Do I need Gate Stops for my installation?

Gate Stops are an essential part of any automatic gate installation. Our gate motors are programmed to work on resistance; this means that they need to feel resistance to know that they are fully open or fully closed.

The electric gates opening systems are fully customisable, so you can tell the gates exactly how far you want them to open. They will then always open to this set degree, but will also be looking for resistance for confirmation. If the motors do not feel resistance they will give an extra turn to ensure they are fully open or fully closed. Therefore over a period of several cycles the gates will fall out of sync and will either under-close or over-open. As a result, adding Gate Stops to your automatic gate installation is a quick and easy way to regulate the cycle and to ensure they are working to their optimum.
