AG Automation Ltd have forged strong relationships with the leading manufacturers of electric gate equipment, high quality steel and hardwood gates, ensuring a high quality product, installation and back up service.
Underground electric gate 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, when installed correctly, do require additional work to install. With suitable drainage and soak-aways to allow for any water to escape. These gate motors, when fitted with sufficient drainage, are very reliable and many now meet safety standards with force limitation built in – no need for additional safety edges in the majority of cases.
Above ground Rams 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, highly efficient and are perfect for large wind effected gates, or in areas where undergound motors would be prone to flooding. 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 all cases will comply with the current regulations.
