Ross XT-4000 Anti-Climb Sliding Gate Passes Durability Life Cycle Testing

Ross XT-4000 Anti-Climb Sliding Gate

Ross’ Anti-Climb Gate System has successfully passed rigorous durability cycle testing to evaluate long-term performance, serviceability and wear of the gate components and operator. The test, administered by Architectural Testing Inc., an Intertek Company, required the gate to operate a minimum of 200,000 cycles at 120 times per hour without failure.

Ross performed the testing in accordance with Department of State, Bureau of Overseas Building Operations, Standard Specification Section 324005. Successful completion demonstrates the gate’s ability to handle demanding field applications and ensures the system will perform repeatedly for many years.

The XT-4000 Anti-Climb Sliding Gate is used to block access by unauthorized pedestrians and vehicles at entry control points and is designed to eliminate footholds and handholds that can be used for climbing. The modular design of the XT-4000 features removable and interchangeable panels that provide maximum flexibility for design and easy installation.

The HySecurity® SlideDriver™ gate operator is UL325 compliant and uses an electro-hydraulic, friction drive wheel system designed for continuous duty use in high-cycle applications. This technology enables the gate to operate at least 60 complete open/close cycles per hour when used with 12- to 36-foot-wide standard clear openings.

Scott Espensen, Ross Perimeter Security Product Manager says the successful test validates Ross’ high quality production process. “Passing this rigorous testing standard not only allows Ross to offer our standard one-year warranty, it also reinforces our commitment to producing quality products for our customers.” Ross’ Anti-Climb Sliding Gate has been operating successfully worldwide since its introduction in 2011.

Intertek-ATI is accredited as a testing laboratory in accordance with the recognized International Standard ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories.
