Frontier Pitts Bi-folding Gate Airlock System at an International UK Airport.
As part of their Framework Agreement, the Contractors objective was to create a new access road to the fuel farm, and increase security with an automatic gate interlock which would also monitor and control the refuel of aircrafts. The new access road construction required a single width entry and exit lane to accommodate 45ft HGV/Fuel Bowser vehicles.
Bi-fold Gate Interlock Operation
As the new access road was required to accommodate 45ft HGV/Fuel Bowser vehicles through an Airlock Security System, space was particularly restricted. The security solution was also required to be 100% duty rated to fulfill the heavy usage required by an International Airport. Therefore the Bi-folding Fast Gates were the perfect solution to ensure the gates took up the minimum of space.A traffic light system was mounted on the bi-folding gates post to provide clear visibility for the drivers, and ensure they proceed through the automatic gates when they are fully open.
At Frontier Pitts, we highly recommend safety features are fitted to your automated gate to comply to safety standards and alleviate the dangers associated with automatic gates. Safety devices on this installation include traffic lights, vehicle detector loops, safety edges, photocells, flashing beacons and sirens.
