FDC StrongWeld Security Gates – The Best in the Business!

FDC builds commercial and industrial gates and ships to several large clients throughout the US. Major industries like FPL and Progress Energy rely on FDC StrongWeld gates to keep their facilities safe and secure. FDC StrongWeld gates are considered top-of-the-line and are praised for their quality and reliability. StrongWeld gates and their components are made in our Melbourne, Florida manufacturing shop in a variety of fabrics including aluminum, chain-link, steel and more. Commercial fence installation is also available.

The hospitality industry is no stranger to FDC. Hotels such as Orlando’s Waldorf Astoria and The Peabody use FDC gates and parking control solutions to manage their revenue and access to parking facilities. For more information on FDC Federal APD Parking Control Solutions, check out our parking page. Below are our standard gates styles and the types of gate operators that each style utilizes. Electric gate operators by HySecurity, Elite Access, and Mega Arm are some of the best.

Slide Gates

Slide gates slide across a v-track to grant access to vehicles. Slide gates usually use hydraulic gate operators, chain drive gate operators, or cable drive gate operators. FDC provides, installs and services HySecurity, Elite and Mega Arm gate operators among others.

Swing Gates

Swing gates swing open like double doors, allowing vehicles to pass. They use screw-style gate operators, arm-style gate operators, or hydraulic gate operators. Some operators can be concealed in the ground.

Barrier Gates

Barrier gates deter the passage of vehicles, but not pedestrians. Barrier gates are usually used in high-traffic areas as a form of traffic control. Toll booths, restricted vehicle lanes, and parking lots and garages usually have barrier gates at entrances and exits.

Lift Gates

Liftgates lift up and out of the way allowing vehicles to pass underneath.

“Over the past several years we have used FDC to maintain our proprietary Entry Master system. This system had its own peculiarities which Ralph Rogers, our FDC technician, was able to master in short order. Since that time we’ve have had excellent service on our existing system and the new system which FDC installed in our east yard expansion”
