Find security behind the luxury!!! At Pacific Gates Inc., we provide peace of mind that you will receive the privacy and protection that you desire. With electric gate openers, rest assured that you can come and go with ease.
Electric Gate Openers: An electric gate opener is the mechanized arm that helps your automatic gate open and close. A signal is sent from an access control, such as a remote control or keypad that tells the motor to open or close the gate. It will automatically reverse in direction if it hits an obstacle and can stay open if instructed.
Electric gate openers: Automatically open or close your gate Are available for swing gates or sliding gates Require a power supply that could be electric or solar power must fit the size of the gate to work properly
How Does An Electric Gate Opener Work? There isn't much difference between an electric gate opener and a garage door opener. When you click the provided hand-held transmitter in your vehicle, a radio signal is sent to a receiver box which is mounted near the gate. The receiver carries the message to the control box that activates a circuit which initiates movement in the gate opener arm. The arm will physically swing or slide the gate open. The gate can be set to then close by pressing the transmitter button again or to close automatically after an allotted amount of time.
What Gates Will An Electric Gate Opener Work On? Electric gate openers are manufactured to work with various swing and sliding gates. Each has power rating to compensate for the variety of sizes and weight of each gate.
Swing gate openers come in two basic styles: Linear and Articulated. The Articulated Arm style is pad mounted and works better on heavier than normal gates and high use situations. It is not recommended to use a solid wood gate, as wind resistance could pose a problem. It also creates an additional strain on the wood frame.
SWING GATE Openers: Swing gate equipment can be electro-mechanical or electro-hydraulic in nature. Electro-mechanical equipment is generally designed for the domestic user and has a duty cycle that suits family residences and driveways that are not busy throughout the day. Electro-hydraulic equipment is generally designed for a higher duty cycle and is suitable for busy entrances and prestige gates. Post-mounted operators (Mechanical or Hydraulic) are fixed to the gatepost and a sturdy cross member on the gate.
Automatic gate openers can be used either commercially or for residential properties. Here is an example of a control box for an automatic gate opener
What To Look For In An Electric Gate Opener: The type of gate - swing or sliding The weight of the gate The length of the gate Frequency of use and traffic through the gate
Will An Electric Gate Opener Work With My Gate? If a gate is already installed, it is important to make sure that it will work with an electric gate opener. They will work with most well-made gates however you should check that your gate is in good operating condition. Check your gate for the following:
Is it plumb and level? Does it swing freely on its hinges? Can it move without dragging on the ground? Are the gate posts strong enough and secured in the ground with concrete to minimize flex or twist? Does the gate have a horizontal cross member to provide stability?
SLIDING GATE Openers Sliding gates offer a number of advantages over swing gates. A sliding gate requires less space, which allows the full length of the driveway to be usable for parking vehicles. It also offers higher security due to the stronger resistance to being pushed open than swing gates. Sliding gates will also work on an upward sloping driveway where a pair of swing gates would not be able to open inward.
And don't forget, We also offer custom garage doors, and garage door repair!
