A little bit more about who we are and where we came from:
AutoGate, Inc., is located near the shores of Lake Erie in Berlin Heights, Ohio. We are a family owned business founded in 1986 by Robert (Bob) Rodwancy. With a vision to to provide an unique option to the traditional slide and swing gate systems, Bob traveled the US to demonstrate the Vertical Pivot lift operator. Along with sons Bill and Don Rodwancy, and a fantastic crew of dedicated employees, they have put the Vertical Pivot Lift operators out as a very viable option. With a reputation for quality, we are the leading manufacturer of Vertical Pivot Gate systems. In addition to manufacturing the first UL 325 compliant vertical pivot gate operator, we also offer a full line of reversing/safety, accessory and access control devices.
Our product line includes “The Shield®”, a Department of State (DoS) / ASTM F2656 K12/ASTM 50, K8/ASTM 40, K4/ASTM 30 and a Shallow Foundation K4/ASTM 30 rated anti-terrorism active crash barrier gates. All of our crash systems are listed on the Department of Defense (DoD) Anti-Ram Vehicle Barrier List.
With a product suite focused on quality and over 100 combined years of experience in security sales and technical support, AutoGate is a complete source for secure entry solutions.
Our standard and anti-terrorism hostile vehicle mitigation products are appropriate for commercial facilities, gated communities, mini storage facilities, marinas, high threat level installations and any other location where pedestrian and vehicle access needs to be controlled. With built-in Battery Back-up, you will have the security of knowing your gate will continue to operate during a short term power outage.
