Hill Trident are experts in automation and providing automated gate systems.

Automation is provided using one of our state of the art 100 percent duty cycle motors.

Access control options are vast and all systems will integrate and can be designed and installed to meet your exacting requirements. The most simple options would include encoded key pads or remote controls for entry, we can also provide hard wired intercoms allowing a number of base stations to communicate with the gate and with a simple push of a button the gate will open. This can be straightforward audio or we can provide video intercom systems for your further peace of mind.

If you require further information, a member of our Survey Team can meet with you at your site to discuss your exact requirements.

Our experienced surveyors will discuss the scenarios to consider and all options available to you when installing security fencing.

Advanced Intercom Systems

The more advanced intercom system is the GSM intercom, this is an intercom unit with a mobile sim card, there is no hard wiring back to premises required as it is all taken care of at the gate, you can simply program the recipient number of your choice and the gate will dial the said number, this can be a mobile phone for example and when you receive the call you can press a button on your phone to open the gate, this can, of course be used anywhere in the world providing you have a mobile signal. This can also be provided to a fixed landline. This system is particularly popular on sites where there is no permanent operative stationed at a gate house/reception or very large sites where cabling could be costly and complex.

The main use for this application is multi-user sites, shared office complexes or flats for example, we would fit a plaque on the gate pillar and the visitor would simply press the button to reach their desired recipient and the gate can be opened by them at their discretion.

Exiting gates can be a free exit facility via push button or induction loop, for higher security demands we can provide a replication of access control measures for means of exit.

As well as these methods of access we can provide proximity tags or cards and can integrate with door systems already in situe regardless of manufacturer.

A further method of gate access is to integrate gate systems with personnel control measures, this can be in turn linked to payroll and security, an example would be that when an individual arrives at a gate, this can be PC linked to show that the operative is on site and if they leave at what point this happens, this system is also highly regarded for the monitoring of health and safety and fire drills ensuring that the appropriate officer knows where individuals are at all times.

Automation Gate Safety

Here at Hill Trident we take the safety of automation and automated gate systems very seriously. We have some of the most comprehensive safety devices available on the market.

All gates are now fitted with safety edges, these are soft edges that when met by an obstruction the gate will stop or stop and return open, we also position additional sets of photocells to completely cover the gate opening area, emergency stop buttons and beacons/sounders.

Once all of this is in place we then carry out a calibrated force test on all installations and provide a steel etched plate of conformity with a CE number to each installation. On handover you will receive a full document highlighting the safety measures provided to your gate system.

As well as fitting these vital measures to all of our gate systems we will also carry out a survey of your existing gate and introduce the same measures regardless of who provided your gate systems.
