Track Gates Go Modular And Solar

Leda Vannaclip developed a low cost modular cantilever (suspended) gate in 2008. Interest has been strong in Australia which has lead Leda to add to the range with a modular track gate which is now available

April 22, 2009 - PRLog -- “The modular range of gates and soon to be fencing takes full advantage of our robotic welding equipment,” states Steve Holder, Leda’s head of Design. The robotics were installed in late 2008 and a number of products such as a new knockdown turnstile have started to be manufactured using the equipment.

Innovation in gates is not typically seen by the public as one gate typically looks similar to the next. The modular gate looks different from the start as it is stored and transported on a double pallet. In the past, large gates required large trucks with large cranes which made the whole exercise quite expensive. The modular gate is then bolted together and installed by two people in a few hours. “Installation time has been more than halved from traditional gates of the same size and you do not need prior experience,” adds Mr Holder.

Leda supply engineering drawings for the footings to ensure it meets wind loading oflg standards. There is the popular option of automating the gate and clients can select a solar option which apparently produces significant savings over trenching power to remote sites. Leda hope the utilities market catch onto the solar option as Leda’s solar system reportedly can open and close the gate up to 50 times a day.
