What Type of Electric Gate Kit will be fitted?
There are electric gate kits to suit every driveway. We will help you to determine what kit you need based on the main criteria below…
Commercial or residential driveway – Do you have a large palisade gate with heavy traffic or a regular iron driveway gate which will be opened a couple of times a day?
Width, weight and type of gate – The gate leaf size/ width of gate and its weight must fall within the operation guidelines for the equipment. Also, closed pattern/ solid gates will need something much more powerful than traditional iron gates.
Frequency of duty cycles required – Are there a lot of people needing to gain access per day? Is it a private home with minimal traffic?
Opening & closing speed – Do you live on a busy road and need your gates to open fast?
Extra features – Do you want to control your gates with your smartphone? Have extra remotes? Want your gates to open and close automatically at certain times?
Additional swing gate considerations:
Where the gate is hinged – If the hinges are to be in the centre or at the back of your posts or columns determines what type of openers can be attached to your gate.
Additional sliding gate considerations:
Extreme site conditions – Is your gate on a slope? Do you need a certain amount of ground clearance?
