Security Gates

Gates can be the weak link in any security fence design.

They need to prevent unauthorised entry yet allow easy access when you need to move equipment or do any maintenance. Security gates that don’t work the way you need them to can cost you time and money.

Security Gates

A good quality gate not only needs to be tough enough to endure rough weather conditions but may also need to repel determined forced-entry efforts, ramming and just general rough usage. Heavy-duty security gates provide that essential peace of mind.

Protective Fencing is one of Australasia’s leading security gate manufacturers and suppliers, and we have a wide range of gates to suit all security applications.

Gate Types

Gate systems include:

  • Industrial to prevent unauthorised entry to dangerous areas
  • Commercial to protect people from hazardous substances
  • Residential gates to guard against theft and vandalism

Steel is the ideal choice for hard-wearing security gates. Its strength to weight ratio means steel is incredibly strong yet relatively lightweight. Galvanised steel is extremely durable and offers the ultimate in protection.

The Protective range gives you so many options including double, single or pedestrian steel gates with a variety of security options.

Heights

Gate heights range from 900mm up to 4,800mm (including additional security toppings).

Gates can be manufactured to suit a choice of chainwire, security or anti-climb mesh. These gates are available in a range of powder-coated or PVC colour coatings to enable you to create your ideal aesthetic.

You can add security toppings to our gates. These are ideal for where you need to maximise security. Options include:

  • Barbed wire
  • Bulldog spike razor top
  • Concertina razor tape along with anti-tamper screws

 

Single Opening

These are ideal for protecting solar installations, hemp farms, electrical substations, hazardous chemical stores, and other high-security areas.

The option of double or single gates adds flexibility and convenience to your fence and gate designs.

Single

Single gates mean that you only have to open the one gate to allow passage for vehicles or people. A single gate has the advantage of only needing one set of hinges and one latching arrangement.

However, this can also be a problem when you are dealing with openings of up to 4 metres wide, the weight of an extra-wide gate may place additional strain on the hinges and posts and so require more substantial posts and concrete footings.

Double

Double gates offer the convenience of variable opening sizes. For example, you may choose to have vehicle access combined with narrower pedestrian width gates. Double gates place a smaller load on posts and hinges in wide opening scenarios.

The disadvantage of double gates is that you need to install a drop bolt to secure the gates, this can be a point of weakness on gravel roads where high wind and rain can make double gates a little less secure.

Locks

We can supply all our security gate products with lockable latches or closing mechanisms. There are several different options available including Broadhurst locks.

Heavy grade chains and padlocks with hardened (shrouded) steel cases and shackles provide a reasonably high level of security. Any lock with a security grade of 7 or higher is suitable for most applications.

Customised Locks

We can also customise gate locking options with steel lockboxes that prevent anyone from accessing the padlock with cutting tools. These are appropriate for where high levels of security are necessary.

Opening Sizes

Protective fencing provides gates in a wide variety of opening sizes. Single gates range from 900mm to 4,000mm wide. Any of these widths can be used in a double gate configuration allowing for opening widths up to 8,000mm wide.

The opening width will play an essential role in deciding on the size and depth of your gate posts. Don’t skimp in this area of fence design or your gates won’t last the distance.

Opening Options

When you choose a solid reliable gate from the Protective fencing range, you can take advantage of a wide range of opening options.

Swing or Sliding Gates

Gates that swing open or slide allow you to design your gates and fences to suit space requirements. Keep it simple and go with the standard self-opening option or take advantage of innovative technology and add some real convenience to your gate.

Remote

The ability to open your gates using a remote from within the safety of your vehicle increases your security and convenience.

Hinges

A comprehensive range of heavy-duty galvanised steel hinges is available to complement all our gate and post types. You can request a powder-coated colour finish for all our hinges as well (additional cost).

Hinge types include:

  • 2-part interlock hinges with attachment
  • 2-part hinges with attachment
  • Pipe hinge straps

 

Hinges Should Match

It is essential to make sure you choose the correct matching hinge for both post and gate. Two-part interlocking hinges are available to match post sizes ranging from 40NB through to 100NB. Two-part hinges suit pipe sizes 32NB and 40NB whereas strap hinges suit 25NB to 50NB pipes.

We supply gates to match our highly rated Promax 358 security fence range too. These gates come supplied with posts, hinges and locks and provide an exceptionally secure controlled access point. See all our security gates fittings here.

Infrastructure Security

Posts

Protective Fencing can supply all your steel post needs as well, including:

  • Intermediate, double and triple gate posts
  • Top posts and backstays
  • Cranked posts and post clamps
  • Corner clamps, adjustable and straight connectors
  • Rail tees, flanges and post caps

 

Posts are available in standard galvanised finish or powder-coated colour options.

Installation

Installing gate posts correctly is the key to ensuring the durability of your fence and gate system.

It’s important to remember that gates, over time, can exert considerable pressure on gate posts so make sure your posts are set to the correct depth, this will depend on the gate height, width, wind loading, and soil type.

You can learn more about establishing the correct post hole depth here.

Make sure the soil in the bottom of the post hole is solidly compacted so that it can provide a firm footing.

It’s crucial to ensure posts are lined up correctly. Poor alignment can increase the tension on fence lines and gate posts and over the long-term will lead to deformation of the fence.

Avoid Corrosion

Applying epoxy mastic paint to the post 100 or 200mm above and below the ground level line provides additional protection against any water or soil contact creating corrosion issues.

Make sure you use the correct strength concrete (20MPA) and taper the top of the concrete away from the post, this ensures water drains away and doesn’t pool around the post where it could cause corrosion issues.

Don’t forget to sit the post at least 40mm above the base of the concrete footer to prevent contact between the bottom of the post and soil or water.

Nuts & Bolts

Protective Fencing also supplies all the fastener options you may need, including:

  • T Bolts & Cup head bolts and nuts
  • Self-drilling screws
  • Anti-tamper screws
  • Razor tape and mesh fixing clips

Latches

We also carry all the gate latching options you need such as double-gate bows, shoot bolts and drop bolts.

A well-designed and installed steel gate will make your life so much easier. You’ll come to appreciate the enhanced durability and practicality of the Protective Fence range of security gates and posts.
