Underground gate automation systems are where the motors sit inside foundation boxes that are concreted into the ground making them extremely secure. They are ideal for those seeking a discreet gate automation system.
Back of gates motors are attached to the rear side of the gate. When installing these motors, we pay particular attention to making sure they are located as discretely as possible along the back of the gate.
Sliding gates require a different type of motor arrangement that utilises a rack and pinion arrangement to power the gates along a special track. Apart from having to use a sliding gate for situations where you may have a heavy, close boarded or particularly wide gate, they are also ideal where having the gates swinging inwards is not practical. Sliding gates are often fitted in situations where enhanced security is needed and are ideal for industrial units with large entrances.
The other function of the control system is to receive inputs from a variety of other access control devices and open the gates. This means that push buttons, keypads, intercoms, and induction loops etc. can be connected into the system making it easy to program the operation of the gates for your particular circumstances.
