Automatic gates provide an excellent method of preventing
intruders from bringing vehicles onto your property and thereby
removing your belongings whilst posing as legitimate removal
Swinging Gate Actuator
Sliding Gate Actuator
There are several different methods of actuating these gates
with the principal forms being sliding and swinging with the
decision being made as to whether a single or twin swinging
gate with exposed or invisible gate actuators or a single
sliding gate largely depending on aesthetics and space.
- Twin swinging inward opening gates provides the
most welcoming entry, with single swing inward opening and
sliding gates being next.
- Outward opening gates require a different method
of actuation and are not considered to be a welcoming style
of entry along with the fact that no automatic opening gate
may encroach in any way onto the council or public land.
Weather resistant keypads on both sides of the gate entry
are specified for situations when the remote gate controller
is not available, (ie loan vehicle etc.) or for pedestrian
The system may be time controlled to remain open between
designated hours if so desired.
Multiple button remote gate controllers are available and,
with the addition of the appropriate garage door interfaces,
may provide the dual role of gate and door control, keeping
numbers of controllers to a minimum.
For exiting purposes (for service people and guests), and
providing enough driveway room is available, an in ground
vehicle detection device is proposed in the driveway set approximately
15 - 20 m back from the gates.
If space does not permit the installation of such a device
we generally recommend that a press release button is located
in the garage area for your departure and in the front foyer
for guests' departure.
A Photoelectric safety beam is incorporated into the system
across the gate pillars to prevent the gates closing on any
vehicle that has been delayed within the gate closing area.
We recommend that you have Telecom bring in a 4 pair direct
burial voice cable to the demarcation point to allow for future
expansion (ring Telecom on 123).
