Types of Automatic Gate Systems

Automatic gate systems come in various types, each tailored to specific gate designs and operational requirements. Here’s an overview of the primary types.

Auto Swing Gate

Underground Motors – These motors are installed beneath the ground, making them aesthetically pleasing as they’re hidden from view. They operate swing gates by pivoting them inwards or outwards.

Aboveground Motors – Mounted visibly on gate pillars, these motors are relatively easier to install and maintain. They are suitable for gates where underground installation isn’t feasible

Auto Sliding Gate

Rack and Pinion Systems – Utilising a toothed rack attached to the gate and a pinion motor that moves it, this system is ideal for sliding gates where space is limited.

Cantilever Systems – These systems operate by sliding the gate sideways without needing a track along the gate’s entire length. Suitable for uneven or rough terrain, they offer smooth and quiet operation

Auto Barrier Gate

Parking Barriers – Often found in parking lots, these systems control vehicle access by raising and lowering a horizontal bar.

Boom Barriers – Similar to parking barriers, but with a longer horizontal arm (boom), used in places like toll booths or restricted access areas

Auto Folding Gate

Bi-folding gates – These comprise two panels that fold together, these gates are suitable for areas with limited space and need a wider opening than a traditional swing gate can provide.

Factors Influencing Gate Choice

Gate Design and Space – Different types suit various gate designs and electric gate openers, depending on available space.

Terrain and Environment – The terrain and environmental factors also influence the choice, such as uneven ground or limited space for gate movement.

Operational Requirements – Considerations like speed, frequency of use, and the weight of the gate impact the choice of automation system.

Aesthetic Preferences – Some systems, like underground motors, offer a sleeker appearance as they’re hidden from view.
