Palisade Gates

What are palisade gates?
Robust construction and anti-corrosion finish

Palisade gates can be used with palisade fencing or other types of fencing or walling to secure access points. We manufacture standard and custom palisade gates for vehicles and pedestrians, and our vehicular gates can be specified as single- or double-leaf swing gates, sliding gates (tracked or cantilevered) or telescopic gates. Furthermore, we offer a number of power and automation options, plus a choice of access control systems.

Our palisade gates are manufactured entirely from steel and are hot-dip galvanised for a long-lasting, corrosion-resistant finish. A tough polyester powder coat can be applied on top of the galvanising for improved aesthetics and additional corrosion protection; standard colours are green and black, but we can apply almost any other colour on request.

Depending on the size and specification, a palisade gate will normally be fabricated with a steel frame of square hollow section, braced as required. Pales are W or D section and attached using zinc-plated steel bolts and shear nuts, or stainless steel rivets for higher security. Adjustable hinges provide for easy installation and alignment, while a slide latch is installed as standard, with provision for a heavy-duty padlock. Double-leaf gates are equipped with drop bolts.

Palisade gates are difficult for intruders to cut due to the heavy-duty construction, and the absence of handholds makes them almost impossible to climb. When the pale heads are finished with a single spike or splayed triple spike, they provide a further deterrent to climbing.

Examples of applications for palisade gates are railways, utility sites, commercial and industrial premises, airports, docks, logistics and warehousing, waste recycling centres, schools, and sports grounds and leisure facilities.

Our standard palisade gates are 2.0 or 2.4 m high, but we can manufacture other heights to order. All of our palisade gates are supplied complete with hanging posts. If palisade gates are being installed adjacent to palisade fencing with additional security measures such as barbed wire, razor wire or rotating toppings, we can install the same on the gates.

What are the key features of palisade gates?

Palisade gates are manufactured from steel and provide good security thanks to their resistance to cutting and climbing. We offer palisade gates in a wide variety of sizes and specifications, which makes them a very versatile option for perimeter security. Typically our palisade gates comply with relevant sections of BS 1722-12 (Fences – Specification for steel palisade fences) – be aware that some suppliers sell lower-specification palisade gates that are not compliant. All of our palisade gates are hot-dip galvanised in accordance with BS EN ISO 1461 (Hot dip galvanized coatings on fabricated iron and steel articles – Specifications and test methods). We also offer the option of polyester powder coating in black, green or your choice of colour, carried out in accordance with BS EN 13438 (Paints and varnishes – Powder organic coatings for hot-dip galvanised or sherardized steel products for construction purposes).

The steel pales can be D-section, W-section for higher security or other sections are available on request. Pale material thickness depends on the fence height and level of security required, and the pale head style options are rounded, rounded and notched, single-spiked or splayed triple-spiked. Standard fixings are galvanised steel bolts with tamper-resistant shear nuts, or stainless steel rivets can be used for higher security.

Palisade gates offer advantages over alternative types of security gate thanks to their robust construction, resistance to damage, the difficulty of climbing and visibility through the gaps between the pales. Our in-house design and fabrication capabilities mean we can easily adapt standard designs or create totally bespoke gates to suit your site requirements.

We only use our own teams of trained installers, not casual labour, so we can guarantee the quality of the installation. Alternatively, we can supply gates for installation by you or your contractor.

Thanks to their robust construction and anti-corrosion finish, palisade gates require little or no maintenance over their long lifetime.  However, should a gate suffer any damage, we can readily replace individual pales or repair the framework.
