Pair of wooden swing gates replaced with a cantilever sliding gate. Automated using a ground mounted motor.
Our biggest sliding gate to date
The opening at the top of the slipway is 8m, so our cantilever gate is 12m long overall. There is no ground track so no issues with debris getting lodged which could result in lots of problems.
Even though the gate is nearly 1000kg in weight, due to the clever wheel system you can move it pretty easily.
Our latest installation required operators to enable an offset opening orientation. To achieve this we used Field 250 Underground Operators with the chain conversion kit to get the angles required.
Wooden gates installed at a new entrance to this property. The gates are automated via SEA Underground Field 250 operators. Safety edges are along the bottom edges of the gates - inside and outside, to respond to unexpected obstructions in the pathway of the gate - eg a child, pet etc. Safety beams are also installed to protect the area of the gate operation - if they are obstructed then the gate will not close. LED lights on the gate posts flash when the gate is operating.
We were given the job to automate an existing set of vehicle gates for a small gated residential development. We used surface mounted hydraulic operators, with safety edges along internal and external bottom edges of the gates. Operation of the gates is achieved via radio fob, or keypade code entry, or via a vehicle triggering a ground loop under the blocks on the internal side of the gates.
We were asked to replace a pair of wooden gates with new, bespoke metal gates, automated via underground operators with a WIFI enabled video intercom including keypad. Great to do an installation under the shadow of an iconic emblem of Cornish Heritage - an engine house.
