Custom-Designed Industrial Security Gates

Boswen is a specialist in constructing a variety of industrial security gates to suit the size and function of our clients’ premises. Our range includes:

Double Swing

These are made from thick wall tubing, hot dipped galvanised, with a powder-coated black finish. They can be installed onto 200mm double posts. Options include a keypad, hand transmitters and swipe card entry systems. These industrial gates can be erected with safety beams and ground loop safety systems.


As the name suggests, this type of industrial security gate uses a system of counter balanced weights to operate. This type of setup is ideal for gravel driveways, uneven ground and curbing.

A special track can be welded to the structure and a heavy-duty wheel assembly fixed into a concrete foundation to add stability. These are popular due to their ability to cover a large opening without having to have a flat surface or make major modifications to the concrete on the drive way.

Bi-fold/ Telescopic

These are perfect for sites where the back-run is restricted. Generally, tracked telescopic gates need a smaller back-run than the cantilever telescopic ones . Tracked gates are also available in multiple leaves, which allows the back-run to be further reduced. They are suitable for medium- to heavy-duty applications and will provide long-life service with a minimum of maintenance.

Two-part tracked telescopic sliding gates are economical, and designed to fit openings of 15m (single-leaf) or 30m (bi-parting pair). They have a standard static drive system housed in a half-height post, which also encloses a programmable control panel. An integral steel rope and pulley system drives the second leaf.These industrial gates are bespoke, and manufactured to specific site requirements. They are also able to accommodate cross falls.

They have long-term corrosion protection, comply with current safety requirements, and come complete with fail-safe buffers and photo cells, if required.A full back-up service can be provided for site surveys, design, installation, commissioning, and servicing. Free technical advice is always available at any stage, before, during or after installation.

Track Sliding

An effective industrial security gate, these are used for restricting access to a wider roads. They provide the same level of security as the cantilever, but require a shorter run-back area, making them suitable for installation in restricted spaces. The leaf is held vertically by a set of guide posts with adjustable guide rollers. It is driven by a rack and pinion mechanism. All drive units mechanically lock the leaves in position, and have the option for a positive locking mechanism.

The sliding industrial gate has been designed to be used with high traffic flows and varying environmental conditions. A variety of sizes, finishes and infill options such as mesh infills and steel sections are all available.

Safety features

  • Safety edge to leading edge of leaf to prevent gate from closing on a person or vehicle
  • Safety edges to internal and external motor posts
  • Post-mounted audible alarm or flashing beacon
  • Pedestrian guard-rail around run-back area
  • Safety induction loops cut into the road surface
  • Safety photocells for pedestrians and high lorries
