Product overview

The SG1500CR gate was first independently physically tested by the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) using an N3 European truck in accordance with the PAS 68 specification (7,500kg weighted vehicle travelling at 80kph) and post-test achieved zero penetration.

The same gate was then crash tested with a 4×4 pickup truck travelling at 80 kph and zero penetration was achieved.

The gate design was aesthetically  enhanced by removing the front two support legs and independently tested by the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) with a US truck (15,000lb truck at travelling at 50 mph) in accordance with the US Standard ASTM F 2656-07 (supersedes DoS SD-STD-02.01 ) and achieved a M50 P1 (zero penetration).

The gate comes with a push-button hold to run control as standard.

The gate can be customised to interface with a wide range of access control equipment to suit specific customer requirements.

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 that all relevant safety systems are included. Where the gates control point is remote from the installation, we strongly recommend the fitting of a recordable CCTV system.
