Product Overview

The Proteco Kit Ace swing gate kits combine quality performance and sleek design at a competitive price. 

The Proteco Kit Ace is powerful, quiet and compact.

 

Kit Suitability 

The Proteco Kit Ace has linear ram (straight arm) motors which mount on brackets (highlighted in yellow below) attached to the pillars.

For optimum leverage and mechanical advantage the motors should be mounted where the A & B measurements are equal as per table below:

 

A B Measurements with Bracket

 

 

Kit Ace 3TI

Kit Ace 4TI

A 150mm 200mm
B 150mm 200mm
D 150mm (Max) 200mm (Max)

 

Before purchasing this kit it is important to note the width of your post/pillar and hinge position.

Your post/pillar must be wide enough to fix the bracket so the A & B measurements can be achieved for the motor you require.

 

Installation Advice

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.

 

Gate Stops 

These electric gate motors require a physical stop at the end of the opening and closing cycle. Gate Stops provide resistance to the motors so they know they've reached either the open or closed position. Without gate stops the motors will over extend during their operation and the mechanism will eventually fail. When assessing your gate-way it is important to check you can install physical stops in both the closing and opening positions. Common reason's why gate stops cannot be installed are a sloping driveway or the gate is raised significanlty off the ground. If you cannot install something to provide resistance at either end of the motors cycle then you will require a specialised ram with in-built mechanical stops.

Gate Automation

Please select what type of automation you require for your gate/s. Double & Single Swing refer to motors which attach to the gate and pillar of a swing motion gate. Double & Single Underground refer to motors which lay beneath the ground which attach to the hinge end of swing motion gates. Choose Sliding if you require lateral moving gate automation and Wheeled if you require a motor which utilises a wheeled motor to drive your gate/s.

Motor Voltage

There are two types of power outputs to consider - 24v & 230v. If you need a higher number of operations (opened/closed more than 5-6 times in an hour) during peak periods such as the morning and evening, then you may wish to consider a 24v system.

24v systems are more suitable for higher operation levels as they tend to run cooler than 230v gate motors. However, they do cost more in relative terms, so if you only need to open or close the gate 1-5 times an hour then a 230v system might prove more cost-efficient.

24v motors tend to be used on commercial premises, whereas 230v tend to be used on standard domestic properties. The exception to this rule is sliding gate motors where the reverse is true - 24v sliding gate automation systems tend to be for domestic use, 230v for more intense use (commercial/communal).

24v systems can draw power from battery backup systems meaning they can still operate during any mains power cut (a 230v or 3 phase system would need to be opened with a manual release key).

24v systems can also utilise solar power units as a means of charging batteries, allowing you to site gate automation in rural and remote locations where mains power is unavailable.

Specifications can be found for each product from their datasheet. Each datasheet is downloadable from each product page on this website.

Weight of Gate

All electric gate motors operate up to a maximum weight. This is so the gate will operate in a reliable and safe manner. It is essential to know the weight of each gate leaf in order to choose the correct motor for you installation. If you do not know the weight of your gate/s, send us a photo along with the gate/s dimensions and we can advise.

Gate Width

As with weight, gate motors are designed for gates within certain dimensions. The most important dimension is the width of the gate. To ensure you select the right motor to operate your gate you must know the width of each gate that requires automation.

Opening Angle

Each motor has a maximum angle to which it can operate to. Therefore it is important to note how far the gate needs to open in order for a vehicle to enter/exit safely.

Daily Use

The amount of times your gate is used per day is a determining factor when deciding on the right motor for your usage. Motors are designed to operate within a certain capacity (operations per day) so choosing a motor compatible with your desired use is essential for its durability. Select from the options below the number of times (open & closure = 1 x operation) the gate/s will be operated on an average day.
