A typical automated swing gate system has a pair of gates that open when using a remote control or an access control panel. The gates normally swing open into the premises but can swing outwards if necessary. Swinging gates tend to be more popular than sliding gates as they are cheaper and easier to install.
BENEFITS OF SWING GATES
– Quick and easy on-site installation
– Ideal for loose road surfaces (gravel drives etc.)
– No groundwork or track required between gate opening
– Quieter than traditional track and wheel systems
– Less Maintenance
– Enhanced security and reputation
A Swing Gate System includes:
– A pair of swing gates, each with a gate operator that opens and closes the gates
– A remote control so you can operate the system from your vehicle
– A control panel with which to control access to the premises
– An intercom or numeric keypad, which can be used either for access control or entry without a remote control
– A pair of photoelectric sensor cells which have the ability to detect people or vehicles obstructing the gate. Once detected, these sensors halt the gate movement so that accidents or damage to vehicles are prevented.
