Newgate has recently completed an exciting project for Port of Middlesbrough. Port of Middlesbrough has been supporting manufacturing supply chains for over 80 years, handling, and transporting freight for a wide range of industries; from renewables to automotive freight.
Our project for them involved manufacturing a Type 1 Electric Cantilever Sliding Gate. Standing at 2.5 metres high and spanning 8 metres across, this gate included 10 CAT3 safety edges and weighed more than 1770kg! On top of these extensive safety features, the gate included a card reader and video intercom controls on entry as well as additional accessories such as reflective strips and on the leading edges of the gate, HSE warning signs, and a car height reader post.
Working with such a storied client was an exciting prospect for us and our expert engineering team was able to pull through with a, more than, fit for purpose solution.
