Strand Technologies Welcomes New ‘Associazione’

  • 7 Nov 2022

Strand Technologies is now the official UK distributor for Ditec – a worldwide market leader and manufacturer of swing and sliding gate operating equipment, and traffic barrier systems.

The partnership is an ‘ideal fit’ for Strand Tech, which manufactures its own technology solutions for the safety, security and control of electro-mechanical operating systems. These include automatic doors and entrances.

Ditec marks the company’s first brand introduction outside its own manufacture. Ditec products combine functionality and customisation options for gates and traffic barriers.

They boast a stylish aesthetic with advanced technology for reliability and ease of use. Its entrance systems are energy efficient – enabling users to make energy savings while reducing environmental impact.


The Ditec sliding gate range provides automated systems for gates up to 3000 kg in weight. Weather resistant, they combine strength with a modern elegant design.

The swing gate range moves wings up to five metres wide. An underground system is also available – concealing moving parts from view.

Ditec automatic barriers are perfect for shopping centres, hotels, residential blocks and public areas which need efficient access control. They are ideal for sites with medium to high traffic volume. A wide range of accessories is available for various control needs.

Ditec is based near Milan, Italy. It has been operating for more than 40 years and is now part of the ASSA ABLOY Group.

Strand Technologies will hold extensive stock for the UK gate installer market supported by expert technical support. Details of the product range can be found at

‘Fresh and exciting’

Steve Marshall, Managing Director of Strand Technologies, comments: “Ditec ideally complements Strand Technologies existing range of control and diagnostic systems and reinforces our position within the door and entrances market.

“The introduction of Ditec to the UK brings something fresh and exciting; combining superb technology with exquisite design and durability.”

Alessandro Gozzi, Ditec’s Sales Manager for Western Europe, says: “It was clear from the start that our two companies share the same values and work commitments.

“The team at Strand Technologies has extensive knowledge and skills and we are delighted that they have become our distribution partner in UK.”
