Benefits of Bi-Fold Entrance Gates for Commercial Properties
We design and produce our very own bi-fold mechanism, commercial gate operators.
Trackless bi-fold automatic security gates provide commercial properties with the vital security that they need to keep their businesses secure.
Being trackless saves costs laying concrete for the sliding gate track, no ongoing upkeep by cleaning the tracks or damage done to tracks by heavy trucks.
With the bi-fold being made up of separate panels it has more give than sliding and swing gates.
If the gates are ever hit, often only minimal damage is done.
Restrictions: Side walls, fencing, concrete edging, angled drive-in areas, uneven drives, come with complications when you want to secure your property. But these restrictions don’t often apply for our bi-fold gate system.
Limited Space: With the bi-fold gate system taking up less room as it swings back, it gives more usable space within the property.
Wide Driveways: When a driveway is too wide for swing gates or if you are simply not wanting tracks across the entrance due to heavy vehicles and trucks
We have many accessories available to make the everyday functions of your commercial property seamless and easy. These accessories are used to further improve safety and security of people on the premises in many ways.
Loop Vehicle Detectors, Photocells, Battery Backup
Loop and vehicle detectors are used when exiting to open the gate automatically as the vehicle drives up to the gate. Photocells are installed for protection when the gate is closing, stopping the gate from closing when something is between the opening. Battery backup for power outages.
A bollard is a steel security post, designed to protect gates from wayward vehicles.
Flashing Lights & Sounds
Flashing lights and sounds are a security feature used to improve safety of all people on premises, but especially pedestrians at the time of a vehicle entering or exiting the gate.
A GSM phone access system allows security gates to be opened with a phone call, at no cost to the caller. It is an easy and reliable solution for commercial properties needing limited access. Up to 200 approved phone numbers can be added through a secure site, suiting large and small businesses alike.
Bi-Folding Method: requires considerably less power to operate
Less Wind Effect: compared to standard swing gates
Bi-Fold Mechanism: taking a % of the gate weight, meaning less wear and tear on the gate motors.
Center Ground Locking System: when closed, the gate slides into a lock plate, making the bi-fold an extremely secure gate.
Always Have Power: Your gate will have a battery backup included, so the gate will work even in a power outage.
Security and safety has become paramount for commercial and industrial properties.
The automatic trackless bi-fold gate is fast becoming the gate of choice.
Simply because of its versatility solving problems in difficult entrances where restricted space, limited space, uneven and sloped drives are often issues with these entrances. Being trackless, it is perfect where large heavy vehicles drive through.
Secure, as it locks into a center ground lock plate in the drive when closed.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why choose a bi-fold over a swing or sliding gate?
When a swing or sliding gate is not suitable. Bi-Folds are problem solvers, they are space saving and have been specifically designed for this very reason. They have a smaller footprint and are extremely versatile in difficult areas.
Does your bi-fold have tracks?
TMGC bifolds are Trackless. Meaning there are no issues with; uneven ground, keeping tracks clean of dirt and stones, no concrete plinth, no destruction of garden or driveway, no track damage from heavy vehicles, no lifting of track from ground movement.
Are bi-folds secure?
Bi-folds are extremely secure. When closed, they lock into a centre ground lock in the drive or a ceiling lock.
I have a sloping/tapered drive, and no-one can find a solution.
Being trackless and taking up less room than a swing gate when they fold back, means bi-fold gates are the perfect solution for sloping, rising, and uneven drives. Using rising / lifting hinges they lift to the gradient of the drive, as they fold back.
We have side walls on both sides of the drive and so we can’t have a sliding gate. Can you help?
The bi-fold is the perfect solution for restricted spaces. Using minimal space, it is perfect for those with side walls, fencing, garden edging, pathways, etc.
Am I limited with design choice?
All gates are custom made to your design choice and colour. There are no limits, as the motors and hardware on the back/inside of the gate.
Can the gate swing out?
No. The way it is designed it can only swing/fold inwards. Having a minimal footprint, it can wrap itself around cars as it folds back.
Will my gate still work if the power goes out?
With all our bi-fold packages, a battery backup is included. The gate will still operate if there is a power outage.
Is my car protected if the gate starts to close?
With all our bi-fold packages PE Photocells are installed on each gate post for protection when the gates are closing.
Am I able to open my gate with my phone?
Yes, with a GSM Access System using the 4G-Telstra network / or a Bluetooth App which uses your own Wi-Fi.
Can solar be used with bi-fold gates?
Yes, with both domestic and commercial, solar can be used. But the correct gate operators must be used. We use ARCO (Australian) gate operators for domestic and TMGC (Australian) heavy duty operators for commercial, as both motors go to sleep when not in use. This is VIP, so they are not continually using power and draining batteries. Which is the very reason this solar system is more reliable than other solar setups.
