Frequently Asked Questions
How are automatic swing gates powered?
All of our swing gates are primarily powered by hydraulic drive systems, although occasionally electro mechanical systems are used. Swing gates can be automated with visible above ground gate operating systems or concealed below ground operating systems.
At Breezemount we custom build all of our swing gates to our client’s exact specification. They are powered using our specially designed Saracen range of above ground ‘Saracen A’ and below ground ‘Saracen B’ swing gate operators.
With a 100% duty rating, Saracen swing gate operators offer guaranteed performance for intensive use applications.
What power supply do I need for security gates?
Can swing gates open outwards?
Traditionally, swing gates open inwards towards a property in the direction that the vehicle or visitors enter the property. This is the safest means of opening, and one that most people will expect to see. Gates should not swing outside of the property boundary as they could collide with a passing vehicle or pedestrians. If space is limited, a bifold gate is the ideal solution, as it operates within a small footprint.
Are electric gates expensive to run?
It does not cost much to operate an electric gate system. It will vary depending on how many times the electric gates are opened and closed per day. On average, when a gate is on standby, it consumes around 100w of electricity a day. If the gates are in use continuously, they can use up to 1000w per day.
Can electric gates be opened manually?
All electric gates must have a manual release mechanism which enables owners to override the system in the event of a power outage. The manual release mechanism will vary depending on the gate operating system, but often requires a manual key at the motor. As part of the commissioning on any new system, our engineers will demonstrate how to operate the gate manually and hand over any necessary keys to do so. The manual release is also checked during our routine maintenance visits.
Do gates improve security?
One of the most popular reasons for installing an automatic gate is for security purposes. Safe and secure electric gates are an excellent deterrent. They also keep children and pets out of harm’s way by preventing them from running into busy roads. When security gates are combined with an access control system, this enhances privacy enabling property owners to choose who enters the property. Some modern entry systems also allow for remote access.
What is a custom-made gate?
No two entrances or driveways are ever the same. Having a gate made to measure gives you the flexibility to create a gate which is perfectly suited to its application and surroundings. Custom-made gates can be manufactured from all kinds of materials and are designed in line with our client’s specific requirements. You can choose from a wide selection of entry system options with additional functionality and features that regular gates do not have. The real benefit of custom-made gates is greater flexibility in terms of size, function, materials and design. At Breezemount, our experienced team will assess your site and consider functionality, size and aesthetic design before deciding upon the best automatic gate solution for your premises.
