E8 Swing Gate Opener

March 2017
I’m writing to say how satisfied I am with the gate opener I purchased from you about 12 months ago. The unit has been faultless since its installation and the installation instructions were excellent and unambiguous. 2 days ago I had a an issue with the battery failing. The support I received in diagnosing the problem was just great. After 35 years as an engineer believe me this kind of service isn’t common. I was surprised also that you instructed me to provide an invoice for the new battery as it was still under warranty. I suspected that batteries would not be covered under warranty. You offered it without any request from me. Thanks again for an excellent product and after sales backup.

I ordered the dual E8 swing gate opener from BMG imports. Not only has the product been of high quality, but the customer service was exceptional. From the first contact and the provision of timely (and competitive) quotes, through to the technical support that was provided when some engineering “hurdles” were encountered, the staff at BMG Imports were exceptional. I now have a set of gates that open at my every command! Thanks BMG Imports.

Hi Team, Just a quick note to let you know i completed the install of our new remote controlled gate and it is looking and working brilliantly. I must admit that when we came to you to buy our gate i didn't think i would end up installing it. After Grant talked us through the process it seemed a lot easier. Everyone involved could not have been any more helpful (sorry about having to ring you on the weekend Barry) and thanks for putting up with my multiple weekday calls Nicole asking what must have seemed obvious questions.

The E8 solar powered unit for a double swinging gate was a breeze to fit, and the backup when I needed advice was readily forthcoming. Opening to 108 degrees and from 60 metres plus. The function is a joy to behold. Happiness is an E8 from BMG.

Thanks Nicole for the lovely work you all have done. Everyone in our street loves the fence and few of them have followed the same. So thank you again for your kindness and helping us with the great project. Keep up the good work.

I have been using a solar gate opener from BMG for over ten years now and it is still going strong. I have also installed a solar double gate and keypads for a friend. The support from everyone at BMG has been amazing, even on a Sunday. You don't get support like that from other companies. I would highly recommend the products supplied by BMG and will be using them in the future.

E8 Swing Gate Opener

July 2016
Would like to add that I have just completed the install of an E8 kit 400 double gate opener from BMGI as well. Very happy with the outcome!
I ordered via email/phone including additional remotes and the "pre-wire" option for $45. Worth every cent as the electrician found it extremely helpful and relatively easy to wire up.
I consider myself moderately handy with tools and was able to physically install the actuators to the posts and gates myself. I left the power supply, wiring and mounting of the control box to the electrician. The whole thing took the electrician 3 hours but much of that was "wasted" grinding a small trench between the two posts so he can run the cable for one of the actuators. Also had to run the cables into the subfloor then out again to another location as it wasn't possible to put the box right next to the gate (large aircon close to the gates). I suspect that for most it would probably take an electrician only an hour, maybe a little bit more to complete.
Highly recommended!
Edit: FYI – installed the non-solar version so required 240v power.

DC500 Slide Gate Opener

January 2016
10 out of 10 for BMG. My mate and I have just installed a DC500 solar powered sliding gate kit supplied by BMG in about 6 hours start to finish. It's terrific !!! Totally satisfied that the product was everything I had expected of it. It works great and was straightforward to install, once the instructions sink in. The electrical aspect was beyond me but my mate sorted that out, so I didn't need to resort to phoning BMG over the Xmas holidays although they gave me a number and said they wouldn't mind if I did. Can't ask for better customer service than that!!
My wife said she was holding her breath in fear that the project was going to turn into a disaster, Xmas would be gloomy. But the opposite turned out to be the case.
For they are jolly good fellows
for they are jolly good fellows
for they are jolly good fellows
and so say all of us
Hip Hip Hooray !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have just installed a BMGI gate opener (Kit 500) and am impressed with the product. Obviously there are important aspects in the installation to consider and trying to decipher the "Chinglish" in the Keypad manual is daunting but overall everything went well. I extended the wireless 'antenna' cable outside the control box to improve the range (we are in the Perth Hills) by using 2 * heatshrink cables (1.5mm then another 2.5mm over top) to make the white cable firmer and stand up. One tip – doing the install requires 2 people! Running 6 * M8 bolts for the actuator arm bracket through 3mm thk 100 x 100mm GI square pipe requires two heads to ensure everything is level – posts, gate, actuator arm, etc. Grant answered my numerous questions pre-order promptly. Good product and recommended. . .my chooks can free range now without a dog attacking them!

Just installed a BMGI swing gate opener. Seems to work well. I wanted to get a wide opening (about 120 degrees) so positioning the mounting points was a bit tricky. So I've created a little Excel sheet (using the solver add-in) to work out the placement. Click here if anyone else wants to use it (you need to download it). This should work for other linear gate openers as well. You need to know the minimum and maximum extension lengths and the minimum angles at open and closed (I've seen 5 degrees mentioned, but greater would be better).

I then went with BMGI (Grant) and they have been super, seriously. I'm a little clueless with electronics / solar / stuff like that but Grant has been there answering all my questions pre and post purchase. The install wasn't too difficult either.
Double swing gate opener with 20w solar panel. It hasn't missed a beat. I'm so happy with my purchase and would recommend BMGI to anyone. Any questions let me know again happy to recommend them!

We have had ours in for 7 months now and it has not missed a beat. All came in a kit with instructions I assembled and installed. A lot of the cheaper ones only have 10w solar panel ours has 20w. We got 3 remotes, keypad for entry and a push button for exit. We have 2 swing gates 2m ea long and it was $1050.00 delivered. Very happy with the quality.
