Electric Driveway Gates - Above automation systems. Through experience in supplying and installing underground systems, we now recommend two kits based on the gate material and design. A full panelled gate (such as hardwood or metal framed and cladded) creates a "sail" effect. Therefore, the motors have to be strong enough to open and close in the windiest of conditions. With such force being applied, not only does the gate strength in certain points need to be increased but also (and most importantly) the safety of the system needs to be paramount. Therefore, the automation system used needs to be able to detect an obstruction and return without crushing. Unfortunately, there are a lot of kits available on the market that don't - so they may seem good value but stay clear. Additional safety edge systems can also be used along with extra photocells - for more information and advice, call our sales team.
