This kit has 3 year limited warranty, the first year being with GateMotors, the remaining years being direct with the manufacturer. The motors themselves have a 3 year limited warranty all other electrical items have a 1 year warranty, see the warranty FAQ page for more details.
The GateMotors Kit MyDiamond electromechanical ram kits are a cost effective method of gate automation. They are ideal where the gates are hung in the middle of the posts, or close to the edge of the pillars (see diagrams on the Technical Info page). Their advantage over the Gatemotors Kit MyAster or other traditional ram styled kits is their slim-line design and slightly more powerful motor. The rams are non-reversible and therefore don’t need the inconvenience or expense of an additional electric lock to keep them closed.
The Kit MyDiamond motor is available in a number of different strokes and also in a TI as well as a TA version. The Kit Diamond TA FC has two advantages by enclosing the screwjack within a pipe, water ingress to the motor through use is reduced, it also has inbuilt limit stops ( on closing ) therefore removing the need for a mid-stop.
You can achieve up-to 120° opening angles, depending on hinge position and model in use. This is suited to gate openings of up to 8m (3.5m per leaf) and maximum gate weight of up to 200Kg per leaf. This motor is only suited to inward opening gates. See the limits of use below as the maximum weight will vary depending on which type of kits is used on what length of gate.
The GateMotors slimline Kit MyDiamond is designed for intensive use; motors are constructed of quality die-cast aluminium with stainless steel, bronze and steel parts.
The fluid-grease lubrication system, polyester powder-paint coating, self-lubricating worm gear and built-in thermal protection system ensure quiet operation and a long working life in all weather conditions, without the need for periodic maintenance.
The in-built aerial within the kit is pre-installed and has a range of approx 30m.
These diagrams show the gates closed and the operator mounting brackets fixed to the back face of each pillar (from inside the property).
With all linear automation (straight arm motor) the laws of geometry do apply. These are a series of measurements that aid the motors to pivot on its triangular mounting bracket. If the measurements are not achieved, the motor will not pivot on its bracket and the gate will fail to achieve its full opening angle.
Below pictures are birds-eye views of two types of typical gate leaf mounting:
FIG 1 – Gate leaf hinged in the centre of the pillar
FIG 2 – Gate leaf hinged on corner of the pillar
The Kit Diamond operator and bracket are positioned so as dimensions A & B comply to the installation instructions supplied with the kit.
The values are dependent on the Kit Diamond model selected.
Dimensions to Achieve
For the Kit Diamond 3Ti
A = 145mm
B = 145mm
For Kit Diamond 4Ti
A = 195mm
B = 195mm
For Kit Diamond 4TA
A = 195mm
B = 195mm
IF DIMENSIONS FOR THE INSTALLATION ARE NOT ACHIEVED, THE MOTOR(S) WILL FAIL AND MAY BREAK. DAMAGES TO THE MOTOR(S) RESULTING FROM INADEQUATE INSTALLATION IS NOT COVERED UNDER OUR GUARANTEE
When fitting the gate brackets to a wooden gate, we recommend that you insert stainless steel tubing (just large enough to sleeve the mounting bolt threads, and 1mm shorter than the thickness of the wood) through the gate mounting holes.
This will prevent over-tightening of the mounting bolts, and also avoid the repetitive push-pull on the mounting bolts from damaging the wood.
If you only have a single gate and you are not sure if you need a right-hand or left-hand kit?
The motor is usually mounted on the inside of the property for security; so view the gates from inside the property looking outwards (the gates will normally, but not always, swing toward you).
If the hinge appears on the left, you need a left-hand kit; if it's on the right you need a right-hand kit.
For more information on the electrical cabling requirements for this system please see our electric gate cabling guide.
Kit Diamond optional upgrades and accessories include:
* gate stops (all of our gate motors require some form of resistance at the end of the opening & closing phase.)
* underground exit loop (detects the presence of a vehicle and automatically opens the gate)
* extra photocells
* additional key fobs
* intercom kit
* extended range (external) aerial
Please Note: It is solely the responsibility of the recipient or the client / specifier – to ensure that the products described are suitable for purpose (see fitting guide under downloads) & comply with the relevant building regulations.
