Pedestrian Speed Gates

There are two main styles of Speed Gates – half-height and full-height.

Half-height variants are often waist-high and provide a low-security control of access. They are usually used in areas where security staff are present.

Full-height Speed Gates provide a physical barrier to access, hence they are sometimes called Security Speed Gates. In the right environment, they could reduce the number of security staff required.

Key Benefits of Speed Gates

Speed Gate Speed & Flexibility

Speed & Flexibility

With a range of sensors and powerful drive units, Speed Gates are the fastest-moving doors on the market.

Not only are they fast, but they are also capable of providing wide egress options. This, therefore, benefits all types of users.

  • Some Speed Gates open in <1 second.
  • Single or dual doors grant efficient access for all (DDA / Equality).
  • Compact units, maximising opening widths.
  • Doors rotate both ways, for convenience and small footprint.
  • Est throughput traffic of 60 users per minute.
Speed Gate Control & Security

Control & Security

Compatible with a wide range of Access Control media, and options for low or high obstacles, Speed Gates provides a very flexible solution for a variety of applications.

Tested to rigorous standards, all Gates are capable of many cycles before maintenance is required.

  • Separate control of access can be applied to each side of the door.
  • Full-height doors provide physical prevention (1800mm).
  • Doors tested to various physical forces.
  • Electromagnetic locking.
  • Battery backup.
  • Mean Cycle Between Failure (MCBF) of 10,000,000 cycles.
Smart Sensors & Intelligence

Smart Sensors & Intelligence

Advanced sensors allow for a variety of users, ensuring maximum flexibility.

In addition to the flexibility, Emergency Exit standards can also be maintained.

  • Trolly detection.
  • Protection against tailgating/piggybacking, u-turns and cross-over detection.
  • Access Control: Access control media such as fobs (RFID), biometrics, QR and other auxiliary machines, such as printed tickets.
  • Custom audio alarms.
  • Emergency Exit protocol overrides (EN13637).
Speed Gate Aesthetics


With architects in mind, each unit is built to the highest aesthetical standards.

With combinations of paint finishes and glass types, Speed Gates enhance the aesthetics of entrance halls and areas which require control of access.

  • LED lighting.
  • Minimal footprint.
  • RAL finishes - RAL9005, RAL5008, RAL6014, RAL7003, RAL7016, RAL9010 (all stainless steel components).
  • Customised pattern or branding on the glass.
