With over 30 years experience in the industry Barrier Components have few equals when it comes to sourcing, testing and stocking gate hardware.

The list of products inlcudes cantilever and tracked gate systems, bi-folds and swing gate hardware, aimed at offering a range to suit a multitude of applications.

Now the Purfleet based company has now added a commercial bi-fold kit capable of accommodating gates up to 7 metres wide and 400kg, a step forward after the introduction three years ago of a trackless folding gate hardware solution, a bi-folding kit designed to cope with openings between 1.9m and 10m wide.

“The compact kit can be automated, even using retrofit swing arm units and is quick and easy to install,” said managing director Graham Walker. “There are two kits available, one for single leaf and one for double leaves and they comprise a central profile, column joint, leaf joint and hinges. The kits exclude the pivots, which are specified to carry the weight of the system ordered.

Last year the company introduced the Radius (pictured below right) product which enables gates to be tracked 90 degrees around corners to meet moungting demand for space saving solutions.

“Cantilever gate systems are a leading solution for high traffic, high security applications when controlling both pedestrian and vehicle access. The main benefit is that it can span openings of up to 18m in length with a single gate panel yet require no floor mounted tracks that are susceptible to both damage and a build up of debris,” he said.

The range from Barrier Components includes the new light duty 800 series option that’s ideal for both residential and light commercial applications with a maximum weight capacity of 300kg and a 5 metre gate width. A 900, 1000, 2000 and 3000 series is also available dictated by gate weight and width requirements on the job.

All Barrier Components cantilever gate options come in a kit format for ease of specification, consisting of roller units, guide rollers, end stops and roller guide unit. The track is sold separately in 3 or 6 metre lengths.

“For the ultimate in security the Guardian Cantilever gate system uniquely holds its strength
and remains on track, despite attack, even when the gate is partially open. The system has been tested to CE standards with a plan to gain PAS 68/69 approval. Here Barrier Components offer two kits that cater for gates up to either 6000mm or 12000mm wide respectively,” said Walker.

Completing the gate hardware range, Barrier Components also offer a wide range of tracked sliding hardware including gate wheels, guide rollers, gate stops and rail profiles.

New telescopic solutions are available for cantilever, guardian and tracked systems significantly reducing the amount of space required adjacent to the opening with a host of accessories including handles, locks, pad bolts and strike plates available.

The gate hardware range is highlighted in a new brochure that can be downloaded on line at www.barrier-components.co.uk or Tel: 01708 891515.
