Looking for the single gate Kit MyShark, then view our range of single swing gate openers.

The GateMotors Kit MyShark underground kit is our premier product offering the most visually and aurally discreet gate automation system; will open outwards or inwards if required.

This kit is one of our most popular and is recommended for new and existing swing gates, up to 3 metres each, hung on posts or pillars. May be fitted to gates that open outwards or inwards. Opening angles up to 180° (angles between 90° - 180° requires optional adaptor) may be achieved dependent on gate hinge position.

The operators are non-reversible and therefore don’t need the inconvenience or expense of an additional electric lock to keep them closed.

If you don't want unsightly above ground stops, then this unit is ideal as it has in-built Opening Limit Stops & Closing Limit Stops which fit into the underground motor chambers to restrict the movement at the limits of travel.

The motor mechanics are buried within secure steel (choose from galvanised or stainless) underground foundation boxes so as not to compete with the aesthetics of your gates; all that can be seen is the steel lid covering the operator box and a very small unobtrusive operator attached to the bottom edge of the gate leaf.

As the motors are contained underground, environmental noise intrusion is minimal. Designed for an intensive use by using a die-casting structure made of quality aluminium, stainless steel, bronze and steel.

The fluid-grease lubrication system and the built-in thermal protection ensures a long-lasting working life in any weather conditions without the need for periodic maintenance.

The aerial within the kit is pre-installed and has a range of approx 30m.


Please note: the remotes that you receive with this kit may be a different colour to what's shown in the image.


The new MyGate Q80 Control Board used with the MyGate MyShark: Includes an in-built obstacle detection feature for an extra level of safety. The gate will come to a stop and start reversing if it comes into contact with anything. This is a welcome extra safety precaution over and above safety photocells. This is an ideal feature if you have children or people going in, out and around the gate.

This sensitivity of this feature can be altered to help cope in windy situations where gusts of wind could be interpreted as an abstacle.


Blank Installation Guide

The GateMotors Kit MyShark underground kit foundation box is installed beneath the gate at the foot of the hinge pillar.

The minimum distance between the vertical centre line of the hinges and the inner face of the pillar is 65mm. There must also be at least 65 mm between the lid of the foundation box and the bottom of the gate.

Remember if fitting underground drivers to wooden gates, it will be necessary to clad the gate bottom edge with metal to spread the load and to give something to attach the motor shoe. If you don't, the push-pull from the high torque will eventually split the wood.

Installation Hint:

When fitting Kit MyShark underground motors you will need a minimum of 65mm from your gate hinge point to the post.  Though soak-aways may be adequate, we recommend that you drain the motor case properly to lower lying land where possible.

All underground motors will operate underwater when new, but if left submerged, it is likely that water will eventually enter the motor and / or cable insulation will become porous. It is better to correctly drain the foundation cases from day one to protect your investment! Some additional fabrication/welding may be necessary to connect the drive shoe to your gates.

If you only have a single gate and you are not sure if you need a right-hand or left-hand kit? Don't worry - the Kit MyShark is ambidextrous!

    * 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.

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.
