5 Bar Gates - Single Farm Gate Opener Systems
We supply a wide range of gate automation systems for five bar estate gates or large single farm gates. All our single gate kits come as standard with a Viro V96 electric lock. The electric lock protects the motors from being forced and adds extra security to the system. "If it needs it we include it".
Choosing Your System
We provide electric gate kits to cover all wooden farm type estate gates, metal seven bar farm gates and large single wrought iron gates. The maximum single wing size we can automate is 6m.
The stroke of the motor is more important than the power. At the Electric Gate Shop we only recommend the use of a 410mm or 510mm stroke, to give you a long trouble free life
Remember your gates are on hinges and you can swing them by hand, you dont want a motor that can move 1/2 ton, you need one that will move your gates and still trip off if it hits an obstruction easily.
Our gate kits are matched so when they are working they are set at half power. This gives you the ability to turn the power up or down. We dont sell gate motors that need to run on full power.
On wooden estate gates and steel seven bar farm gates, we recommend fitting the motor to the top bar. If your gates are hinged between the posts the motor will fasten to the back face of the post, however if the gates are hinged from the back face you can still automate them but a longer bracket is required.
