Various types of gate automation are available, all have their advantages depending on the type of installation.
Above ground arms are a popular option due to the ease and speed of installation and therefore are a cost affective way of improving security, the aesthetics and value of your property. They are generally fitted during the installation of new gates but we have fitted many sets to existing gates. Kits are available to automate gates of up to 7 metres per leaf and can be used on any of our driveway gates.
The underground kit is most desirable for its discreet appearance therefore improving the overall look of the installation. Again, they can be used on new gates or in some cases, if the set-up allows, existing gates. Kits are available to deal with gates of up to 3.5 metres each leaf and can be fitted to our steel or steel/wooden gates.
Sliding gate kits can be used on either of our track or cantilever sliding gates. Motors are available to deal with gates of up to 4 tons and are very versatile in their function. Motors are generally installed during the main installation but we have fitted kits to existing gates. When it comes to automating existing gates a site survey will have to be carried out to determine whether the existing set up will allow a motor/s to be installed, this method will be carried on any job if automation to existing gates is required.
All accessories are available to use on any of the above systems such as remote operators, push buttons, keypads or intercom systems. More advanced loop systems can be used generally on commercial installations but are available for domestic gates if required. All automation kits have a manual override in case of a power failure and all electrical work is carried to part P and 17th edition electrical regulations.
