Automation equipment can usually be installed to existing gates providing they are in good condition.
On swing gates there are two types of systems available, underground and surface ‘arm’ type drive units.
Underground units are more discrete as they are hidden within the ground underneath the hinge stile of the gate.
Surface arm drive units are more visible as they are usually positioned at mid height on the rear, secure side of the gates.
If the gates need to be altered for automation, this is something we could also carry out for you, if necessary.
All automatic gate systems can be operated by various methods including remote control fobs, intercom systems, digital keypads and also from a mobile or landline telephones. This means you can operate your automated gates from anywhere your mobile phone has a signal – even whilst abroad.
The GSM intercoms are an excellent and secure way to control your gates as all operation can be controlled from your mobile telephone. This also allows you to speak to visitors or deliveries, even whilst you’re away from your property.
