What to look for in a gate

Leda-Vannaclip is Australia’s largest manufacturer of perimeter security and access control products.


Our range of automatic gates are tailored to suit a range of widths and heights and are designed to meet all relevant OH&S requirements.

Shop drawings & design All jobs require signed shop drawings prior to the commencement of manufacturing. Drawings are completed in 3D and recorded for future spare parts.

Not all gates available in Australia are created equal and it is essential that you arm yourself with relevant information to compare gate quotations. Leda-Vannaclip considers its product to be ‘best practice’ and this brochure illustrates some important features that you should look for in a gate.

Materials Leda-Vannaclip use high quality Australian steel to AS standards. We recommend that strong, durable steel be used for all perimeter security in commercial applications.

Look Out! Poor quality industrial gates fabricated with light duty materials, fitted with CHEAP, underpowered drive motors are being quoted in the market. Too often we see gate selection based on price that requires an expensive retrofit 12-24 months later. Leda is often called out to repair, replace or service inappropriate product recommended by inexperienced suppliers. Take the time to carefully evaluate your gate choice with the information in this brochure as it will save you $. You should deal with Leda-Vannaclip to ensure you are supplied ‘the highest quality and most reliable gates in Australia’ backed by our service team.


Installation Structural footings Leda-Vannaclip footings are designed by our civil engineers to ensure they meet the required structural and Australian standards. This often makes our footings larger than many inexperienced suppliers and marginally more costly, but for good reason.

Design Ongoing research and development provides the products and technical advice needed for real security solutions. Products are 3D modelled, and drawn for installation when required. Shop drawings are submitted for approval prior to manufacturing.

Specification At the early stages of any project, Leda-Vannaclip can provide advice and engineering documentation.

Service Service is a critical component to the long-term operations of all Leda-Vannaclip equipment. Preventative maintenance programs are available to ensure all products continue to perform reliably and efficiently.

Installation The construction industry is learning the benefit of suppliers able to project manage as it is more critical than price. Incompetent sub contractors will end up requiring more management which wipes out any perceived price advantage.
