Project Background 

Aerotron Group was established in 1973 and is one of Europe's leading supplier the aviation industry specialising in component support solutions to number of major OEM's and airline customers around the world.  
Their modern 100,000 sqft environmentally controlled warehouse is based on Manor Royal Business Estate in Crawley, conveniently located adjacent to Gatwick Airport. 
Client Requirement 
 
Back in 2013 Aerotron had experienced a number of incidents where trespassers kept repeatedly gaining access to the area surrounding their main large warehouse building.  
 
Following a complete review of their perimeter security, Aerotron decided to upgrade their existing fencing as well as invest in robust, reliable electric powered gates to their main delivery entrance and staff car park and through a third party, approached Cova Security Gates for their solution.  
 
Their specific requirement was that their new gates needed to work quickly, to allow both delivery lorries and cars to enter and exit their premises with the minimum of fuss, whilst maintaining the higest security for when their building was closed.

Client Feedback 
 
Neil Westley, Operations Director - Aerotron Group commented “We are more than happy with the service provided by Cova, who had to deal with a short manufacture period to make sure the gates were installed with our build schedule! 
 
We were so impressed with the these particular gates that we even changed the design for the front car park gates from a sliding gate to the same bi-fold design. 
 
Our new company Aerotron Composites, will open later this year (2020) in Chatteris and we have again appointed Cova to design, manufacture and install another CSG 10604 gate along with their HVM crash rated sliding cantilever gate as well as provide safe pedestrian access for our new employees.”
