SR2 Ultra Swing Security Gates
SR2 swing gates – product overview
Our SR2 swing gates come in single-leaf and double-leaf formats in a choice of widths and heights for securing pedestrians or vehicle access points. Customers can also specify manual or powered/automated operation, and we offer a variety of access control systems.
While our Pro-Secure SR1 swing gates provide good security, the SR2 single and double swing gates offer significantly higher security for only a small increase in cost. When tested against the LPS 1175 standard, the SR2 gates withstand a sustained attack using a broader array of tools and for a longer period. Furthermore, the gates’ internationally recognised SR2 security rating enables specifiers to demonstrate that they have performed due diligence in securing the site perimeter. This can prove invaluable for projects required to meet Secured by Design standards.
Compared with sliding gates, swing gates normally cost less and are often operated manually – which therefore avoids the costs of automation and the associated ongoing maintenance.
Installation normally requires just one day, so disruption at the site being secured is kept to an absolute minimum. Even when we are installing, commissioning and CE marking powered/automated gates, our skilled installation teams usually only need one day.

What are the key features of SR2 swing gates?
All-steel construction makes our SR2 swing gates more robust than gates fabricated from other materials, and the mesh used for the cladding provides excellent anti-climb and anti-cut characteristics. The SR2 security rating applies to gates in a variety of heights and widths, so we can supply high-security gates for a variety of different applications. Detailed design features that help the gates achieve their coveted SR2 certification include high-security mesh cladding, hinge protection plates and reinforced latch areas.
Each gate leaf has a framework fabricated from heavy-gauge RHS (rectangular hollow section) steel, braced as necessary. Robust twin-wire 868 wire mesh is fully welded into the frame to ensure there are no weak points. The 868 mesh is then double-clad with heavy-duty 358 anti-cut, anti-climb mesh that is attached using clamp bars, security bolts and shear cone nuts. The combination of 868 mesh and 358 mesh provides excellent resistance to cutting and climbing while still providing visibility for CCTV systems and security patrols.
All steel parts are hot-dip galvanised for long-lasting resistance to corrosion and we can optionally apply a tough polyester powder coat on top of the galvanising for further protection and improved aesthetics. Our standard colours are black and green but customers can specify almost any other RAL colour.
Hot-dip galvanising is in accordance with BS EN ISO 1461 (Hot dip galvanized coatings on fabricated iron and steel articles – Specifications and test methods) and powder coating complies with BS EN 13438 (Paints and varnishes – Powder organic coatings for hot-dip galvanised or sherardized steel products for construction purposes).
With their robust construction and anti-corrosion finish, SR2 swing gates require little or no maintenance over their long lifetime. Note, however, that powered/automated gates should be inspected periodically to ensure continued safe and reliable operation. For customers wanting regular inspections, we offer maintenance contracts or, if the gates are damaged during use, we can repair them on-site at short notice or at our factory.
