In suburban gardens or a castle portcullis, a gate only works when it is properly closed. Leaving it open instantly creates a security risk. ASSA ABLOY’s Vertical Gate Closer shuts almost any gate tight automatically, both at residential and commercial properties.
The Vertical Gate Closer removes any chance for human error. Plus, integrated with advanced 3D Cam-Motion technology on the inside, it ensures everyone can open and close the gate effortlessly.
Vertical Gate Closer
The gate marks the entrance to a private world. It protects commercial premises and employee valuables, such as bicycles. At home, it keeps children safe and stops pets from escaping. But a gate on its own is only as good as the last person who opened it. Fitting a Vertical Gate Closer from ASSA ABLOY will ensure that gates to the home or a business open effortlessly and close autonomously.
3D Cam-Motion technology ensures the gate opens with minimal force and shuts tight, every time it is closed
Safety is built-in, too. Because a gate may be opened by children, older adults or the less-able, 3D Cam-Motion technology ensures the gate opens with minimal force and shuts tight, every time it is closed. All the closer’s moving parts are enclosed, with room to prevent fingers being trapped. The arm and arm-to-spindle link are both bowed to leave space for the most inquisitive little digits.
“An open gate is a security risk. Ensuring critical gates are equipped with a reliable closer will give property owners and users peace of mind,” said Andreas Gmelin, the Director of Business Development - Door Closers, at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions, adding “Our Vertical Gate Closer ensures your first line of defence is fully effective.”
Integrated with 3D Cam-Motion technology
Gate users will never see the patented 3D Cam-Motion technology powering the device’s opening and closing performance, but they will notice the difference. The gate opens and shuts tight, with minimal force, a major benefit for safety and inclusive security.
With ASSA ABLOY’s Vertical Gate Closer, the required pushing force for users falls much more rapidly, when compared with other gate closers. Independent valves enable installers to easily set latch and closing speeds individually and to tailor either speed to a specific user group. Interior valves are thermo resistant, so when gate forces and closing speeds are set, they stay set, even at extreme temperatures (-30 to +50°C).
Product details delivered as BIM Objects
To speed up specification, all product details can be delivered as BIM Objects or within Openings Studio software, which integrates seamlessly with popular design packages, such as Revit. A single, flexible model suited to almost any pedestrian or security gate makes specification even easier. The vertical mounting renders a closer almost invisible, with almost no visual impact on exterior design.
For property owners, installers, distributors and specifiers, as well as gate users, an ASSA ABLOY Vertical Gate Closer does the hard work, so they don’t have to.
