Ocean Avenue, Double Bay - Automatic Gate System
Site: Ocean Avenue, Double Bay
This week we completed an upgrade on a Ditec gate operating system that had been installed by another company in 2011. The underground gate operators had not lasted well on this site and it was disappointing to have to advise the client that new operators were required.
In order to provide a reliable and cost effective solution we installed a pair of FAAC 391 Swing Gate Operators.
The FAAC swing gate operators were the ideal choice as the gate operators were mounted off the large piers and opened outwards. Along with the new swing gate operators we also installed Photo-Electric Safety Beams to ensure the gates would not open onto a vehicle if it stopped to close to the gates as they are outward swinging. Auto close of the Automatic Gate System has been set up utilising a second set of safety beams. The beams signal the gate operating system once a vehicle has entered or exited the property and the gates then automatically close.
On completion of all works we programmed the clients existing remote controls into the Automatic Gate and Garage Door System. A successful result was achieved on completion of all works.
