Our swing solar gate opener is suitable for driveway gates opening inwards or outwards of the property giving you the versatility and adaptability of your gate, land and surroundings.  Our automatic gate opener will support a maximum gate weight of 250kgs with double gates allowing up to 3.5mtrs each and single gates up to 4mtrs long.  The actuator arms are of high grade stainless steel (rating 439) providing little to no maintenance on your behalf.  All components are in a weather proof control box with easy accessibility.  The automatic gate openers are equipped with a manual override if needed with 2 release keys supplied.  The opener is fitted with an obstruction-sensing feature that automatically stops and reverses the gate when it encounters an obstacle during close mode.

Solar Gate Opener - Slide

solar gate openerOur slide gate opener is suitable for gates up to 5mtrs long, 400kgs in weight and must open and close along a completely flat surface (giving you approximately 30 openings and 30 closings on a fully charged battery).  The opener has a manual override which you are supplied with 2 release keys as well as an obstruction-sensing feature that automatically stops and reverses the gate when it encounters an obstacle during close mode (we also recommend photocells for extra safety).

For both automatic gate openers, the battery recharges through the day using solar energy through your 20watt solar panel (panel must receive a minimum of 6 hours sunlight a day) offering a more energy efficient and reliable solution.

These gate openers have an automatic closing mode which can be set upon installation.

All of our gate openers come with a 12 months warranty, back to base
