licence being granted by the UK Government.
