If you’re just starting out on your Gate Automation project you may think that all motors are the same, well they’re not!
It makes sense to avoid expensive mistakes and get your installation right first time. We would recommend that you limit your search to Italian Gate Motors, they’re the market leaders and have years of experience in producing quality motors that will last.
The first thing to do is take accurate measurements of your particular installation, noting the width weight of each individual gate, the maximum degree of opening required and for Swing Gates in particular the measurements of the pillar at the point where the hinges are to be mounted.
You can now make a list of the Gate Motors that are suitable for your installation and fit into your budget. Do also take into account additional items like intercoms and any gate safety that may be required.
The majority of Automated Gates Systems are capable of being installed as a self install DIY project.
If you need any help in selecting the right system for your installation, just call the team at GateMotors.co.uk and we’ll be happy to advise you ( +44(0)1202 717 191 (office hrs) ).
