Automatic Sliding Driveway Gates - Marrickville - Inner West
Automatic Sliding Driveway Gate - Marrickville
Installed: July 2015
Site description: a strata block consisting of twelve apartments at Marrickville
Brief: The strata manager requested a quote to supply, install and commission an Automatic Sliding Driveway Gate System to secure the open car parking area for the residents.
The site already had an existing older style colourbond fence (Powder coat colour: Cottage Green), the new Automatic Sliding Driveway Gate was to match the existing fence.
The panels beside the driveway had been damaged so to assist in keeping the costs down we retained the existing posts which were in good order and replaced the damaged panels ensuring the fence was restored to new and matched in with the new Automatic Sliding Driveway Gate System.
As the driveway gate was to run on a slight slop and was fully clad with colourbond panels we used an ‘ARES” sliding gate operator.
The ‘ARES’ sliding gate operator is a strong motor ideal for a heavy gate operating on a slope and it easily handles multiple operations a day ensuring the gate can be kept locked at all times and operated by the individual residents as required.
Heavy duty reflective Photo-Electric Safety Beams were installed to ensure safety of the electric gate system, these beams will detect if a vehicle, person or any other object is stopped in the gate’s path, it will stop the electric gate from operating until the path of the driveway gate has been cleared and is safe for the automatic gate to continue operating.
Key ring remote controls have been supplied to all occupants allowing easy opening as they approach the gate to enter or exit the car park area. Once the vehicle has entered or exited the car park area the gate automatically closes.
