Automatic Gate Reinforcement
Recently there has been a rash of quite aggressive incidents involving motorbikes being driven at car park gates, in a deliberate effort to break them down to gain entry. Typically the bike is used to ram the gates repeatedly until they open, thereby gaining free access to the car park.
Double leaf swing gates are particularly vulnerable as shown in the video, an incident which occurred in September at a prestigious SW3 address. Although recorded on CCTV this was no deterrent, and neither the moped registration or the riders could be identified.
As a result of repeated such incidents at this site, Anchor Door Systems had recently reinforced the gates, so on this occasion they withstood the repeated battering. Modifications can include upgrading the structure of the gate, new gate operators and new locks.
