The Kit Shark underground kit from Proteco. Built with a strong gearing system made out of bronze and a noiseless, powerful & waterproof aluminium gear motor. Using this type of  operator is a discreet way to automate a gate.

It allows for an opening angle up to 110° (standard) or 180° (adapter needed) with built-in adjustable mechanical limit switches in open and close positions. This kit can be configured to open outwards or inwards as required.

The Kit Shark is suitable for new or existing swing gates (each gate leaf up to 3 metres each) which are hung on posts or pillars.

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 & 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.

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.

 

Installation Advice

The Proteco Kit Shark foundation box should be installed beneath the gate at the foot of the hinge pillar. The minimum distance required 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.

Blank Installation Guide

If fitting underground drivers to wooden gates it will be necessary to clad the bottom edge of the gate with metal to spread the load and also provide something to attach the motor-shoe. Furthermore, without metal cladding the push-pull from the high torque will eventually split the wood and damage the gate.

All underground motors will operate underwater when new, but if left submerged, it is likely that water will eventually enter the motor and the 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.

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.
