Why would you choose a sliding security gate over a swinging gate?

There are many security advantages of choosing to install a sliding security gate to your site which we will look at below. If you are unsure of what solution is right for you our experts are on hand to provide advice and guidance but we will look at some of the benefits of sliding security gates now.

High levels of security:

When thinking of security solutions for your premises sliding security gates are high up there as one of the best. They are much less vulnerable to attacks than swinging gates due to the reinforcement. This is due to access to the weakest points of the gates are reduced and they are far less likely to be able to be opened or damaged with force. You can find out more about the safety testing and regulations of our sliding security gates here.

Can be used on raised surfaces:

Even if the road surface is raised sliding security gates can still be used. This is a major benefit over a swinging gate as they cannot be used with raised surfaces as the surface or the gate can become damaged and also may cause the inability for the gate to open.  If you have an uneven surface speak to one of our specialist advisors who will be able to assess the ground level and advise you on the best sliding security gate for your needs.

Save Space:

We have found that the space saving benefit of sliding security gates is one of the major selling points of our systems. Swinging gates take up much more surface area to open and sliding gates run on a track which saves a lot of space which is a huge benefit to many.

Suit all widths of openings:

If you have a wide area that you require to be covered by your gated security a sliding security gate is usually the best option as you will not require a double gate as you would if you were to choose a swinging gate.
