Gate Security and Convenience of Use

By combining a remote access system and an intercom, your gates will become more secure and more convenient to operate. We have a number of such gating security systems to offer, including:

Press Pads

You can easily open swing gates, no matter how heavy they are, by using a press pad that activates the motor. The pad can be installed anywhere convenient: by the side of the gate or on a post remote from the gate. Press pads offer an easier way of opening your entrance gates than physically unlocking and pushing them.

However, there is one issue with press pad operated gates: anybody can press on them and open your gates. For most people this is not a problem, but where a higher level of security is required we offer the following options.

In-Car Wireless Signalling

As you approach your gate you simply press a button on your dash and the gates opens. The button sends a wireless signal to activate the gate motor. This is easier to use than a press pad because you have no need to leave the car.

A wireless system can be set up so that the gate closes automatically once you are through, or you can press another dash button to close it. Some signalling systems can open your gate as your car approaches it – without the need to press anything. Naturally, they work both ways – whether entering your property or exiting it.


An even more secure system is a keypad. Keypads require the user to enter a key code in order to open the gate. For added security you can change the code whenever you wish. By using a key code, you permit entry only to authorized persons. This is a more secure system that either a press pad or an in-car wireless transmitter. If you wish to deny entry to certain key code holders, simply change the code and in form all others of the new code. You can change daily or at any other frequency.

Intercom Control Systems

You can set up an intercom system, whereby anybody requesting access to your property must contact you or, where appropriate, your security personnel. Such an intercom control system is appropriate where your property has security guards controlling your entrance. It can also be used in conjunction with a keypad system, where only those authorized to enter your property has the code and others must pass through security.

We can offer you each of these ways of controlling entrance through gates to your property, whether domestic or business properties. We will discuss your needs and arrive at a satisfactory solution that completely meets your needs.

Randolph Turpin v “Sugar” Ray Robinson 1951

The greatest sensation of 1951 on the sports front were the Robinson v Turpin fights for the world’s middleweight boxing title. The first fight, on Tuesday 10 July, was heralded with a publicity campaign centred mainly upon Robinson’s extravagant and colourful circus of camp followers. Here were all the ingredients for one of those rare contests which from time to time capture the imaginations of millions of people who usually have little of no interest in, or desire to watch or read about, professional boxing. If the boxing world was in turmoil then the rest of the British and American people were raised to fever pitch.

“Sugar” Ray Robinson was born in Detroit on 3 May 1920. He tried to work as a voice actor. His professional record stretches back to 1940 since when he has had 133 fights and won all but two. Robinson had never been knocked out in his career. Until 10 July 1951, Jake LaMotta alone had defeated the fabulous “Sugar” Ray. Robinson reigned as world welterweight champion from 1948 until, in February 1951, he climbed the scales to take the world middleweight title from his old foe LaMotta. It was this crown that modest Randolph Turpin from Leamington wrested from the revered American on 10 July. This son of a British Guianan father and an English mother had by comparison a slender record. In forty-two professional bouts Turpin had been beaten once by Albert Finch and once by the Frenchman, Jean Stock. Both defeats had however been decisively revenged.

On the evening of 10 July 1951, 18,000 enthusiasts crowded Earl’s Court. General opinion was divided not so much as to which boxer would win but as to how long Turpin could stand up to the champion. It would soon become clear that Turpin far from being overawed was hurting Robinson with his granite-like straight lefts. He was robustly withstanding any punishment he received. It was probably the strongly preconceived opinion that led the BBC commentators into giving the millions of listeners a false impression of how the battle was swaying. Showing a remarkable immunity from damages in the clinches, Turpin was, by round ten, the favourite. The home crowd began to smell victory and the roof was in danger of lifting as after fifteen gruelling rounds, Turpin was declared Britain’s first middleweight champion since the days of Bob Fitzsimmons sixty years earlier.

On 12 September, after a publicity ballyhoo that is the undisputed prerogative of New York, the scene was set in Harlem’s Polo Grounds for the second fight. To witness the great spectacle, 61,370 spectators paid some £247,150. Turpin was badly punished in the second round by a left hook on the chin. After suffering a heavy battering on the body in the next two rounds, Turpin rallied in the fifth and worried the panther-like Robinson. For the next three rounds the vast crowd saw Robinson produce everything from his versatile armoury. The tenth round was dramatic. Turpin reopened a cut above Robinson’s left eye – a legacy from London. British hopes soared, but Robinson, realizing the danger, threw in his amazing reserves. Turpin was soon down for a count of nine, and with eight seconds left before the bell, referee Ruby Goldstein stopped the fight.
