To design, manufacture and install a decorative automatic gate, that fitted in with the existing railing design, but had to work with an existing automatic gate on an air lock system, to ensure that only one gate can open at once.

The new gate also had to work with the schools existing access control system. The new gates had to open up within a small area, due to the slope up the driveway and from either side of the opening. The surrounding area had no space for a sliding gate or a standard swing gate, so the new gate would have to be a bespoke folding gate.


We installed a decorative automatic bi-folding gate, with an airlock system linking the new gate to the existing automatic gate. The airlock system ensures that only one gate can be open at any one time and we installed Paxton net 2 access control to the gates to allow them to work off the schools existing access control system.

The new bi-folding gates open up into a very small area due to the way they fold open, so this worked well with the site conditions. The new automatic gates open in approximately 7 seconds providing the added security needed and allowing vehicles to enter quickly. The school were very pleased with the end result.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for doing a great job of supplying and installing the doors. They look great, as well as feel very well built , so I’m sure our Lions and Keepers will be very impressed! I shall be in touch with other projects but for now, please pass on my thanks to all.

Harling Security installed an access control system for us in Feb 2016. We are very pleased with the work carried out and now feel fully assured that our school is a very safe and secure environment for our children. The communications prior to, and during, the installation were very clear and they liaised well with our IT service and caretaker.

The work was carried out during half term and the team completed the work with little disruption. We fully recommend Harling Security to any school looking to install an access control system. Yours faithfully,

I have used Harling on two recent projects and have found them to be a professional company, who were always available via a phone call and delivered when we required.

I was on site earlier today and just wished to drop you a line to compliment your company and site teams on the installation of Doorsets G.08 & G.11 both of which look very impressive.

It has been a pleasure doing business with harling security solutions. Right from day one you have been positive in all aspects in the construction of the school gates. Delivered on time, your team turned up bright and early, and above all ready for work.

The gates went up and the site was left clean and cleared away. The gates look fantastic. From an idea to the finished product a perfect entrance for our academy. Thank you.
