The double leaf gate had many issues that needed to be resolved. The ram and the safety edges were now completely faulty and no longer able to function properly. The existing gates now were structurally unsuitable. The automation was also no longer fit for purpose and was beyond economic repair.
The gate and the automation needed to be replaced. Many of the fittings, posts, cylinders, and mounting frames were either ineffective or damaged and needed to be swapped for new parts.
A turnkey solution was provided for the client. Replacement double leaf gates and gate posts were designed and manufactured, after which the existing gates were decommissioned and disposed of offsite. The replacement gates were erected promptly, with our bespoke hydraulic automation system installed afterwards. The hydraulic system complies with the current regulations for gate automation systems and is 100% duty rated.
Breezemount’s engineers have completed the Gate Safety Assured course by the DHF and the Gate Safe diploma. The client was able to feel peace of mind knowing they were buying into a highly qualified security installer who are guaranteed to follow all current regulations and guidelines.
Each gate is force tested before handed over to the client.
Our engineers discussed the best course of action with the client and agreed on the improvements to be made. The new double leaf gates are now robust and sturdy to ensure long life and durability. All fittings were attached before transport to the site, meaning that no on-site welding was required.
