The driving force behind your gate.

Automatic Sliding Gate Driveway Gate Systems are best suited to sites with level surface and used when there is limited space, or where upward sloping driveways make swing gates impractical.

Paved, concrete or asphalt (with a suitable concrete foundation) driveways that provide a clear surface for the gate guide rail track to be mounted onto is best.

Gravel driveways are not suited as the gravel builds up on the gate guide rail track which interrupts the Sliding Gate Operation.

Common problems experienced when this happens is that the auto reverse sensor will be activated as the automated gate thinks it is hitting an object, resulting in the gate reversing itself back into the open position.

This will then compromise the expected security of the premises as the gate automation logic controller will hold the gate open until the obstacle is cleared to minimise further long-term damage to the sliding gate operator.
