iGate case - Alligator Plastics


The self-supporting sliding gate

The customer’s requirement

Our client Heras introduced the iGate, a self-supporting sliding gate. Heras needed an open-shut alarm and a strip for the drive of the gate.

Our challenge

  • Weather resistance
  • Keeping moisture away from the electronics
  • Light distribution
  • Light transmission


Our solution

We developed the integrated outdoor lighting for the open-shut alarm. We used UV adhesive to assemble these products, so that they can remain outdoors in all wind and weather conditions for many years.

The strip beneath the gate is the rack, 12 meters long. We selected a strong plastic for this part, a good wear-resistant material. The strip was produced with great precision and accuracy.
