Remote farm entrance gate in Staffs, now solar powered

Very remote farm entrance gate in Staffs, now solar powered

In order to smarten up this entrance gate, the gate post (a reinforced steel 8″ RSJ) was concealed by Bath stone giving a very smart appearance. The control box can just be seen behind the stone pillar

Viewed from inside the property, you can see the cut-out required so that the ram’s fixing could be welded directly onto the hidden steel post.

The system was installed in May 2015, and has GMT 200 telephone opening as the gate is half a mile from the farm.

Radley College needed to control the entrance gate to their boathouse, but the gate is at the end of a half mile drive, by the River Thames in Oxfordshire.

So using solar power, with a GSM system and 24 hour timer fitted, they are now able to control who enters the boathouse, and even open the gate from the main lodge, 3 miles away. Head Boatman, Andy Thomas said ” It’s great to have an easy to use system and decide who enters the Boat House”

“Massively improved security”

Installed early 2014, the Royal Bath and West Society wanted to increase security at their heavy main gate, particularly when shows and events were not taking place. A  commercial specification kit was installed with GSM intercom, coded keypads on both inside and out, and two 24 hour timers to accommodate the number of tenants actually residing within the Showground. Chris Grant, facilities manager at the Showground said…

‘With the automation system, we have massively improved our security yet still given our employees and tenants flexibility of movement both during the working day as well as out of hours.’

Chris Grant, Royal Bath & West Showground
