Underground Gate Motors

One of the most popular kinds of gate automation is the underground motor. Once correctly installed, there will be no apparent sign of the motor other than the lid of the foundation box, and the shoe that attaches to the bottom of the gate. This can help to increase the overall asthetics of your gates and driveway. Underground automation can be fitted to both new and existing gates. They are also suitable for both wooden or metal gates.

Advantages of the underground system:

  • The best looking gate system, discreet and quiet, a favourite with property developers
  • Very powerful underground motors
  • Perfect for ornate steel entrance gates
  • Very hard to tamper with
  • They can open to 180┬░ with an adaptor
  • 240 volt or 24 volt available

Disadvantages of the underground system:

  • Requires groundwork to install, i.e. holes big enough for the mechanism and also proper soakaways to drain surplus water away.
  • Susceptible to flooding the motor chambers, the drainage is important
