Gates, Barriers and Perimeter Protection

Commercial Gates

Meritas manufacture, design and install a complete range of commercial security gates and access control solutions. We provide a fast and competitive quotation solution for all types of gate automation along with a complete design service. Security gates have long been an effective and popular way of maintaining area security, whether it be for residential or commercial premises. Installing automated gates on residential properties provides an increase in privacy and protection from theft and vandalism. For commercial premises, pedestrian and vehicle access control can be vital in maintaining security on your site, to help you keep a record of who enters and leaves.

There is a vast range of gate automation equipment available

Electro-hydraulic equipment is generally designed for a higher duty cycle and is suitable for busy entrances and prestige gated areas. Our hydraulic gated operating systems are fully serviceable and, if properly maintained, will give many years of reliable service. Electro-Mechanical Automation equipment is generally designed for the domestic user and has a duty cycle which suits family residences and entrances that are not busy throughout the day.


Our security gate systems are ideally suited for integration with our access control systems, allowing you to see and hear your visitors remotely on arrival to help with identification and access permission. Our Audio and Video Access Control and Intercom Systems can be operated remotely, either on your site or from anywhere in the world with mobile video call options, so if you don’t have someone to man your gate, you can still maintain effective control.

Our experienced team of business security experts has successfully helped hundreds of premises improve their site security and are on hand to assess your particular requirements and equip you with the appropriate tools and barriers to properly ensure the security of your site.

All security barriers and security fencing are available as a stand-alone solution or can be integrated with our other security services. All of our barriers, bollards and industrial gates are fitted to industry standards and come with a full manufacturer’s warranty for further peace of mind.

These barriers are designed to secure car parks when not in use, for example securing staff car parks overnight. The barriers we offer are effective, highly durable and economical.

Meritas currently provide two types of manual barriers, either rising arm, complete with a counter balance weight, or swing arm, which acts as a form of manual gate. All of our manual barriers come with accompanying locking posts and stop signs to increase visibility.

Security posts for driveways are very effective in providing a high level of security and protection to help deter any attempted theft of your vehicles, trailers, boats, & caravans whilst on your private land. Retractable driveway security posts are very easy to use. They are manually pulled up from the ground and then locked into the upright position so as to provide a visible and effective security barrier and when they are not required to be visible, they can then be lowered back into the ground within the posts outer sleeve and leave a totally flush finish to the ground.
