Sliding motors can specified for ornamental steel gates, solid boarded timber gates, and for domestic and industrial applications - you don't need to worry about the motor disadvantaging the gate's appearance as they do not impose on the overall aesthetic of the gate as they are positioned inside or behind a pier or post.
Motors for sliding gates can be specified for ornamental steel gates and solid boarded timber gates, for both domestic and industrial applications. There is no need for concern regarding the motor impacting the overall appearance of the gate as they are positioned inside or behind a pier or post.
There are various manufacturers, designs and models available that cover a wide range of gate sizes and weights; our surveyor will be sure to help determine which would best suit your specific application.
Sliding gate motors are generally Electro-Mechanical and can be specified for use with single or three phase power.
All types of motors incorporate an emergency manual override feature so that gates can be overridden in the event of a power failure or emergency.
In some cases, sliding gate motors can be specified with a battery backup which allows the override feature to be activated by remote control – handy for solid boarded gates where there is no other access to property than the main gate entrance.
