Gate Automation

Security, Functionality and Appearance

gates barriers banner web

Without doubt, an automated access system such as oen of our swing or sliding gate systems, will enhance your property boundaries security, which also enhancing the appearance and value of your property.

The effects of a stylish gate entrance always has a positive effect on the value of the property and often propspective buyers comment on the functionality and look of the gate system.

Most installations for the residential preperty owner will be either:

  • an automated one-piece sliding gate system, 
  • double swing gates, operated by a cantilever swing arm
  • or a  single swing gate (one single gate covering the full driveway access, and also operated by a cantilever swing arm

The commercial systems include the above options (though in a heavier duty configuration), as well as additional options such as boom gates, chain barriers, and automated bollard systems.

All can be further configured wit visual and audio warning systems (flashing lights and beep alarms), and a battery backup system can also be incorporated.

Solar charging is an additional option.

All systems have their advantages and disadvantages but generally the key ones are as follows.

  • Sliding gates have the advantage of taking up the minimal amount of space when opening.
  • Double swing gates provide a more “classy” feel as they open and generally the opening time is lessened as there are two gates opening together.
  • Single swing gates are usually the most economical option to automate as you are only installing one drive mechanism on the system.

The Right Components For The Job

Belfast Security Systems understand that not all jobs are the same, and that each installation may require a different component, such as the drive motor, to suit individual circumstances.

This is exactly why we install components from a variety of suppliers, each suited to the particular job required of it.

Whether its a basic install, a sloping block, an uneven block, or any other environment, we will have the right motor to suit your application.

Sliding gates usually have a single door, which runs on a track with a ratchet rail.

They require a long and narrow space for the gate to slide along during the opening and closing phases. This type of gate is the ideal protection for wide entrances, entrances placed uphill or wherever the space inside the property is not sufficient to enable the opening of swing gates.

When choosing the motor to suit your gate, we need to consider the weight and, where necessary, the length of the travel in the gate.

We also need to consider soft closing, or gate travel adjustments, and ensure that the automation facilities cater for these features (which the majority do of course).

Safety is a primary concern, so we need to include anti-crushing machanisms, which stop the gate in the event of an obstacle (like a person, or a vehicle), being in the way of the travel.This anti-crushing/obstacle detection function stops and reverses the movement of the gate in case its movement is blocked, thus avoiding damage to people and objects.
