The Electric Gate Kit Buyers Guide

Electric Gate Kit Buying Guide

 
Thinking of buying an electric gate kit online? Be sure to read this guide covering the basics of electric gate installations built by our electric gate experts. As always if you are unsure about anything regarding your install please seek advice from a qualified electrician or electric gate professional.


 
  1. The first thing you should consider is which kit will be suitable for your gates. If you need a hand you can use our easy to use electric gate motor guide.
  2. Adjustable brackets give you plenty of freedom when mounting a motor to give you the required geometry. These are highly recommended when installing gate automation with brock or wooden pillars.
  3. All kits come with a pair of photocells but an additional pair, often on posts, prevents the gate from opening into a vehicle
  4. The most important thing you need to think about the safety of your gate. We always quote with safety edges and a general rule of thumb is to cover all edges that when opening up against a restriction less than 200mm when open. Also down the centre of the gate is key
  5. Intercoms are a great way to allow access from your gate via audio or video link from the comfort of your home.
  6. Simply want to control your gate from your phone? Add the Remootio device to your basket and enjoy access management from your fingertips.
