Designed and manufactured by CSG in the UK, model 10601 is the first generation bi folding automated speed gate product but nonetheless remains the perfect solution where height and span of opening are critical factors.

The CSG10601 Bi-Folding Speed Gate consists of two posts, onto each post a bi-folding leaf is attached by hinges. The posts are connected by an overhead operator box which is cleated to and supported by an adjacent external structure, generally integral to a building. The bi-folding leaf utilises and overhead guide track within the underside of the operator box assembly, there is no requirement for ground guides or track.

The post hung section of the bi-folding leaf is driven by a 3-phase/50Hz drive motor, output speed 33rpm driving through 18:95 ratio spur drive gear, locking in both the open and closed positions, leaf movement can be accommodated to open either inwards or outwards. Gate leaf sections are fully welded assemblies, constructed of RHS steel section, vertical infill bars at 100mm spacing as standard although additional/alternative materials can be accommodated to suit.

Typically a gate will consist of a pair of bi folding leaves, capable of spans up to 15000mm W x 5000mm H clear aperture, single bi-folding leaf gates can be produced if required. Gate leaves can be operated by a single drive unit simultaneously, or individual drives for larger spans or where individual leaf control is required. Drive/s are located within the operator box and are controlled by a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) located within the associated control cabinet. All gate systems come complete with a safety photocell system between the gate posts.
