High Security Gate


BGI Anti-Ballistic/Anti-Blast Gates and Doors

The extreme engineering required to produce these massive doors is a testement to the capabilities and dedication of the BGI team. BGI anti-blast gates and doors which incorporate either a sliding or swing mechanism are constructed from armor plated steel panels and BGI undertakes the complete project from design to engineering and installation. Due to the sensitive location of many of these doors, they are often remote controlled and include a host of detection and monitoring devices to ensure that the doorway and any personnel in the vicinity remain safe.

All our anti-ballistic and anti-blast gates and doors are custom designed according to our customer requirements and the threat levels that they expect to face. Weighing up to 12 tons, these gates are up to 6 meters high and 6 meters wide anad have been installed at border crossings, prisons and other high security compounds.

Creative Engineering Solutions

The challenge of engineering an anti-blast gate of these proportions, which can remotely be instructed to silently and smoothly glide into place cannot be understated. In situations where the safety of personnel is paramount, the operation and the reliability of these massive anti-blast and anti-ballistic gates is vital and BGI is uniquely positioned with the technology and the experience to design, build and install such gates.

Configuration and Operation

The gates an be configured either as sliding (suspended from a horizontal crossbar) or swing.

  • Sliding gates are powered by a heavy-duty 5 - 7.5 horsepower electric motor with a clutch that can be neutralized during a power outage.
  • Swing gates are powered by a hydraulic system capable of moving the massive gates on its hinges.
  • Interior blast doors are manually operated.

Safety features include photo electric sensors and loop detectors to halt movement if a vehicle or person passes during operation, and a clutch for neutralizing or reversing the motor in the event of a collision with a person, vehicle or any other object. Cameras and sensors are mounted on both sides of the gate so that security personnel have a clear view of a wide area and can ensure that no people, vehicles or foreign objects are in the vicinity of the gate before and during gate activation. BGI has also designed a unique retractable camera arm to mount at the top of the gate, which provides an improved field of vision for the camera operators before and during operation but can be retracted to avoid vandalism when the gate is not being used.
