Automation of existing single swing gate - Mc Leod Street, Mosman – Lower North Shore
Client brief: to automate an existing single swing driveway gate - 'outward swinging gate'
The challenge with this installation is that the existing gate was clad with timber making it extremely heavy and it was 'outward swinging'. Swing gate operators are designed for inward swinging gates, in this situation we manufactured custom brackets to allow the gate operator to open the swing gate into the fully open position giving the client as much space as possible to enter and exit the property through the gate. The gate swinging outward allows for vehicles to park immediately inside the gate area without requiring the space that would be needed for the gate to open/ close into if it swung inward.
Photo-Electric Safety Beams have been installed to ensure that if a car drives up to the gate and within the outward opening area of the gate that it will not operate until the area has been cleared. An electric lock has been installed to ensure full security and locking of the gate system, this prevents the gates been able to be forced open for unauthorised access.
