What Is The Vulcan RCS Cantilever Sliding Gate?

The Vulcan RCS Cantilever Sliding Gate is a heavy duty security gate which is able to slide away without a track to allow access for vehicles and personnel. It can be installed alongside the existing fence line to increase security. It can stop a 7,500kg vehicle travelling at 64kph (40mph), completely stopping the vehicle in just 4.5 metres. This gate system ensures security of your site as well as safety of workers compliant with British standards.

The Vulcan RCS Cantilever Sliding Gate has been extensively impact and crash tested to ensure it’s reliability as a security measure. It is tested to the standards of BSI PAS 68: V/7500(N2)/64/90:4.5/13.1 and IWA 14-1: 2013 V/7200[N2A]/64/90:4.7. Ensure the safety of your site and personnel.

How Do Cantilever Sliding Gates Work?

The cantilever system that operates The Vulcan RCS Cantilever Sliding Gate operates differently to standard sliding gates. It is supported by rollers that allow it to open and close instead of a track laid on the ground. The gate is fully suspended from the ground with a small clearance. This system allows gates to be located on rough or uneven terrain that could not support a track making it perfect for any work site.

The Vulcan RCS Cantilever Sliding Gate operates using a 3-phase motor giving greater control of the movement of the gate. This allows control of the gate speed when it engages the pin within the post, preventing damage or wear to the internal mechanism. It can be run using battery or manual power in case of power outage giving increased reliability.

Key Features of The Vulcan RCS Cantilever Sliding Gate

  • 10 Metre clearance at opening.
  • Lightweight aluminium construction allowing smooth operation of the cantilever system.
  • Shallow mount foundation technology from ATG access giving security and convenience when setting up.
  • 3-phase motor and built-in inverter gives complete control of gate movement, gate slows Dual height photocells, CAT 3 safety edges, and emergency stop button as standard prevent entrapment, crushing and shearing risks.
  • Battery or manual operation is available to ensure security is maintained in case of power outage.
  • Finished with RAL black powder coat as standard but can be finished in any standard RAL colour to suit client requirements.

This product is unique because it combines two security standards PAS 68 crash-rated vehicle standard and LPS1175 standard. 

LPS 1175 is an LPCB certification used to test the resistance to unauthorised access offere by physical security products. LPS 1175 considers the resistance of security equipment to forced entry based on the size and type of tools used and the time that assailants will risk spending on attempting to gain entry.

In accounting for these varying parameters, physical security products are tested and rated to LPS 1175 according to the delay they provide against different levels of forced entry. As a Loss Prevention Standard, LPS 1175 historically grew around the needs of the insurance industry for which it remains a trusted and often preferred marque of third-party approval.

Together with its growing specification, for many areas of critical national infrastructure, the standard continues to grow in relevance by being sensitive to the broadest range of risks to assets and property encountered day-to-day.
