Trackless bifold gates are now available in Australia from Leda Security Products . Space saving requirements led to the development of trackless bifold gates with the design being used in Europe for numerous years.
The Australian engineered product from Leda Security Products has undergone many design stages to get to its current form which is now on par with overseas products. Earlier versions of the trackless bifold gates required tracks to open and close the gate.
The design is mechanical so Leda suggests that any normal swing gate operator can now operate a trackless bifold which is an exciting development for vehicle access control in confined spaces. Previously, one of the major costs for bifold gates was the automation gear and overhead tracks, but these are no longer required with the trackless bifold gates.
Leda Security Products has recently installed trackless bifold gates for car park entries in Melbourne and most recently the Department of Health headquarters in Canberra. The key benefit to this type of bifold gate is its unparalleled speed. Leda report 6 metre openings can be opened and closed in as little as 2-3 seconds.
Leda's capability continues to rise with its recent appointment by Crawford Doors to distribute its products in Australia. The company reports that it now can install a full range of loading dock products in addition to its vehicle access control. Products include dock doors, dock shelters, dock levellers, high speed doors and Megadoors.
