Slide Gates

A slide gate, commonly referred to as a rolling gate, slides across a v-track to grant access to vehicles. Slide gates usually use hydraulic gate operators, chain drive gate operators, or cable drive gate operators. FDC provides, installs and services gate operators from HySecurity, LiftMasters, Viking, Maximum Controls and more

Swing Gates

Swing gates swing open like double doors, allowing vehicles to pass in between. They use screw style gate operators, arm style gate operators, or hydraulic gate operators. Some operators can be concealed in the ground.

Barrier Gates

Barrier Gates

A barrier gate can deter passage of vehicles, but not pedestrians. Barrier gates are usually used in high traffic areas as a form of traffic control. Toll booths, restricted vehicle lanes, and parking lots and garages usually have barrier gates at entrances and and exits.

Lift Gates

 Lift gates lift up and out of the way allowing vehicles to pass underneath. “Over the past several years we have used FDC to maintain our proprietary Entry Master system. This system had its own peculiarities which Ralph Rogers, our FDC technician, was able to master in short order. Since that time we’ve have had excellent service on our existing system and the new system which FDC installed in our east yard expansion”
