These diagrams show the gates closed and the operators fixed to the inside edge of each pillar (inside the property). The plan view diagrams below show the operator and gate closed and open. The dimension A, between the pillar mounting face of the operator and the centre line of the gate, can be up to 300mm. Dimension B is recommended to be 30mm.
When fitting the gate brackets to a wooden gate, we recommend that you insert stainless steel tubing (just large enough to sleeve the mounting bolt threads, and 1mm shorter than the thickness of the wood) through the gate mounting holes. This will prevent over-tightening of the mounting bolts, and also avoid the repetitive push-pull on the mounting bolts from damaging the wood.
Only a single gate? Not sure if you need a right-hand kit or left-hand kit? The motor is usually mounted on the inside of the property for security; so view the gates from inside the property looking outwards (the gates will normally, but not always, swing toward you). If the hinge appears on the left, you need a left-hand kit; if it's on the right you need a right-hand kit.
Options include: underground exit loop (detects the presence of a guest’s vehicle and automatically opens the gates for them); extra photocells; additional key fobs; intercom kit; long range (external) aerial; flashing beacon.
