Q Power Joins Forces with Downee to Improve Gate Automation Safety & Performance in Australia

Q Power has just been named as an accredited distributor and installer of Holler VARO cantilever gates, joining Downee’s exclusive installer network as one of only three companies selected to service the entire Queensland region.

The Downee/Q Power partnership comes after a worker in NSW was fatally crushed by an automatic gate last year and, as Holler systems meet the stringent, industry-leading European safety regulations not yet equalled in Australia, seeks to drastically improve the safety of gate automation in Queensland and beyond.

An exclusive partnership to enhance the industry

“When looking for professional partners, we look for those with exceptional customer service, several years’ industry experience, and dedication to improving the gate automation industry throughout Australia and New Zealand,” Paul Devlin, Territory Sales Manager at Downee said.

“Q Power is a company Downee has always respected.

“Their wealth of experience in the electrical and gate automation industry, coupled with their moral compass to provide safe and reliable systems to the public, is in line with the values we share,” he said.

Trusted by worldwide leaders

The Austrian-based gate manufacturer behind the VARO system, Holler, is a global leader in high-tech gate design and manufacturing, with the likes of Airbus, Siemens and the Royal Air Force (RAF) just a few of many global clients protected by their high-end security solutions.

Downee owns the exclusive agreement to supply Holler VARO cantilever gates in Australia and New Zealand.

“We are excited and extremely proud to have been chosen by Downee as one of three companies to introduce Holler’s world-class gate systems to Queensland,” Q Power’s Managing Director Mike Walsh said.

“This will help us to provide the commercial and industrial sectors with a product that far exceeds the features and benefits of existing automatic gate solutions available in the market,” he said.

Providing a high-level of gate safety unmatched in Australia

Known for engineering excellence, Holler has for years driven unparalleled innovation in security gates and fences for the industrial, commercial and government sectors, with state-of-the-art facilities and technology, and extensive R&D capacity in Europe.

Along with reduced lead times, smooth installations, and a modular construction to streamline freight and logistics, Holler boasts exceptional safety benefits with its products’ in-built features among the most advanced in the industry.

Upholding stringent European safety regulations, these safety features help to prevent gates from injuring people and damaging vehicles, material and equipment.

Though Australia is yet to match European standards in gate automation safety, as a growing industry that has already seen a number of injuries and deaths, it is likely the country will adopt stricter measures.

“The gate automation industry is still a young, growing market in Australia,” said Paul.

“It is only a matter of time before we see a more regulated market with safety at the forefront of mind, like we and our partners believe it should be.

“By choosing a Downee accredited installer and a Holler gate system, you can be assured that your gate complies with industry leading safety regulations,” he said.
