Gate lock manufacturer Zedlock, of Petworth, West Sussex, has launched a range of high security gates. Designed from the ground-up and featuring a range of innovative security features, the gates are ideal for securing compounds, driveways and yards where valuable equipment is stored. At the core of the design was the desire to create an easy-to-operate gate that wasn’t prone to attack by mini cordless grinder.
Available in spans of 3, 4 and 5 metre (single gates), and 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 metre (double gates), the 1.2 metre-high gates have vertical infill tubes to discourage climbing.
Zedlock designed the gates in response to the rising frequency of gates being rammed which highlighted the lightweight construction of standard field and yard gates.
In addition certain areas are prone to having gates stolen when the typical field gate weighs 20-30Kg so is easily lifted. In contrast the Zedlock gates weigh 70-90Kg.
All gates and posts are hot dip galvanised to EN ISO 1461 and can additionally be powder coated in any RAL colour if required.
The gates are designed to accept all Zedlock variants without drilling, and also feature locking pins at the hinge end, which means that even if the hinges are tampered with the gates will remain in place. Double gates include a drop rod which travels within the gate frame and is locked in the lowered position when the Zedlock sliding bolt is closed.
Zedlock gate posts are 100x100mm with a 4mm wall, and feature five M10 threads on the outside face so installers can attach wire or post and rail to the posts without effort. The gates are made to order due to the number of options available but Zedlock keep a limited quantity in stock.
Zedlock was incorporated in 2011 and is based in Petworth, West Sussex. Managing Director, Bruce Robertson, originally designed the Zedlock (Patent No. GB2489293) as a secure and practical alternative to a padlock and chain. Since its introduction, further models and a range of accessories have been developed to widen the application of the lock.
