There are four main types of gate automation listed below with a brief explanation of their application.

Linear Automation

Linear operators are mounted on the back of the post. They are used to automate gates mounted on wooden or metal posts. They can be used to automate existing gates or as part of a new installation.

Underground Automation

Electric gates and gate automation offers protection, security and luxury for your premises; whether it be your home, office, or private land.

Underground operators are designed to be set directly under the gate, usually replacing the bottom hinge. They are the most discrete form of automation and are especially useful for maintaining the appearance of metal gates.

Articulated Arm Automation

Articulated arm operators are used to automate gates mounted on brick piers. They are ideal for metal gates where undergrounds are not suitable. They can also be used to automate existing gates or as part of a new installation.

Sliding Gate Automation

Sliding gate operators are designed to be set at the back of a sliding gate and open the gate by rotating a gear which connects to a toothed rack which is fitted to the gate. Sliding gates are an ideal solution for entrances where gates are unable to swing due to lack of space or a sloping drive.
