Why choose AVANT

Learn the strengths and peculiarities of a vertical gate AVANT, compared to the traditional ones.

The Vertically Opening AVANT Gate/Barrier is an all-inclusive product

Its price is certain, definitive and includes everything – also installation. This is one of the differences compared to traditional horizontal sliding or swing gates, whose prices are often clear just only at the end of installation work. In fact, when you plan the installation of a traditional gate – in particular in case of sliding gates – often happens that the complete amount does NOT include the masonry work necessary for the installation of a track on the ground; an amount that in some cases can turn out to be quite expensive. Considering all these elements, the price of a Vertically Opening Gate/Barrier can be clearly compared with a typical automatized closing system – in cases of large openings it is nearly always the cheapest solution – offering in the meantime, however, definitely superior technical-constructional features.

The Vertically Opening AVANT Gate/Barrier is self-supporting

This is the reason why it could be assembled in advance (inclusive of the electrical and hydraulic systems) and delivered finished to the client. This reduces significantly the system's definitive starting time. Moreover – if necessary – it can be easily disassembled and reused with the possibility to be shorten or lengthen as one likes in another location. This is possible thanks to the gate's/barrier's assembling versatility that doesn't have to be certificated a second time by the builder. Patented design and project.

The Vertically Opening AVANT Gate/Barrier works oil-hydraulically

This kind of motorization guarantees a perfect functioning even after many years and with a really intensive use of the machinery; this also reduces to the minimum the maintenance costs. Furthermore, the hydraulic system assures the gate's utmost quietness. Hydraulic combined with electronics is considered the best technological solution available for automatic closures.

The Vertically Opening AVANT Gate/Barrier is innovative
