Bavak High-Speed Gates


The Fast-Bi-Folding-Gate, or better known and recognized as "the Speedgate", was developed about 20 years ago to address the lack of space. By enabling the gate leaves to fold rather than swing, the gate itself required much less "space" to be fitted. Bavak can justifiably claim to be the first inventor of the speedgate, in developing a true folding gate that opened and closed much faster than traditional gates, as well as a secure shape and design.

It took many years before architects, security advisers and end-uses in the market accepted this new gate design. However, today the concept of the speedgate has become more and more widely used and is increasingly a commodity product! Unlike the Bavak product, many of the competing designs are not built with security in mind and we are seeing many look-alike designs on the market.

Bavak can manufacture and supply speedgates in all kinds of layouts and designs, still being focused at the high-end, high-risk security market. These include:

  • Bar-infill square and/or round tubular profiles
  • Security glazing, transparent, glossy, mat, with logos, etc.
  • Wooden panels (cladding)
  • Steel wire design, anti climb feature
  • Steel-sheet material (cladding), single and double covered
  • Ballistic-cladded Speedgate (BR = Bullet resistant)

Bavak focuses on the upper level of the high security segment and has put more effort and focus into developing products that address the issues of the highest security requirements. Years of experience in this sector, combined with product design experience, has resulted in the speedgate designs we have today.


The Speedgate B-secure® is innovative, fast, robust, and reliable with a low overall total cost of ownership. In nearly every vehicle access control situation a Speedgate B-secure® can be used, such as in business parks, harbors, police stations and parking garages.

The Speedgate B-secure® is designed based on 25 years of experience in speedgate technology.

B-Secure Speedgate

This gate features an innovative gate panel position device in the form of an electronic encoder which replaces the common end switches. This more accurate and maintenance-free device has a positive impact on maintenance costs.

The translational motion unit consists of a limited number of standardized components which makes the bottom housing smaller and more ridgid. The housing itself forms a self-supporting construction. This makes it possible to use only three support points.

Through this innovative design, the housing is sealed from road and vehicle dirt and debris.

Aside from the traditional bar infill, we are able to provide glass or complete infill panels made from steel, wood or plastic. Furthermore, the B-secure gate can be provided with integrated LED lights or orientation lights on the columns.


Technical specifications

The entrance to a commercial site, harbor, police station, prison or garage may demand special measures. In nearly every vehicle and pedestrian access control situation a Speedgate B-protect® can be used.

The Speedgate B-protect® has an uncompromised nature. Constructed with heavy RHS panels, fitted with a heavy duty drive and provided with the newest control technology, the Speedgate B-protect® is the heaviest of them all. It functions in nearly every climate and is therefore used on many locations all over the world.

B-Secure Speedgate

The gate is provided with standard infill but is also available with complete cladding containing steel plates. The Speedgate B-protect® is also available as a FB4 certified Bullet Resistant gate, the Bavak Speedgate B-protect BR®.

The gate is available in top drive and can be controlled by a PCB of PLC. By using a PLC, specific status reports can be passed to a Security Management System. The PCB is build in the columns of the gate, thus an extra cabinet is not necessary.

  • Heaviest speedgate
  • Available with tried and tested techniques
  • EN 13241-compliant
  • Available in several designs
  • Suitable for intensive use

Technical specifications

The Speedgate B-protect BR® (bullet resistant) design is built upon the requirement of very highly secured sites and these include, but are not limited to: Penitentiary institutions (prisons), high value warehousing depots, bank-counter depots, police offices/headquarters, embassies, military site.

B-Protect BR Speedgate

This Speedgate B-protect BR® can be cladded with all types of material to customer specification. This also includes certified ballistic material. The ballistic range of the cladding varies from FB1 up to FB6 (.22 LR - cal. 7.62 core). B-protect BR gates can be supplied in the following measurements: 2.000 - 4.000 mm ( height) and 2.000 - 5.000 mm ( width). The controls are special as well. This "heavy duty gate" must at least be operated manually by a "push-hold-button" in order to avoid automatic operation. The hinges are specifically designed for this purpose. The gate is also provided with an "anti-climb" feature.

The Speedgate B-protect BR® also incorporates in its design many features that focus on security including avoiding "unsecure gaps". In other words, Bavak gates are designed to be first and foremost "secure". However, safety is also very important and we are obliged to follow the NEN 1522 for our designs and there is a certain balance to be made between those 2 norms and classifications.

More special security features and details can be discussed in a private meeting. For obvious reasons, highly sensitive information cannot be listed on a publicly accessible website. Please do not hesitate to contact us for an appointment.


Technical specifications

The Speedgate B-access® is the perfect solution to make a parking garage safe and secure. The Speedgate B-access® opens and closes very fast and is specifically developed for parking structures with a high user frequency range.

This type of gate combines reliability with cost effectiveness. By using robust and high-quality materials, the Speedgate B-access® has a long lifespan with a low overall cost of ownership.

The gate comes standard with bar infill. Of course another appearance is possible and the Speedgate B-access® can be customized to come with glass, wood, full cladding, perfo plate or deployed metal. The finish in is powder coated in any standard RAL color.

The electric drive of the Bavak Speedgate B-access® is built in the columns and is available as top- or bottom guided as well as trackless. The Bavak Speedgate B-access® is PCB controlled.

The gate is also available in numerous sizes up to 6 meters wide and 4 meters heigh with a maximum surface area of 21 square feet. The Bavak Speedgate B-access® is custom-made.

  • Suitable for intensive use
  • Available in top- or bottom guide,trackless
  • Compliant to EN 13241-1

Technical specifications

The Speedgate B-trackless® is designed based on 25 years of experience in Speedgate technology.

The Speedgate B-trackless® features an innovative gate panel position device in the form of an electronic encoder, which replaces the common end switches. This more accurate and maintenance-free device has a positive impact on the costs of maintenance.

The translational motion unit consists of a limited number of standardized components which are installed within the hanging post. The post itself forms a self-supporting construction which is surface-fixed to a suitable foundation pad.

B-Protect Trackless

As an alternative to the traditional bar infill, we are able to provide glass, or complete infill panels made from steel, wood or plastic.

The Speedgate B-trackless® can be provided with integrated LED lights or orientation lights on the columns.

  • Innovative, solid and robust
  • Low overall total cost of ownership due to a translational motion and encoder controller
  • Self-supporting construction
  • Compliant to EN 13241-1
