Underground Units

Underground Units or motors comprise of a underground ‘foundation box’ which is positioned at the base of a pier or posts, either in between or behind the pier or posts.

Underground Units are suitable for Timber, Steel and Aluminium gates.

We install a special bottom ‘adaptor shoe’ which interface between the bottom rail and the motor drive arm. The Top Hinge arrangement incorporates an adjustable feature for setting the gates up and to allow for any future adjustment requirements.

Underground motors are often specified for ornamental steel gates because the motors do not impose on the overall aesthetic appearance of the gate.

There are two types underground motors a) Electro-Mechanical, b) Hydraulic.

Both types can cover a wide range of gate sizes and weights – our surveyor will help identify the one that best suits your specific application.

Emergency Override

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.
