Residential and Industrial Security Gates for Austin

Security Gates are simply a gate or series of gates that control vehicular access in and out of a residence, commercial, municipal or industrial facility. Security gate control systems can be operated by electric AC or DC power, batteries or solar power. The solar power controllers qualify for a 30% federal tax credit. We can retrofit your existing gates or design new security gates for your Austin residence or commercial facility. Our installations range from single gated driveway entries to multi-gate installations with integrated perimeter alert and video surveillance systems.

Underwriters Laboratory (UL) identifies a set of safety standards for the installation of motorized gate openers and the gates they are attached to. Among these safety standards, are the following requirements:
• Only install an automatic opener on gates used for vehicular traffic
• Warning placards must be placed on both sides of the gate where easily visible
• The installation must include external sensing devices (known as secondary entrapment protection) that protect against entrapment. Examples of this are photo-eyes or contact sensing edges
• A horizontal sliding gate itself must be designed or screened to prevent persons from reaching through a gate, per standard ASTM 2200
