GATE AUTOMATION FOR GEM ESTATES
We were asked to try to fix one of our customer’s gates, who couldn’t understand why they constantly stopped working. The problem was that the original installation had used a electric underground motors.
These are great motors for the domestic market, but as this was a complex that has over 40 properties, the motors just couldn’t handle the amount of traffic on a daily basis, and were failing.
As a result, we suggested that we upgrade the motors, to hydraulic pistons. These were more than suitable, to handle the amount of traffic at this facility.
Also we identified that the gates were not safe, as there was nothing to stop them from crushing either a car or a person.
As a result we installed photo cells and safety edges to bring them up to today’s standards.
