Aremco’s simple but effective mild steel robust Swinging Gate Barrier complete with Latch Post for locking gate in the closed position, is suitable for locations or situations where a fully automatic barrier, gate entry system or fencing is either not necessary of cost effective.
This Gate can also be locked in the open position by means of an additional Latch Post (extra cost).
The Gates swings open to 180 degrees.
Up to 6M available. To span an area any larger than 6M, we highly recommend 2 Gates along with a Central Removable Latch Post.
On site assembly required, fully detailed installation instructions are supplied.
Bespoke sizes are also available, please contact us for further information.
THIS IS AN IDEAL SOLUTION FOR CERTAIN AREAS THAT ARE TARGETED BY FLY TIPPERS OR THE TRAVELLING COMMUNITY.
The Swinging Gate can be used in any location where there is a need to manage vehicle entry. It is perfect for use at schools, medical facilities, residential areas, parking garages, car parks, and businesses forecourts.
This Swinging Gate is available in many colours,manufactured from mild steel square hollow section construction throughout and is based upon a rigid triangular form, complete with strengthening struts.
The gate swings on a square sleeve (90 degrees in either direction), mounted on strong adjustable hinges for ease of movement and fitting.
* Maximum width available is 6 metres for a single span, anything wider than this we recommend the use of two individual gates with a central removable latch post
* Two gates can be locked centrally by use of a removable latch post (for larger spans)
* Recommended height of top beam above ground 1100mm
* Gates are supplied with 1 Latch Post, an additional latch post can be ordered for locking the gate in the open position,or alternatively, should you not have the space for an additional Latch Post, we can manufacture a wall mounted latch.
* The gates are locked by padlock - supplied.
* Our standard gates all come as build in versions,which we highly recommend for sturdiness, floor mounted versions are available at an additional cost.
Our gates are measured from the outside of the hanging post to the outside of the latch post.
***As a safety feature, we strongly recommend that you purchase and install an additional latch post for a single leaf gate, or 2 additional latch posts for a double leaf gate, so that you can securely lock the gate in its open position, to prevent the gate leaf or gate leaves swinging back into vehicles or pedestrians.**

The basic specification for hot dip galvanized coatings on iron and steel articles is defined by a single standard, EN ISO 1461 ‘Hot dip galvanized coatings on iron and steel articles – specifications and test methods’. However, there are some exceptions to this standard (see thicker coatings below).
BS 729 was the old British galvanizing standard for hot dip galvanizing. It is now superseded by (BS) EN ISO 1461.
When hot dip galvanizing is specified, the surface of the steel is completely covered with a uniform coating whose thickness is determined principally by the thickness of the steel being galvanized (see Graph 1 below).
This is an important advantage of the galvanizing process; a standard coating thickness is applied almost automatically. The actual thickness of galvanized coating achieved varies with steel section size, surface profile and surface composition. Actual coating weights are often much more than the minimum specified in the standard. As coating life expectancy figures quoted are based on the minimum coating thickness, they are therefore usually very conservative.

Guidance on the design and performance of hot dip galvanizing is contained in EN ISO 14713 Part 1 and 2.
EN ISO 1461: coating minimum masses/ thickness on articles that are not centrifuged.
EN ISO 1461:coating minimum masses/thickness on articles that are centrifuged.
Thicker coatings than those set out in EN ISO 1461 can give additional protection for use in particularly aggressive environments and can be specified in conjunction with EN ISO 1461. It should, however, be emphasised that for most applications, thicker coatings are rarely necessary.
Grit blasting prior to galvanizing is usually the most appropriate method and a requirement for a nominal coating thickness of 1000 g/m² (140 µm) has been successfully specified for steel of 6 mm section thickness. For structural steelwork, it is advisable to ascertain whether thicker coatings could be achieved through their greater section thickness and without grit blasting.
Achieving thicker coatings through specification of a reactive steel is normally only appropriate for specific applications.
