The slam gate access cubicle provides a perfect end of race gate safety gate solution. With access to both sides this access cubicle is both versatile and and extremely well thought out.
Our end gates are intended to act as end of race gates, operated with the use of a single shooting bolt they are largely constructed of 40 mm box section and are fully galvanised providing both a durable and secure solution.
Our race hurdles are fully galvanised and constructed using 40mm by 3mm walled mild steel tubing as opposed to the more regular 2.5mm tubing, meaning our hurdles have 20% more steel in their spars than most on the current market do!
