Driveway Gate Motors

Motorized driveway gates make it a lot more convenient to enter or leave a secured property. There are several types of driveway gate motors, because different types of gates require operators that can handle it’s weight and action. They can be screw-driven, belt-driven, chain-driven, or hydraulic, depending on whether you’ve got a single or double swing gate, or a sliding gate. Some properties require some special engineering due to the terrain, such as a drive that runs uphill with a swing gate installed.

Most residential installations of automatic driveway gates use electric gate motors, though really heavy gates, and those over 16 feet wide call for hydraulic gate operators to handle the increased load. It’s never a good idea to push the limits of a gate operator, like anything mechanical, it causes too much wear on the motor and assisting parts, and increases the possibilities of failure and repair. Your driveway entry will be much more reliable with the proper gate motor from a quality brand with a reputation for reliability and a long operating life.

While we sell, install, and service all makes and models of automated gate openers, but as with anything else, some are better choices than others. Saving money at installation time can cost you a lot more down the road, not to mention presenting you with decreased security, and increased frustration or delays in getting on with your day. We highly recommend the top four brands for smooth, quiet operation, and long-lasting reliability. That’s the secret to saving money on your electric driveway gates.

Does your gate motor move your driveway gates fluidly without making a lot of noise? If not, you don’t have the right equipment. It could be the operator’s motor isn’t up to the task, or the gate was originally installed on the wrong kind of hinges. Both situations put way too much strain on the motor, it’s a breakdown in the making.
