SR2 Ultra Sliding Security Gates
SR2 sliding gates – product overview
We manufacture our SR2 sliding gates in various widths and heights, mainly for controlling vehicular access but also for pedestrians if large numbers of people need to enter or leave a site. Smaller sizes can be manually operated but the majority of our SR2 sliding gates are powered or automated. If the gate is powered/automated, we also offer a choice of access control systems.
Compared with swing gates, sliding gates are harder to force open, plus they offer the advantage that they can be installed at entrances having a gradient. Sliding gates also require little space when open. Moreover, compared with our Pro-Secure SR1 sliding gates, our SR2 gates benefit from significantly higher security.
With their internationally recognised SR2 security rating, the SR2 sliding gates enable specifiers to demonstrate they have performed due diligence in securing the site perimeter. This can be a significant benefit for projects required to be Secured by Design.
For very large entrances, we can install a pair of opposing SR2 sliding gates. Contact us for more information about these.
Our skilled construction, mechanical and electrical teams normally complete the installation in just one day, which minimises disruption for the customer.

What are the key features of SR2 sliding gates?
The design of the SR2 sliding gates is a further evolution of our security sliding gates that we have manufactured successfully for decades. The SR2 gates are all-steel, with the high level of security being achieved through a combination of robust construction, cladding that resists cutting and climbing, reinforced latch areas and other design features.
Both the gate and support structure are designed and manufactured to high standards so the gate moves smoothly and quietly. Top-quality bearings and guides are used to guarantee a long, trouble-free life for the sliding mechanism.
Our Pro-Secure SR2 sliding gates feature a robust framework fabricated from RHS (rectangular hollow section) steel, braced as necessary. Cladding is heavy-duty 868 wire mesh, fully welded to the frame. To help these gates achieve their SR2 security rating, they are double-clad with 358 anti-cut, anti-climb welded wire mesh fixed in place using security bolts and shear cone nuts. Nevertheless, the multi-layered mesh cladding still permits visibility for security patrols and CCTV systems.
Hot-dip galvanising provides long-lasting corrosion resistance for the gate and support structure. Customers also have the option of specifying a tough polyester powder coat on top of the galvanising for further protection and improved aesthetics; our standard colours are black and green, or we can apply almost any other RAL colour on request. Galvanising and powder coating are applied in accordance with, respectively, BS EN ISO 1461 (Hot dip galvanized coatings on fabricated iron and steel articles – Specifications and test methods) and BS EN 13438 (Paints and varnishes – Powder organic coatings for hot-dip galvanised or sherardized steel products for construction purposes).
SR2 sliding gates require little or no maintenance over their long lifetime thanks to the construction from heavy-gauge steel, corrosion-resistant finish and high-quality mechanical components. However, powered or automated gates should be inspected periodically to ensure they are still safe to use and that wear and tear of safety devices and mechanical components will not lead to unreliability. If required, we offer maintenance contracts or, if the gate suffers damage during use, we can undertake repairs on-site or at our factory.
