Garmendale’s shot gun gates are the most reliable gating systems available. With installations throughout the world, our gates have delivered many millions of theme park guests to there rides, in complete safety and with unrivaled reliability. The pneamatic control system has been designed so that at no time is high pressure used on the gate activating cylinder, this is one of the main safety aspects of the design. The soft start dump valve is activated by the “emergency stop system” on the main ride and should at any time the “emergency stop” be pressed anywhere on the system it would immediately dump the air from the gate system. If the gates are in part open or part closed mode and the gates are pushed manually they will go into gate closed or gate open position. If they were pushed close they would mechanically lock once the gates have reached the fully closed position.
Designed to be almost completely maintenance free, the entire range, once installed will offer years of trouble free operation. All our gates are manufactured to BS EN 1090 EX2 standards so you can be assured that every component is traceable and of the highest quality, with the added assurance that the workmanship is world class and built to last a lifetime.
Compliance to British Standard BS-7036 sections 1, 3 & 4 code of practice for safety powered doors for pedestrian use and BS EN 13814 ride manufacturing standards along with ASTM standards where applicable and performance levels to PLE where required ensures the RG11 gating systems from Garmendale are amongst the safest available.
