Automated Gates

Speed Gates

Product Summary

The “Rapide” Trackless Bi-Folding Speed Gate comprises a unique drive mechanism to control the opening and closing of a bi folding set of gates. This mechanism converts and controls both leaves producing a smooth but fast action. This unique design allows the gate to operate without the use of a bottom or top track, thus eliminating any height restrictions and large tracks in the road. 


On activation, the gates open in a quick but safe folding action. The “Rapide” Bi-Folding Speed Gate is the ideal solution where site has high traffic flow or indeed security is a priority. The gates can integrate to any access control system, can be part of a security network or operate stand alone. They are extremely robust with built in hydraulic locking and offer a lifetime running cost that makes it one of the best commercially viable gates you can install. The gates can be integrated to traffic management systems or Eagle can tailor a design to suit your requirements.
