If you decide that you would like the convenience of having your sliding gate automated we can do that. We can even retrofit a motor to an existing sliding gate.

All our automatic swing gates use low voltage motors of a range from 24 volt up to 240 volt. The size of the motor for an automatic sliding gate depends on the weight of the gate.

Most domestic automatic sliding gates do not weigh more than 300kg so only a small motor is needed. This is unless they are made of wrought iron or stainless steel).

The opening and closing speed of the gate can vary from around 200mm per second to 950mm per second.

The following are just some of the many styles of sliding gates (including automatic sliding gates) that you can choose from:
