What type of automation should you have installed?



Swinging Gates

For swinging gates operaters, these can be above or below ground.  Above ground is lower in cost both for the equipment and installation but is not generally suitable for use on lose brick/stone pillars.

Whilst widely used in more commercial types of installation it does detract from the appearance of the gates.  Underground "Sub" operators are extremely reliable.  They are fully sealed (IP67 rating) and can even operate if submerged by flash flooding.

Sliding Gates


For many sites sliding gates are the ideal solution.  This may be for drives that slope up making inward opening gates impractical. It could be because inward opening gates would restricted the space available inside or it may be because of the higher level of security that is possible with a sliding gate.

Track or Cantilever


Sliding gates can be installed with a track buried in the ground with just a few millimetres showing or can be fitted to cantilever gear .  This eliminates the track in the ground by use of a slotted box section fitted to the bottom of the gate.  This runs on heavy-duty internal rollers fitted to one side of the gate.  It offers the ability to cope with cross-drive slopes and is ideal in heavy traffic locations eliminating the ground track that is normally driven over.

Gate Design


Most designs of swinging gates including rising top styles can be built as a slider whilst retaining the appearance of swinging gates.
