Description: Automation to existing estate gates

Location: Northamptonshire

Process: There are quite number issues to consider when specifying entrance gates - not least is one of security, reliability and safety. Multi-user groups such residential properties and small businesses within the estate, church parishioners, staff members, special event days, control of livestock, the design style of the gates – the list goes on!

The gates are automated by FAAC 770 heavy duty underground motor units which are very robust and reliable.

Vehicle entry and exit is granted by means of two induction loop detectors. This means that traffic can freely enter and leave the estate during normal hours of business but the gates remain closed to reduce the risk of livestock wondering off should they have strayed away from an adjacent fenced area.

The loop detectors auto opening feature is linked to a pre-set adjustable timer so that vehicles cannot freely enter after hours. During these hours, entry can only be granted via an authorised pin number, by command from a voice intercom or by a person with an authorised hand transmitter.

AGD Systems has installed or services a number of automatic gate systems and access control equipment for a number of large estates in the region each having its own unique set of needs to fulfil.
