Why Pedestrian Gates?

Frontier Pitts manufacture a large portfolio of pedestrian control gates.

The DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) came into force in 1995. Section 3 of the Act (which specifically mentions site accessibility) came into force in 2002. "The Act makes it unlawful for a service provider to discriminate against a disabled person by refusing to provide them any service which it provides to members of the public." - Code of Practice, DDA (Disability Discrimination Act)

Whether the requirement is for a simple, manually operated pedestrian gate, only used a few times a day, or a completely automated pedestrian control system with adjacent pedestrian turnstile used continuously, Frontier Pitts will design and manufacture a system designed to meet the sites exact needs. There are five options to consider when specifying your pedestrian control system, including:

1. How many times per day will the gate/turnstile be operated? 

2. Automatic or Manual Gate? Type of Automation

3. Style of fenceline & other accessory requirements

Pedestrian Gates

Pedestrian Control 'Wicket' Gates
Pedestrian Control 'Qwicket' Gates

Frontier Pitts Pedestrian Swing/Hinged Gates manual model is called the ‘Wicket’ and the automatic model is called the ‘Qwicket’.

As a vehicle security gate should not be used by pedestrians for health and safety reasons, Frontier Pitts recommends a separate access point in the form of a pedestrian gate or turnstile adjacent to the vehicle gate within the fence line.
