AG Automation Ltd specialize in all types of gate automation systems, from swing gates to sliding gates. Heavy duty commercial gate automation to electric gate systems for a domestic property. AG Automation Ltd have over the years worked very closely with the leading manufacturers of electric gate equipment, ensuring a high quality product and back up service.
Underground electric gates systems are very popular due to their very nature of being hidden in the ground under the gate hinges. This method gives a clean look to your beautifully crafted gates. Underground gate operators do require additional work to install, with suitable drainage and soak-aways to allow for any water to escape. These gate motors, when fitted correctly are very reliable and many now meet safety standards with force limitation built in – no need for additional safety edges in most cases.
The most common above ground gate automation system are rams. These gate motors are mounted on to the rear of the gate where they push and pull the gate open and closed. Rams are a great alternative to underground systems. Rams are highly efficient and so are perfect for large wind effected gates. With built in force sensing and limitation, rams also meet current safety standards – no need for additional safety edges in most cases.
Electric sliding gates are a great solution where there is limited room for swing gates or if the ground is uneven. Sliding gates can be installed on a track, or if space allows can be as a canter-lever where the gate floats with no ground track. All our sliding gate motors have force limitation built in, and in most cases will comply with the current regulations.
AG Automation Ltd are full members of the DHF independent safety body for the electric gate industry. Safety of every system installed by AG Automation Ltd is paramount. All our electric gates comply
fully with regulations and best practices laid out by the DHF. All our engineers are fully trained and certificated with the DHF to ensure your gates are always in a safe reliable condition.
