Demand Takes Off for SOSEC, The UK’s First Solar Powered Barrier and Gate Product

The future looks bright for Maidstone based Green Gate Access Systems as the company powers up to meet significant demand for its SOSEC solar powered range of products launched last autumn.

This revolutionary new approach to securing worksites has proved a hit with new and existing clients, including Keir Living and Taylor Wimpey, who have rolled the system out to 40 UK sites to date, and concrete product supplier, TARMAC who are planning a UK wide roll out this year.

Its adaptability has attracted interest from other sectors – with the highways market seen as having great growth potential. In readiness, Green Gate Access Systems and Kent based Highways Care have adapted the product for road and highways projects.

The success to date has put the company back on the front foot after a year in which its offices in Bircholt Road, Maidstone suffered hundreds of thousands of pounds of damage following a fire at a neighbouring part of the site. The company is set to move to bigger premises nearby this month.

This new start for the company - in a unit six times the size of their existing base - will help support future expansion with more space for production and storage, plus new training facilities and a product showroom.

Neil Sampson, Managing Director, Green Gate Access Systems, said:
“We have been delighted with the reception so far to the SOSEC concept – but believe there is so much more potential.
“Our belief from the start has been that the SOSEC mobile temporary security technology has the potential to be a game changer, and from the interest received it’s clear that the demands is there.
“2016 was our 10th year in business, a cause for celebration tempered by the fire which risked destroying everything we had built up. When things like this happen, you have to dig deep and get on with it and I was lucky to have a fantastic team in place to do just that.
“As it turned out, we enjoyed our most successful year to date and with our new offices and the successful launch of the SOSEC range of products the future is looking good, allowing us to plan for future expansion.”

Green Gate Access Systems developed the SOSEC concept to answer a growing need to provide public safety and work site security where power provision is not practical, but security demands are high.

The product meets the challenges of combining security with mobility, solar power, durability and flexibility, brought together in a single easy to deliver platform that can be adapted to suit work site demands.

SOSEC’s solar power and power storage ability are unique, and allow the product to be used up to 900 times a day, all year round, even through a British winter. It can also be delivered as a battery only verison for up to one month’s use in very temporary sites.
