Electric Gates | Automatic Gates

Improve safety on your property or site, by controlling traffic movement either into a work area or via the creation of a safe pedestrian crossing.

With Dofygate, traffic-calming and halting or pedestrian management can be achieved without the need for mains powered electric gates or the disadvantage of slowly opening gates.

POTENTIAL USES FOR DOFYGATE

Avoiding contact between vehicles and people or other vehicles is high on the list of site safety requirements. A suitably placed Dofygate can prevent delivery drivers or customers driving or walking into areas where they may place themselves or their vehicles in danger from moving vehicles.

Dofygates are ideal for politely keeping customers out of areas reserved for staff parking or away from the working part of warehouses, while allowing easy access for loader drivers and other authorised persons.

Where loading or tipping is taking place, the unexpected arrival of a vehicle from the weighbridge may cause a problem. A simple stopping point, created by the installation of a Dofygate, controlled by the loader driver working on the pad can avoid such unexpected arrivals.

Marked out walkways often require pedestrians to cross roads used by heavy vehicles. A Dofygate controlled by the pedestrian can ensure traffic is brought to a halt while the crossing takes place. The Dofygate can be set to be is normally up and then closed by the pedestrian for crossing, or set to be normally down and opened by the driver having been brought to a halt first.

Dofygates have also been successfully deployed to control access in parks, golf courses and other venues, keeping visitors in the correct locations around the venue, without interfering with day-to-day on-site tasks by preventing customers from wandering or driving into unauthorized areas. They are especially useful in golf buggy control around busy golf courses and can also act as an alternative to traditional pelican crossings around private and public venues.

WHICH DOFYGATE?

A 2 bar Dofygate (available with widths up to 6.0 metres) is a versatile way of covering these areas and improving site safety. There are a variety of opening options but the standard set up with the two supplied fobs and perhaps a remote fixed button is often all that is required. Heavyweight stands are available for use where the gate is not permanent or to avoid the need to dig up any concrete.

DOFYGATE SITE SAFETY IN ACTION

Pedestrian Safety

Heath Mount School

Requiring a means of stopping traffic at an important crossing point for young children on a busy internal road, the Dofygate exceeded all expectations. The gate is normally closed and drivers can open the gate by pressing a button, which also forces them to stop with both sides of the crossing point in plain view. When the gate is open, a flashing beacon on both sides alerts the children not to attempt to

Costain Mogden Lane

A busy internal road carrying cars, vans and goods vehicles has to be crossed by staff entering the administration block from other parts of the site or those walking to work. The Dofygate is normally open and is closed by the pedestrian wishing to cross the road. Infra-red sensors keep the gate closed until the crossing is completed, after which the gate reopens to enable normal traffic flow.

Tipping Pad Management

fcc

FCC Environment Watford

The tipping area for incoming waste is out of sight of the weighbridge so lorries can turn up at any time - meaning several vehicles can enter and seek to manoeuvre on the pad simultaneously. Eliminating the issue of accidental contact, a single Dofygate unit at the entrance means the shovel driver can control and direct entry and so take ownership of ‘his’ pad meaning safety and efficiency are improved.

Venue Visitor Control

Tropical Butterfly House, Sheffield

Dofygates were installed to keep the public away from maintenance areas, but to allow easy and speedy access for staff into these areas. This was achieved in a polite an unobtrusive way, designed to minimise the impact to visitors and staff.

Traffic control

british-sugar

British Sugar Newark

The movement of sugar beet delivery lorries needed to be marshalled around the site in a one-way system taking into account changes to the available capacity of the tipping areas, while blanking off access to lime and soil areas for beet lorries, in addition to allowing access when needed to collection lorries. Appropriately placed Dofygates provide control without hinderance.

St Nicolas School

A problem existed of parents parking in the staff car park to drop off or pick up children, resulting in aggravation for the staff needing to park for the day. This was politely avoided using a Dofygate with a keypad - simple and effective without the need to lay any power wires.

Customers tended to walk into the workshop instead of reception, placing themselves in potential danger as well as preventing fitters from continuing with their job. A single Dofygate operated with a fixed remote wireless button in the workshop blocked the entrance and indicating to customers where they should go, but is easily opened by a fitter when needed.
